22 best gifts from local Charlotte Etsy shops

via Instagram

If you want to support local without leaving your couch, Etsy is a good online alternative to brick and mortar stores. Your dollars stay with local creators but you enjoy all the ease of one-click shopping.

To explore local Charlotte Etsy shops yourself, just narrow your search by location. You’ll find this in the left side bar after entering a phrase in the main search bar.

Even after narrowing your search to Charlotte-only shops, navigating Etsy’s inventory can still be a bit overwhelming so I’ve curated a list of some of my favorite items from local shop owners. (See my 2016 list here.) Happy shopping.
