Etsy is a global marketplace for handcrafted and vintage goods. The e-commerce website has over 2.8 million sellers, 65 million items for sale, and 48 million buyers as of July 2020. In the second quarter of this year, Etsy reported $2.7 billion in sales.
The marketplace is a platform for independent creators to sell their unique, handcrafted products, and for them to build connections with buyers. Most of the trends we see online; such as slime, sloths, or unicorn merchandise, were in fact started on Etsy.
“Our mission is keeping commerce human.” – CEO of Etsy, Josh Silverman
