Crafts from

The Martha Stewart Show, February 2008

Twenty-seven-year-old Rob Kalin took a leap of faith in 2005 when he founded the website, a Brooklyn-based online marketplace for all things handmade. In just three years, he has seen some remarkable results from his hard work and dedication: Since Etsy's launch, it has gained more than 750,000 members and currently has about 100,000 sellers from around the world that have opened up Etsy shops. On a given day, 15,000 items are sold and 20,000 new items are listed. Today, Rob stops by the studio with a sampling of some of Etsy's best-selling items.
