Recessionista Time

With the recession proclaimed official, it is time to go bargain shopping. I know that we are supposed to give up shopping altogether and save, but let's be honest: the only way America is going to leave the recession in the the dust is through a little spending. Luckily, one can search for boutique-quality finds at Etsy. Etsy is an online platform to find lovely bracelets, earrings or artwork. All of the items are homemade and unique pieces. It is a legitimate treasure trove of goodies. If you are the crafty type, you can sell your items through their ecommerce site or if you are the non-crafty type (big neon arrow pointing my direction) you can find all sorts of lovely items. My personal favorites include: Ruby Rose, ovgilliesdesigns's and Galit Barak, but that is a just a small sample of a multitude of beautiful items. So give the old economy a kick start and help some entrepreneurs in the making launch their products. Promised to help cure the economy blues.
