Etsy is holding a contest to pick web readers' favourite choices of handmade children's items in seven different categories: furniture, toys, eco-friendly, art, home decor, clothes and accessories. All are made for children by independent designers. Etsy is that wonderful website that features all things handmade to buy and sell by artists and artisans. Everyone can vote for their favourite items and win a chance to go on an Etsy shopping spree--now that's a fun prize.
Yours truly is the judge for the eco-friendly category (no hints on my choice). And what a delightful selection there is. We have already written about Sam, the mischievous stuffed toy for little boys. A big fat lion made out of vintage fabrics will be a jungle friend for your little one. With autumn coming all too soon, there is a sweet selection of hats for the girls. The forest green hat out of felted wool with a flower stitched on is a real cutie. As is the hairband made with eco-spun felt and a vintage button. But keep an eye out for the other categories too: a vintage chair with a handwoven seat and a charming little rocking chair with painted flowers. Vote before September 8, 2008. :: Etsy
