Though we can totally see the appeal of mass-produced goods (easy to come by, usually pretty affordable), no space is really complete without a dash of the handmade. The character that an artisanal product lends to an interior far and beyond outdoes anything you can find at a big box store. Hence, why we love Etsy and all its indie makers, particularly those making goods for the kitchen. If your kitchen could use a touch of a human hand, why not try these 10 gorgeous finds on for size to spruce up the heart of your home.
