Buying bits of Buffalo

Rainbow scarf for sale on Etsy

We’re all about shopping locally here at Buffalo.com—I mean, have you visited ShopBuffalo before?—but I have to admit it’s becoming somewhat of an obsession for me, a collector of eclectic vintage and handmade housewares.

Feeding my addiction is popular shopping site Etsy, an internet storefront that allows independent sellers to offer their handmade and vintage goods to the world. Appealing as it already is, it gets better if you modify your search to include only items sold by local sellers, allowing buyers to keep dollars in the neighborhood.

I’m sure this isn’t news to everyone, but for anyone who’s never used Etsy in this way, see what the locals have to offer. Here are a few of my favorites:
