Tired Of Getting Lost Shopping for Jewelry at Etsy.com? Try Needle's Haystack!
NeedlesHaystack.com is a new venue for buying and selling handmade jewelry online. They are dedicated entirely to jewelry and choose only the finest artisans, and specifically those located within the United States.
There are several ways Needle's Haystack sets itself apart from larger sites like Etsy. Their first concern is of the shopping experience of the customer. Large photos and an uncluttered user interface make for a more calming, relaxed interaction, and you have plenty of options without feeling entirely overwhelmed by millions of tiny thumbnails to browse through every time you search for 'gemstone earrings'.
A simple combined checkout process is an extra added bonus when buying from several designers in a single transaction. That's right, unlike Etsy, at Needle's Haystack you can buy from several different artists at once and not have to go through the entire checkout process for every single purchase! That's a breath of fresh air, especially around the holidays when we may try to consolidate our shopping and make it less frantic to be able to give all friends and family special, unique gifts.
Needle's Haystack Offers Gift Cards
Another wonderful way that Needle's Haystack goes out of its way to enhance the shopper's experience is by offering Gift Cards, which is something that Etsy does not do. (Individual shop owners may offer them, but then choosing a shop on Etsy can be just as overwhelming as finding a single item!)
Buying a Gift Card from Needle's Haystack just makes it that much easier to assure that the special person you're buying for will get exactly what she wants, and you don't have to narrow it down to one artisan for them. And don't forget, since all transactions are combined into a simple checkout, the recipient of your Needle's Haystack Gift Card is able to choose items from several different talented jewelry artisans!
She might choose this fabulous amethyst sterling silver wire-wrapped ring by Bespangled Jewelry (top right photo), a gloriously rich handforged sterling silver and labradorite cuff (middle right photo) and matching earrings (photo above) by Cottage Originals, and this spectacularly textured amethyst cabochon necklace handmade from recycled sterling silver by Eye Candy by Amy (bottom right photo). There's no limit to the possibilities!
