Social distancing and staying home are the best ways to slow the spread of COVID-19. But if you have to leave the house, it’s a good idea to wear a face mask to protect yourself and others. Where can you find masks to wear? These local Etsy shops in Birmingham have you covered—literally.

1. FifthAndMill

FifthAndMill creates reusable face masks that are designed to help keep you safe. 

I decided to support FifthAndMill by purchasing two of their masks, and I must say that when they arrived, I was an instant fan. 

Made with 100% cotton fabric, the masks are super soft and comfortable, plus they fit perfectly. 

What’s especially cool about them is that they feature a pipe cleaner in the top seam so you can mold your mask to your own unique face. No wonder they fit so well!

Masks are also made with a special pocket so you can insert a filter for an additional layer of protection. 

New patterns are always being added to the collection, so be sure to check FifthAndMill’s Etsy page often.

Available Sizes: Adult & Child
Price: $8-$10 each

If you live in Alabama, there is one thing that defines you. Do you know what it is? Which college football team you root for, of course!

You’re sure to get a “Roll Tide” or “War Eagle” when you sport one of these masks from rxknitter

Masks use the Olson style pattern, are washable and come with your choice of paracord, ribbon or cloth ties. They also feature a double layer for extra protection.

Masks ship fast, too! As things start to reopen around Birmingham, this is a big bonus if you will soon find yourself needing to leave the house. Expected ship date—1-2 business days.

Check out these American Flag-inspired masks for another Olson style option. 

Available Sizes: Adult & Child
Price: $12+

Bonus: masks are reversible! Just choose your two favorite fabrics from the collection and wallah! Two masks in one. 

I’m partial to the pink duck and lemon fabric choices. However, there’s no denying the retro mix tape fabric makes my inner 80’s kid smile.
