I’m a big fan of Etsy and always have been. Etsy has a focus on hand made and vintage, and I love using it for one of a kind gifts or a special piece for my home. I love supporting smaller businesses too, so I’ll often search there first when looking for a product. Here are four of my favorite Etsy shops:
- Humbling Heights is definitely one of my favorite Etsy shops. She has the CUTEST baby girl bows and some other handmade pieces. A portion of each sale goes towards supporting foster care and adoption, and the woman who owns this shop is an incredible foster parent herself who just adopted her adorable little girl. I love that these items are stylish, well-made, and help support adoption! Shown above is the white eyelet bow that Virginia wore our entire Marco Island vacation.
2. Diament Designs – I’ve bought from this shop a total of four times and have been so happy each time. Basically, they have tons of cool jewelry and my favorite pieces they have are old stock from the 1960’s of signet rings and vintage name jewelry. If you have an old fashion name from that era or even before (Robin is a total 1950’s/60’s name), or know someone who does, you may have some luck. I bought this bracelet that says “Virginia” on it a few years before Virginia was born because I had always hoped to have a little girl named that. I also bought my friend’s daughter Ruth the same one with her name. The signet ring I wear is from this shop and looks incredible. I had bought a signet ring from Sarah Chloe and it tarnished! My ring from this shop did not because it was made in the 1960’s and was probably well plated/protected.
3. Royal Stencils is a shop I used quite a bit when we first bought our home. I love the look of wallpaper, but it can be pricey and also hard to get on and off. Stenciling is an afforable and stylish option, and I bought two stencils from this etsy shop. I have a small guest bathroom (shown above) in my home and the bee stencil takes the style up a notch! I am always getting compliments on it.
4. Curtains Etc. is a shop I’ve used twice in my home – both my nursery and master bedroom. It’s SO HARD to find attractive valances these days, but I don’t want to do a full curtain in these rooms and I also don’t want them to be bare. I love an elegant valance because it looks upscale to me, but I could not find a nice looking valance anywhere. This etsy shop did an excellent job delivering exactly the look I was looking for. I did a monogram in Virginia’s room and a plain one in my room with navy trim. I’m so happy with both of them!
I love finding new Etsy shops! Please comment below if you have any Etsy shops I should check out. 🙂
