I know, I know. Black Friday used to be a day. And then Cyber Monday came along. Now the two have stretched themselves into a mini shopping season. Not to let the big box stores have all the fun (and dollars), Etsy announced its own Cyber Week — perfect for people who prefer to give their money to the little guy (and gal). There are plenty of sellers participating and offering at least 10% off their usual prices (some much more).
Below are a few of our favorite items on sale, but be sure to explore all the sellers participating in Etsy's Cyber Week event here.
