ETSY is the site for all things handmade. It rocks! I sell items on there but I also buy items on there! ETSY is the perfect stop for a custom love bird cake topper, a vintage-looking fascinator for your hair, custom Chicago table numbers or a monogrammed aisle runner. Once you are baby bound, they have cute stuffed animals, knitted hats and a million other delightful handmade items. If you are planning a party–they have a bunch of great things for that too! From cupcake flags to custom banners–they literally have it all!
Last Christmas season, I bought some pendants from an artist that turns Scrabble pieces into jewelry! They were a huge hit with my family members. I am sure I will be buying some other gifts off of ETSY this season too. And I love that by buying goods off ETSY I am supporting other independent artists and craftsmen too!
