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.

Penny People Prints | Lindsay Stephenson
The Shop: A small, high-quality selection of alphabet prints done right through perfect colorways, pretty personalization and modern typography that will still look fresh in baby’s future dorm room. Add your child’s name and choose from seven color palettes for the perfectly coordinated nursery accent. We also love the sweet number print for older little ones learning to count.
The Seller: Inspired by the handwritten letters she received as a little girl from her grandmother, printmaker Lindsay created Penny People in 2004 from her hometown of Toronto, Canada. She’s since grown her clientele to include customers around the world.
Signature Item: Custom alphabet print, $25
