Although everyone mainly knows Etsy as an online platform, they are also a network of offline communities. Their “shop local” feature let’s you find products or craftsmen close by.
The problem is that feature is only available on the desktop. Yes, I know that seemed weird and so did Etsy, which is why they have added Etsy Local to their iOS and Android app. Users will now be able to find local items or sellers near them.
The app will also make automatic recommendations for retailers and items near you that you might want to check out. It does this all based on your previous history, things like what shops and items liked when using the site. Also, if you will be traveling soon and want to see local sellers in other locations, just switch to the map to see other areas.
