If you are not familiar with Etsy, it is similar to Ebay but items sold on Etsy are handcrafted. It is a great source to find unique, handcrafted items, to get creative ideas, and to try to get started selling items yourself. There are also many ways to search on Etsy - you can search for specific materials, by seller, vintage items only, and you can also search "local" so you can find Etsy vendors in the Birmingham area. If you make a handcrafted item, it is a great and inexpensive way to get started. I think it only costs 20 cents to list an item!
Here are a few interesting Etsy shops you might want to check out:
