We know we're not the only ones who get frustrated because we can so easily visualize something we're looking for, but just can't find it. Well, Etsy's brought back their Alchemy feature, which may solve some of these frustrations. Buyers can post requests for custom handmade items, and then sellers bid on the opportunity to make the goods. For instance, a New York buyer wants eight simple, small, metal shelves as shown in this diagram.
Today we also saw the following requests: an outdoor rug, a long recipe box, a "household stuff organizer" for warranties and receipts, a painting of a particular building... and the list goes on for 40-odd pages.
The wheels in our heads are already turning around and around with all the possibilities.
Alchemy is here.
