If you've read my blog before, you probably know I am obsessed with "handmade" just as much as I'm obsessed with makeup. I own a shop on Etsy (think huge, online craft show) and I am constantly discovering really awesome products from other sellers.
Why I shop (and love) handmade:
1. It feels so good to support a small business owner vs. a large corporation
2. The things you find on Etsy will be unique because they aren't in every mall across America.
3. Many shops will customize their products to your specifications/likings!
Here are some handmade items I'm currently in love with.
The Oversized Ego Scarf
$48 from seller, topherco
Isn't this scarf amazing? This shop is on vacation until September 24th, but as soon as the shop owner returns I am so picking up one of these awesome, chunky infinity scarves for Fall. Thinking of choosing a neutral color like cream/wheat so it matches different fall/winter coats. If this scarf is too big for you, the seller does make a smaller version.
$35 by HRHCOLLECTION
I love jewelry pieces that mix gold and silver together. Shop owner, Alex, used to have an Etsy shop but has since started her own webshop. She has really great style (check out her blog) and is amazing at designing jewelry. If I could, I would seriously buy out her entire shop. I've had my eye on this chunky metal wrap bracelet which fades from gold to silver (love the name-- the ombre bracelet!).
$22 by WhiteOwl
This shop has been featured in Lucky Magazine & Marie Claire! It's no wonder why her products were chosen. WhiteOwl has beautiful earrings, necklaces and bracelets all made from lace. I love big, statement jewelry and many of her pieces are just that.
