Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items, supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items under Etsy's new guidelines, released in October 2013. These items cover a wide range, including art, photography, clothing, jewelry, food, bath and beauty products, quilts, knick-knacks, and toys. Many sellers also sell craft supplies such as beads, wire and jewelry-making tools. All vintage items must be at least 20 years old. The site follows in the tradition of open craft fairs, giving sellers personal storefronts where they list their goods for a fee of US$0.20 per item. As of August 2013, 30 million users are registered on the website and by the end of 2013, projections of one million sellers and over US$1 billion in total annual transactions have been announced.

I am an Etsy shop owner, called The Broken Sprocket. I sell homemade steampunk and fantasy jewelry. Etsy is a great site for homemade things. To find anything you may be into at decent prices. As a seller the interface is easy and user friendly. They help you keep track of you finances and are very helpful with issues.

Its so cool to know that people are wearing my designs out there, and i am part of that. I have done wedding jewelry, birthdays and gifts. And to know people saw what i make for fun and wanted that in their big days, its such an honor.

You can use Paypal, checks and card for your payments, and is very easy to sing up. I highly support this site and recommend it to users.

If I wanted shitty, handmade bullshit I'd open the care packages from my grandma.

I'm a bit fan of this site! As a HUGE Doctor Who fan, it's great to be able to find unique, kitchy, Whovian gifts for myself and my buds.

And of course, Etsy has more than just geek-centric gifts; I was able to find my mom a beautiful Italian olive wood cutting board- something I couldn't find anywhere else!

If you're looking for a unique item, save yourself some time and come here first! You're likely to find it, all while supporting a freelance artist!

I'm a huge fan of this site! I have bought lots of products here, mostly great handmade clothing but also so many things for my wedding - cake toppers, favors, veil, shoes, etc. It was so great to have a place to find unique items that expressed my individual style and were still very affordable. I'm also a huge supporter of small businesses so I love that their is an online marketplace for artisans to sell their goods!

I like that the site has a messaging system built in so you can communicate with the vendors, though not all the vendors seem to use it so it's not completely reliable.

The History of English Podcast

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
