Etsy shop owners and handcrafters have seen a huge opportunity during the COVID-19 pandemic and are creating thousands of homemade non-medical cloth face masks. According to Market Place Plus, Etsy’s sales are up 98 percent year-over-year.
SunnySlope Design, an Etsy shop owned by Jennifer Golubiewski has sold about 400 masks to date, specializing in gender neutral and music focused prints. Jennifer, an artist, put down her paint brushes and pivoted to making face masks after a “call to makers” came out from Etsy management. Jennifer crafts masks from a wide array of funky fabrics, including this “hot” pepper-themed option.
