We just did a post about ETSY last week and I came across this story on the Airbnb blog and I had to share. A woman by the name of Suzie had a just launched her new ETSY store called BadAssOldThings. Beverlee was shopping on the site and found some old boots that she fell in love with and saw that Suzie was local and asked if she could stop by to try on the boots. Beverlee purchased the boots and Suzie found herself her first sale and a new girlfriend. The two fell in love and now host on Airbnb.
