We really liked the Groupon concept, but being an Etsy seller myself I knew Groupon was too big for me so we decided to start Crafty Attic for the small business owner. I still use Groupon for those big purchases and enjoy the deals.

Crafty Attic is a new daily site for people who love handmade gifts. The website hosts work from Etsy and Artfire and other independent businesses to provide customers with unique and extraordinary items available at discounted prices.
Customers have to act fast because the deals only last for a limited time. At the top of the page, there is a counter which tells customers how much time is left to purchase an item. Crafty Attic also offers the option to purchase deals at a VIP discounted price. VIP members have priority by being able to purchase deals before popular items sell out. Customers get 15-30% more value on vouchers be becoming a VIP member. For example, a regular voucher could be spend $14 for a $27 amount of merchandise. For a VIP member, this same voucher would offer a deeper discount and the voucher would be $14 for $37.
A new Featured Item shoppe section at Crafty Attic will be unveiled at the end of October. In this section, one shoppe will offer the best artisans of Crafty Attic with VIP discounts of over 50% off. The second shoppe will offer craft supplies with VIP discounts of over 40% off.
