Find Handcrafted Ardmore Gifts on Etsy

Find some Lower Merion Etsy sellers with jewelry, locally-themed T-shirts, and other handcrafted goods you can buy in time for the holidays.

We all know the advantages of shopping locally: It's an investment in your community, an important way to keep money local during trying economic times, and a way to lessen your carbon footprint. But, what if you prefer to do your shopping from the sofa?

Never fear: there are still ways to shop close to home without actually leaving home. 

Etsy, a website for vintage and handmade wares, is a great resource for the online shopper. The site has sellers from all over the world, but includes an Etsy Local page where you can select your location and only shop close to home.

Check out the lists below for jewelry, scarves, art, clothing and other holiday gift ideas—all made in Lower Merion.

To thank the Patch for listing Kaleidoscope Galaxy as a local artist, I would like to extend a holiday discount to the the Mainline Community. (Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Rosemont, Wynnewood, Narberth, Merion and Bala Cynwyd). When completing your purchase at http:// www.kaleidoscopegalaxy.com or www.stainedglassgalaxy.com enter the coupon code "Patch". The coupon code is good for 10% off of purchases of $100 or more now through January 1, 2013. Happy Holidays to everyone from Kaleidoscope Galaxy

I've picked up a few kaleidoscopes from Meredith (KaleidoscopeGalaxy) over the years and each one was unique and so well done. They make great and long-lasting gifts for the "hard to buy for". Bravo!
