I’m not lacking for addictions – chocolate, shopping, horror movies, etc. But
why not add another hang-up to my repertoire. Etsy has been a Huntley & Co.
resource for a few years now, but lately I’ve become a little more obsessed. This
online bazaar is like ebay in that it’s an emporium for clothing, furniture and knick
knacks. The difference is that Etsy contributors are legitimate artists, craftsmen
and shopkeepers – not some creepy dude in New Jersey trying to sell his
collection of vintage Liberace records. So if you’re in the market for something
hip, funky, unique or exquisite, Etsy will have what you’re looking for … and
probably a few things you weren’t, but now can’t live without. Heaven!
Drawing on Panel
If you want to start collecting art, Etsy should be your first stop.
Young, fresh talent in every medium imaginable.
Sipping cocktails from this glass would definitely incite mischief.
Twiggy Leather Boots
Fall is coming – time for some new chic but comfy
boots for running around town.
… And some new sweaters. Laid back luxury at its best.
Vintage Ted Lapidus Sunglasses
Glasses are a tricky thing to purchase online. But this glamorous pair may be worth the risk!
Vintage Malachite Brooch
I’m going to buy this stunning brooch.
I love malachite especially against a backdrop of gold.
Handmade Walnut Table
There are a bevy of talented furniture makers on Etsy. This one specializes in hand-
crafted solid wood furniture and is based in my hometown of Minneapolis.
Simple, clever and a steal compared to similar bubble-style
pendant fixtures popular on the market right now.
Midcentury Espresso Set
I love warm metals – gold, brass, etc.
So how fabulous would this coffee set look in my kitchen?
Hanging Tillandsia Terrariums
Terrariums are so cool. Hang them from the ceiling, add a spindly
plant and suddenly you have a living sculpture in your home.
LesSoeurs Vintage Cameo Earrings
These earrings are gorgeous!!!
Vintage Lucite cabochons in a gold tone brass frame.
Vintage Red Faux Fur Hat
I wish Americans still wore hats on a regular basis.
… and traveled with a sense of panache.
Vintage Crimson Skyway Luggage
Large Leather Bin
For those of us who love to organize with style. What a great tote for newspapers or kindling.
Custom Pet Portrait
I want to have my beloved Nina immortalized in a painting. But I would like it
to be slightly unconventional and I don’t want to spend a fortune. Amanda
Wolfe creates 8×10 gouaches based on a photo you supply for only $100.
Five Color Letterpress Card
I love a good card. This one is graphic, witty and sentimental.
The perfect send-off for that special someone.
