21 products from Amazon that you had no idea they sold
Amazon is a huge marketplace. And like any huge marketplace, there are going to be items for sale that you had no idea were available.
For example, did you know you could get IKEA furniture from Amazon (even if it's not directly sold from them)? Sounds like a dream: Not having to wander around that huge warehouse. Also, several designers -- like Levi's and Kate Spade -- have their own stores on the site. Finally, Amazon has even launched its own Etsy competitor, called Amazon Handmade, where shoppers can get unique products from makers.
Either way, we've collected 21 products that should surprise you that they're available on Amazon -- all Prime-eligible with free, two-day shipping. We ordered them by cost (from lowest to highest) and stand by the quality of the items.
