Etsy shops you ought to know

Written by Karen Zapp. Posted in Accessories, Retailers

If you’re not already completely Etsy-obsessed, then brace yourself, because you will be after checking out our list of shops you ought to know. Nowadays, nothing is more chic than being unique, and these shops definitely know a thing or two about how to make you stand out from the crowd. So forget the monotony of mass-produced fast-fashion and grab your wallet because you won’t be able to resist the urge to buy out each of their entire assortments!



A decadently bedazzled shop of crystal and lace covered heels. You won’t be able to help but let your inner Paris Hilton out.


Modern Tribes

Geometric aluminum jewelry that’s perfect for minimalists who crave raw design.


Leanne Marshall

Eco-friendly without sacrificing style. If the name sounds familiar, you recognize her as the winner of Project Runway Season 5.


Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary

Too cute to resist, this shop’s novelty soaps will fool you for the real thing. I’d bet their scrubs, lip tints and body whips are equally indulgent.



Material Memorie

Anything but conventional, this shop offers eyewear worthy of Lady Gaga, or at least her little monsters.



Norwegian Wood

Downtown eclecticism with a tribal edge, the clothing and accessories from this shop are perfect for anyone looking to make a statement.




Featuring pieces from the 1910s to the 1980s, this shop offers high glamour at prices you won’t believe. You’ll covet every piece.


My Leather Bag

If you’re a fan of the sleek sophistication of Hermes or Michael Kors handbags, this shop is for you. Each and every handmade item is peerlessly timeless and classic.
