White Barn Mercantile - Best of Etsy 2015

I want you to know up front that this shop made it on my Christmas list this year.  White Barn Mercantile is based in Minnesota and makes to order the most beautiful aprons.  The pinstripe pattern caught my eye immediately and I haven't been able to forget about it since.  

I'll admit, I'm not really an apron girl.  Every one I've ever bought seems to be too narrow or short and I end up covered in flour anyways.  But I've got my hopes up for these - they are longer, and have pockets.  Need I say more?  I wore my mom's apron last week while I was sewing baby girl's Halloween costume at her house and it was revolutionary having my scissors and pencil handy.  Now I want one to use in the kitchen & when I'm crafting and sewing!

This cross-back ticking apron is on my wish list. These would be great for any cook, baker, or crafter.  Even a manly man could pull off one of these.

Or there's the red version....I can just imagine the Barefoot Contessa or the gal from Chef's Table rocking this one. {somehow I doubt the Barefoot Contessa rocks much of anything...but I digress...}

If the pinstripes aren't really up your alley, there are solid canvas options too.  I'm a sucker for this bright green, but check out all the color options - this could be a great tailgating grilling apron in your favorite school colors!

Too many options have you stumped on picking a favorite?  Well, here's two more - a chambray & multi-colored canvas style.  Now the decisions begin........

If you end up getting an apron from White Barn Mercantile, I'd love to know which one you decide on - then we can be apron twins! (Hint Andy...that means I need one too).   Check out their Etsy shop and get your orders in early if you are looking for something for Christmas - orders placed after December 12th won't arrive before Christmas!
