Folksy, the UK's Etsy, is just getting ready to launch.

David Tennant is playing Hamlet? I had no idea. The various portrayals (male, female, skinny, round, young, old) are remembered.

Oh!! Yard sale!! I don't really need any stuff, in fact I'm more inclined to get rid of stuff, but I am curious as to what you people would set out... Let me know where to go when!
