Remember the Etsy Challenge? Inspired by my love for Anthropologie (and my love for a good bargain), I searched Etsy for home decor similar to Anthro's vintage-inspired pieces. Now the Etsy challenge is back, with even more stores, and with a holiday twist.

The rules of the challenge are simple: find a covetable holiday item at a retailer, and then find a similar one for less on Etsy. Take a look at what I found.
