Our friends at Etsy had a hunch that we’ve been visiting their gardening marketplace. Maybe it was that Michelle finally found the 1970s style wooden planters she’d been looking for through a seller on Etsy or maybe it was our post on wooden bead hanging planters that gave them the hint. Either way, they asked us to curate a collection of our favorite garden-related Etsy goods and share some tips for keeping plants happy indoors. Take a look at some of the handmade and vintage products we found, and head to the Etsy blog for our full post.
Above: We picked this Vintage Large Glass Apothecary Jar ($40 from Kibster) because it’s big enough to accommodate a hefty bouquet or just a few architectural branches.
Above: Good gardening shears can become a close friend when tackling a pruning project. We like these Vintage Garden Shears from the 1950s; $24 from TriBecas Vintage.
Above: Are you surprised to see that a Brass Watering Can from England made it on the list? Didn’t think so. CostaSul, the Etsy shop that sells this beauty, is currently on vacation but we think it’s worth waiting for.
Above: Our infatuation with marbling continues with handmade hanging Marbled Hanging Planters; $80 from Leah Ball.
Above: We love a good multi-tasking vessel. When this porcelain vase isn’t holding flowers, it can be topped with a cork stopper and used as kitchen storage. Although this larger one is no longer available, you still can pick up a smaller Simple White Vase; $40 from Vitrified Studio.
Above: Some of us at Gardenista are apartment dwellers in SF and NYC without much outdoor space of our own. Since herbs can be the easiest plants to grow indoors, we picked an Herb Heirloom Seed Kit (tiny vials and wooden box included); $40 from Sarah Rainwater Design.
