Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
Looking for one-of-a-kind nursery d'cor? Newborn outfits not sewn in a factory? Baby gear that doesn't cost a precious chunk of your little one's fledgling college fund? Look to Etsy.com. As we discovered when we compiled Babble's Top 50 Etsy Moms list, the online craft cooperative is a hive of industrious, creative folks - including legions of moms. We also noticed how many Etsy sellers offer amazing items for babies, and how far away their gorgeous wares are from the impersonal, assembly-line infant products most of us are used to. We decided these shops serve the 18-months-and-under crowd so well that they deserve a list of their own.
As the co-founder of DIY site PrudentBaby, a blogger for Babble's Family Style blog and a longtime Etsy shopper, I've visited - and loved - hundreds of Etsy's beautiful baby boutiques. So while I was absolutely thrilled when Babble asked me to do this list, choosing the 50 best of the best was a challenge. Welcome to Babble's roundup of the Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, purveyors of some of the most beautiful, most useful, most lovingly made baby goods around.
And if we did leave your favorite shop off the list, we hope you'll nominate it yourself.

Freckletree | Joy Martin-Malone
The Shop: We adore the cashmere snuggle bunnies and “a series of unfortunate owls” softies, but the main attraction here is the signature Hoot Hats. Upcycled from vintage sweaters, blankets and scarves, these toasty caps will keep your little one warm all year long.
The Seller: Joy is a crafter, blogger and mother of twin girls in Charlotte, NC. Her motto, “Buy handmade. By my hands” reveals the wit that makes her creations and her blog, freckletree, so captivating.
Signature Item: Brown and pink owl hat, $20
