Handmade Shops We're Crushing On
*This post contains external links to different shops.
Indie, sustainable, quality ... We're loving the diversity and choices that the Internet and artisans all over the world are providing us with. Supporting small, independent businesses like ours is one of our goals as a family, so we made a list of our favorite stores that we keep visiting over and over, to buy or just drool over the awesome stuff they have (LOL!)
Elizabeth from Ivie Baby is a busy, busy lady! Her current wait time is 4 weeks + shipping and totally worth it. Very modern, chic and stylish - and now that I'm having a baby soon I can't stop going through her selection, trying to narrow down what I'm putting on my baby registry.

This lovely Canadian store is getting restocked often (check her Instagram for restocking news). So if you visit her store and everything says "sold out" just be a little patient because the wait is definitely worth it! I love that she uses soothing colors and beautiful patterns that are both stylish and fun.
If I'm not mistaken, she uses organic fabrics mostly
We have purchased some prints from this shop and they truly brighten our studio! Inspiring and fun prints from the lovely visual developer/designer that worked on films like Wreck It Ralph, Big Hero 6 and more.
She's from Barcelona, Spain but works at Disney Animation Studios - so talented and her shop shows it!
This shop has greeting cards, home decor items and lots of prints that will give your walls that extra oomph! Jenn's mid-century modern vibe is to die for and she's constantly adding new fabrics for pre-order as well.
What we love so much from this shop is that her clothes are quality and that the owner prints/stamps the design on the fabric herself! We've tried it before and let us assure you that it's not as easy as it seems. You'll love the chic looks and earthy tones from these comfy clothes.

We are so in love with all of her stuff! It's cuteness overload and she covers pretty much everything (fabrics, decor, t-shirts, baby stuff and most importantly: handbags!) So fun and different from what you see in brick and mortar stores. Her items are unique, kid and adult friendly, and they bring a smile to your face. Pure awesomeness!
That's it for this round of handmade shops that we're crushing on. We're working on more lists, please feel free to send your suggestions on catergories or shops we should check out. Feel free to share :)
