I've always loved the idea of the Etsy marketplace, but I really became obsessed with the website last year. It was the perfect place to brainstorm ideas and pick up the finishing touches for my wedding – and now that Christmas is around the corner, I'm turning to Etsy for most of my gifts and decorations.
And just to make things even better, their Cyber Week Sales launched overnight! These are specific products and sometimes entire sellers' inventories for up to 60% off. Supplies are limited, and these deals will only run for, well, the next week. So if you spot something you absolutely need to have, you should probably act fast!
I could probably spend the entire day just sifting through all these sale items, but I'll try to keep things brief here. I know you've got shopping to do, and there are some things you just have to see for yourself.
Right away, this My First Chalkboard from Ottawa-based seller Chalkboard Chique caught my eye. It has a fill-in-the-blanks design, so you can use it for just about anything, whether that's your kiddo's first birthday, day of school, soccer game, haircut, doctor's appointment or time flying on a plane. You can choose between a sign that read "I am ____ months old" or "I am ____ years old." Either way, it will only cost you $36 shipped from $45. Plus, you can add a 10-pack of sharpened white chalk to your order for $4.
To keep things going for the kids, I also stumbled across a pretty incredible gift idea. There's an American Etsy seller that makes Crayon Name Sets. They're basically letter-shaped crayons that spell out your child's name (up to $14 letters). Prices vary based on how many characters you buy, but sets now start at $22.04!
I know I've talked about these Custom Rubber Address Stamps from The Paper Shoppe before, but they really are pretty awesome – especially if you still love sending snail mail. I just received mine a few weeks ago, and I'm obsessed. You can order your personalized stamp for 20% off, including this one for $33.12 from $41.41.
Finally, no Cyber Week Sales would be complete without something as goofy and meta as this women's graphic Black Friday Raglan Shirt. It reads "I'm only a morning person on Black Friday," and ain't that the truth! You can choose between sizes XS through 2XL, and there are about a dozen different colours in stock.
