Ready to get your holiday shopping on this weekend? In the midst of all the Black Friday madness, don't forget to support small businesses too! There are practically an infinite number of independent artists and craftsmen making amazing products out there, and if you're not sure where to start in your area, one super easy place to go no matter where you live, is Etsy.com. Here are just a few of my favorite holiday gift finds for fashion, kitchen and home decor, from the mecca of online indie shopping.
