Etsy — a popular site which allows folks to buy and sell handmade and vintage items — finally has its own iPhone app. It's free, well-organized, and will come in handy as the holiday shopping season edges closer.

The app can be downloaded for free through the Apple App Store and it's got plenty of features for both buyers and sellers.

Buyers are able to search through items, browse through lists, and even complete purchases directly from their iPhones. Those interested in selling something will be happy to know they can use the app to access their listings, view orders, and even manage their store fronts.

The release of this app may feel quite overdue, but the wait was certainly worth it. It's nicely designed, stable, and a pleasure to use.

Existing Etsy users will probably adore the app and those new to the world of handcrafted and vintage items will quickly get sucked into a wallet-draining wonderland.
