If you know me, you know that I love sites like Pure Citizen, Blissmo and Groupon that allow me to get great deals on eco-friendly products. Well, like those sites, Heartsy offers big savings on a variety of products. But Heartsy is doing something that I haven’t seen anywhere else: They focus solely on handmade products, most of which come from sellers on Etsy.
Like other flash sale sites, Heartsy’s offers are live for a limited time â€” or more specifically, until they sell a pre-determined number of deals. You might pay $10 for a $20 voucher to a specific Esty shop, and sometimes the deals are even better than 50% off. Heartsy also has another program I haven’t seen elsewhere â€” VIP perks. If you become a paid VIP member for $7.99/ month, you get access to the deals before everyone else. In some cases, VIPs also get a larger voucher for the same price. So when everyone else might get a $50 for $25, a VIP might get $65 instead. Obviously, the VIP program is worth it only if you plan to use Heartsy a lot.
If you’ve heard of Etsy, you’ve probably spent hours upon hours going through shops full of products handmade with love by people just like you and I â€” often at the their kitchen tables or in their basements or garages. I’m sorry, but mass-produced goods just can’t compare â€” despite their convenience.
It was on Etsy that I discovered my favorite soaps among all my favorites, Nostalgia Organics. It was there that I found a beautiful toy box handmade by a mom who was kind enough to donate it when we redesigned my daughter’s room. Suffice it to say, I’ve discovered too many shops to count. Now I just have to wait patiently for those shops to show up on Heartsy so I can grab a great deal!
