We love Etsy for all things unique and handmade. Etsy is always one of my go-to’s when looking for something different or custom. I have found so many great things from a handmade flower girl head dress for my daughter to wear in my brother’s recent wedding (where I could choose the ribbon and adornments to suit the beach theme), to one-of-a-kind jewelry and personalized dog collars. Because there are so many great shops on Etsy, it’s hard to know where to begin, so I like to start by selecting the “shop local” button, where your results will be filtered to those fabulous fashion pieces created by Birmingham folks. It’s wonderful to support our local brick and mortar stores, but also our local Etsy shops, as well! Here are a few Birmingham favorites!
Personalized stationery is a great to give as a gift and to keep on hand for yourself. I love the of-the-moment chevron print on this one!
Local artist Jane Lazenby has taken some of her beautiful artwork and printed it on notecards. These cards are a real treasure! www.etsy.com/shop/janelazenbyartist
Elizabeth David Designs offers super cute cases for all your electronics. I love the happy print featured here, but her Etsy shop has lots more cute and colorful options. www.etsy.com/shop/elizabethdaviddesign
Personalized Cosmetic Case
This personalized cosmetic case would make a great graduation gift for any girl. They come in two different sizes and are perfect for cosmetics, sunscreens or to keep things tidy in a diaper bag! www.etsy.com/shop/byhishandsdesign
I love the boho feel of this suede bracelet. The pendant is made from found wood and hand painted by the artist. Tres chic! www.etsy.com/shop/anchoranddaisy
This three-strand bracelet is made from gold African trade beads, crystal roundels and white coco beads and would look good on any wrist (especially mine!). www.etsy.com/shop/shallawistastudio
Bride Monogrammed Shirt
Perfect for getting ready on the big day! This monogrammed shirt would be such a special keepsake for both the bride and her attendants. www.etsy.com/shop/cutiesforcuties
This body lotion boasts maximum moisturizing without any help from chemical emulsifiers or artificial thickeners. Remember what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it! www.etsy.com/shop/alchemyinaction
A nice touch for a child’s room or baby nursery, this original painting features a fluffy puffy sheep in shades of blue and aqua. The 8 x 10 canvas will fit in most any traditional frame. www.etsy.com/shop/asimplekindoffancy
Who doesn’t love a portrait of their favorite pet? This one is a 4 x 5″ and comes with a ribbon attached for hanging. www.etsy.com/shop/kittypluscoco
Etsy has so many fabulous finds and there’s an added bonus when you find one that is local!
