Winter/Summer Showdown: Northern Hemisphere! handmade and vintage goods

Today, the Northern and the Southern hemispheres will face off in a weather showdown of Etsy cuteness. Which season will prevail? Who has the better weather? Who has more flattering options for their current temperature? The tension is killing us!

Here we have many warm and cozy items for those living above the Equator. Snowy days may be upon us, but adorable accessories make the season a little more tolerable. Enjoy the cooler temperatures before the sweltering heat returns!

What’s your favorite season: summer or winter? Leave it in the comments!

    I too love winter accessories, but I prefer crisp autumn days above all others! Is there a place on earth that is autumn all year round?

    Grazie for including me! I have to throw my vote to Spring & Fall because I'm not about extremes. Mild climes are my fave. ;)

    I like both summer and winter... Well, in my home country (Finland) at least... Here in Mexico City the best time of the year is definitively spring, because in summer it's raining and in winter it's cold (but without the snow, sigh...).

    I love the summer but I'm from California and I am used to the year round good weather, I live in Atlanta now and during the winter I hybernate, I am way to scared to drive on icey roads.

    Winter absolutely! Cozy fires, snuggling under blankets, comfort food, and of course you can always add clothes but there are only so many you can take off...

    I ask myself often, "why do I live in MN when I hate the winter?" I love cute winter accessories, but don't like being bundle up to much that I can't put my arms down... Hmmm... I'm going to have to say I love summer the most!! Those hot summer nights are my favorite ;) Although, fall is good, and you can wear all those cute hats and scarves then!!

    alkemystic88, what icey roads? lol. I live in Atlanta too, and I've yet to see a flake of snow or a bit of ice this year, beyond what accumulates on my windshield overnight from time to time. Atlanta isn't a good example of winter. I miss more wintery weather, where it actually snowed. I'm originally from Ohio. I don't get to wear my winter clothes much down here. I had to donate most of my cute sweaters when I moved down. :( But I love winter accessories, esp. since I have a cute scarf (LilMousieBrown) and nice warm hat (TepperWear) from etsy sellers!
