Friday Finds: Cookie Headband

Ask anyone what their favorite thing about going back to school is or was, and there’s a pretty good chance they’ll say “New things!”. Brand new clothes, shoes, and school supplies used to be the norm, with parents and students gathering up all of these staples in a rush to be ready for that first day in class.

But it’s the 21st century now, and we’re changing the way we buy and consume. Now vintage and upcycled is the new new! It’s Reducing at it’s finest - and very fashionable.

Still, there is something magical about getting something fresh and new for the first day of school. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be from a factory, or a big-box store, or wrapped in miles of plastic. By buying handmade, we can still treat ourselves to something new, and support an entrepreneur at the same time!

This adorable cookie headband is one example of a great gift to start out the new school year. Whatever you need to make 2010/11 special for your students, chances are you’ll find it on Etsy! You can even use the Shop Local tool to find sellers in your area.
