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.
“Furniture built to last”
“The factory, based just outside of Dallas, Texas, still makes furniture – now in leather and fabric – in just three weeks or less, a delivery standard that’s three times faster than the industry average. From the beginning, the factory was set up to manage mass customization through the latest technology and manufacturing systems, making American Leather the most automated leather furniture manufacturer in North America, if not the world. “

This company is unique-they give you options to create your own furniture (yes, they have much more than sofas), they also sell furniture that is “ready to go”, along with upholstery supplies.
THE SOFA COMPANY “You design it, we build it!”
“As you see throughout the site, we are quite proud of the fact that we produce our sofa line in the good ole USA and more specifically, Los Angeles, CA. While most of our competition has ventured abroad for cheaper price points and labor, we take pride that we continue to operate a locally run factory that supports our economy and country.”
