Happy holidays, second handers! I have missed you all in my blogging absence- but alas, I am back, just in time for the season. One of the things that drives me crazy about second hand shopping is the amount of time it takes, and in times like the holidays, I wish a mall full of thrift, vintage and antique stores existed five steps from my apartment. But thank God the online version is a reality- all hail the powers of Etsy!

So, if you’re anything like me and need some major help with shopping this holiday season, here are my suggestions for gifts that will make everyone on your list singing your praises. This shit is UNIQUE!
