The above picture is a white cardboard paper with Hemingway’s quotes typewritten on it. It’s selling on Etsy for $7. The folks there love it. It’s Hemingway, why not.

But I’m here sitting, wondering if I can order such. Maybe I would, maybe I would not. But does it matter?

Well, I’ve always known and considered Etsy (until recently, I didn’t know it’s pronounced Ety) as a market or studio for people who are extremely skilled at working with wires, cardboards, leathers, paints, and brushes. I’ve never thought of it as a platform where word junkies like me can make some dough.

It turned out I’d been wrong.

I learned very late that Etsy, originally designed to sell handmade crafts (handmade facemask, handmade rings, handmade guns, handmade journals – whatever in the world that can be handmade) has partly morphed into a platform for creatives and designers and writers who never want to leave their computers.

Fact, it is a place not much less than Fiverr and Upwork for landing digital gigs.

However, the work atmosphere surrounding Etsy is a vintage-like atmosphere that’s insanely creative and reeks of quality craft.

On their about us page, Etsy talks about how wonderful and weird they are. And so, welcome people with weird and wonderful ideas.

Etsy is a place for everyone. Many folks are addicted to buying on it. It’s because the platform is like a beautiful woman smoking a cigar. Nothing’s sexier.
