Heliovdrake: Etsy has been pretty good to the soon to be future Mrs.VonDrake. It has given her a lot more self confidence then she had before.
She makes mainly LARP Costumes, Custom Dice Bags, E-Reader /Tablet Covers and assorted cool things.

In fact it has even given her, her first commercial resale order. A nice little LARP shop in Australia ordered 20 items from her shop for resale, and even offered to help grow her brand by making sure she gets credit for each item in their shop.

Even if Etsy ends up going the way of other places like Ebay. and catering to the mass producing junk makers, I'm sure someone will hopefully spot the open niche and fill it.

Right now Etsy seems to be a good place for first time crafters to get some exposure and make a nice bit of money, a place you can start selling your wares until you are ready to open your own website for just your items.

Heres her Etsy and DA links of your interested.

Heres some of her items, my favorites at least.

Liberals's favorite consumer goods, such as Apple products, vibrators and rap CD's are all manufactured by 3rd world slave labor.  The reason they use these products as they don't want to do anything that might support the USA, such as buying American made goods or employing American workers.  It is one of the reason every Democrat president has trouble filling cabinet positions because they always find the person employed slaves from the 3rd world as domestic help and refuse to pay taxes.  Also why liberals refuse to deport illegal immigrants - it will remove their supply of slave labor.  Ever since the Democrats lost the Civil War and were unable to defeat the Civil Rights Act of 1964 they have been looking for new sources of slave labor.

Pretty sure Citizens United covered this: corporations are people, so stuff from a factory is handmade. Fair and Balanced.
