Do you have a favourite @Etsy shop? Or do you own an Etsy shop? I’m putting together a gift guide/top picks blog post in collaboration with @EtsyCA and I’d love to hear about your favourites! 💕 Feel free to introduce yourselves, where you’re from, and what you make and sell so we can all get to know each other! I LOVE browsing Etsy and discovering new handmade artists, so if there are any cool shops I should know about, please let me know! ☺️ Tag your favourites to let them know how awesome they are too! . Jenn of @croochetshop sells amazingly adorable amigurumi in her Etsy shop, like chubby whales and little duckling keychains! 🐤🐳 She crocheted these two specifically for Myla & Brie using these colours so that they would match the mermaid tail blankets that I made for them 😱😍. Thank you, Jenn!!! Check out her Etsy shop for cuteness overload!
