Etsy spotlight; The top ten.

I've had a little bit of a love affair with Etsy since I can remember. I love to support independent businesses, and you can give me a bit of Etsy over a high street store any day of the week. Etsy has really grown over the past few years, so I thought to share a bit of the love, I'd start doing a monthly feature on some of my favourite stores.

12. 3. 4. 5.

01. This popped up on the Etsy homepage today, from a store I've never seen before but fell immediately in love with. Rachel loves Bob makes a wonderful selection of handmade jewellery in different styles. I just really love the colours and design of this little necklace.

02. Of course, I couldn't not feature the incredibly talented Ella Masters in this post. One of my favourite bloggers, she has an amazing shop filled with illustrations, tote bags, phone cases, and her ever popular 'tattooed man/lady' prints. I love everything she does, but this 'dream big' sign is something I'd love to have hanging in my office.

03. I've had Creative Design by Thao bookmarked for absolutely ages. He sells the prettiest handmade bracelets and rings in little words. Personally I love the wish bracelet featured and the love ring.

04. I struggle finding cute sleeves or cases for my Nexus 7, but Bertie's Closet has everything. I can't resist a good chevron, especially in such beautiful colours!

 05. Another real favourite is Oh no Rachio, which sells a lovely selection of hand illustrated notebooks, which are pretty hard to resist being the stationery obsessive I am!

6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

06. This Stay home club tote just personifies me, really.. Except that I only have two cats, not four. I love a good tote bag so I can't say no to this.

07. Croatia Vintage is possibly one of the best vintage etsy stores I've come across. It's only a recent discovery, but I've already found a few dresses that I am in love with. The only bad thing is the expensive postage from America, otherwise they'd already be on their way to me!

08. I can't resist a good vintage deer collection, and these little plastic ones are my favourites. They come from Udaskids which sells a gorgeous collection of vintage kidswear.

09. I'm sad to say all my paper straws have just run out, so I'm on the lookout for more. I've never seen a set of different colours, and I love these from Loutinen Events. They sell a gorgeous selection of washi tape and patterned paper bags too.

10. This beautiful vase isn't the usual sort of thing I'd go for, but Carriage Oak Cottage really caught my eye. It's all absolutely wonderful handmade home decor for really reasonable prices. The yellow ombre vase is one of my favourites too.

What do you think of my picks? Are you much of an Etsy shopper?
