This holiday season avoid vanilla mass-produced-anyone-can-buy-and-everyone-will-have gifts. Skip the stampede. Be creative. Find originals.
We’re obsessed with using Etsy to find and support individual artisans. So crunchy and cool. We get to do our part for the economy by stimulating small businesses. Not to mention, no crowds, no middleman, and best of all-for all us gals on a budget -no middleman mark-ups.
We must be candid, it can be a bit hard to sift through so many items — so we’re sharing an edited assortment of chic gifts and stocking stuffers suitable for every shopping budget. (Remember these are crafted by hand and are in short supp;y, so if they're gone when you're get there ask the shop owner if they'll make you a new one or have something similar.)
