IMAGE VIA HELLO HAPPY PLANTS
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 local 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.
TRASHBOOKS – SHOP
Owned by: Moriah Russo
Sells: Lost books that have been rescued from obscurity and the landfill. Russo handpicks her “dispossessed lit” from piles on the curb, cleans them up, and resells them online.
ASHLEY BETH GRAPHIC – SHOP
Owned by: Ashley Rocco
Sells: Rocco specializes in design goodies like lapel pins, stickers, stationary, and gift wrapping. You may recognize her Love Orlando pin design as the one that we sell on tees in our shop at shop.bungalower.com.
CHEAP LUCK CO – SHOP
Owned by: Carolina Londono
Sells: Jewelry, hand-cut metal, and crystals for all your hipster-loving needs. Londono’s shop has some gorgeous photography too.
PRODUCTS THAT EXCITE – SHOP
Owned by: Lawton Connect
Sells: Limited edition, Orlando-inspired, print products like this iconography Orlando print or some cleverly designed posters using street names.
DO TELL CALLIGRAPHY – SHOP
Owned by: Margaret Beles
Sells: A variety of print products including tees, ornaments, drink tumblers, mugs, and beautiful art prints like this Floral Florida poster. We’re such big fans of Beles that we featured her work in our online shop last year.
BLOOM WOLF STUDIO – SHOP
Owned by: Betsy Garcia
Sells: Illustrated greeting cards and paper goods. Garcia isn’t just limited to Orlando though and has goodies for multiple cities and topics.
BRIGHT LIGHT PAPER – SHOP
Owned by: Elizabeth Farmer
Sells: Hand-painted greeting cards, paintings, and invitations. Farmer also does recipe cards too. We love her “taco + beer” card so much we had to put it in this roundup.
AMZNFX – SHOP
Owned by: Fernando Sosa
Sells: Bottle-opener rings like the Orlando Lion pictured, Heisenberg Buddha sculptures, Apple Watch bumpers, and Vladimir Putin butt plugs. Not pictured.
GO BIG TEES – SHOP

FABS AND FAVES – SHOP

Sells: Vintage and antique pieces from Elaine’s private collection. Elaine happens to be the mother of Mills 50 misfit, Jessical Pawli, who runs the ongoing Southern Fried Sunday series at Will’s Pub and oversees Outdoor Fringe at the Fringe Festival in Loch Haven Park.
Stickerbrand – SHOP
Owned by: Stickerbrand
Sells: Super-cool vinyl wall art decals like this theme park-inspired getup pictured. They design and print all of their own work here in Orlando and you can easily just apply it straight to your wall.
NEOGRANNY – SHOP
Owned by: Molly Reilly
Sells: Vintage-inspired oodcuts, fabrics, found photographs and more. The mermaid necklace caught our eye but be sure to look at her wall plaques and earrings too.
HELLO HAPPY PLANTS – SHOP
Owned by: Kelsey
Sells: Hand-sculptured air plant pots in the shape of urban artifacts. We’ve been fans of this artist since we stumbled over their tent at Grandma Party Bazaar. We hope they’ll have a whole storefront one day.
12 DEGREES WEST – SHOP
Owned by: Eliel Rosario
Sells: Handmade leather goods and accessories. We know they’re handmade because we often see Rosario hand-stitching and cutting his beautiful pieces at local coffee shops. His wallets sell like crazy but be sure to check out the leather tote bag.
