Link To Your Favorite Etsy Sellers Here!


Please link to your favorite Etsy Sellers here!  I have families from all walks of life and many different countries who read this blog.  Many of them are contemplating adding more handmade or small-seller gifts to their holiday celebrations for the very first time (and as we all know, sometimes this can be the first step toward also making some gifts next year!)


However,  these readers have no idea where to start on Etsy.  Therefore,  I would love for you all, my dear readers, to post links to the sellers you love on Etsy and what you have bought this year or in the past.


Okay, let the linking begin, and thank you for helping other families move toward handmade!


Many blessings, what fun!

  1. Ooooh! Where do I begin?!! I’ll try to limit my response here. :)

    I bought hand knit hats from this shop and they are amazing! Here is a link for Mad About Color:

    I also love the jewelry from this shop. Very nature inspired and reasonably priced.

    More amazing jewelry and mini-terrariums in rings and pendants (seriously. AMAZING.)

    And lastly, the most beautiful needle felted wool fairies and angels.

    Thank you, Carrie, for supporting Etsy. My own shop, Qwink, is closed now for the holidays, but I look forward to sewing up some more little clothes this spring!

  2. Hi Carrie
    Some good Waldorf inspired shops can be found under the following two teams:
    For both teams, the shops can be found under members.

    May I also self-promote? I make Waldorf inspired butterfly wings, crowns, dolls, etc.:
    Please note that the deadline for orders is approaching – in case you want them before Christmas. . .

  3. This is my dream store… I want to fill a forest with her birdhouses and fairy statues. But I love giving her pendants to friends as gifts.

    This store has some really affordable, simple wood cutouts. We had a bit of a problem with the water-wave-set breaking with rough play, but otherwise (people, trees, dragons) the pieces have all become part of my children’s daily play.

  4. We are a Waldorf family and will possibly be doing Waldorf Homeschooling soon. We enjoy buying from local venders and handmade goods. Here are some of our favourites on etsy.

    SwansNest (our family shop – our oldest helps with each item as well)

    Mountain Hearth Handcrafts (Family friends and another Waldorf family)

    Nizhon Jewelry and Lapidary Design (A family friend and naturalist – she combines her Native American roots with modern influences in her pieces. Great gifts for that special someone in your life.)

    Angela Michelle Dolls and Miniatures

    Mystic Orb Wooden Jewelry

    I agree with looking into the teams as well. They can give you a combined effort towards common focus in there work. Don’t limit yourself to them though. You’ll find, once you click on individual shops, that the individuals have a great sense of art and value others outside the Waldorf realm. Like myself, I’m not a doll maker or a painter but I am greatly influence by Rudolph Steiner’s architecture and by the beautiful and serene Waldorf community and I strive to reflect that in my pieces.

    Have fun on etsy everyone!

  5. What a wonderful post. I’ve had a great time looking at everyone’s favorites (and I’ve put a few things in my own wish list, too).

    We have a tiny, tiny etsy shop of our own:
    I love the play clips my husband made for our son…so much so that we opened this shop to share them with others. We only have a couple of sets left but hopefully he’ll be back in the garage soon to make more.

    I’ve bought unfinished trees and stacking toys from ClickityClack. Much less expensive than the pre-finished ones we see in catalogs, plus I get to do the fun part (painting and beeswax finish).

  6. Hi Carrie,

    What a great idea, can’t wait to go looking through all the links. I don’t think I’m double linking here, I couldn’t see this link already, but we just ordered some beautiful gifts for our daughter on behalf of a relative from

    All Blessings for a wonderful Festive Season and an abundantly beautiful 2012 xxx

  7. Wow! So many shops to look at…

    My favorite right now is in Lithuania (free shipping!). She handsews wonderful things (stockings, buntings, bags, etc) — and also does custom orders (right now she is working on a hanging letter-writing station for my youngest):

    For European Waldorf (gorgeous wooden figures):

    Beautiful and creative stackers:

    Colorful and fun stackers:

    Fantastic and life-like felt figures:

    Natural toys and decor:

    Waldorf fantasy prints:

    just finished the most amazing doll for me. He is so beautiful. I am so touched to see the thought that went into him that I almost feel like I could cry. She is taking a break for the holidays now, but keep her in mind for later! She has a website as well.

    I pour our own but beeswax pillars, but have been ordering our tapers from
    Great pricing and really exceptional service!

  9. Hi all- can I promote myself- I don’t yet have an etsy shop, between homeschooling waldorf and running my business I haven’t gotten there yet but I make beautiful items from felted wool sweaters. My favorites are Hot Water Bottle covers-(sell the water bottles too!) potholders and wine sleeves. I also do things like scarves and mittens, fingerless gloves and ponchos. Everything is one-of-a-kind. You check out my stuff at or on Facebook at Woolen It Be Nice. I hope to get on Etsy in the near future.

  10. I am a new mama and crafter of many sorts. I have a had a tiny little jewelry business for a few years that now is focused mostly on Etsy- as me and my babe stay in our nest most of the time. I work with the healing colors and medicinal properties of gemstones to create naturally elegant & simple jewelry. Please visit me at
    Thanks so much for offering this opportunity to share our creations with each other. As an Etsian, even if you don’t buy anything, favoriting and adding people to your circle is a wonderful to promote, connect and inspire each other. Please stop by my shop and favorite that which you like.

    PS I love this blog– it is a wonderful resource as a new mama at home with my little magical being.

  11. Chris Willow is a lovely waldorfy mama who writes and sells on Etsy under the same name. She also contributes articles to Rhythm of the Home. She creates small wooden figurines – totally adorable – at reasonable prices, as well as little journals, story dice, etc. She lives in my town and I would love for you all to stop by her shop on Etsy to grab a sweet wooden critter for your advent calendar or stocking!

  12. LOVE this store! everyday there is something new and unique

    my kids adore their toy sets from this shop

    best play silks EVER.

    Only place I will purchase candles and beeswax type products from. great prices also

    this is my favourites list on my profile. It is always expanding and i think is filled with some beautiful things <3

  13. Etsy is THE BEST place to buy! I am constantly amazed at the variety of extremely talented artisans in the Etsy Marketplace. Why would you buy anywhere else? I have a millinery shop where I make hats and fascinators using traditional millinery techniques. Etsy is a great platform for milliners like me to showcase their work and inspire the next generation of hat makers! Please visit me!

    Thanks and see you in the shop!

  14. I used to be suggested this web site by means of my
    cousin. I’m not certain whether this post is written by means of him as no one else understand such specified approximately my problem. You’re wonderful!

    Thank you!
