Etsy Love

Have I mentioned once or twice or eighteen times that I’m a big fan of Etsy?  I love and adore it in a way that is not at all bordering on an obsession or interfering with my productivity in any way.  *Cough, cough.*

If you aren’t familiar with this delightful phenomenon, I’ll fill you in–Etsy is simply “an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade” (that’s from their about page, which also has a good video intro as well).  You can browse by color (this is such a cool application), location (if you want to buy locally), or just randomly.  No matter how you do it, it’s completely addictive (and satisfying, too, to think of buying unique gifts handmade by small business owners.  I’ve already bought three Christmas gifts this way, and I plan to buy more.)

If Etsy has any downfall, it’s that there so much to see you can get blissfully lost, looking for treasures.  Since I know that so many of you are Etsy lovers too (either as shop owners or as shoppers), I thought it would be fun to see which shop(s) you love best.  I’ve put up a Mr. Linky below; please feel free to enter a direct link (or two or three!) to your favorites–including your own, of course, if you have one. 

For the sake of simplicity, I’m limiting this to Etsy shops only, so please don’t enter any other links (they will be deleted).  No need to enter your own name; simply enter the name of the shop, and then enter the direct link to it.  I’ll probably close this down to new links in a day or two, to ward off any spam.

Have fun, and link away!  I can’t wait to browse through your favorites and get a few more Christmas ideas…

    I love your blog! I agree – Etsy is dangerously great shopping! I bent the rules a bit & added 3 Etsy shops to your list: the art of heart (mine – I donate most of my cards to fundraisers or giveaways); then 2 FANTASTIC shops — Beech & Olive (France) and Stonz. I’m posting this everywhere these days since it’s the season of giving: Help rebuild Esteria’s home — http://karenmaehr.blogspot.com/2008/11/house-that-love-will-build.html Thank you!!

  2. Grace in Dubai says:

    I’ve added Paco and Lupe. The fabric is great, designs are beautiful and the bags are even earth friendly (made with natural materials)!
    I just discovered Etsy and got hooked to it immediately!

  3. Cary says:

    I added number 74-Phase Three. If you love aprons, these are the women to visit! They make lovely aprons that are VERY well made. I love the wide waistband (hides a multitude of sins!).

  4. mom2fur says:

    Etsy is not only a great place for handmades, but for the ‘stuff’ you need to make them! It is my first source for buttons, fat quarters and many other goodies! It’s so much nicer to be able to buy one little thing and help support a fellow crafter, than to have to fill a basket at Joanne’s in order to make the shipping reasonable for the purchase.

  5. Jessica says:

    Love Esty, so thank you for doing this post! I just helped my mom get hers together. She’s been sewing for years and has finally decided to get on the Web! Check out her custom purses, bags, specialty totes and home decor!

  6. Karen says:

    Hey Shannon! Thanks for this! I’ve enjoyed shopping around in the links. I noticed, though, that my shop is in there twice. Oops! Sorry about that, I didn’t see that someone had already put it in there.
    And if someone hasn’t pointed it out already– shopping on Etsy is a great way to directly support our economy rather than pouring our money into foreign made goods. It’s especially nice when you can support a local Etsian.

  7. Kits & Caboodles says:

    I’m on Etsy all day long! lol So when I popped over here to catch up on your new posts I got a little confused at first since the first thing my eyes read was the word Etsy! lol
    So glad to hear youre an etsy fan! Have you taken the handmade pledge yet? buyhandmade.org
    Its the final step in admitting your etsy addiction. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Andrea

  8. Julia Freund says:

    Oi, I’m sorry. I misunderstood how the links work and entered my own name. I really wanted to add the name and the link to one of my favorite etsy shops: yaelfran.
    Really sorry about that. Is there any way I can remedy my fault ?

  9. Kori says:

    Thanks so much for doing this!!! I have bag tags that are great stocking stuffers. I also have round labels, address labels and Mommy Calling Cards!!! If you mention Rocks in my Dryer I will add a free bag tag with your order!!!

  10. Abbie says:

    Ooooh–I’m excited about checking out these links. This is a great idea. Sometimes for us new etsy users it’s hard to know where to start looking.

  11. Blessed says:

    I just entered my Mom’s Etsy Store – Baby Duds and More… she’s still trying to get started and figure out what people like to order! She does take custom orders too!

  12. Diana (Ladybug Limited) says:

    Just listed #215– Too Cute. She has the cutest peg dolls and dollhouses ever! (Be sure to check her sold items.)
    And maybe if you do this by this time next year, my shop will make the list ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for this great idea– I think I’m going to have to link it…

  13. Aunt LoLo says:

    Ooh…what a great idea! I have a small “etsy round up” of my friends’ shoppes planned for my blog…but your list DWARFS mine 100 to 1! (I posted LoLo Craft – I make gifts for babies and toddlers.)

  14. Diana (Ladybug Limited) says:

    OK, Shannon, I wasn’t going to self-promote, but after reading through the 214 that were posted before I listed my fave (Too Cute), I was inspired to finally get some inventory in my shop. It’s only 6 items so far, but I’ve got over 150 more hair items waiting on my blog– the holiday bazaar season was a little slow this year!
    Anyways, thanks for the opportunity! I’d love to do a giveaway someday, though I don’t have any big Southern bows ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. teri says:

    Stopped by to check out the list of shops and was thrilled to see Phase Three on the list. Thank you Cary! I see a lot of my other favorites on here as well.

  16. jen TuTu's Bliss says:

    I love that you are spreading some Etsy love. You should create a minietsy!! Just click on your Etsy and at the bottom under PROMOTE click mini-etsy..you will get a visual, clickable code for all your favortite things and it is sooo pretty!! Jen

  17. Karen says:

    I am finding a lot of women have never heard of Etsy. So,thanks for spreading the word about Etsy. I just love browsing at all the wonderful things these talented women and men have made.

  18. Danielle says:

    Oops. I’m sorry my link was added. It was an accident (and I did it twice!)before realizing what I was actually doing. Duh. Please delete it when you get the chance. Thank so much!
