Pop quiz, Madison. What’s better than shopping local? For 100 points: Shopping local from the comfort of your own home. Not only is it one of the best ways to support the local economy, but locally-crafted gifts tend to wow during the holidays (a big win in our book).
To kickstart your holiday shopping, we’ve rounded up 16 products we love from local Etsy shops — some of which hold the coveted Star Seller badge that’s given to sellers who consistently earn 5-star reviews, ship orders on time, and provide great customer service, aka less holiday stress for you.
