Amazon Toys With Idea of Etsy Rival
Goliath has swiped David’s slingshot. The online shopping giant may soon stitch up its crafty rival’s supply. Etsy sellers are reportedly receiving emails asking them about interest in a potential “Handmade at Amazon” feature that would presumably let artisans sell their wares in an even bigger marketplace. Reeling from a first-quarter net loss of $36.6 million, which sent stocks south — and struggling to maintain its handcrafted vibe amid an influx of mass-produced flotsam — Etsy may see disenchanted sellers aim for a change.
