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: Ruby Love’s modern memory books come in over 120 covers and 17 color schemes – from trendy stripes to classic florals. And each 9″ x 8″ book includes 52 custom-designed pages (like a family tree, “this day in history,” and milestones), plus 20 blank acid-free pages for photos, scrapbooking or journaling. You can even purchase additional page packs ($3 to $12) to include more memories like adoption, baptism, or the toddler years.
About these sellers: Bored of the cheesy, generic baby books that didn’t reflect her modern aesthetic, this graphic designer took matters into her own hands – creating baby books for her own two kids and almost 20,000 others. Julie now has one of the most popular children’s shops on Etsy because she simply gave moms a better way to record memories and milestones.
