Ethical Gift Guide: Artisan Made Etsy Finds

Until earlier this year, I maintained a small Vintage shop on the Etsy platform. It was fun while it lasted – and I was profitable at times – but the market became more and more congested, which made it difficult to find good vintage clothing locally and market it effectively online. Ultimately, I realized it wasn’t my passion. My real passion is writing, so I donated most of my stock and pursued more blogging and writing opportunities. A few months in, I realize that this is much more fun than selling stuff!
That being said, when I no longer had a reason to log in to Etsy every day, I stopped paying attention to all my favorite shops. I decided to take a trip down memory lane, rekindle the romance, and find some beautiful, handmade things to feature in today’s Gift Guide. 

1. Thief and Bandit Field of Dreams Turtleneck, $88.00

Hand block-printed from original designs and made in Canada.

2. Dai Li Jewelry Handmade “Hand” Brooch, $22.93 each

Porcelain, made in Australia.

3. United Threads Poppy Pod Print, $45.00

Archival print of an original watercolor. I own two prints from United Thread and they’re even more stunning in person. 

4. Freedom Soap Company Pine + Eucalyptus Soap, $8.00

Palm oil free. I have purchased from Freedom Soap in the past and I LOVE the subtle fragrances and the lack of allergic reactions!
