    I often buy from Etsy and Amazon. I love to browse fabric.com. I check out current prices at ebay and google if I am looking for something specific. I also belong to some on-line doll groups and look for hand made doll clothing from sellers that post their links on them.

    I typically shop Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Etsy, and Ebay online. I like browsing Hobby Lobby and Jo-Anns websites, but then I usually go to the store to make purchases.

    I generally use Google, eBay, Overstock, Amazon and etsy to comparison shop and then actually buy from reliable sources with positive reviews online.

    I love to shop on Etsy! My goal is to support the independent small business owners first (on-line as well as local- which is easy to do here in Portland Oregon) and to avoid big box retailers.

    I mainly buy from trusted websites like Amazon, ThinkGeek, Walmart, and Target. I’ll use Google Shopping if I’m looking for something unique.

    Before I moved out of my parents’ home, I didn’t do any online shopping, ever. I’d go with Mum to the nearest Spotlight store. After I started going to university and moved on my own to ‘the big city’ I learned a whole lot about online shopping, but for patterns I haven’t been very pressed to go much further than Burdastyle, it’s got everything! I still go to spotlight for materials – old habits die hard.

    Lots of places…it depends what I am shopping for…fabric, sewing supplies, toys, cloth diapers. Lately some daily deal sites like Baby Half Off, Zulily, and Hippobargains.

    I may be the odd one out here, but aside from anything that can be found at Chapters.indigo.ca, my guilty online pleasure is Threadless.com for statement t-shirts. Certain individuals in my acquaintance know to expect a t-shirt in their gifts and I have at least 9 just in my own collection. And I am supposed to be phasing them out of the wardrobe!

    I try to do most of my shopping locally, but it’s not easy in my small town. I usually end up resorting to Amazon for books, Etsy and Fabic.com for Fabric and crafts, and Ebay for everything else.

    Believe it…or not….I find so many nice fabrics on ebay. I can almost always find good quality fabrics at a great price on ebay. I usually look for an ebay store that will combine shipping and buy several things at the same time to save shipping costs.
