My love affair with Etsy started through theSpike the Punchshop, before then I really wasn’t really sure was Etsy was. Yes, I had heard about it here and there but was clueless as to what you can actually find on Etsy, which by the way is just about anything you can dream of. Spike the Punch was the first shop I added to my "favorites" and the first shop I began stalking for her beautiful bright necklaces. I finally got one a couple months back but by then I was hooked on Etsy. The other day someone asked me where my iPhone case was from and when I replied a shop onEtsy.com,the young lady looked at me with a confused face. I said "Do you know what Etsy is?" and she replied "No, what is it?". It was then that I realized I needed to spread the word more about Etsy because if you are not shopping on Etsy you should be. Etsy is the place to buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies. It is the world's most vibrant handmade market place, and my favorite place to find one of a kind items. I bring to you today some of my must see Etsy shops, of course I have tons, but these are some of my favorites.
This is where I purchased my monogrammed iPhone case, but they have much more than just monogrammed iPhone case. They personalize just about anything from glass cutting boards, to coasters, to luggage tags. I looked at many monogrammed shops and Southern Belle Boutique has the best prices from what I found, and not to mention amazing customer service. She sent me two proofs besides I decided on mine and was so nice about it.
I recently hired my cute lobster designs to help me finish the design of my new blog on wordpress. Their simple and beautiful designs on the Etsy shop drew me to this shop from the hundreds of web designers I found on Etsy. Tasha was so nice and understanding of the situation I was in, I knew I had found the perfect person to complete my blog. My cute lobster designs is not only super economical but professional, understanding, and completes jobs super fast. Communication has also been outstanding, whenever I write an email or have the silliest question I receive a response ASAP and I mean ASAP. Stay tuned for my new wordpress site in the next of couple days, I can’t wait for all of you to see it!
A friend of mine purchased a one of a kind necklace from the Etsy shop Love Obsessed, letting me on the secret. Wow I was blown away by this one of a kind jewelry. This shop finds vintage jewelry, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, and then gives the pieces a new life by adding bright colors. A must see and a must shop!
Ruby Mines makes the most beautiful vintage crystal encrusted tassel earrings. I found this shop one day just browsing on Etsy, as I often do, and I immediately added it to my favorites. Though the earrings are a little bit pricey, they are worth investing in and keeping for those special occasions when you need something to stand out on a big night out.
These are just some of my favorites on Etsy, but I promise if you visit the site and spend really only thirty minutes browsing anything you want to search you will fall in love with much more from this community of artists and creators. Happy Shopping’s!
