Our Favorite Etsy Shops for Super Bowl 2015
People around the world celebrate the lives of loved ones in many wonderful ways, and we, the Everlasting Footprint Team, find memorabilia created in remembrance of others truly inspiring. Leading up to Superbowl 2015, we commemorate football, families, and American cultural heritage.
In some families, there is a legacy of playing sports or being a fan of a certain sportsteam, which transcends generations. Football, both at the college and at the professional level, is an all-American game that brings families together for celebrations throughout the year. From spring training to summer try-outs, from Friday night lights to the Superbowl, football is a part of many family traditions throughout the year.
The online community of shopkeepers at Etsy connects people looking to buy and sell vintage sports items and handmade artwork for football games, football teams, and Superbowl parties that can’t be found anywhere else. Each shopkeeper, and each item they bring to market, has a history, a legacy, and a story.
At Everlasting Footprint, we are dedicated to bringing people together to share stories and express their feelings on celebrating life and cultural heritage. What better way than to review some of the amazing pieces, artisans, and craftspeople who work every day to keep football history alive?
Although there are thousands of great Etsy shops that feature vintage Superbowl collectibles, Superbowl party items, and other football artwork and merchandise, here are our Top 5 Choices:
Advertising “Pennants Galore!” the Etsy shop of AntiqueSportsShop.com brings together very rare and highly collectible antique sports items.

Not only does the shop boast a wide collection of pennants, but they also have antique bobble-heads and football themed beer mugs for sale, alongside some really cool early 20th century artwork of female football fans.
A costume shop specializing in dance and club clothes and cheerleading costumes for women, this shop is for the female football fan who also loves tailgating and fun in the sun. Although the skirts are short and the tops are generally bikini-style and revealing, the designs are varied and offer different styles and color combinations for practically every professional football team, and many college teams as well. If you’re looking to make a big splash at your next football event or Superbowl party, these costumes will certainly help you do that. For the lady football lover who doesn’t want to let everything hang out, shopkeeper Cynthia Shiller also offers a line of handmade lingerie, so a lady can represent her team discretely.
