We are suckers for value. Value and price are often related, but a value is when something gives a lot and costs as little as possible. That often means inexpensive, but never cheap. Cheap is never good… and good value isn’t always cheap.
We also love Etsy because we like supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses.
