Your Mid-Week Diversion: Our New Fave (Local!) Etsy Shop

When it comes to shopping, "vintage" and "local" are two of our favorite search terms. But some days, instead of hitting the boutiques, we want to get our fix from the comfort of our keyboard, while also supporting local entrepreneurs.
This is where our love for Etsy's Shop Local option becomes a full-fledged obsession — so many amazing virtual shops (technically) right in our neighborhood! One such treasure trove is Ottoline's Oddities, where shop curator Laurel collects lovely vintage home decor, clothing, accessories, and a few of the namesake oddities. Click through to see some of our favorites from her current offerings.
