Shop on Etsy & #StandWithSmall

Posted on April 6, 2020 by

Etsy has started a new #StandWithSmall campaign to support their sellers since small businesses need our support more than ever. They asked me to share some of my favourite shops and it was perfect timing as I’ve been keeping a list of shops I’ve rediscovered through updating our archives. All these artists and makers were originally featured on SCK back in 2008-2012 and it’s been so delightful to find them still open and making super cute new things.

At time of writing, all these shops are open but there may be delays and restrictions with shipping. Please favourite shops and products for later if you can’t buy now.

handmade kawaii narwhal figure

Bunny With A Toolbelt (USA) create fun handmade sculptures with so much personality. There’s loads of different animals and birds plus holiday themes and more. I especially love this narwhal with rainbow horn but you really need to have a browse yourself as there’s so many to choose from.

handmade kawaii crochet

It’s been 9 years since I first stumbled across SuAmi (Vietnam) and I still can’t get over how they can create such tiny cuteness in crochet! This mini mushroom is just 12mm high and comes with a tiny turtle friend too. This is another store with pages and pages of amazing things so do have a look.

kawaii cat art

I’ve enjoyed the cute art of KittyCassandra (USA) since the Shana Logic days and you can still buy prints of those classic cat paintings plus lots of new stuff. This House Cat print would be perfect for our new stay at home lives.

kawaii cat pins

Everyone can find their favourite cat at QuirkyCreationsAM (UK). These kitties are available as brooches and necklaces and there’s even a custom option. Check out the cute biscuits too.

handmade kawaii milk carton pins

Hanaletters (Romania) has a really sweet style that stands out from other hand-sewn felt brooches. I love these happy milk cartons but you’ll also find food, animals and girls wearing fun hats.

kawaii boombox necklace

Peskimo (UK) have a very bright, colourful and retro style that never fails to cheer me up. This boombox necklace would add some colour to any outfit and I love all the pandas too.

handmade kawaii plush

Bambaks (Poland) are happy little handmade creatures that come in all shapes and sizes. I’m a big fan of Chris there in the glasses and bowtie.

kawaii koala planter crochet pattern

HELLO Happy (USA) have been creating kawaii crochet patterns for a long time but I had never seen their planters! It’s such a fun idea, whether you choose a koala, alpaca or sloth. They’re digital patterns too so no shipping required.

handmade kawaii plants

Can’t keep a plant alive? hitree (USA) have you covered with the cutest handmade felt plants. These tiny monstera plants would love to hang out on your desk and don’t mind if you forget about them for weeks. Thre’s lots more nature-themed goodies too.
