Good Shopping: Re-Nest's Favorite Etsy Stores

Today Re-Nest posted a list of its favorite Etsy stores—and I can’t wait to check them  out. Etsy is a shopping site with a goal “to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.” The site’s motto is “buy, sell and live handmade,” and it’s my go-to place whenever I’m in the market for handmade textiles, vintage goods or original artwork. The site lets me buy direct from artisans and cruise meticulously curated shops—without leaving my chair.

A few of Re-Nest’s favorites for 2011:

Vintage Home 

The Old Red Hen
Trampoline by ethanollie
Lucky Little Dot
Hindsvik Vintage
Little Byrd Vintage
High Street Market
Blue Bell Bazaar 

Handmade Decor, Ceramics and Furniture Designers 

Grey Works Design
My Grey Sky
Cynthia Vardhan
Alyssa Ettinger
Paloma's Nest 

Textiles and Pillows 

Claudia Pearson
Girls Can Tell
Oh, Little Rabbit
House of Bouton
Swanky Swell
Erin Dollar
Skinny Laminx


United Thread
Bicycle Paintings
Oh My Cavalier!
Olive Dear
Sea Spray Blue 

Re-Nest’s Cambria Bold writes that this “is just a small, teeny-weeny sampling” of all that Etsy has to offer, and she invited readers to submit their own favorites. I’ll be checking back to see what they have to say.
