Sarah Clemens Clothing: I am a stay at home mom, homeschooling my 3 young kids by day and sewing by night. I love flowers and fabric and sewing, so i decided to put them all together and sell my creations!
Clothing has always been a love of mine, but nothing out there was different enough or fun enough. I’d daydream about the things I would wear if I could, and then spend hours drawing them. My mom and grandmother taught me about sewing at a young age, and over the years I taught myself everything else I know by just trying things out…
Linen is mainly what fabric I use, the way it drapes and rumples and wrinkles and all it’s little nubs and the way the dye is always just a bit muted… there is no comparison!!!
I hope my clothing makes you smile, every outfit is made with lotsa love!
This week, I decided to take a trip abroad to bring you the Shop Local post. My finger landed on Tel Aviv, Israel on the ol’ Etsy globe. I hope, one day, to be able to visit Israel – so much culture, so much history – but for now, this virtual shopping excursion will have to suffice!
Neta Amir is a formally trained fashion designer who left the commercial fashion industry to create one of a kind dolls. Her dolls’ quirky sense of fashion created such a following that she was convinced to recreate their accessories in people-size! The slippers above are the result of this inspiration! Neta describes the comfort of these slippers as like “walking in a blanket.” Yes, please!

Gabby from Post creates these wild “tattoo” socks! Let this winding design poke out of a skirt or cropped trousers and you will certainly turn some heads at the office. Post also stocks vinyl decals and textural silver rings, designed by Tal.
Limor from OTIOT is also a trained textile designer working towards her degree in industrial design. She features sun dresses, onesies, and other children’s clothing in addition to the burp cloths pictured above that she will personalize in any language!
If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, stop by the Tel-Aviv Contemporary Crafts Market that’s held every Tuesday and Friday in the Nahlat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall! Purchase handmade wares from the artisans themselves and discover that self-expression through craft knows no bounds.

Hello, my name is Kelly Massey and this is my line of handmade wearables, Pretty Penny.
I live in West Hollywood with my husband and fantastic, fun, little girl who is seven. They put up with my piles and piles of fabric and leaning towers of ink jars relatively cheerfully because they are often busy making things too.
Lately, I have been screen printing and sewing scarves and clothing out of bright and soft bamboo and cotton knits.
One Girl Circus offers delightful, versatile designs you won’t find anywhere else for girls and boys. Every day is a special occasion for your little ones; they should dress the part!
I make all clothing items to order with my own two hands, and it is important to me that each piece is as beautiful on the inside as the outside, as well as being comfortable and durable for everyday adventures.
All of my clothing is washable and crafted with care, so that even the most sensitive little ones don’t feel scratchies or itchies. Seams are entirely enclosed where possible, any exposed seams are professionally finished to prevent fraying, and tags are stitched down for comfort.
Handcrafted with heirloom-quality construction means that these are the clothes you will save for your next children, or the next generation of children.
