To say I’m excited is an understatement. Last night I went down a rabbit hole and I couldn’t be more in love with what I discovered.

Did you know you can search for gifts on Etsy by location!?  *MIND BLOWN*

Here’s what lead me to this amazing discovering…

Last night I was on the hunt for a really cute gift for my new niece. I found one I LOVED. I was seconds away from ordering when I noticed, “woah, this isn’t going to be here until after xmas!” and then, “Wait, what? This is coming from Russia?”. *Insert major sad face*

I thought to myself how much I wish I could search for something in the US and started looking around. I saw there was a filter button and I went to explore. To my surprise, there was a choice to pick Made in the United States. SCORE! But here’s the more exciting thing…

Below the US option is a custom field to choose your own location. So I tried searching for gifts in Wisconsin. IT WORKED… Then I wondered if I could get even more specific and filter for sellers in Madison, WI and that worked too!

I was insanely excited and given that it was after 11pm, I figured I should probably not message everyone I know right now. I can probably wait until the morning to share my excitement. After a couple of hours laying in bed and finding amazing things on Etsy, I’m here to tell you, it’s an amazing discovery! And here we are!

I am so elated to share what I found. I thought it would be a perfect post to share how we all could shop locally while also shopping online this year. Both very important in the 2020 climate!

I’m going to walk you through some of my favorite finds and hope they inspire some of your own holiday shopping. As an added bonus, at the end of this post, I will show you how you can shop local online too!
