If you realized last week that you forgot to do some holiday shopping for a loved one, who happens to be entirely forgettable, we’ve got you covered. Here is a list of some fantastic Orlando-based and Orlando-themed designers and makers who have online shops on Etsy.com. We’ve sifted through all of the cheap Pulse-knockoff clothing and battered Walt Disney World keepsakes and come up with the following remarkable stores, just for you.
Did we miss any of your favorite shops? Post a link in the comments below so we can include them in our next roundup.
