In Ecstasy Over Etsy



I appear to have developed a wee little shopping problem, courtesy of Etsy, the most kick-ass online shopping site in the world. (Thanks a lot, Heather).

Anyhoo, in case you haven't discovered this incredible spot, I will pass on the unhealthy addiction. Here you go..... Etsy

I adore etsy. I could totally spend hours there.

Beer soap? No way!

Love the pumpkin. I'm so ready for fall.

Oh, Etsy! I actually have to avoid that site, as it's a danger to my solvency. Plus there's so much choice and so much of it is good, you get lost in there for HOURS.

But while I was on vacation I caved, and bought two vintage early fifties Butterick dress patterns (for a very reasonable price, considering they're still packed and uncut) so I'm looking forward to a little craftiness myself this hurricane weekend.

Can I also put in a shameless plug for my good friend's Etsy jewelry store?

Juju, I DO spend hours there. God help me. I'm ready to do my xmas shopping now and it's only August. I love those glass pumpkins, too! They are just so gorgeous!

Penelope said...

Hi Meg! Have fun with your new patterns! I love the vintage clothes on this site. Your friend's shop is great....I just added it to my favorites. Thanks for the link!

I LOVE ETSY. Must avoid.....;)

Penelope said...

Hi Mandi! The good thing is that a lot of the stuff is cheap. The bad thing is....I want tons of stuff. Oh oh.

Oh wow! Amazing shopping site. I'm so mad at you...now I'll get lost in there!

Thanks for the mention and let me know when you get your order in! Etsy is a bit frightening to go to, so many things that I want to buy!
