I’m a big proponent of handmade and supporting small business. This why I share with you the “trending” categories on Etsy.
Etsy is an international online marketplace where artists from around the world build their virtual shops and post their goods for sale. If you have internet, a computer or mobile device and some money to spend, you are in luck! You can find virtually anything here including home furnishings/accessories, clothing, jewellery, art, collectibles, vintage and one of kind items. If you are looking to have something unique made with personal customization, this would also be a good place to start your search. Etsy is not a place for mass produced or factory made in the sense of larger corporations. It’s smaller and more personal. Most often, you will converse with the actual artist/maker.
Why not try your first browse on Etsy by looking at the Editor’s Picks
They break shopping into some specific categories such as “Valentines Gifts for Her”, “Valentines Gifts for Kids”, “Valentine’s Day Decor”…..did I mention yet that Valentines Day is coming soon;) ?
Shopping for her – you may find something unique such as this heart shaped hair pin by Kapelika- product listing here
