If you’re anything like me, you may or may not have an unhealthy relationship with Etsy. I love Etsy because it’s all about small, home based businesses that make handmade products with love. But until recently, I didn’t realize how many incredibly unique and talented Etsy shop owners we have right here in Rochester, Minnesota!
I’m all about supporting my community and shopping small so I’ve compiled a short list of some of my favorite Etsy Shops that are based in Rochester!
Here are some of my favorites.
1. SweetieOops – Kelli’s style is a marriage of folksy and vintage; and it’s irresistible.
2. Aquila Watercolor – Jessica is one incredibly talented young lady and she loves dogs just as much as I do! Win-win! I was lucky enough to receive a watercolor painting of our Lab Bella from Jessica’s shop and I still can’t believe how much of her personality comes through the painting!
3. Honeybunch Boutique – This shop’s name is no joke. Both Jana and her creations are beyond sweet. Jana even offers free delivery/pick-ups in Rochester! All you need to do is enter the CODE: ROCHESTERMN when you checkout, leave her a message to let her know if you’d like it delivered or picked up, and BAM!
4. Anna Rae Invitations – Natalie has a rare talent. She has the ability to create beautiful stationery in many, many different styles to suit any occasion.
Pro Tip: Some of the shop owners may offer free delivery or pick up so make sure you check with them before ordering and you may be able to save some coin on shipping costs!
There you have it. What better reason to shop local than to snag adorable, handmade items for your loved ones while supporting your fellow neighbors!? Everyone wins here.
