If you are interested in fashion one of the things you’re always searching for is unique pieces to make an outfit really standout. This doesn’t mean the article of clothing has to be flashy, just a cut above the rest. It should have something that says I’m different, I’m one-of-a-kind, I’m unique. Usually this can be achieved through handmade items.

Looking for these pieces on a shopping trip can be a long and often fruitless endeavor. Or going to boutiques can mean a large chunk of your wallet gets left behind with a small purchase. Why not find these sought-after items from the comfort of your home or office and have them delivered to your door step, all at an affordable price?

Enter Etsy.com! This online portal is the home for all things handmade. You can buy coin purses, wall art, jewelry, baby blankets, candles, soap… basically if you can name it and it can be made by hand you’re going to find it on the site.

The best part is most of the items are unlike anything you’ll find in a basic department store. They are truly one-of-a-kind. Some of my favorites include:

Leather Credit Card Holder


Renaissance Bib Collar Necklace


The Poppy Necklace


Denim Skirt with Bow


iPod Padded Case


Big Red Flower Bomb Purse


Sunset Junction Cuff


Brown Print Headband from Vintage Necktie


Adult Size Apple Cap


If you are the crafty sort yourself, you can sell your goods on Etsy too. Or just log on to get ideas for your next DIY project.
