What I recommend instead of Pattern
SHOPIFY. Yes, I am obsessed with Shopify and I think it is a great option for the great majority of Etsy sellers who want to have their own site!
Shopify is what I use to run merriweathercouncil.com and what I recommend you consider using as well! It is intuitive and easy to use – if you can use Etsy you can use Shopify. There are loads of ways to customize your shop and add functionality as well.
