Good Shopping: Re-Nest's Favorite Etsy Stores

Today Re-Nest posted a list of its favorite Etsy stores—and I can’t wait to check them  out. Etsy is a shopping site with a goal “to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.” The site’s motto is “buy, sell and live handmade,” and it’s my go-to place whenever I’m in the market for handmade textiles, vintage goods or original artwork. The site lets me buy direct from artisans and cruise meticulously curated shops—without leaving my chair.

A few of Re-Nest’s favorites for 2011:

Vintage Home 

The Old Red Hen
Trampoline by ethanollie

Lucky Little Dot

Re-Nest’s Cambria Bold writes that this “is just a small, teeny-weeny sampling” of all that Etsy has to offer, and she invited readers to submit their own favorites. I’ll be checking back to see what they have to say.
