Things You Should be Buying on Etsy

June 9, 2020

You’ve likely come across an Etsy store at least once while shopping online, but there are some things you should be buying from Etsy all the time. Shopping on Etsy means buying from small businesses, usually just people making stuff right in their homes. That means you can get a good deal and find some unique stuff too. I’ve made a list of things that I always look for on Etsy first.

Etsy is filled with jewelry. From pendant necklaces to vintage rings, it’s hard not to find what you’re looking for. The selection and the quality is usually better than stuff I find in stores, plus I get so many compliments on it. My most recent favorite is this custom letter necklace I got with Ella’s initials, EJZ. I’m so obsessed that I already want to buy another one.

Christmas Cards
Shopping on Etsy doesn’t just mean supporting small businesses. You can support artists too. I know it’s only June, but I’m already shopping for our Christmas cards for this year. I love both the graphic and hand-drawn family sketches. They’re also great for other holidays too!

Baby gifts
We received a lot of baby blankets at our baby shower, however, two of them were made just for Ella, and they’re my absolute favorite. The first is one my grandma crocheted and the other was from a friend and she found it on Etsy! They have SO many options. This cable knit blanket is so elegant. I’m a sucker for anything super soft. I also love these name puzzles.

Home Decor
Etsy is my go-to for wall prints and old/repurposed furniture.
I recently started working on a gallery wall in one of the rooms of our house. I went back and forth between something artsy and family photos. I eventually decided not to do family photos. Instead I found some prints on Etsy. After looking around, I swear it was the only place that had unique designs.

I think everyone should have a special piece of furniture that’s exclusive to their home. Side tables and chairs are an affordable way to do just that! Etsy has a lot of great options for whatever style your home is.
