Over the past few years, the Etsy community, a worldwide online network of independent artists, crafters, and designers, have been using a new model of economic activity. These artisans create and sell their wares from their home in a market unlike EBay or Amazon. In a recent survey of over 5000 United States sellers on Etsy, 74% believed that Etsy was a business, their business. Looking at Etsy as a lifestyle business or supplemental income, people around Toledo and Northwest Ohio are using this venue as a way to have a flexible employment, increase household income and use your talents.
