I came across a comment from a reader on a friend’s instagram feed in which she asked what said friend would buy on Etsy if she had a gift card. That got me thinking about what I would buy on Etsy so naturally I started to browse.

Nearly everything that caught my eye was home related. Justin and I just moved up the street so I’ve got home decor on the brain.

I was a shop owner with my sister for a few years and we sold on Etsy. Since then she’s running the jewelry biz entirely and has taken it to new heights!

Anyway, I’ve loved Etsy for a long, long time and am always happy to support small businesses that produce really interesting and unique items.

Have you bought on Etsy before? I’ve purchased a lot of stationary and paper goods, as well as jewelry, but not as many home items. But those cat placemats are calling my name! How cute would that be to set the cats food on?


*either this shop closed or something happened because I cannot access it any longer. Sorry about that!

I’m obsessed with Etsy. I’ve bought stuff for my house with it and lately I’ve been binging on planner accessories since I just got the new Erin Condren planner. I love the creativity of Etsy sellers and I love that it’s usually pretty affordable.

I buy a lot of my jewelry from etsy but recently also bought a bridal shower gift for a good friend as well (personalized mugs).

Currently my obsession is looking for a laptop case for my new computer.

I LOVE ETSY! I actually told my sister to just get me a gift certificate for there as my Christmas present, after we set a limit. I knew it would get used, and was immediately! I mainly buy jewelry (which has included your sister and moms shops!), but also love scarves, custom prints/wood signs, and some home goods. My Favorites List is SO long, ha. I actually bought a lot of wedding stuff from various shops – cards for various individuals, bridesmaid earrings and necklaces, gifts for my mom, mother in law, and host couple (hubby’s aunt), and my cake topper! Such great stuff, and I too, love supporting the people who actually make these things.

I LOVE ETSY! I’ve bought the cutest little “Buddy the Elf” (From the movie Elf) for my cat Hank – tried to get a Jovie hat for my other cat, but the shop had closed between getting the first one and getting the second cat. I’ve also recently purchased some headbands that I LOVE! I always peruse Etsy looking for stuff, but I rarely pull the trigger. But going to have to more because I do love the stuff on there!

I nearly always forget to shop on Etsy. I have purchased jewelry there before, and several years ago I purchased a lot of wedding decor from Etsy. I also purchased my blog’s media kit template from Etsy. There’s so much you can shop for and find on there, and I love to support small business owners. I’m going to head over there now!

I LOVE Etsy! I have a shop, so I’m a tad biased…but honestly, the community and the opportunity it has given me is amazing! It allows me to put my creative self out there without much risk. I love supporting fellow Etsy-ers, so I’ll head to check out the shops you linked to! BTW – love that you support small business!

I love Etsy, but it’s not always super affordable for me in Canada. Most of the time it’s the shipping costs that do me in, it’s usually $10-20 more to ship to Canada. 🙁

Lexi says · 06.16.15

When searching for stuff you can filter the shop location to canada so you don’t have to pay outrageous shipping costs

I have been looking for cute placemats for forever! I never thought to check Etsy out. Great idea!

We are huge Etsy shoppers, love to support small businesses. I order almost all of my babe’s clothing from handmade shops and Instagram businesses so Etsy is a huge part of that process. Something about knowing who and where her clothes are made is important to us. Plus there are so many unique pieces you’ll never find in the big name stores and I love having those for her. Follow along at @snippets.of.e to see! <3

I love etsy!! Those people are wayy more creative than I am! My sister has her own store, http://Www.etsy.com/shop/hookedonharry and makes the cutest stuffed animals and jewelry. You should check it out! I also love kitchen items too!

I would buy the cat placemats in a heartbeat, if only my cat didn’t think lifting up the mats and spilling her bowls was a fun activity. I have loved shopping on Etsy for years, but recently just took the leap and opened my own shop! I enjoy making decorative letters for home decor or photo props.
