The Coolest Cali Etsy Shops To Bookmark Now

Since we first stumbled upon Etsy, this massive online marketplace has quickly become one of our favorite places to hunt down handmade jewelry, independent designers, and one-of-a-kind vintage finds. But if you're anything like us, the insane variety and sheer volume of goods can be a little bit intimidating and a lot overwhelming. So, instead of risking a gnarly case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and letting the web suck even more of your time, just use our handy guide for finding the best L.A. vendors on the e-shopping mega-site.

The 9 Etsy e-shops you need in your life now:


1. Homako:
These whimsical origami-like necklaces are genius for fall. Opt for a shorter style with your prim button-up to get in on this fall's updated choker trend.

2. Foret L.A.:
If you like A.P.C., you'll love the adorable peasant tops and simple shift dresses at Foret L.A.--and the super-reasonable prices.

3. The Looksee:
If you're the kind of L.A. lass that picks your accessories before the rest of your outfit, you won't want to miss The Looksee. We think the handmade necklaces crafted from vintage Deco Czech glass beads are definitely dreamy.

4. Plastique:
If you get pumped about graphic design, then you can't miss Plastique. The graphic 2-D acrylic rings and necklaces featuring the L.A. skyline, cassette players, and different fonts are cheeky and cute.

5. Trust Fund 21:
Etsy is known for its killer vintage vendors, and Trust Fund 21 is one of our faves. We're seriously crushing on the leopard pumps and ladylike boxy handbags.

6. Golden State Of Things:
If you want a Burberry-esque shearling coat for a fraction of the price, don't miss Golden State of Things for some seriously sick thrifted treasures.

7. Serina Paris:
This adorable e-shop features some of the most darling dresses available on the web. Get the Louis Vuitton runway look for less with these demure skirt styles.


8. Enid and Edgar:
Enid and Edgar is the perfect place to indulge your inner Lady of the Canyon. We love her polka-dot top and belted skirts for a weekend at the Rose Bowl.

9. Tropical Gothic:
This L.A. native makes mesmerizing drawings, digital collages, and prints that are inspired by organic shapes and natural forms like larvae and the desert. We're all about investing in local artists, and anything from the Tropical Gothic site is a safe bet.
