Etsy Shopping Guide For The Home

Etsy shopping guide for the home

It's no secret around here that I'm extremely passionate about shopping small, local and handmade.  Since opening my shop in 2011, Etsy has been a part of my daily life and I wouldn't have it any other way!  So, what better way to support other small business owners than to share some of my personal favorite shops?  I truly hope that this post will bring you some home decor inspiration and give you a really great excuse to support a small business owner.  Happy shopping!  

Elizabeth Benotti Handmade Ceramics  //  I've been eyeing these pretty and functional things for over a year, and I think I might just have to take the leap and buy one already!  I love how bright and detailed each of these pieces are!  I can guarantee no one else will have anything like it.  Well, unless they have awesome taste and also happen to buy items from this shop.  

MB Art Studios  //  Good vibes only, forever.  Anything that has this statement on it, or any other sweet note, officially has my heart.  You can find hand crafted clocks and ring dishes that are simple and certain to make a lasting impression on anyone who sees them in this shop.

 Sassy Stitches by Lori  //  Oh, how I wish I could sew or do anything with textiles.  These items actually really remind me of some of my prints that I've designed, but in hand sewn pillow form.  Lori, if you ever want to collaborate, let me know!  These pillows are the perfect way to add a little bit of personality into a neutral space without drawing too much attention.  I'll take one of each, please!    

Scrappy Madison  //  Pallets, woodwork and Kentucky.  What else could a Louisville girl ask for?  I don't really know what to say about the work found in this shop other than the fact that it's beautifully understated.  Location pride really not your thing?  Head over to see Jessica from Bourbon City Goods for more beautiful pallet work! 

Texturable Decor  //  If I could have all of the blankets in the world I would be a very happy girl.  We keep our house pretty cold (and by we I mean I since Sean totes around a space heater) so I always have a blanket on me while I'm working.  I tend to lean towards the ones from Target that are pretty useless after a year or two, so I would love to explore the world of handmade and test them out.  Don't these just look so comfortable?
