Baby’s Dreamworld on Etsy

When you’re looking for the ultra-handmade-super-special-totally-personalized shopping experience, head to “the world’s handmade marketplace.”

Sometimes a gift giver is just stumped. Or they’ve shopped in circles, with no special item to show for it. Or they’re looking for a little something they can’t yet describe.

They may want to give Etsy a try.

We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.

Where local meets global. Etsy is a global online marketplace where very specialized small businesses can make their mark on the economy. The company says its mission is “to empower people to change the way the global economy works.” Totally tapped into the value of shopping local, the artisan virtual storefronts –and the customers who shop them- appreciate pride of authorship and a sense of place as much as price and convenience.

Ultimate shower gift. Linda’s lovely Baby’s Dreamworld is a fine example. Opened in September, she makes beautiful rhinestone baby shoes and baby accessories using sparkly Swarovski crystals, ribbon and other materials. Perfect for baptisms, christenings, weddings and other special occasions, “Most of my items can be customized for your liking and needs,” Linda says. “If you need a certain item in a different size or color, just send me an email and I would be happy to provide it for you.” Aunties would love to spoil little nieces with these stylish finds.

Florida-based Baby’s Dreamworld is just one of the delicious delights waiting to be discovered on Etsy. With very personalized customer service and special one-of-a-kind offerings, you may find just what you’re looking for … right at your fingertips!

After all … every little girl is someone’s princess!!

Cute kids shoe company Livie & Luca débuts the newest addition for fall: the Just Born collection of shoes for sizes 0-6 to 18-24 months.

Featuring soft leather uppers with a recycled rubber and suede hybrid sole, these baby shoes are ideal for indoor and outdoor adventures. Find the company’s popular classic styles in these soft flexible shoes, including the London, Holland and Woodland.

Livie & Luca is also debuting their fall/winter collection for children in sizes 4 to 13, featuring the new cadet boots and ruche Mary Janes. Each style features Livie & Luca’s trademark attention to darling details, including animated elephants, rainbow buttons, blossoming flowers and chirping birds.

Livie & Luca was created in 2005 by three moms seeking modern and funky shoes that were also lightweight and flexible for active children. Dedicated to giving back, the company has partnered with Art for Humanity to donate gently-worn shoes to children in Honduras. As they have since the beginning, Livie & Luca donates 10 percent of their online sales to rotating charities.
