shop local: dinosaur toes.

thanks to the lovely photographer Alicia of Bloom, Grow, Love (i adored these postcards i bought from her) and this post, i discovered on etsy that you can type in your city and find local etsy shops. GENIUS, especially for this girl who just moved.

that's how i found Danielle of


i'm pretty sure she thought i was weird, writing her a comment and asking about local hot spots, but i thought she was pretty fabulous. just like her etsy. below are some of my favourites, including the bow necklace i purchased.


thanks to her, i know that Lynchburg has an "Urban ArtBaZaar" every first Friday from 5:30-8:00pm at Riverviews Artspace where local artists and designers host a sell. Sounds like my kind of thing. Thanks Danielle!

you should check out her whimsical blog, Dinosaur Toes. also, i bet you couldn't find something you disliked from her etsy shop. lovely, just lovely.

Micaela, thank you SOOOOO much for including me in this post, I really, really, really appreciate it! But you're wrong about one thing, I don't think you're weird at all, and if you need a local friend, you know how to get in touch with me! xoxo
