Another bonus of shopping with Etsy this year? You have the added benefit of shopping from a small business owner who could definitely benefit from your custom after the long and difficult year we have all had in 2020. So without further ado, let’s dive into some beautiful Etsy stores and see what you could be buying this December…
Based in Norwich, this gorgeous vintage shop is filled with affordable second hand finds. Any item from this store is bound to be a hit with vintage loving friends. Not only can you find vintage clothing in this store, but also vintage jewellery and bags too.
Know someone who has just moved house? Or perhaps someone who loves unique homeware? You’ll want to take a peek at Best Vintage Highlands for beautiful, affordable brass homeware. From candle holders to dishes and décor- you’re covered with this cute Etsy store.
And if you’re into vintage jewellery? You’re going to absolutely love Retro Rox Jewellery. My personal favourite is a gorgeous moon pendant from the 1970s for £16- all of the ‘This Is Us’ vibes! You can certainly find something for all of your friends in this store, without breaking the bank.
For Christmas themed gifts themselves, you’ll want to head to a shop like Lou Loves Vintage & Co. This Etsy store has wooden vintage Christmas tree decorations and they are gorgeous. The store has lots of bits and pieces- many with a wooden vintage theme which is perfect for winter gifting.
Another vintage clothing store that you will love is Honey Roar Vintage- based in London and with an incredible amount of gorgeous listings, you will surely find a pre-loved gem here (whether it’s for you or a loved one!). At the time of writing the store has everything from beautiful Laura Ashley pieces to 1970’s jumpsuits.
So what about new things made from old? Some circular fashion? Some upcycling? Brilliant eco shop In Green Shop has lots of eco-friendly buys, but they also sell the most gorgeous scrunchies made from recycled saris. From just £3.99, these are the perfect stocking filler.
Got a brother who’s a bookworm? You can find exquisite books in Etsy stores such as The Vintage Bookworm UK which have been used and loved over the years. See if you can find a memorable story, or perhaps an old favourite in a beautifully worn cover. A thoughtful and environmentally friendly gift!
Know someone who loves decades from the past? The fashion, the music, the food? A lovely nostalgic gift for someone is a vintage magazine. Head to Vintage Mag Archive to find the perfect vintage magazine from their favourite decade.
So that concludes our Etsy Christmas gift guide- remember to shop small this Christmas and support all those independent business owners in our communities.
