Erin Dollar is an avid blogger, crafty crafter and artists. Her work is quickly making her one of Etsy’s more adorable sweethearts. Dollar makes beards and other art work and also blogs about beard related topics on her blog, I Made You a Beard.

Dollar’s handmade beards are silly and creative. she writes:
“My name is Erin, and I make beards. I live in Portland, where there are only two types of people: hipsters with beards, and lumberjacks with beards.”

Portland sounds a lot like Richmond, except there are very few lumberjacks here.

Dollar also writes that she wants to make beards to help people with the inability to grow substantial facial hair fit in with their hairy-faced friends.

Check out her beards on Etsy.

These remind me of the Vík Prjónsdóttir knitted beard caps I saw a while back on the internets. The beard caps and other products from this Icelandic company make references to Icelandic traditions, folklore and uh… topography.

What do you think RVA? would you buy a beard?
