I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far.
Now that November is here I know that lots of you are starting to do your Christmas shopping so I have decided to put together a series of gift guides to help you find the perfect gift. Where better to look for amazing sellers for my blog post than my local Etsy team, the Dorset Team?!
I love buying from independent sellers and even more so when they are local sellers too!
All of these sellers will be exhibiting their work at the Dorset Team Christmas Fair this year. I am heading there to do my Christmas shopping so if you are local please do come along and if you are not, please check out these Etsy sellers' amazing Etsy shops to purchase online.
They are all mini works of art. Lucy's shop is hugely popular so she releases her dolls in batches and they often sell out within a few hours.
Top tip: Follow Lucy on social media by searching The Cat in the Shoe to see when she will be releasing the next batch of beautiful dolls.
Find Lucy's Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/thecatintheshoe
If you are local to Dorset, Lucy will also be bringing her dolls along to the Dorset Team Christmas Fair in Wimborne on the 5th December. This provides a rare opportunity to see a large range of Lucy's dolls and purchase dolls that are super hard to get your hands on online!
Know someone who loves items from days gone by?!
This art deco style hair comb would add a touch of vintage glamour to an outfit.
Find Amy's Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DaydreamBridal
or visit her stall at the Christmas Fair in Dorset
These best friends from Dorset have a superb eye for colour and always have an eye catching stall.
This piece would make a fantastic gift for someone who is difficult to buy as they have everything....I am pretty sure they won't have an embroidered button art hoop in their collection ;) !
Find their Etsy shop Studio Pickles here https://www.etsy.com/shop/studiopickles or come and have a browse at their stall at the Christmas Fair if you are local
The ring was made by Katherine from Wildkat Jewellery who is based in Bournemouth, Dorset.
Katherine also makes beautiful wrap bracelets and her shop is well worth a browse!
You can find Katherine's Etsy shop or come and meet Katherine in person and browse her full range by coming to the Dorset Team Christmas Fair in Wimborne on the 5th December
Hope you enjoyed this gift guide and it has given you some gift ideas for those who are a little more tricky to buy for! Please do take a browse in the shops of these amazing makers and hope to see some of you at the Dorset Team Christmas Fair!
Thanks for reading
