the third time is the charm.

by ali hoffman

For our third Etsy installment, we debated whether or not to adhere to a theme.

We discussed a futuristic motif (in honor of the forthcoming New Year), considered an all-things-gold story, and even thought about compiling a bunch of party dresses.

In the end though, we stuck with what works: This month's favorite finds.

Ironically, after selecting our top picks, we realized our roundup accidentally followed a theme... well, almost.

Five of the six stores we nominated are based in Canada. How very random? But true.

Check out our latest, and possibly greatest, wish list below!
