30 Handmade Etsy Finds We LOVE

There's something about buying a handmade good that makes the world feel a little smaller, a little more connected. It also inspires hope that mass production hasn't completely engulfed every area of our lives. Lucky for us, as you may already know, a lot of full-time and weekend artists live right here in New York, creating high-design furniture, threads, and jewelry all around the boroughs. And, we mean ALL around the city. That's why we adore Etsy — it takes everyone's creations and allows us to check them out in one convenient, online place.
But, there's also a lot of tacky, weird stuff listed, too. So, to help you out, we scoured the shopping hub for the coolest, most fabulous pieces at all price ranges. If you're seeking the quirkiest of planters, chicest of pocket squares, and sleekest of soap dishes, get excited. Your wallet on the other hand should be afraid — very afraid.
