Let’s #StandWithSmall Together

At Etsy, small businesses are at the heart of everything we do. If you’re an Etsy shopper, chances are good that supporting independent makers, artists, and curators matters to you too. 

Whenever you come to Etsy to give your home office a little love, upgrade your loungewear collection, or send a thoughtful gift to a friend who could use a pick-me-up, you can feel good about supporting independent sellers while also bringing more goodness to your everyday.

This is a challenging time, and many of us are looking for new ways to stay creative and inspired at home. As always, we’ll continue to bring you original DIY projects, compelling maker interviews, and creative inspiration every week here on the Etsy Journal. Etsy’s Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest feeds will keep surprising you with small moments of all-too-welcome delight (like this behind-the-scenes glimpse of how a pressed-flower wall hanging from kmpressed comes to life). And our sellers will continue doing what they do best: capturing our imaginations and pushing our favorites lists to the limit with their irreplaceable creations.

Let’s stick together in the coming weeks, and #StandWithSmall whenever we can.

    Etsy is the ultimate site to get new ideas to try to be creative and busy or just keep boredom at bay in this uncertain time. Myself is trying to hone my baking skill. Trying out and recording new recipes for rustic breads or sweet pastry dough. Stay busy and healthy y'all! Thank you so much for the support!!

    I answered your call to all etsy sellers in regards to making face mask to help with the short demand. I have had some amazing customers share their current stories with me and it breaks and fills my heart at the same time. To Etsy, fellow sellers and customers, kudos for looking out for and supporting each other through this challenging time. And thanks to our 4 legged children who we can still snuggle and hug.

    Thank you so much for all your support. I have answered your call to make face masks to meet the demand. To help our community I will also be donating them to local hospitals and retirement homes - to protect our heros and vulnerable. And to all our first responders : Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!! Stay safe and God Bless !!!

    I’m so grateful to still be able to sell on Etsy during this difficult time and I’m trying to help support other Etsy sellers by buying from them when there are things I need (and sometimes things I don’t need but can’t resist!) Thank you Etsy for the opportunity and the support.

    I appreciate the wonderful Etsy commercials I've been seeing. I've just opened my shop because I am a substitute teacher with no opportunity to work currently and I really appreciate the advertising! I love the creativity of Etsy. So many talented people and products to share.
