Hi Friends! Hope you've all had a great week! We're furiously adding new items to the site and our new Etsy shop, and we have even more to add! If you're browsing either place and think of something you need that we don't currently stock, please drop us a line and let us know - we're always looking to make your shopping experience better!
To celebrate the launch of our new Etsy shop, we thought we'd share the love and link to some of our favorite other shops.
YaoChengDesign hand watercolors her stunning art and turns it into everything from prints to tea towels (our personal favorite/obsession)! So, so gorgeous!!!
VMWoodFactree creates unfinished wood pieces - everything from letters and numbers to cars and trains! His prices are extremely reasonable and he makes everything himself (and uses non-toxic materials - yay!). Erin used the cars shown above for her son's 4th birthday party. The kids each got a car to decorate and then they raced them through PVC tunnels wrapped in colorful duct tape - the kids LOVED it!
Do we *need* these amazing rolling pins that feature every design we can imagine, from pineapples to soccerballs to dinosaurs? Perhaps not, but ValekRollingPins even has really useful ones, such as a "Vegan" or "Gluten-free" print! And we're suckers for these prints, even if only to put on display in our kitchens. They're kind of amazing.
We adore LoveForEarth's shop - filled with eco-friendly and high-quality goods! Some of our favorites that we've ordered or plan to order are (as seen above): the reusable produce bags, reusable cloth napkins (these feature gorgeous fall colored edging - swoon!), and the cell phone bag (not fully waterproof, but works if you need to protect your phone from sweat or light rain while cycling, for example).
We met Annie from LovelyLyraOrganics at the Crafted Life Market last weekend (if you're local and missed out on the markets this summer, check out the holiday markets December 3rd and 10th!). She and her family are, indeed, lovely and her baby clothing is, too! We're gaga over this floral pattern...too bad she doesn't make clothing beyond 4T or we'd be tempted to have something made for ourselves! She's got tons of fun prints, including seasonal options.
We could go on for days - there are so many amazing shops on Etsy right now! It's truly amazing what the Etsy marketplace has become over the last decade or so. We remember shopping there when it was an unknown little site with a small number of shops...not exactly the case these days! What are some of your favorite shops? We'd love to hear from you!
Have a fabulous and fancy weekend!
Erin & Sarah
