Hey there!! I know I mostly talk about books and writing on my blog, but today I’m changing it up and talking about… you’ll never guess… Etsy 😉 It’s one of my favorite places to find beautiful and practical gifts, so I thought I’d tell you about some shops I enjoy.
A few notes before I begin:
- I haven’t purchased something from all of these shops.
- This post is not sponsored by or affiliated with any Etsy shop or owner; I decided to do it all by myself and won’t make any profit from it.
- Photos of products were found at each shop; credit to shop owners.
- I’m doing this around Christmas because many of you might be looking to buy gifts, but it’s also kind of late for shopping, so some of these items might not arrive by Christmas. (Doesn’t mean you can’t still support these shops, though!)
Okay, let’s do this!
ABOUT: Laura Hollingsworth is a Christian illustrator. You may know her work from the cover of Kara Swanson’s Dust or the official Keeper of the Lost Cities character art, and she also posts amazing fanart for Ashtown Burials, LOTR, and many other series/stories that I love. In addition, she writes a webcomic called The Silver Eye which I really want to read! Her Etsy shop features prints of her art.
SHIPPING: Reviews say Laura ships orders quickly, but I can’t tell exactly how long it takes. So if you want to get a Jordan Peterson art print for your dad for Christmas, buy now! XD
ABOUT: On a Mission sells fair trade, sustainable shirts and apparel to fundraise for missionaries!
SHIPPING: Ships from Haiti. Unfortunately, probably not going to get to your house by Christmas (unless you live in Haiti!).
ABOUT: Cecily sells beautiful stickers, washi tape, and other supplies for planners (or snail mail).
SHIPPING: Ships in 7-15 business days. Order soon if you want it to come by Christmas!
ABOUT: Emily sells custom house portraits and prints of her Scripture hand lettering.
SHIPPING: A reviewer says her order arrived in 4 business days 🙂
ABOUT: Jennifer (who is Andrew Peterson’s sister-in-law; how cool is that?) sells art prints, literary coloring pages, and hand-lettered Scripture.
SHIPPING: Reviews say shipping is fast, so order now!
I own this Jim Elliot quote art print, a gift from Jennifer for my birthday! I still need to buy a frame…
ABOUT: Jenna sells prints of her whimsical, hand-drawn illustrations, and products featuring her art.
SHIPPING: Depending on the method you choose, North American buyers can get their orders in 3-5 business days. (Yay!)
ABOUT: Haleigh sells digital downloads of her literary art! On her main shop, she sells apparel and other bookish items.
SHIPPING: For her main shop, Haleigh takes between 5 days and 8 weeks to send out items, which ship in 2-5 business days (see here for details). The file downloads (Etsy) get sent right away, though!
ABOUT: Hannah sells scrunchies, face masks, and key fobs. // visit Hannah’s blog
SHIPPING: Orders ship one day after they’re placed and arrive in 3-5 business days!
My brother got this pack for my sister last year.
ABOUT: Aleigha sells literary swag like keychains, tote bags, and art prints.
SHIPPING: Aleigha isn’t shipping any more orders until January.
Kiki, Charis, and I worked with Aleigha for prizes for our short story contest in May. I didn’t win anything (because I was a judge 😛) but she was an amazing collaborator!
ABOUT: Allison is one of my very favorite artists! She sells art prints, stickers, and artsy supplies. // visit Allison’s blog
SHIPPING: Reviewers say shipping is fast!
ABOUT: Dyanna sells gorgeous botanical shirts.
SHIPPING: Ships in 22-25 business days.
ABOUT: I saved the best for last! My wonderful pen pal Megan sells snail mail kits. // visit Megan’s blog
SHIPPING: Megan’s orders ship in 3-5 business days and are sent on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
I had such fun making this list, and I hope it helps you find the perfect gift for a friend (or yourself!).
