Living a stylish life isn't something that just happens to someone. Sure, if your budget is without boundaries, or you can devote every weekend to making thoughtful purchases at flea markets, vintage stores, and niche designer boutiques, you probably don't need any help curating a beautiful existence. Wait, that's not you? Well, no need to fear.
The solution, you'll see, is Etsy. The artisan-to-consumer marketplace is one of your best bets to find stylish and utterly cool products that make a big impact in your closet and apartment. Plus, they tend to be far more affordable that anything you'd find at a boutique in your 'hood. Of course, we'll admit that weeding through handmade tissue-box covers, finger paintings, and tea cozies to get to the good stuff is a job all in itself. Luckily for you, we accepted that challenge head on — and not just to find treasures, but to find treasures from shops based in Los Angeles. Because, the City of Angels is more than just a hotbed of celebrity and sunshine, it’s also a breeding ground for creative artisans.
