Mini-piñatas by Lula Flora 

When I’m on the hunt for that unique, one-of-a-kind thing, Etsy is almost always my first stop. (I mean where else am I going to find the most perfect mini pineapple piñatas?) From art to party supplies to handmade jewelry and home goods, this place is booming with all kinds of talented artisans. However, with so many shops, sifting through all of them can seem a bit daunting. Allow this list to help you. Here, seven of my favorite quick hits on Etsy.

1. Southern Linen

If you’re like me and love a monogram then you’re going to really enjoy Southern Linen. They monogram everything from bedding to table linens to bath towels. All orders are totally custom and you can choose from a variety of different thread colors (I love this bright tangerine color!) and monogram styles. It’s a go-to spot of mine for gifts – especially for brides!

2. Pink Wasabi Ink

While we’re on the subject of monograms, let’s talk about Pink Wasabi Ink. This shop offers all kinds of custom home goods (placemats, mousepads, you name it!). My favorite things from this shop are their lucite trays. They’re under $50 and make for excellent gifts.

3. Tala Home Design

Want to see the cutest baskets ever? Check out Tala Home Design. With bright paints and pom-poms, this designer manages to turn your ordinary basket into something really special. Handmade in Greece, these seagrass baskets are great for so many different things – beach bags, picnic totes, and stylish storage, too! I use mine to corral Lucy’s toys.

4. Pillow Time Girls

If you’re in need of some pretty pillows, this is a good spot. They offer so many different colors and prints and they have oodles of designer fabrics – from Kelly Wearstler to John Robshaw (I love this one) to Schumacher and more!

5. Lula Flora

You all know how much I love a fiesta so it should come as no surprise that Lula Flora is a favorite of mine. It’s my go-to when I’m in need of fiesta decorations. The mini piñatas (these pineapples!) are their specialty, but I also love her papel picados and cake toppers.

6. Missive

Whether you’re looking for new stationery or a birthday card, Missive has it covered. The letterpress studio offers some of the most gorgeous paper goods. I like to keep a pile of their cards on hand to use for birthdays, weddings, or just when I want to send some fun snail-mail. Note: they have some really pretty options for Mother’s Day!

7. Peggy Wolf

Peggy Wolf is an artist I discovered while on one of my Sunday spirals down the Etsy rabbit hole. And I’m so glad I did. The German artist’s portraits of beautiful women are captivating. I love her use of color and quirky details.
