Have you heard of Etsy? If not, allow me to introduce you to one of my very favorite websites. It's "your place to buy and sell all things handmade." There are actually many other parts of Etsy which I have not mentioned, so... looks like you'll just have to check out the website.
It's where all arsty, crafty, vintage-y people come together to buy and sell their wares. For now, I only fall into the "buying" part of this equation, but maybe one day I will come up with something intriguing enough to sell.
I added a new tab on the bottom of my blog featuring my favorite Etsy shops. (Just like you, Courtney....and I may have also added one of your favorite sites :) I'm sure I will be adding more as I find other sites that suck me in.
Go shop around and support people's hobbies! I do. In fact, I just ordered the most adorable custom name tags from Kiddo Tags. I would show a picture, but they are kind of a gift & I don't want to blow the surprise! For Christmas, my mom and sister got jewelry from my teacher-friend Lila at LTD Designs. Her jewelry is classy & sophisocated....yet trendy...and very versatile. In fact, here is my sister in her turquoise necklace, compliments of LTD Designs...she loves it. I wish I had a picture of my mom in her earrings but I can't seem to find a close up.
