With the aproaching holidays, we Etsians have been hard at work creating inventory to be good little scouts = prepared! The month of September started out with a bang which led me to believe the recession may indeed be over. The holiday buzz is starting and I can see that people are visiting more frequently and 'marking their spots' in anticipation of the actual gift purchasing time. Are we waiting for the full moon, next paycheck or what? The Etsy community is full of OOAK (one of a kind) artisans and if you see something you like now, I can guarantee it will not be there tomorrow. Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines...the silly season is upon us and shopping is in full swing.
On that note - I have found a few true artisans in their respective fields and wish th share them with you today.
White Thistle Designs - WhiteThistleDesigns.etsy.com - This lady has a real eye for color and design. She makes OOAK purses and pillows out of extremely high end designer fabrics. Lots of raw silk and embroidered fabrics. I have to say I have my eye on a few pieces of hers! Prices range in the $30s to $40 and are a huge value.
Redneck Candles - redneckcandles.etsy.com - again a true quality artisan in candles. They are soy based and quality oils. They are fantastic in customer service and aim to please.
I will continue to be posting some of 'my favorite things' so stop by often and will be asking my favs to offer specials and give-aways so don't be a stranger. They will be available only through this blog.
Have a great week everyone.....BUY HANDMADE PLEASE.
