We all love finding new and unique things for our homes, but it cannot be denied that 2020 has been one of the most challenging years that we’ve known collectively as shoppers for a long time. However, it’s also been evident during this time, that our enthusiasm for our homes, gardens, creative visions and style cannot be hampered by even a worldwide pandemic.
Thankfully, despite the challenges this year has brought with it, our need to personalise and be creative with the most important parts of our lives is still wonderfully catered for by the growing number of independent creatives and makers out there, who all share a passion for all things lifestyle, interiors and fashion.
Etsy is a global marketplace for unique and creative goods where these creatives and makers can sell their wares securely and safely. It’s home to a universe of special, extraordinary items, from unique handcrafted pieces to vintage treasures, and when shoppers buy from Etsy, they’re directly supporting people in local communities worldwide. When making shopping decisions, it’s always nice to buy something special, something that has a story, and in a time of increasing automation, it’s good to know that it’s Etsy’s mission to keep human connection at the heart of commerce.
That’s why they built an online marketplace where creativity lives and thrives, connecting a community of Etsy sellers with buyers all over the world who are looking for an alternative ‘special something’ with an individual touch.
For these reasons, I’m especially delighted to help spread the word about The Etsy Design Awards – also known as the #TheEtsies, which shines a spotlight on their global community of entrepreneurs, showcasing the best of Etsy across multiple categories.
This year’s main judges include Drew Barrymore and Etsy’s Trend Expert, Dayna Isom Johnson. However, for the first time this year, Etsy will also launch its People’s Choice Award allowing shoppers to vote for their favourite Etsy Design Awards (EDA) finalist (compromising of 100 finalists from across the globe) in several key categories.
Excitingly, Etsy has just released this year’s finalists in the awards. 100 amazing items across 10 categories. It’s been such fun looking through the entrants, and today I’m going to showcase a selection of the finalists that caught my eye.
The best bit is that not only can you can shop all of this year’s finalists too by clicking on the items that you like, but you can also become involved in ‘The People’s Choice Award’ and vote for your favourite finalist by going to [https://tidd.ly/2EkXr9W] to favourite your preferred finalist and tag a friend in the comments on my Instagram page ‘here’ to have a chance to win a $250 Gift card.
