I've found that connecting with local Etsy sellers is very beneficial. Most people that appreciate handmade, really like to shop local, too. Chances are you have something that they want, and you can arrange a delivery or pick up. Nice chance to meet your customers. Also, if you do shows in the area, they are very likely to attend! This is a good way to connect with your local Etsy sellers, too. Chicago Style Crafters is our Etsy street team and we have regular meet ups, virtual and physical. We share information, critique each others shops, put together promo bags to hand out at shows, etc. I've learned a lot from the team!
