Etsy Favorites

I try to stay away from Etsy because...Well you know it is ETSY. ( Extra Tempting Stuff 4 You)

But every now and then when I cannot find a gift for a hard to buy for person, I will check out ETSY for ideas.

I thought I would share six of my favorite Sites.  I will let you make the decision if you want to go and take a look at these sites.

1. Mad for Minders    if you are looking for unique needle minders this is the place for you. They make great gifts for your stitching friends as well.

2. Spoon Flower    This site specializes in beautiful fabrics. I was looking for some toile fabric without success until I found this shop on Etsy.

3. Tonya's Sewing Room.   Tonya is one of my floss tube/stitching friends. Right now you are safe from her shop because she is taking a break while she remodels her sewing room. I have purchased some of her cute banners.

4. Song Sparrow Treasures.   This shop belongs to my blog friend, Betsy. She is the mom of triplet sons who are on the spectrum.  She is a real inspiration to me.  Her shop is full of beautiful glass ware and home decor. I ordered a yellow  tiered tray from her that I put out in August.

5. On The Wings Paperie.   Kelli was a friend of mine back in the home forum days. She was the admin over a forum that was popular with homemakers. In fact some of my blog friends were active on Kelli's forum.  Kelli does beautiful paper products for weddings. Her shop is so pretty...be sure and stop by and take a look. It is not too tempting to me as I am not planning any weddings.:)

6. Amber Lynn's Door Decor   If you are looking for a cute door hanging that won't break the bank, this is the shop for you. These are great gifts for the hard to buy for friends. Most everyone loves to make their front door welcoming to visitors.

If you have a favorite shop....comment below so we can all go and gawk!

Oh I love love Etsy , I can spend a long time browsing lol,, I remember when Betsy opened her shop, it was a success from the start, she has such a talent for what she does, thank you for the suggestions! I have been wanting to make a needle keep and I’ve tried many times but my vision is past it now, I will go find one on Etsy!

I love Etsy. I love that I can purchase handmade items. It is the online version of the old craft shows that we went to in the 80's and 90's. I miss those so badly. I have lots of favorite shops. One of mine for natural skincare is Simple Life Mom. I have ordered three different items and loved all of them. Another is preppy paper girl. Laurie has branched out and doing lots of items monogrammed now, but her stationary and notebooks were my first draw to her. She is just a sweetie too. I have ordered everything from stationary to walnut shells to fabric to housewares. I really love it.

Arlene, I am another who loves Etsy. I love buying hand-crafted items and supporting small businesses at the same time. Like Sandy mentioned in her comment, they do remind me of the craft shows that I attended with my Mom in the 80s and 90s. I am going to check out the shops you mentioned.

I don't shop ETSY much but do enjoy browsing. Two of my blogging friends have shops I have purchased from. Judy at Crannberry Morning and her soaps (closed right now because they are moving this summer) and Pam, at Empty Next with her CoasterDoodles shop. Always fun!!

I just got pulled in to Etsy the other night by way of Instagram. I found a site for men's gifts. Can't remember what it was called, but I'll find it again. Such amazing things people make with their creative minds! I love Etsy! Thanks for the tips. I knew about Spoonflower from years ago but didn't realize they were on Etsy now. I'll check out your other recommendations as well.
