I’m not artsy. I don’t paint, sew, or make cute gifts for friends. So when I stumbled onto Etsy.com, I was an instant fan. And now that I’m at the Pear Bureau, a new world of pears has opened up to me – largely thanks to Etsy!
Pear swag on Etsy is cute – we’re not talking chintzy ceramic pears or gaudy kitchen towels. I’m starting a wish list now! Here are some of my most recent favorites:
Reusable Sandwich Bag (by Zummi): This perky, punchy sandwich bag is not only eco-friendly, it’s cute! I’d be happy showing this bag off in the office lunchroom or filling it with makeup for a weekend trip.
Pear Coasters (by Crochele): These cozy coasters would look great on my coffee table or next to my keyboard. They’re locally made right here in Portland, OR, and they can be purchased in sets of 4, 5 or 6!
Anjou Milk Soap (by bittertundra): I can already imagine the scent of this delicate soap. If it’s anything like an Anjou pear, it’s gotta be good. I’d love to give this soap as a housewarming gift or a thank you to friends who host me when I visit.
That’s just a sampling of the fun, unique things to be found on Etsy. Happy shopping!
