As an artist posting work on Etsy I found the volume of work to be overwhelming and extremely inconsistent.   My goal is to create a page that helps connect art collectors with artists.

      Thanks for the compliment and the shop! Finding new work on Etsy can be a very time consuming task, I appreciate any suggestions. Also, as artists we should encourage others in our field to join Etsy and expand the quality of work available on the site.

      Thanks Kate! I wanted to keep it simple and let the art speak for the artist. I like your blog as well. It has a lot of the same principles, but with a larger scope.

      Cheers, to all the art bloggers and artists in Brooklyn!

    Hi Ryan,
    I really love this site!
    Clean, simply but to the point. Highlighting very talented artists on Etsy.

  2. Thank you for doing this. Most other design/art sites that post their favorite “artists” on Etsy are little more than fad factories, regurgitating the same styles over and over, with no heart and soul behind the work. I have already gone through your all your pages and picked a few favorites.

  3. i just spent a good hour and a half browsing, and i’ve barely cracked the surface! is it possible to submit my own work for consideration?

    • Sorry for the late response. I recently moved from the east coast to the west coast. I am always looking for new artists to feature! It is becoming increasingly difficult to find new talent.

  4. I love the idea! It would be great to focus on etsy but not limit yourself as well. I have friends who have their own sites who are great artists!

  5. You have a wonderful selection of talented etsy artists here! I just opened a new shop there for my abstract paintings and will definitely use some of these folks in my Treasuries. Thank you for sharing!

  6. What a nice variety of photos and other handcrafted items! Would you consider featuring my etsy photo shop? I am a new seller and I am trying to direct new traffic to my site in hopes they will be inspired by my images from New York, South Africa, Mozambique and Zanzibar.

  7. Hello! I just found your site and am blown away by what you do! I would love it if you would visit my shop and perhaps consider it for a future blog feature. Thank you for all of your hard work!

    • Yes, it is extremely easy to set one up and a great way to get noticed. It only costs 20 cents to post an item and a small commission when it sells.

    • Great stylized pen work! I really like the way you photograph your work. I always find it difficult to capture the texture and quality of artwork.

  9. Dear Ryan, thank you very much for including my work! I really appreciate it! Best wishes from sunny Barcelona! 🙂

  10. Thank you for the opportunity to submit my Etsy Shop for possible inclusion on your site. My shop has just launched today and Best of Etsy was a fantastic source of information and inspiration which really helped me create my store.

  11. Hi, first of all thank you for maintaining this blog/site. I’ve been checking it out from time to time now. However, since I’m just starting out I’m of course trying to make people find my stuff. If you at some point want to promote and feature my shop I will be grateful and happy.
    Until then I keep following your blog and the other Etsy shops.
