DIY Shopping by Color for Handmade Goodies

| Wednesday, 4 March 2009 15:52


Online handmade item marketplace Etsy offers a feature that lets you shop by color, to find stuff to perfectly match your favorite color scheme. Simply roll your mouse over the page, and cirlcles of colour will swirl around your cursor. When you see the colour you’re looking for, click on it, and images of appropriately-colored items will pop up. If you don’t like them, use you mouse to toss them out of your way.

Buying handmade pieces from artists (instead of mass-produced, tacky crap from big box decor stores) is always an amazing thing, for two main reasons. First, you get to choose a unique (often one-of-a-kind) piece that suits you and your decor perfectly. Secondly, it’s great to support any artistic practice, so that the creative and talented of the world can keep making beautiful things–and actually make a living from doing so.
