8 Philadelphia-centric and Philadelphia-made Etsy Picks

It would have made more sense for me to compile this list before the holidays, but there are always birthdays, weddings, and housewarming parties that demand some type of gift. Obviously, the ones I would choose for this blog are Philly-centric. More importantly, all of the items are Philly-made as well.

1. Make a Match Memory Game Philly Edition
Mama May I toys and games are made by Jessica in South Philly. This memory game and others can be found on Etsy and online. You can also follow her on Facebook


2. 2013 Philadelphia Calendar
Alyse, a South Philly local and graphic designer, created this custom illustrated one-page calendar. Her work is on Etsy and at her personal website. You can also follow her on Facebook and on Twitter


3. Philadelphia Cityscape Watercolor
Carol has created a series of beautiful watercolors featuring a variety of different cityscapes. Check them out at her Etsy shop


4. Philadelphia Skyline Necklace
Christina’s skyline necklace is the view from 95 north near the Girard exit. In addition to skylines, she also hand sculpts necklaces to reflect different states. For more of her work, check out her Etsy page.


5. Mini Storage Boxes from SEPTA Maps
These boxes are just the beginning of Maggie’s origami creations. My favorites are the Quilted Origami Mosaics. Perhaps I can get one made using SEPTA maps.


6. Philadelphia Neighborhoods Map
The Philadelphia Map Company is a treasure trove for me, perfectly combining my two loves. For more of their maps, go to their Etsy site or online


7. City Hall Sketch
Mike is a professionally trained architect and amateur artist. He’s got other great sketches at his Etsy store and at his website


How amazing is this shirt? Find this, and many more at Joel’s Etsy shop and online. All Socially Conscious Shirts are printed in Kensington. You can also follow the shop on Twitter and Facebook
Please note, these items were all culled from Etsy and don’t represent the extent of Philadelphia’s craft scene. I know. I’ll do more posts in the future to highlight some other portions of the community.
