Etsy Shops You want to buy Gifts From This Year

When 2020 started it had so much promise. We had no idea what was coming. I want to encourage those that do still have jobs and still plan on purchasing holiday gifts to do so from a small shop. Do some guilt free shopping from a person, rather than a giant corporation. Here is a quick gift guide of Etsy shops and other small online shops.  Amazon has had record sales during the pandemic, they can handle losing a couple holiday sales.  We have personally purchased from several of these shops and have loved the products. I am also sharing my etsy shop and my daughter’s etsy shop. I can tell you from personal experience that Etsy sellers do a little happy dance when they see they have a sale.  Jeff Bezos will never do that for you.  Buy from a little guy. Now more than ever, people will really appreciate you at least taking a look!

Etsy is an amazing marketplace full of vintage and hand made items all over the world.

Make sure to buy at least a couple products from small shops like these!  When you buy something you love from a small business, make sure to share how much you love them with others.  If you buy something here, I would love for you to support our family’s small business (this blog!) and every small business featured here by sharing this article. Buying from a small business is just a great way to help us all get through to the other side.  Thank you to my friends and friends of friends who shared their shops.


Until Next Time ~ Kate
