Etsy promotes only a handful of very special sellers on their front page. Everything they promote is carefully vetted and returns no concerns, so you can shop with confidence!
Let’s look at yesterday’s handmade favorites!
What an awesome pocket watch! That must have taken forever to make. No wonder it sold so fast!
Don’t worry if you missed it. She has more.
And if she’s sold out, try these guys.
Of course, you may not be in the market for several hundred handmade mass-produced pocket watches. So if you’re only looking for one at a time, try this seller.
He may not have that exact handmade model, but he’s sure to have something equally unique!
Or you could just do a keyword search. With thousands of handmade pocket watches, you’ll probably find something.
UPDATE: one year and over 1,000 sales later, Tempus Fugit is still going strong. Re-selling like a motherfucker, and Etsy’s do-nothing “integrity team” just looks the other way. Because NO CALLING OUT, YOU GUYS.

Oh, I know what you’re saying.
Whatever, whiney pants.
You don’t hear Handcrafts2Door complaining, do you? No you don’t, because their little collective is too busy hand sewing to bitch and moan about “unfair competition,” “factory wholesalers,” “sweatshop labor,” and all the other sad little excuses you fat, lazy fuckers keep handing out instead of working.
Turn off Dr. Phil and let’s get going. You work hard enough, you might just see your work on a wholesale website. Then you can quit your day job and move to Brooklyn, where you can drink whiskey on your bicycle and listen to ukelele music.

EXCITING UPDATE: Hey, they actually took a re-seller’s shop down!
