2 ways to find Etsy coupon codes, and a cute vintage brass cat


I love online shopping in general -- and regular retail shopping too, of course. But I get most excited when I shop on Etsy. I love supporting small, creative businesses! And I love the thrill of the hunt, whether for unique vintage items, or for new items (like pillows) that are made by hand (and are often better-quality and cheaper than you could find at a regular retailer).

Who couldn't love this cute little vintage cat made of brass? Only mean, horrible people who hate animals. Okay, I might be exaggerating. But I do find him quite adorable.


This evening I was checking my nightly One Kings Lane flash sale email, and came across a collection of vintage dog and cat figurines. I had to check it out, since I'm a crazy cat lady. Several brass kitties caught my eye, and I even put a pair in my shopping cart. But then wondered what I could find on Etsy that might be similar (and cheaper!). That's like going down a rabbit hole, right? I was just innocently checking my emails, then I opened the OKL email, then I checked out the vintage cat figurines offered from OKL, then I did an Etsy search for them. I did find several items on Etsy similar to what I had in my OKL cart, but I came across the cute little brass kitty above and decided he would be the cat I take home this time. I mean, I already have four live furry feline rescues at my house, why not add a brass one?

Okay, now to the good stuff for you. Have you ever noticed the coupon code field at the Etsy checkout? Do you ever use it?

Here are two ways to locate Etsy coupon codes:
  1. Do an internet search for the Etsy seller, and look for blogs or other websites where a special deal was offered. For instance, a blogger might write about some pillows she purchased from an Etsy vendor, and she might have worked out a special offer that the vendor will give 10% off to readers.
  2. Go to EtsyCouponCode.com, a new site I just discovered tonight. It's similar to RetailMeNot.com, (which compiles coupon codes for "regular" retailers). You can search by category (art, furniture, music, weddings, etc.) or you can search for a particular Etsy vendor. Cha-ching!
Tonight I saved 10% on my cat figurine, and recently I purchased another vintage letter R from an Etsy vendor recently and used a 15% off code. More savings means more money to buy more stuff! (Or, as The Mr. would see it, more savings means more money in the bank, and stop shopping right now. He's no fun. Except that his financial oversight allows us to pay our bills each month. So I guess it's good I keep him around to counterbalance my spending habits.)

Have you ever looked for coupon codes before checking out on Etsy? What was your best score (savings-wise, or just your favorite purchase)? If you have any other tips, please share in the comments!
