I will be honest, since it is a different animal than Etsy or Supermarket (Big Cartel gives artists the ability to set up their own stores that usually links off their independent website), I am not really fond of their browsing options. When browsing, you see a store banner rather than actual shop items, so hopping in and out of shops can be cumbersome.
But, worth it. There are some really talented artists and clothing designers using Big Cartel and it is possible to stumble across a new,exciting discovery.
I did a little bit of poking last night and found some things I really liked. Here are 14 of my favorites.
Do you have a favorite Big Cartel store? I would love to hear about it in the comments.
