Is it ethical?
Everything sold on Etsy is supposed to be vintage or crafted. To be honest it’s difficult to find specific information about particular sellers but according to Etsy’s policy, we’re good.
What I’ve bought
If there’s something you can’t find in your usual places, then Etsy is a good place to look. I love buying special birthday gifts for my family and jewelry for myself and on here. The nice thing about the jewelry is that you can find interesting pieces made from real gold and gold plate which is great for sensitive skin. Here are some items I’ve purchased myself.
I like either really chunky gold earrings or minimalist simple style that goes with everything and always gold or gold plated.
I recently bought a pair of these Mexican huaraches after being unable to find sandals locally – can’t wait for them to arrive!
Etsy offers huge choice whatever your style.
