Our greatest joy here at R29 is supporting clever small businesses and hobbyists with creative savoir faire — and bringing you inspired, off-the-beaten-path designs. So, naturally, trolling the handmade fantasyland of Etsy on the reg is mandatory for both work and play. But with more than a thousand pages dedicated to art alone, the site can easily cause e-fatigue after just a few (very addictive) hours.
And let's face it, not every seller knocks it out of our particular aesthetic park (to each her own!). So, to save you from sifting through endless art projects gone wrong, we've curated a collection of some homespun-chic clothes, neat knickknacks, and badass baubles. Prepare to be awe-stricken with the amount of talent in the world, and just remember that every piece you purchase comes equipped with the warm fuzzies of knowing it was a labor of love.
