Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

When it comes to apps, Flipboard is one of my favorite ways to discover and dive into my favorite blogs, websites and social feeds — it’s like a magazine tailored to your tastes. Skillfully combining the beauty and ease of print with the power of social media, it makes reading, sharing and shopping pretty flippin’ fun.
Today, we have exciting news: Etsy has been given the Flipboard treatment! Etsy items and blog posts are now available within Flipboard on customized pages that contain bright photos, inspiring stories, and your favorite Etsy categories such as Art, Jewelry, Kids, Vintage and Weddings. When you find something intriguing, you can tap to buy or press the + button to save it into a Flipboard magazine.
Check it out in the Etsy section, which combines the Etsy Blog with our favorite Etsy items.


Now that Etsy is part of the new edition of Flipboard, there are many ways to collect and share stories and products. In fact, you can easily curate a personal magazine around gift ideas, projects you’d like to make at a later date, or your favorite stories. The options are endless. Happy flipping!

    I'm afraid I still feel like a luddite most of the time, but it is exciting to see all of the new ways people can connect.

  • mazedasastoat said 8 years ago

    I understand that as a business, Etsy must keep up with all the latest apps & fads in order to reach the maxiumum audience, & as a seller I appreciate that. However, a large part of me can't help thinking that encouraging the use & purchase of electronic gadgets that are immensely harmful to the planet in both production & disposal hardly sits well with the ecologically friendly ethic so many Etsy members feel so strongly about. I have no answers, but it makes me uncomfortable all the same.

  • divinecartomancy said 8 years ago

    That would be a nice change for me, I am always in front of this computer, it would be nice to check on my shop standing in line at the grocery store, or in my car as I'm heading down the road. I'm in front of this computer so often, I feel like I should be writing marriage vows and coming up with a Pre-nup.....LOL......

  • LivingVintage said 8 years ago

    Cool!

    With 50 mil+ users Flipboard this will hopefully bring in some nice press and traffic for Etsy! As an end user, I await the android version, but the new iOS update looks pretty saucy so far. For anyone unfamiliar with the app, here is a video where you can see some of the Etsy specific goodness: www.viddler.com/v/76c4f07d?secret=107094283 (scroll to 5min 11sec)

  • JudisLamps said 8 years ago

    Great idea. I love Flipboard. Who decides what Etsy items & shops are selling on Flipboard? Etsy does need more press but how are we affected as shops on Etsy?
