I'm truly obsessed with each pattern and all I can say is...I can't wait for more!

I'm a huge fan of Etsy and often shop for items for myself and for KM posts. I love the community aspect of Etsy, but I do wish the search tool had more advanced features.  

To make up for it, I try to take advantage of the features they do offer, like the favorites tab. You can easily favorite items and shops, which is something I do frequently to keep track of places I enjoy browsing. It's definitely a must! Etsy also has a feature called circles that lets you keep tabs on your friends or people you like. You can stalk their favorites and see what they've been up to.  

Here's a list of some of favorite shops:

Decor:
Element Ceramics  |  Jill Rosenwald  |  Tilly | Maison  |  Up In The Air Somewhere  |  Cutting Edge Stencils  

Art:
Eastwitching  |  Kari Herer  |  Leigh Viner  |  Annechovie  |  The Pink Pagoda  |  Driftwood Interiors  |  Emma Kisstina  |  Berkley Illustration  |  Samantha Fench

Vintage:
High Street Market  |  Green Zebre Home  |  The Gilded Tassel  |  Duchess Fare  |  Fabulous Mess  |  Estate Eclectic  |  The Gilded Zebra  |  Tweaked Home  |  LIV Vintage

Thanks so much for your question Sara and good luck searching on Etsy!  

xo, Kelly

P.S. Since there are soooo many great Etsy shops, I'm going to highlight some of my favorite fashion-related haunts tomorrow.....don't miss it!
