Etsy is well known and a major player in the handmade and vintage arena with a marketplace that is strong on visuals, offering curated collections and suggestions and commanding a loyal and passionate following. In the UK they have a decent network of sellers who host regular meet-ups and also host offline craft fairs.

Roughly one half of sales are made on mobile devices and 30% of sales are made outside of the United States. It’s reported that something like 80% of sellers are women. And that, perhaps, goes someway to understanding its broad appeal and reputation for fantastic and unique handmade goods.

They saw sales of $766 million in the third quarter of 2017, to an active global shopping community of 32 million in more than 80 different countries. 1.9 million sellers were listing 45 million different products at the end of 2017.
