Five Favorite Etsy Stores- Nativity Sets

by - Sunday, November 20, 2016

I want to keep highlighting amazing makers in the US, and I feel like my Etsy links can get caught in the more mainstream shuffle. So starting a series to focus on the greatest stuff we have found.

Nativity sets might make a perfect gift for newlyweds or someone in a new house. You may think of them as looking a certain way, but these beautiful symbolic decorations come in so many forms. I love these reminders of what Christmas is all about, and this way no one was mistreated on the way to your celebration.

Under Angel Wings (Poland) makes sets so lively and beautiful that I just had to share (even though they break my US-made rule). These are gorgeous and I love them.

Poppies and Paisleys (Utah) make ones that just look fun. When we were kids, my Grammy would let us play with her nativity sets, and that is what this reminds me of. The perfect one to have out if you have kiddos in the house. Plus, look at that sheep and donkey. Come on!

Silver Holly (Bend, Oregon) makes creches for Willow Tree nativity sets out of reclaimed wood. If you have collected the sets but want to support something more local (Willow Tree is made in Elsewhere) and more eco-friendly, start here. I will be lusting after these creches this Christmas.

Classic Nativities (Maine) make these simple, beautiful nativities. A good reminder things don't have to be fussy to be really special. Also, the stable is especially well done, I think,

Northwind Metal Art (Minnesota) make this beautiful metal silhouette nativity. This one seems really special to me, plus I am very impressed with newborn baby Jesus's neck control. Would look so pretty with some lights behind it.
