Cool things that I found from my Etsy Taste Test

Favors & Gifts, Wedding Style & Decor

A few weeks ago Etsy launched an application that helps you narrow down their often-overwhelming marketplace to various types of items—all that are your specific style. The function works like a quiz and takes you through several pages of real Etsy items asking you to choose which one you like best. Based on your selections you are given a page of a seemingly endless number of products that should match your taste. Of course not all of them are winners, but I was able to find some cool stuff that I may not have otherwise come across on my own. And even if it didn't like the exact product, I found some cool sellers who had other items that I liked. Ergo, it was a success. See below: —Cari Wolfert

And since Allison was the one who introduced me to this ultra-addictive tool, and because she has equally-discriminating but completely different taste than me, here are some finds from her taste test:
