So there are only a couple weeks left before Christmas...agh! Here's a quick pitch to encourage you to consider shopping at Etsy this holiday season. Etsy is basically an online marketplace that brings together artisans to help them sell their crafts. Or in their own words:
Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.
At Ride the City we support Etsy by maintaining their logo on our mapping page, directing visitors to Etsy's page for all things related to the word "bicycle." To check it out those products, click the image above.
Etsy is a great place to find unique products while supporting individual artisans and burgeoning small businesses. (Btw, and somewhat unrelated, on Etsy I just found this gift for our cat.)
