Let’s Talk Shop

I’ve got shopping on the brain since I’m woefully behind on Christmas shopping, so today we’re gonna talk shop.

For you locals, you need to go check out the Little Green Bean Boutique right here on the East side of Indy.  I may be a little biased since she carries bobaloo! products, but I think Heather’s store is just awesome.  It’s a mix of children’s resale and items from local handmade artists.  Take a look around!

Had I been thinking ahead, I would have posted this earlier in the week because she hosted a wine-and-shopping ladies night event last night.  I was with the original bobaloo at the Nutcracker last night so I missed it, but a little birdie named Martha told me it was awesome.

It has come to my attention that a few of you lovely readers have shops of your own.  First up, my blog buddies Emily and Hannah have a great Etsy shop featuring bags, clutches, and totes, plus they run a blog.  Make sure you check out both!

Also, Patty has a brand spanking new Etsy shop with the coolest handmade stuff that would make great stocking stuffers.  Plaid Cupcake Design’s only been open a few weeks and Patty already has 11 sales!!  Holy moly girl, we all need lessons from you!  Do you have a blog to share your secrets yet?

Here are a few of my very favorite Etsy shops:

  • Milk and Cookies – awesome paper goods!
  • Lil’ Doodlers – adorable shaped crayons.  This girl has only had her shop open a few months, and she already has over 200 sales!  How great is that?!
  • AN Original Jewelry – the cutest silver jewelry ever.  I want one of everything.
  • My Paper Crane – I love love love Heidi Kenney’s stuff.  You should check out her blog, too.

I could go on and on, really.  I love to shop on Etsy.  Do you guys have any favorite places to buy handmade?  And do you have your own shop?  Let us all know in the comments!


  1. Oh, you are so sweet, Sam! Thanks for the shout out:)

  2. Aw, thank you thank you for including me! I think the only advice I have for now is to tell everyone from your dentist to your cleaning lady about your shop - you never know who's going to buy next. I don't have a blog YET (forthcoming, I swear!) but you CAN become a fan of Plaid Cupcake Designs on facebook at

  3. You're welcome Emily and Patty! And Patty, let us know when that blog's ready for visitors!


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear from you!
