Something a little different today! I was contacted the other day by a representative at StylishHome.com and given a link that I would love to share with you.
If you don't know about StylishHome.com, they're a wonderful site for anyone interested in home decorating and interior design as well as shopping for home furnishings, etc.
StylishHome believes that shopping for home furnishings is a process of discovery. With their site, they strive to help people save time and money in the discovery process of shopping for their home furnishing by working to organize the "fragmented landscape" of home furnishing sources available to shoppers. These sources include high end designer goods, top retailers and brands, sales and discounts when available as well as hand made artisan goods.
Understanding that home decorating is a reflection of a person's individual personality and style, StylishHome's website is designed to be part shopping and part design guidance combined with a sense of community that strives to help others along.
StylishHome has presented on their blog a list of shortcuts, tips and tricks for shopping on Etsy to help sort through the hundreds of thousands of sellers and millions of handmade items that populate the Etsy site!
"We love Etsy - and, it’s a platform for the artisan that I personally want to support.
