I am a strawberry freak. I don’t “collect” them or anything, but I do love them. I love how they look, I love how they taste, I love how they smell. When I was little, I was a Strawberry Shortcake fanatic. And, while they’re not in season in the Northeast now, it’s always strawberry season somewhere, so here’s a fresh picked crop of great strawberry stuff from Etsy!

It’s taking all my strength to not order up this vintage canister from seller Mysweetiepiepie.

While we’re on canisters, how about this stellar Ransberg gingham and strawberry set from Sanduca.

Shifting gears, I like these screenprinted notecards for their simplicity. Very charming for a little girl (or a big one). From sarahparrot825.

While I could probably get away with using those cards, unfortunately, there is NO way this toddler tee from tshirtproject would fit me.

For the do-it-yerselfer, here are some vintage strawberry supplies from antiquesgaloregal.

And of course you’ll want something to put your pins in while you’re sewing (from kimbercraft–other similarly adorable designs available).

I love the 1940s-esque quality of this tote from bitspeaces.

And think these pottery sauce dishes from elegantware would be really handy.

Vera collectors would go gaga for this set from seller shopatmoxie.

Here’s another toddler shirt for good measure from southernsweetcheeks….

And some bobbypins from veryvintage to match!

Last but certainly not least, I’d be remiss in not including a vintage Strawberry Shortcake doll from trunkofpretties (who has a killer collection of 80s dolls…her “sold” items will take you down memory lane…well, they did me!)

Oh, what the heck. While I’m including something from my kid days, here’s a scratch and sniff sticker from missmidie.


Hope you enjoy this basket of delight as much as I do. I’m berry glad you stopped by!!! Har har.


*With thanks and apologies to Siouxsie and the Banshees (a line from their song “Christine.”)


Updated to add this, for those whose curiosity was piqued!
