My summer purse.

I love Etsy. So many artisans and crafters, artists and vendors! I got a wonderful summer purse from UniquelyNancy a couple years ago, and used it until the strap wore out. I think I might make a new strap for it and use it again this summer. I love batik fabric, so I looked for a bag using that kind of material. It also had to have a long, adjustable strap. This time I found exactly what I wanted from Lisa at ItsSewDarnCute.

I've had wonderful experiences buying from various sellers on Etsy. I love supporting other self-employed artists. Even though I'm buying online from all over the U. S., it's still "buying local." It's an easy way I can help small businesses, and get exactly what I'm looking for in a special purchase. I hope that people who purchase my art and crafts feel the same way.
