Turn your ideas into reality with Alchemy!
Buyers can post requests for custom handmade items, and then sellers bid on the opportunity to make the goods.

Alchemy is a new feature from Etsy that lets buyers place personal request to your shop. If someone sees something from your shop or blog, they might want something like it but in a different color or material. The is a great way to make buyers and seller alike happy.

After 1 1/2 months without one sale in my shop, I was so happy to receive an alchemy request from a lady from another state. I've never seen her before, but here she was trusting me to handmake her ponho-shawl the way she liked it paid in full. In the past I've handmade items for people within my community. Wow! The same thing is available stateside and internationally. I challenge and encourage you to try it out!
