Treasury of the Week - Hometown

'Hometown Homemade'

by curated by Becca Strout for Crispinaffrench

Etsy is a great way to avoid the big box stores when it comes to finding beautiful & unique gifts. You can shop local on Etsy too; here are some very talented crafters in the Western Mass and the Hudson Valley. Try shopping locally, even online, this year.  Many of the makers shown below will be selling at The Shire City Sanctuary Holiday Shopping Shindy this coming weekend.

Every week we gather a handful of treasures around a theme, from Etsy - an online marketplace featuring handmade wares, vintage items, and supplies for making. Weekly treasuries are featured here on Mondays. You can click on the images above and be taken to a place on Etsy where there is more information and pictures about that item. My online shop is located on Etsy along with a whole ton (like millions and millions) of other handmakers, vintage resellers and material retailers. If you have a minute, leave a comment about your favorite featured item - it is always so nice to hear from you!
