Etsy.com A colorful new way to shop. For those of you who don't know what you want, but know exactly what color you want it in.

Arg, first post and I don't enter it properly, even after checking it twice. *hangs head in shame*

Or if you know exactly what color you want the background of the photo to be.

I was very impressed by the interface, and interested to see that Jared Tarbell (of Complexification) was responsible.

Also, they say they're working on the background-color problem.

I don't get it. Why do the items come up stacked when I click a color? I guess it's neat how you can unstack them, but it's sillly that I need to.

Etsy is great, but I didn't know they had this fun new toy. Thanks!

Nice idea, but disconcerting in practice.

Yeah, the stacking is weird. The way the pictures pivot when you drag them is also weird. I'm mostly excited about the contextual zooming; I feel like the whole color-space is available all the time, and the way that it zooms in and out within that space is mostly fluid and intuitive for me.

Ooo! Yellow zombie sockmonkey to match my sheets. Too bad I'm totally dizzy now.

I clicked the eggplant colour (dark reddish purple) and got a bag and purse both with LOTS of different colours. Meh.

This game is pretty neat! A little hard to get the gameplay, but when you do it's fun. I think I found the secret level and killed the boss - hint: his hand-knitted PDA case with the skull and FSM hat both have weaker armor than the rest of him. Concentrate your missiles there and you're golden.

So I can buy a cat for $20?

The only store I've ever seen where they actually encourage you to throw the merchandise around. No more jail time for me!
