You’ve probably noticed our popular ongoing series on AroundMainLine.com called ‘Etsy Phavorites.’ It’s a fun tribute to Philadelphia-based Etsians who are successfully running an e-commerce business through Etsy.com. For those of you still new to Etsy-in essence, Etsy is an incredibly successful online marketplace that allows small business entrepreneurs to sell handmade items, including art, photography, clothing, vintage items, craft supplies, food and much more. Many people refer to it as an ‘EBay for artisans and handcrafters.’ Time Magazine recognized Etsy as one of its’ Top 50 Websites for 2009.

On October 29th, a special article on Philadelphia-based Etsians from yours truly was featured on Etsy’s popular blog, the Storque. Check out the Shop Local Philadelphia piece and our selection of incredibly talented Delaware Valley entrepreneurs successfully selling their wares on Etsy. Some names (Krista Peel, Pearl Stationery, Jadite Kate) you will recognize through our features on AML or through our cool “Etsian of the Night” series on our Facebook Fan page. Over a hundred people commented on our Shop Local feature on Etsy, it was so cool to read the comments about our Etsy artists and the gorgeous photos that made the article so successful. Special thanks to AML staff photographers Kristen Hudson-Nichols, Laura Kicey and Vida Carson who worked very hard with me to coordinate this exceptional opportunity.

Our thriving AML Facebook page has given us a greater and instantaneous platform to find, celebrate and discuss many other Etsians from the Delaware Valley-and beyond. And many of these talented women have worked with us on fun Facebook giveaways. If you have not joined our Facebook Fan page, come check it out for yourself!

We were thrilled with the opportunity to be featured on Etsy and even more excited when our dear friends at Philly’s number one news station, NBC10, wrote a fantastic piece on AroundMainLine.com. NBCPhiladelphia.com continues to evolve its dynamic website and content and we were super pumped to see the article on AML entitled, “Philly’s First eMagazine Gets Etsy-ized.”

NBCPhiladelphia.com also put together a cool coordinating slideshow showcasing nine of our Etsy picks and personal photos of the artists. Check out the full feature and NBC’s own favorites from each Etsy shop!

Thank you Etsy.com and NBCPhiladelphia.com for this amazing opportunity to celebrate the wonderful city I love and call home, Philadelphia! Go Phils!
