STFU, Conservatives
Buy your gifts here: Tumblr-approved Etsy shops and other crafters

Earlier I mentioned that this year, I want to buy more of my gifts from small businesses and Etsy sellers instead of mega-corps. I asked my crafty readers to send me links to their or their friends’ online shops/Etsy stores so I could make a list. Here’s the list!

If you like sci-fi romance novels, get my friend’s eBook here!

If you’re looking for some other book porn, here’s my list of better books than 50 Shades of Grey

One reader wrote: “In addition to supporting the crafters on Etsy, I’d like to suggest browsing the artisans of Novica as well. Novica is a partnership between National Geographic and artisans the world over so you can buy unique wares directly from the talented people who make them and not the people who take advantage of them. It supports their independence and the economic stability of their communities.”

Need a custom item? Check out (It stands for “U Need It I Make It”.) It’s like when Etsy had the Alchemy section. From their website: “simply post a new project request with a description of the item you want. Our artists will bid on your project with their estimates and you will have the option of choosing which artist you would like to work with.”

Another option is GoodKarma, which offers sustainable, functional handmade items for the home.
