Like Anthro, but even rarer

I am on an Etsy kick lately. As a kid my Mom was a crafter…she would make snowflakes in the winter, baby blocks, hair ruffles…tons and tons of things. She is a weaver and a sewer and generally crafty. Me? Not so much. Oh sure I tried it all for awhile. I knitted as a 5-year-old and played with Fimo at 11. But I don’t have the attention span for it. Even now I can only occasionally break out the charcoals and pastels. I have total NYC syndrome. Constant sensory overload needed!

Cruising around Etsy requires patience. Lots of lots of stubborn determination will reveal some truly amazing things. Today I thought it would be nice to feature some bags that could easily be sold at Anthropologie. They fit into the same zeitgeist in my opinion. Feel free to share any of your favorite contributors in the comments. Enjoy, and tell ’em Roxy sent ya!

    It's funny that you have this post…I have several of these sellers on my Etsy favorites list. I like the bags from peskycatdesigns. I actually own a bag from pacoandlupe. It's the print you featured in the post but a different style.

    I luv the owl tote. I've been looking for a reusable tote to use with an owl on it. And I luv the ghost tree clutch. Very pretty.

    I found this purse by Dalinda on someone else's blog. I think it is cute and reasonably priced. I also bought cute felted mittens from her. I have found some cute girls clothes too. Roxy's right though, it takes a lot of patience to look through all the items on Etsy. Another market is 1000 Markets. It is not as big so it is easier to look through. The shop I like is justdots. Great post. You picked some fab bags.
