Shopping Local

I was hunting around on Etsy recently and found some cool stuff from artist that are local in the Chicago Market. Shopping local is one of my goals this year, so I was thrilled to find all these fun designs.
I love the shop local button on Etsy!

  1. I went beachcombing the other day and got driftwood, shells, glass & rocks

  2. Fabulous finds!! I especially love the silver jewelry.

    I shopped at a local quilt shop this week, and hope to hit another one tomorrow where I'll buy a bag for a local/regional NE Quilt Shop Hop which falls conveniently right after tax season (April 18-28).

  3. Wonderful goodies you found! I love the clock especially.

    As local business owners in our city, we always try to support the mom & pop's whenever possible. Our latest find was a little Peruvian restaurant that was tucked away in a shopping center and we never even really knew it was there. Bonus - it was delicious!!

  4. I've been wanting to get a pair of fingerless gloves on Etsy but now that we are approaching spring, I've kinda forgotten about it... those are so cute though! Fun to shop local, I should try it too. ;)

  5. I had to check out the sea pods right away. Really cool! The silver necklace is so unique, too. Great mix of items.

  6. those fingerless glovse are so cute. Yes, I like them alot. Going to check them out.

  7. Beautiful finds! I love the fingerless gloves.

  8. Oh the porcelain pods are so lovely! (I'm a sucker for succulents too!)

  9. What great local finds! Buying local is great...I always come home from shows with new goodies :)

  10. You have so much talent in your area! I have not done this yet with where I love but did join a regional team on Etsy! I feels great to support local crafter.
