Because it is a big marketplace it's hard to navigate and find the good stores/sellers. There is definitely a lot of ugly on Etsy and sometimes poor craftmanship as well. I thought I would share some of my favorite stores on Etsy with you with the hopes that you would share your favorite stores on Etsy in my comments section!
Also, I'm looking forward to sharing pictures of two projects I finished a couple of months ago but couldn't take pictures of until now.
MY FAV ETSY STORES
Martha and Ash has great pillows and curtains. They aren't the cheapest, but not expensive either. Right in the middle. I haven't ordered from them personally but their stuff looks quality.
One Life Jewelry is the best personalized jewelry store on Etsy. I ordered a necklace for myself for mother's day (pathetic, I know, but I know what I want better than anyone else :) She is very well priced for the craftmanship of her jewelry and easy to work with. She will personalize anything she sells. I LOVE my necklace by her.
Sukan has the best suzani pillows and hand embroidered pillows. This store out of Europe has very high quality home decor. Pillows range from $50 - $250 so they are not cheap, but should last you a very long time.
This pottery shop is simple and beautiful pottery. This set of three vases is $150, which is very reasonable for original pottery.
Amber Alexander's art are great original watercolor prints for your kids rooms or she also paints some wonderful moody landscapes.
If you are throwing a party or need gift supplies this store has the cutest string for tying packages, and the best faux bois cards!
This is the most amazing jewelry store on Etsy (in my opinion). I wish I had the money to buy one of her bib necklaces. They are SUPER cool. Definitely worth the money if you have it.
Okay so there are a lot more...to be continued. My kiddos are needing me so there will be a part II. Please leave comments on your favorite Etsy stores!
