My favorite online p2p marketplace--Etsy

Happy #Etsyday!!

Today the online marketplace for all things handmade is celebrating a special day for sellers to unite for "guerrilla marketing". So far, it's a success: #1 hashtag on Twitter according to Twazzup.

This event also reminded me to check out Etsy's recently relased March statistics. The numbers prove it; Etsy is an incredibly vibrant marketplace:

In March 2009:

  • $12 million in goods sold (up 18% from Februrary)
  • 788,235 items sold
  • 157,000 new members
  • 502,705,157 page views
