Etsy…my love affair

April 29th, 2010 by Amy Alphin Leave a reply »

I found a new etsy store today.  LiliSwan.  This could be bad for the budget…For those of you who don’t know, etsy is a website of wonderful, handmade, vintage, quirky and beautiful things.  Real things made by real people.  I found the site when we were planning our wedding last year. I wanted some details with a personal touch.  I ended up choosing earrings for the bridesmaids there (modeled below by beautiful matron of honor, Laura), and two gifts for my mom:  beautiful, hand painted wine glasses and a personalized embroidered handkerchief with our wedding date. I also found our ring bearer bowl there, which we were able to have personalized with our names and wedding date.

Wow.  All were a huge hit.  I’ve found many gifts on etsy, and it’s a wonderful place to get lost.  I love finding new vendors like the one I found today. This shop has some amazing jewelry;  I would like one of each please. Stop on by, you’ll be glad you did!

Oh…links and such:  handkerchief , earrings , wineglasses , ring bowl If you check out nothing else, look at the ring bowl page, from a seller called Paloma’s Nest.  Gorgeous.
