Some of our favorite friends in town for the festivities were a pair of brand spanking new parents who came with their eight week old all the way from the Bay Area to spend time with friends and family as well as hit up the Fest. I think he was the tiniest baby I ran into the whole time. He was a real trooper and his parents were amazing, well-prepared and super patient. Their little one is the inspiration for today's post - Etsy Nola has so many incredible, original goodies for babies!
The Posh Baby Shoppe has super sweet vintage baby hats for great prices. If there's one thing every Nola baby needs, it's a chic chapeau for this spring sunshine!

Beaucoup Boutique specializes in hand painted and decorated canvas shoes for the little ones. Easy to put on for the toddlers, and decorated in festive, fun prints.

I'm currently in love with these cute burlap totes from Sazerac Stitches! I know they aren't necessarily baby-related, but I think they would make an amazing diaper tote with your sweet little one's initial on the side!

I saw a few parents with toddlers and small children who had their little ones carting their own little backpacks of goodies around the festival, which I thought was brilliant. These personalized beach towels from Ingrid Elizabeth would be great for little ones to use as festival blankets (and to take to the beach or pool!). She also has adorable tutus in a variety of fun colors!

Lastly, no festival-goer should be without a parasol to stave sunburn and join in the second line. New Orleans Umbrella Co. has a fantastic selection of feathers and fringe to choose from!

Happy Festing y'all! We'd love to see how you use some of your Etsy Nola finds during this spring festival season! Share with us on Facebook!
