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!
