Etsy October Best-Sellers Reveal Shoppers Already in the Holiday Spirit


For many, the cold weather has already descended upon your area. Snow is covering some parts of the U.S., and the famous colorful fall foliage is at its peak in other parts. With the holidays fast approaching, the Etsy October best-sellers list reflects these seasonal changes as some prepare for a long winter inside as the pandemic continues to rage across the country unimpeded.

If you’re looking to support some small businesses this winter and/or holiday season, check out a great windbreaker from Crippen Design, or a Eucalyptus Citrus Wreath from Creekside Farms. Maybe you need a good scarf, like the Galaxy Space Scarf below; or perhaps a good “jumper,” as the English say, i.e. sweater, like the adorable “Peachy” one listed. These are just some of the excellent Etsy October best-sellers that came up this month.
