In January, the lovely Kate Pruitt put together a guide for the 10 Etsy Shops You Should Know. I found the guide not only helpful in locating some of my now favorite Etsy shops, but also for inspiring my own personal dive into the never-ending shopping abyss that is Etsy.com. So I have decided to share a new list of 10 more Etsy shops I think you should get to know.
These shops not only showcase some marvelous craftsmanship, but also gather some incredible vintage finds as well. From industrial goods and ceramic ware, to custom stationery and quirky needlework toys, all of these shops do a great job of selecting and creating unique and beautiful items.
There are thousands of other great Etsy shops out there (and thousands more to come I’m sure), so please share your personal favorites in the comments.
These adorable needlework toys are crafted with wool from the shop owner’s own flock of sheep: Maggie, Ruthie, Lily, Alice and Mr. McMak. A self-taught needleworker, Amy is focused on creating sustainable toys for everyone to enjoy, and who wouldn’t enjoy these little guys! These toys make me smile!
UK-based designer Sarah Louise Matthews is a master with paper. Her paper cut art and stationery is some of the best I have seen. I think my favorite piece from her shop has to be the origami bird cutout artwork.
Trained in the art of ceramics and painting, Heather Dahl put her skills to great use in the making of her “Poppies” collection. Her shop is full of great geometric printed ceramics and really great one-of-kind pieces that would make for perfect gifts for your friends and family.
I love all of the products this shop finds. They are random, quirky and just downright special. I don’t quite know what I would do with a marble slab elephant, but I want it bad! I know I can always count on luola to produce a unique find every single time.
Edith just stumbled upon ceramics one day. Since then, she has been crafting beautiful household ceramic wares. I love her unique patterned detail work. I have always been a fan of the traditional blue and white porcelain thanks to my mother’s large collection, so it’s nice to see a great update to that traditional design.
