Alternatives To The Big Orange E

Good Morning,

The blog ring this round is featuring The Alchemists Vessel, so I thought it would be fun to offer alternatives to shopping at the Big Orange E (etsy).

If you are looking for unique gifts, handmade or eclectic items that cannot be found in a store  you might want to try 

The CraftStar

When you first arrive you will be greeted by a cover page, you can scroll down and check out unique shops, videos, and more.  There is no account necessary, you may sign up for the newsletter, read their blog or simply do a little Windows shopping.  You may also find The Alchemists Vessel shop there as well.

Handmade Artists

If you prefer an intimate shopping experience, try Handmade Artists.  Just as the title implies, this site is dedicated to all things handmade, art, painting, woodworking, glass-work and of course jewelry.   You may also find The Alchemists Vessel shop on site.

If you would like to shop without clicking through, signing up or in and being taken to another window, we have a neat trick.  From the blog click the tab "Shop Square Market" and you will find a shop right here on the blog.  Pick an item and use the Shopping Basket icon to check out. One stop, shopping is done.

So you're addicted to Etsy?  We're going to help with an intervention.  The sites above are easily navigated, friendly, intimate and offer genuine handmade items from the hands of the Shop owner.  Surf through the sea of garbage from China on Etsy, you won't find the personal touch that is so important when shopping for a gift that The CraftStar or Handmade Artists  can offer you.  Many of these shops offer custom design and will work with you to make you the perfect piece.  Why go for the same old boring Department Store shelves when you can be the envy of the party with handmade items that please the eye, delight the heart and amaze the brain.

You may find, follow, like and shop with the Alchemists Vessel at any of the links below or the handy icons on the sidebar menus will whisk you away to the site of choice.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.
