Join us in supporting small businesses when it matters most.

Three Etsy sellers working on their products

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.
