I'm being trusted to take over another Instagram account, excuse me while I cackle and go mad with power!
If you're a fan of the nerdy or unusual, and also of small creative businesses, you need to follow @AltEtsy on Instagram to get a fix of Etsy’s best alternative finds. Thanks to AltEtsy I've found some great makers after their work has popped up in my feed!
Raven skull jewellery, feminist clothing, with swearing, insects and nerd culture in-between, AltEtsy is carefully curated by Francesca Burke. She shares her pick of unconventional etsy items posted to Instagram using the #altetsy tag, and it's wonderfully colourful for an ‘alternative’ account.
If you dig into Fancesca a little more through her links at francescaburke.com you'll get a feel that her tastes are truly represented by AltEtsy, she's a literate lady with a strong sense of snark!
Francesca put a shout out for a guest curator, and I stuck my hand up, eager to help someone who feeds me tasty etsy finds, and also excited to share some makers I like.
Or you could help a gal out, and suggest your own alternative etsy items!
Have a look at AltEtsy, see if you find it your kind of wonderful, and ponder if you have something which would be bang on for the AltEtsy fans. Follow AltEtsy, tag your image on Instagram with #altetsy, and you may get a share from Francesca now, or make it into my hit list for the end of summer!
Give AltEtsy a follow, and I'll see you there in just under a month or so!
