I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! It was my first Thanksgiving in California with 70 degree weather and I will admit it was pretty nice. I was getting messages from family back home in Iowa and they were getting hit with tons of snow.
Over the weekend I managed to get nearly all of my Christmas shopping done. There were so many incredible deals I spent Friday afternoon and just knocked it out. I’ve become quite the procrastinator lately so I’m proud of myself to get my shopping done so early. A lot of my gifts are actually from small businesses on Etsy or Brika, a site with the best hand-made things. I love finding new boutiques and small shops and Etsy is one of my favorite places to discover new ones. On Small Business Saturday Etsy hosted a popup shop with 200 local vendors in San Francisco. There were so many beautiful crafts, jewelry, organic skincare, and really great gift ideas! I now have a stack of business cards to go through and add to my favorites on Etsy (I have 10 pages so far. Cait has a serious amount if you’re looking for even more Etsy recommendations.). I thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite Etsy shops — and some of them are having Cyber Monday sales!
Taryn St. Michele – I met her at the SF popup shop and she’s so nice and her prints are just amazing!

If you have a favorite Etsy shop I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
