Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!
“Etsy is the world’s handmade marketplace.”
“Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.”
You can find just about anything here! Beautiful, funky, unique, one-of-a -kind, gorgeous items abound. I have included some pictures below of sample products picked at random.

“Pointer Brand is for everyone at every age. It is the best fitting, most comfortable denim clothing made. Our loyal customers trust the quality workmanship, classic styles and great price. Our employees are committed, dedicated and deliver on time. We represent the phrase, Made in America.”
Holly adds: This is a relatively new company and I think they must be in the process of adding items to their online shopping inventory. I wish this company a lot of sucess.
“Based in Morgantown, West Virginia, SustainU is an American clothing company focused on changing the way clothes are made to improve the environment, reinvigorate America’s manufacturing sector, and educate the world about how clothing can positively impact people’s lives. By creating 100% recycled apparel that’s made in the USA, we want people to change the way they think about their clothing, and how they live their lives. Wear a better story.”
Holly adds: They feature a “Made in the USA” button. This is something I wish all manufacturing sites would start to provide! It would make it so much easier to go right to the products made here in the United States.
