Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops
We've updated the list: To view 2013's Top 50 Etsy Baby Shops, click here!
Once again, we took on the overwhelming task of narrowing down our 50 favorite Etsy shops for the 18-months-and-under crowd — hunting for the most inventive toys, original outfits, and even our favorite vintage finds. By tapping into the artistic, entrepreneurial spirit booming in this creative community, we found that some of the most dedicated, industrious shop owners direct their numerous talents into the baby world — typically because they themselves are parents and want the best for their own kids. (Luckily, we can reap the benefits of their ingenuity.)
Considering that there are so many talented artisans on Etsy, we deliberately didn’t repeat any Etsy shops from last year — so check back to our Best Etsy Shops of 2011 (as well as our Top 50 Etsy Moms of 2012) for more of our favorites.
Of course, it’s impossible to recognize every single shop, so nominate your favorites, vote for the best, and continue to support the handmade community. — Michelle Horton

Love Mae’s Rankings
About this shop: If you prefer a more vintage and classic aesthetic, these removable wall decals will add softness to your baby’s nursery. Besides looking beautiful, they can be repositioned over and over – scrunched up, smoothed out, and even washed – without damaging your walls. To top if off, these decals are non-toxic and biodegradable.
About these sellers: These Australian-based designers credit themselves with the very first reusable fabric wall decals, which they launched on Etsy back in 2009. They’ve since expanded to make organic bedding and even dinnerware, which you can find on their site, Love Mae. No matter what they’re designing, Peta and Emily are inspired by shapes, colors, and moments in life – moments where you recognize the beauty in little things.
Signature Item: Wall Stickers Paper Doll, $40-70
