Irish Etsy Shops - My Local Loves this Christmas
This week I'm sharing my favourite Irish Etsy accounts with you in the hopes of encouraging you to shop local and support smaller Irish businesses this Christmas :)...
I couldn't not cover this topic for My Local Loves as shopping on Etsy is the ultimate convenient way to support Irish businesses, especially those on a smaller scale. All you have to do is select 'Ireland' the 'shop location' filter option to ensure the shops you search are Irish. I have never had any issues using Etsy before, in fact the delivery is often a lot faster as most of the sellers tend to use An Post as their chosen form of delivery.
First up is fellow Kildare woman Aisling White's beautiful bohemian business, Croí Cróga. The translation for Croí Cróga is brave heart. Aisling believes in the power of our hearts and that we should all strive to live with a brave heart. Aisling makes different beautiful bohemian creations for your home. She has also started to co-host a virtual women's circle where she offers a safe space for women to share and support one another.
Here are some of her lovely creations that are available on her Etsy account.
The next account that I am a big fan girl for is that of NiallyPea's. Niall's creations reveal his deadly sense of humor which you can get a taste of through his IG account where he is always up for a chat and a laugh!
Here's a few of my faves from this Local Love of mine.
This next beautiful Galway jewellery store is one you need to check out for sure. For me, it was love at first sight and I'm sure it will be the same for you!
Introducing, Foxford Jewellery. Foxford Jewellery put a modern twist on beautiful Celtic classics such as the triquetra and the Claddagh. I don't think I could possibly choose just one version of their stylish Claddaghs, so here are some of the ones that really stand out for me 😍
These next beautifully crafted clocks made by creativeartclocks are definitely worth a mention. As you can see from Paul's 5 star reviews, his custom made pieces bring such joy to his customers. Paul has some ready made pieces either if you are not after a custom made piece.
Here is a selection of his stunning creations from County Wicklow.
This next shop brings a little bit of rural Connemara to your home via their unique creations. CONNEMARASHOP uses Connemara marble to create their crafty pieces. These could be a lovely present this Christmas for a loved one living abroad, enabling them to take back a little bit of home with them.
Here is a selection of what they have to offer on their Etsy store.
This Christmas, AnyCraicPrints has created some truly lol-able Christmas cards! It's been a tough old year on so many of us, so why not give someone a good laugh by sending them one of these cards from Dublin gal Danielle.
Danielle has some other gas cards available on her Etsy store too, as well as some prints.
Here are a few of my favourites.
Some other Irish Etsy stores that were recommended by my gal pals are RichardEDalton and TheNightDeerStudio. They are both Irish illustrators that create beautiful prints, both ready-made and customizable too.
Here are a few of their creations.
I hope you found this post helpful for some Irish Christmas inspo!
