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

About this shop: The most frustrating part of shopping for baby bedding is that you frequently pay a lot of money for things you don’t always want, like a diaper caddy or even baby bumpers. You can’t pick and choose a fitted sheet here, a crib skirt there – unless you’re shopping through Modified Tot. They have hundreds of different fabric options (organized into complementary sets) that you can mix and match, and then you have complete creative control over how much and what you buy. When we say there’s something for everyone, we really mean it. You’ll find everything from modern chevron to girly florals, in as many color palettes as you can imagine.
About this seller: After months of searching for modern, funky, customizable bedding during her pregnancy, Holly ordered a bunch of fabric and got to sewing – and she didn’t want to stop. So here she is, ready and willing to help you design whatever cooler-than-average bedding you can dream up.
Signature Item: Modern Paper Dolls Crib Set, $285 (customizable)
