In 2016 (a while back now!) I made a post sharing some of what is on my Etsy ‘favourites’ list or wishlist in general and I really enjoyed making it and sharing some of my favourite artists off the website because I love bringing attention to artists and some of the amazing things they create! Lately due to University and other scenarios I haven’t been able to save up much money or treat myself to stuff off Etsy but hopefully in the future I’ll be able to splurge and make some purchases towards independent businesses and I definitely encourage other people do as well!
Purchasing from independent businesses can be pricier sometimes and I understand not everybody can ‘treat themselves’ over a certain budget but I definitely encourage browsing and following these creators because they put so much time and effort and love into their creations and definitely deserve recognition and reward for what they do! So here is a quick, illustrated wishlist along with links to each shop/creator and the product themselves!
The first creator is ‘andsmile’ who is based in London, England and creates gorgeous illustrations as prints to sell. I originally came across the ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ print on my Etsy recommended and fell in love with her style and would love to get one of her prints for my bedroom one day or I could totally picture one in my future dream study.
The next store on my wishlist is a creator I’ve been really lucky to have purchased a t-shirt from them earlier this year. I already own LiteraryEmporium’s Pride and Prejudice quote t-shirt but I’d absolutely adore some more of their quote apparel, also I adore their jewellery ranges because I think how they are gifted with the quotes they are inspired by is a really lovely touch.
My last pick for this post definitely has to be the glorious artist Em and her etsy store which is filled with gorgeous positive art that promotes self-love, self-care and loving the environment. I absolutely adore the ‘Made it Through’ print because it’s the kind of reminder I need myself sometimes and I think her style is absolutely gorgeous. Her badges collection is also really adorable and affordable!
Feel free to share some of your favourite creators from Etsy or even Instagram, Society6 and other freelancers! I definitely recommend checking out these three shops and their social media and supporting what they do because there is some incredible talent right there!
Thanks for reading,
