Eco Fashion World Magazine DIY issue cover

From Eco Fashion World Magazine, October 2009 issue: Our crush on DIY, crafting, buying handmade and customizing is still going strong. Is it the zeitgeist of the recession or an increasing awareness of where our things come from, hard to say… Last year, the New York Times reported: “On Sept. 29 2008, a day the stock market plunged sharply, Etsy, the leading Web marketplace for handmade goods, had record sales. In November and December, the site has continued to break records. Last month, artists sold $10.8 million of goods on Etsy, up from $4.2 million in November 2007.” NYT December 22nd 2008.

Hear hear. DIY is propably one of the few areas of business that actually benefit from low times. This is one bus you should not miss.
