Since I spend my days making things, I often find I troll around Etsy.com for supplies rather than taking advantage of the amazing handmade goods. Certainly other makers out there get the same flash of, “But wait, I can make that…” instead of adding something to their shopping cart. Sometimes, however, we need to realize that in order to really support the handmade community, we need to give credit where it is due and make some purchases. Here is a quicky list of a few of my favorite handmade shops on Etsy that have provided amazing customer service. Check out these fabulous shops and enjoy!
For this past Christmas, I tried to get as many gifts as I could handmade for my family and friends. I came across My Little Chickadee through the EtsyTwitter Team and ordered a set of custom stamped coasters to give to my father. Needless to say, they were very well received! This shop also offers save-the-date magnets and ornaments. The quality is fabulous and the service is superb.
I. Love. Handmade. Soaps.
When I saw this shop featured on Heartsy, I jumped on the deal! I was able to order a bunch of wonderfully unique handmade soaps. The soaps came individually wrapped in charming papers, perfect for giving. Though I mainly purchased this for myself, I suppose I’ll end up gifting one or two… Or not. More for me!
