As I was researching 4th of July holiday fashions, I ran upon a really cute top being sold on Etsy.  I was a little surprised, as I hadn’t really looked around Etsy too much beyond wanting a handmade gift at one time or another.  What I did run across were fabulous 4th of July finds on Etsy that go far beyond handmade crafts!
