Etsy Shopping Made Easy

If you prefer to buy from small business this holiday season, this list of Etsy shopping ideas will help you find unique one of a kind gift ideas.

Ready for some more holiday shopping ideas? This time I have Etsy on my mind.

I have a special place in my heart for Etsy shops. My sister, who passed away a few years ago, loved Etsy from day 1. Before 99.9% of the people out there even knew what Etsy was.

She liked the idea of it being primarily women, working from home, making a living doing what they loved. Sort of like blogging is for me, Etsy was for her.

So today I am doing a shopping guide of all the really cool stuff you can find on Etsy, so get your Santa mug filled up and let the shopping begin!

Winged World makes the ultimate upcycle here. She takes old library card catalog cards and hand paints scenes on them.

Wait for it . . . with a theme from the book!!!

And speaking of old things not used very much anymore books, one of my best blogging friends in the whole state of Wisconsin, Nana Diana, has a book out called The Mystery Of Lucy And The Dark Woods.

What I love about this book is that no one in her family, not even her husband, knew she was writing a book until she had the Proof Copy in her hand from the publishing house.

Talk about being able to keep a secret!

You knew I wouldn’t be able to make it through a post with a Thermos making an appearance – Oh, Little Rabbit has the most adorable reusable cotton lunch bags.

Some other etsy shops that you might fall in love with are:

MonkeyBox Vintage Junk “She loves all things vintage and sometimes buys too much”. Enough said. She’s kindred people.

E Is For Ethel Lots of vintage goodies that turn over quickly, so if you see something you want, snatch it up fast.

Knick Of Time Angie has anything from farmhouse decor to handmade items to digital downloads to stencils.

A Twist Of Thread – Diana is from Wisconsin and makes the prettiest scarfs and baby blankets.

Nicolyndime – Nicolyn sells her wares at Nicolyndime. Get it? Nickel and dime! Love that name! She has a mixture of vintage items and some very cute Prize Puffs – think pinata for small hands, but loaded with all sorts of vintage inspired toys.

Something Bleue – Bonnie makes some really cute strawberry shaped pin cushions and also sells unique accessories for weddings.

    I’m so totally geeking out to get featured in your blog post! Seriously, I’m doing my happy dance! Thank you so much for helping out us little folk!

    Thanks for stopping by. I haven’t done much posting due to work, school, kids and life. I am excited for Christmas this, as I am every year. I got the phone call I was hoping for, “do you want to come to your dad’s house for Thanksgiving?” That means I can start putting up the Christmas trees. I have a stash of vintage ornaments that have been in my closet since August that I can’t wait to get out. Forget about presents, just let me decorate. Love the ideas, I do wish I could find a cute phone cover, wonderful thing about the internet, you can find just about anything. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
