    Question Buying Bags on Etsy?

    I've been trying to find a small/medium sized brown leather crossbody bag for a while now and haven't found one I absolutely love the look of in my price range. I've tried looking on a few different sites online; but I'm realizing that most online 'consignment' sites have products that fit the description of what I want, just out of my price range. I'm wondering if any of you have ever purchased bags off of Etsy that weren't resales of vintage designer bags, and what your experiences were.

    If you are considering Etsy, it's always good to read through the reviews and comments. Most Etsy artisans are nice people. I've never had a leather bag made by anyone on Etsy, just a fabric reversible one a long time ago to hold my yarn and hooks etc. I do know a seller who works with leather but she's only made Fauxdoris for me (a planner leather cover). I'm not too familiar with her bags but I know she makes bags too. May I ask what your price range is?

    My price range currently is around $90, a bit more or less.

    Sometimes Fair Trade can be nice too.

    I've been looking at TJMaxx for the past couple months and have yet to find what I'm looking for. I have a very particular style I'm looking for; there are several listed on Etsy that I've found that match closely to what I'm looking for.

    Cool. If the sellers have glowing reviews; I wouldn't worry too much. You may be able to tell if you are comfortable with them via the convos.

    I have bought from Etsy - not bags but other items.
    So far so good.

    Hello ladies, I make my own leather purse for the last 15 years. For the first time I decided to sell my products. I had some very successful local art and craft shows recently. I opened my Etsy shop.. unfortunately it's all about marketing... Please check my Etsy shop. For now I have some 100% handmade genuine leather wristlets for sale... And making new items every day...
    Thank you :)
    I think Etsy is awesome, and you can also find high quality stuff that is cheaper than overpriced designer bags :)
    I will post the link in my next post :
