A few weeks ago we were looking for new keychains for some office keys. Rather than heading out to a super center, we went online to browse for something a bit more creative. At no surprise, we ended up on Etsy and found the awesome wine cork keychains pictured above.
For those unfamiliar, Etsy is a website where people can sell their creative / vintage pieces. With no shortage of products, it would be easy to find unique items for all the rooms in your home.
Custom websites like the one we created for Lucky Girl Gifts and shops like Etsy stores are (generally) run by everyday people who have a really cool product to sell that is either completely unique, or something that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
The internet has changed business so much. Without it, we would probably have some generic keychain on the other end of our office keys. The ‘buy local’ movement is certainly great - in that we support locally owned and operated businesses. With the internet, it is almost as if someone in the middle of the country is local to us now.
