In celebration of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World on October 12th, 1492 (celebrated as Columbus Day) we decided to round up some very cool handmade wares that sport some of your favorite states. So whether that’s your hometown, current residence or the place where you met your beloved, enjoy flipping through these amazing creations.
Almost all of the items listed here can be made for any state in the U.S. (and some other countries as well), so don’t fret if we neglected to list something for your favorite state. Simply click the store name and see what they have to offer. You can also “convo” any shop owner and ask them questions about their custom options. Or take the internet in your own hands to find shoes, jewelry, art and household items inspired by your favorite states and cities. Happy browsing!
Not particularly beholden to any one state but feeling patriotic? We wanted to kick things off with this awesome embroidered adjustable necklace of the continental 48 (sorry, Hawaii and Alaska!) from Il Gatto Selvatico.
