Etsy: you’re either already an addict, or just an innocent shopper waiting to be converted. The curated site has everything from skinny rings to vegan skull candles, covering home, fashion, beauty, stationery and more. But if the thought of wading through every single seller is a little overwhelming, the Etsy awards have picked out the top 6 sellers from across each category (and we’ve thrown in our favourites for good measure). Get ready to spend…
People’s Choice: Sincerely Louise
If you’re an Etsy user already, you’ll know Louise from her genius knitted animal heads. Buy a ready-made knitted deer to hand over your fireplace, or knit your own on Louise’s faux taxidermy tiger rug. She also does hats, scarves and tiny, tiny toys.
Home & Living: Estampe & Co
Wallpaper addicts, French artist-designers Loic and Anne-Sophie are about to become your new Etsy obsession. Look closer at their graphic peel and stick wallpapers, prints and borders to see the unexpected details, like a ladies’ faces and neon green monkeys made into abstract prints. Use for walls or general upcycling.
Fashion & Acessories: Pluck’d Designs
We never thought we’d be so excited about reflective wool. Saffie Pluck makes knitted urban wear, great for cyclists or anyone who wants to feel a bit more visible in this big scary world. There are clutch bags, snoods, baby clothes and even a hanging planter.
Retail Star: Yvonne Ellen
Love vintage homeware with an edge? Yvonne Ellen is all about polkadot crockery splattered with rainbow bright bees, sausage dogs and pineapple prints. Those Prosecco and Gin teacups are crying for, well, prosecco. And gin.
New Talent: Featheroak
Etsy jewelry is known for being delicately dainty (and exactly the kind of thing you can stack on your fingers and wrists every single day), and Featheroak are no exception. Sapphire, sea glass and quartz rings are banded on gold, silver and rose gold. We’ll take them all.
Kids & Baby: Button and Blue
Etsy baby sellers have definitely been influenced by Prince George when it comes to their cute knitted cardigans and mittens. They’ve even got clouds on them! Whether you’re expecting, have kids or just want to prepare for any potential future children (…is that weird?), we are very much into the pom-pom pocket detailing.
