Things I've bought and LOVED on Etsy

I've found that Etsy is a wonderful marketplace for more than just jewelry (like mine - LOL). I've been very happy with my purchases - a handmade jersey shirt, crocheted washcloths and some fabulous "green" dog toys. Here are my reviews for those of you who may be afraid to take the handmade plunge...

Little Bits long sleeve shirt from I LOVE this shirt and have worn it twice already. Hubby likes it, it fits well and it arrived very quickly. I usually wear a size M and it fits true to size. I think that the quality of these pieces is very good and worth the price.

Tug 'o War toys from My chocolate lab "puppy" -- she's a year old and still loves to chew, of course -- loves these toys. They are made with reclaimed tennis balls (check out the story on woofpurrcreations' site) and braided fleece in your selection of colors. Ginger is happy and she is eating fewer of my kids' toys, so we are all happy! Plus, this is a green solution. Everybody can feel great about this one. Customer service was terrific.

Handmade washcloths custom ordered through the Alchemy feature on Etsy from The picture is not of the washcloths (sorry, don't have one), but these little hats are adorable and show how great busymommy is at her craft. I received several washcloths in colors that coordinate with my kitchen perfectly. They have held up and do a great job. This is a very "green" alternative to paper towels! Busymommy's communication was great and her work was fantastic!

These are just a few of the great sellers on Etsy whose work impresses and inspires me!

  1. I love that long-sleeved shirt! As soon as I lose ten pounds I'm going to buy some clothes on etsy. Until then, I just admire from a distance!
