I love shopping Etsy. So unique. Reasonably priced. And it supports our neighbors. I previously furnished my two-year-old Jack’s big boy room and the new baby nursery with Etsy finds, but now my addiction has turned to clothing, boots and hats. An obvious reaction to Michigan’s upcoming bitter season. I’m a proud supporter of Michigan things, so I decided to browse Michigan Etsy for some kid items I need. Here’s a few of the favorite children shops I found:
Trendy Baby, Port Huron, Mich.
Jack hates to wear his socks around the house. Don’t blame him. I’m not a fan either. Usually the two of us spend most days toting around in our bare feet. But the crispy weather is freezing Jack’s tiny two-year-old toes. Comfortable house shoes are a must. I discovered these adorable, trendy, multi-patterned soft-soled shoes made in the Mitt. No slip, machine wash booties. Perfect.
The Sewing Fool, Lake Orion, Mich.
“Unique and Cool T-Shirts” is how this shop owner describes her products. From dinosaur silhouettes to trains, these tees for boys live up to their description.
Pickletoes Couture, Port Huron, Mich.
A top pick for me. In fact, purchased a crocheted baby hat today. Planning to buy the matches boots very soon. Features super trendy crocheted hats and scrunched boots. Also love her patterns and prints.
Rosebud Boutique and Company, Plymouth, Mich.
Features crocheted baby blankets, clothing and accessories. My absolute preferred are the itsy-bitsy baby boots. Cute baby gift idea too.
Tutu LaRue Couture, Milford, Mich.
I support Michigan, but I also support former classmates. I’ve known the shop owner/mother of two since high school and she's a peach - pretty creative too. I've already made plans to order one of her unique tulle & satin-ribboned tutus very soon. Each tutu is made special-to-order and for all ages. Super special. Maybe a Chrismas gift?
Good Little Things, Grand Rapids, Mich.
Absolutely, hands down one of my favorites. The most unique shoes and boots custom made for babies and children. Unfortunately for us, she’s not taking orders for three months. Sigh. One day my little girl will own the most stylish, custom-made boots ever.
Coffee Lady, Utica, Mich.
Items are eco-friendly and made from new or recycled materials. Products include multi-colored wool leg warmers, trendy hats, wool sweaters, sweet felt boots and an overabundance of stylish hats.
Modern Totz, Novi, Mich.
The Baby & Children’s Boutique offers hip, fun and unique clothing and accessories for babies and children. Bonus, there are items for parents too!
Left Right, Holland, Mich.
Anyone with little boys knows how hard it is to find cute clothes for them. The selections are limited, t-shirt or polo. This Etsy shop has organic baby and toddler clothing – hats, bibs, bodysuits, gift sets – and uniquely modern tees for boys.
Giggle Rainbow, Livonia, Mich.
Accessories for all ages, but my favorite are the leg warmers. Made for babies, toddlers and kids.
Cyberoptix Tie Lab, Detroit, Mich.
“Ties that don’t suck.” Hand, silk-screened neckties, bow ties and scarves for kids and their dads. Seriously, these ties are chic.
Please share if you shop any of the above, I'd love to hear about your experience. Also, please share in the comments below any Michigan kid shops I may have missed. Stay close for posts about specific shops and my ultimate all-time Etsy favs.
