Etsy is the online bazaar for handmade fashion, toys and home furnishings. This crafts-only marketplace is every family's one-stop shop for decorating the home, clothing the kids and buying grownups' toys. Desperate for that killer gift for those got-everything-already relatives? Go for the Star Trek wine glasses. Searching for artwork for your vehicle-obsessed toddler's bedroom? Check out the fire truck, police car and ambulance prints at the pickledpumpkins shop. There's often only one of each item in stock at a time, so the pieces can sell out quickly. If this happens, e-mail the artist and that person can arrange to make you another one or help you pick out something even better.
