I remember when I first heard about Etsy from a Ph.D student I was working with in the research lab during my undergraduate work. Since then, I can often be found hunting for hidden treasures on the website and some of my most favorite purchases have been found there. I must say, chickadees, there is something snazzy about finding a good quality product made by a small business. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to know that my purchases for either myself or my dearest friends and fam-bam were made with love. In starting this new series, I thought that I would kick off a few shops that I have ordered from multiple times and could not be more pleased with their products and customer service!
[saracarr]: Not gonna lie, this shop gives me instant baby fever! Oh hey, you love Bob the bear and his happy hued yellow glasses? It's gonna cost you a baby! Maybe some day but for now I will just happily purchase them for my mommy friends. In case you were curious, pals, this shop is probably my most favorite on Etsy!
[littlelow]: This shop has some of my favorite cards! Whenever I am in need of a fix for the perfect card, I know that I can always count on this shop to pull through. I love the cheeky yet vintage feel to this shop! I may or may not be tempted to keep some of these cards and to display on my desk at work! Can you blame a gal?
[ScoutandLilly]: Scout & Lilly is a small shop that carries modern accessories. I am smitten with their small leather goods and whimsy banners. I think they would be adorable in my speech room! So much better than those inspirational Garfield posters my teachers hung up in my classrooms when I was growing up! Wouldn't you agree? Yikes!
[notTuesday]: They have the most darling necklaces and fab color combos. They especially pair well with a striped t-shirt for all of you gal pals who are smitten with stripes, like me!
So what are some of your favorite Etsy shops? Are there any that you just cannot live without? I cannot wait to share more of my favorites soon! Stay tuned, chickadees!
