Regional Etsy: Hamilton Ontario

I found myself recently coming across old & new favourite Etsy shops, never realizing that all of them are from one place in this big old world: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. On its own right, that's kind of small-worldish, right? But the fact that Hamilton is only a couple of hours away from where I live made it even smaller!

I decided it was a perfect segue into starting a new regular segment on Buttercupped: Regional Etsy!
This week's Focus is on: Hamilton, Ontario

Sweet vintage finds focusing on clothes, accessories & decor!

Comfy & oh so pretty handmade shirts and dresses!

Handmade hair adornments that will make you smile!

Seriously stylish vintage clothing & accessories!

Delightfully retro knitwear (I love how she names each design after an Ontario town)!

I hope you enjoyed this first installment of Regional Etsy!
Hamilton, Ontario is obviously filled with talented folk (and excellent vintage hunters, too!). I may just have to make a road trip there one day.

  4. Elycia - I love my Yarn Over Movement beret & ascot (wore them nearly every day since getting them for Christmas last year).
    Carlijean - I would want to wear that peach hat to Paris (if I were going to Paris)
    Annabelle Marie - thank you! I can't wait to do more Regional ♥ spotlights :)

  5. I just adore that pastel striped sundress! I can just imagine me down at the St Kilda Sea Baths in the 50s (or even the 80s with those colours!) swanning around and feeling very pleased with myself! It's a bit like a rainbow Paddle Pop that you can wear - fabulous x
