Here are the travel-focused Etsy items I’m coveting, for home and away.
1. DodoDesigns – Toronto, Canada (woo, local!)
Toiletries bags in fun patterns. Cotton covered in plastic, inside and out.
Perfect for travel since it’s easy to clean & spill-proof.
Variety of shapes and sizes. $30-35
2. OldPosters - location unknown
These incredible vintage tourism posters cost a pretty penny but that’s because
they are rare and authentic. I’ve had design history classes solely devoted to them.
One of these beauties sold for $3000 at Christie’s auction.
1930s-80s. Professionally restored. $75-1000
3. OfTheFountain - Boston, US
Luggage tags are just plain practical, and you can’t beat this rich, aged leather.
Customize with your name or personal message. You can even pick the font!
4. ReneeLoughin - Chicago, US
I would love one (or both) of these sweet brass necklaces. The compass and
collapsable spy glass are fully functioning too, so I could set off into the wilderness
like an old school explorer (but cuter).
5. MyBeardedPigeon - Bellingen, Australia
I’m loving these organic cotton map pillows in custom fabrics of cities, countries
and even entire continents. They are handmade by this lovely eco-friendly family
living off the land.
$55 (for the pillow case)
6. AnnesQuiltingFrenzy - Windham, US
This quilted Scrabble board is perfect for camping, it’s machine washable and could
even double as a towel or dish rag on your trip.
$30 (comes with wooden tiles & carrying bag)
7. Bayan Hippo - Bursa, Turkey
This, in my mind, is the perfect spring tote. Stylish & utilitarian. The hard part is
deciding on the style and colour, but maybe I don’t have to since they are very affordable.
