There’s nothing I like more than online Christmas shopping, getting all my bits and bobs from the comfort of my sofa. This year I’m keeping my wrapping decoration to a minimum – brown paper but with ribbon and stickers – Etsy is the perfect place (it’s also where I bought loads of obscure pieces for my wedding – tiny grey and white chevron paper bags for confetti? Of course they had them).
But sometimes you just need to go into a store…online can be a bit bewildering if you don’t know what you’re looking for, especially with a huge marketplace like Etsy – you want someone to go in and do the edit for you and get a ‘feel’ for the store (myself and a friend talked about Etsy having a nice ‘aura’ the other day, we’re possibly a bit sad but I think you know what I mean).
