This Mother’s Day, we’re making it easy for you to give your mom something unique and support local businesses at the same time.
Etsy.com has been featuring shops from independent sellers since 2005, and has quickly become the standard for handmade and vintage shopping. Think of it as eBay’s prettier, smarter, more straightforward cousin. One of the site’s crowning gems is its Shop Local tool, which allows you to zero in on shops in Richmond and keep all that cash in your own backyard. This Mother’s Day, we’re making it easy for you to give your mom something unique and support local businesses at the same time.
