Online shopping has become a quick convenient form of shopping for many students.
Not to mention, always searching for the best budget friendly deals. We are all aware that college comes with a flashy price tag.

Etsy.com is a website and app that focuses on a wide range of handmade or vintage items. This site provides items such as jewelry, beauty products, clothing, art, home décor and much more.
School can be seen as a runway for many students. Maybe not everyday, but on those days students feel like dressing to impress. No student wants to walk on campus and see another student wearing the same outfit as theirs.

One of many nifty features about this site is that individuals have the opportunity to grow in entrepreneurship. There are thousands of independent designers selling their creations.
Treasury is another neat feature about Etsy, which is a shopping gallery conceded of lists of items. Members can create theme lists of their favorite items on this site.
Each list may contain 16 items; whatever list gets the most views gets to be featured on Etsy’s homepage. The featured treasures are chosen based on current themes and trends that change throughout the day.
Shopping is made easy with the Etsy smart search engine. Allowing buyers to type in the product name, choose a category or view the positive feedback on the product before purchasing.
