Etsy.com is a great site (clearly we love it, since we mention it all the time!), but one of the aspects of the site that needs a bit of work is the search function. Hint: use "NOT" to filter out supplies, patterns, etc. that you're not looking for. It will definitely streamline your search.
Some other Etsy sellers have put together an online directory of Etsy shops that allows you to search by category, alphabetically, and also has a few reviews of shops. Some of these functions are replicates of features found in Etsy itself, but are a bit more streamlined right now.
