Great Looking Rain Gear: Guest Post on Kirtsy!

Brittany's guest post on Kirtsy

Here in the Northwest, when temperatures drop and leaves change, so too comes the rain. Don’t get dreary, get dressed up!

Today over on Kirtsy I’ve put together a collection of great looking raincoats, umbrellas, wellies and more, with something for everyone in the family. Go see!

I’m really thrilled to be among their smart and creative contributors. It’s a world of blogger crushes over there.

Kirtsy began four years ago as a place to find and share the best of the internet. It was started by three friends, Gabrielle Blair aka Design Mom, Blog con Queso‘s Laura Mayes, and Laurie Smithwick of UpsideUP.

Their community grew, they authored a book, and started not one but two popular conferences.

Kirtsy relaunched this summer with a whole new look and an update on their original vision. It’s pretty fantastic. Each day they post “a new slideshow curated by some of the most interesting people online.” You’ll find collections of all kinds filled with art, design, products, photos, projects, even food. You’re gonna be hooked.

Curating elsewhere: Etsy!

Something from Etsy for someone by Wantist

We’re adoring everything about today. We’re guest curators on Etsy!

From the world’s most gigantor and well-loved handmade marketplace we’ve selected a small but mighty collection of gift ideas for outdoorsy, fun-loving, professional, domestic, and geeky someones.

It’s an exciting opportunity for Wantist for sure, and absolutely thrilling personally. For the last few years it’s been wonderful to see the enthusiasm and exposure Etsy has fostered for independent makers and their craft. This has broadened our selection as consumers immensely while at the same time given us access to one-of-a-kind products made by remarkable everyday people that we previously would not have had the privilege to support. We like that. A lot.

As curators of gift ideas we relish the opportunity to showcase products from indie sellers on Etsy, Cargoh, Supermarket, Storenvy, Foodzie, Felt & Wire and a gajillion small-scale boutiques right alongside those from the big guys. In fact, we’re just getting started.

Go check out our picks on Etsy, find a handmade gift for someone, and tell us about it in the comments.
