My Favourite Etsy Stores

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Etsy site, (have you been living under a rock?) it is a marketplace where people all around the world connect to buy and sell handmade and vintage goods. Etsy offers a meaningful and personal shopping experience to consumers and gives independent, creative businesses around the world the tools to be successful. 

Basically you can find plenty of one-off, one-of-a-kind items that have been hand crafted with love. Sounds pretty good right? I can sometimes find myself browsing the Etsy website on an almost weekly basis and I generally tend to gravitate towards Harry Potter memorabilia. What a shocker, right? 


I've compiled a list of some of my favourite online Etsy stores and a small blurb from their 'About Me' pages. There is an Etsy store for pretty much everything you can think of and products can range from everything to decals, hand-crafted leather accessories and even unique prints to decorate your home or office. Here are some of my top picks.



"The Original Marble MacBook Decal. Made with ♥ in the USA. Ships Worldwide."


"Maeve & Marigold offers a range of unique prints suitable for your home, dorm, study, or classroom. Available as instant digital downloads for utmost convenience and affordability; they make a perfect, thoughtful gift for birthdays, housewarmings, baby showers, Mother's Day, and many other special occasions- or as a treat for yourself! Designed with love in Tasmania, Australia."


"Handcrafted and Hand Stitched to order, you will find only the most beautiful, premium, functional, and slim leather wallets and accessories that are Designed by Fraser."


"Beautiful, unique handcrafted jewellery and cufflinks. The perfect keepsake gift for someone you love."


Make sure to check them out, especially if you're looking for unique gifts for friends and family. I think browsing Etsy would be a great start to finding the perfect stocking stuffers for your loved ones this Christmas. Regardless whether you end up purchasing anything, it's definitely worth a browse if only to check out the talent of these fabulous independent online stores.

I've had my eye on this marble decal* from the Marble MacBook Decal shop for absolutely ages and so excited that I could finally go ahead and purchase it. I'm absolutely in love with it and I'm super impressed with the quality of it too! Marble seems to be the 'in' trend right now and I love using this as a background for some of my blog photos and it also doesn't hurt that it's pretty to look at.

I love the idea of supporting local and independent businesses and I think the concept of the Etsy website is a fantastic way to go about it. What about you, have you ever purchased from an Etsy store before?

  2. I think I've checked Etsy sites only a couple of times, main reason I don't like it is the price can be pretty outrages. I do agree that it's the perfect place to surf for unique gifts and I might see what I can find for my Christmas shopping.

    1. I'll admit, I have found some gorgeous things on Etsy only to look at the price and my eyes boggle out of my head! Sometimes I think it's worth it for that one-of-a-kind gift!
