Use Etsy to Find Unique Handmade Accessories for Your Mobile Device

Etsy is sort of like the Amazon of hand-made goods. But we’re not talking about the sweater your grandma knits you every winter to make sure that you don’t catch a cold… Etsy actually has some really neat hand-made accessories for electronics. In addition to being unique and hand-crafted, accessories from Etsy are usually priced very competitively.

Let’s say, for example, you just picked up a new Galaxy Tab or iPad 2. You could go the official route and head to Samsung.com or Apple.com and check out accessories for the tablet. You’ll be looking at mass produced cases for $30-$50 for the Galaxy Tab, or $40-$70 for an iPad 2 Smart Cover.

Jump over to to Etsy and type “Galaxy Tab” or “iPad 2” [links go to search terms on Etsy] in the search box and you’ll find stands, sleeves, folios, and more — many of which can be customized to your particular tastes. At the moment, I can see cases for as cheap as $12! Not only are the prices usually quite fair, but you’ll also be getting something unique that few others are likely to have.

Etsy also has plenty of ereader cases, so if you’re rocking a Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader etc, go have a look [links go to search terms on Etsy]!
