As a frequent browser and sometimes buyer of flash sale and deal sites like ideeli and Groupon, I was thrilled to find a similar site that's closer to my heart. I love buying handmade. It supports individual artists and creatives and makes for such unique gift giving. A deal site called Heartsy launched earlier this year, giving small-scale vendors and artisans a chance to give out big one-time offers on their handmade and vintage shops. It's like a Groupon for Etsy. The part I really like? I get to have a say in what deals get offered! Heartsy has a "Pick Deals" tab, which lets you click through a gallery of shops and select how strongly you feel about buying their products. If enough folks show interest, they'll offer a deal from that vendor. Happy shopping!
