Some of My Personal Etsy Shop Favorites - Artists and Items!

I decided that I would list a few of my favorite Etsy items and a few of my favorite Etsy sellers. Since there is so much talent on Etsy, it would be impossible to try to list every thing. However, I can begin to make a dent in it!

First off, I will start by showing you an item that knitters and crocheters alike will love!  CarolBroadleyPottery just listed this Purple Rain Yarn Bowl. Carol makes fantastic pottery items, and has even added bathroom sinks to her shop!

Secondly, Engelfelt is a paradise of custom created yarn goodies.  This is her Cowl Valentine Berry Smoothie--Chunky Handspun Merino with Rose Wool Brooch.  How pretty is that? Linda also makes the best felted soaps. Yes, I did say felted soaps. Who knew?

Next, GoodGosh is a very unique and quirky shop. To say that Peggy's greeting cards are not 'ordinary' greeting cards, would be an understatement! Her Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree card is a great example of her work. Where she comes up with her ideas, and the props to use in her work, amazes all that know her!

Last, but certainly not least, is Haut Totes. If you are looking for a bag that you might find at Wal-Mart of in the mall, this shop is NOT for you. However, if you are looking for pinup girls, skulls, geisha girls, tattooed ladies, and just about anything else out of the ordinary, this is the shop to look in. The Purple Dragonflies, Asian Mum, Peonies and Stripes, Large Tote Bag is one of my faves, however, I would have a hard time picking just one.

Ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am, well... eccentric. That being said, it is not always a bad thing. I just tend to deviate from the norm. To me, normal is boring.

You will love my next featured artist. Her shop is fantastic, and definitely 'out of the norm!' Check back, as you will love her interview, and her products are amazing!


  1. Well, how bout that?? These are some of my favorites, too!! :)

  2. That yarn bowl is rocking my world - I can;t wait to see what other colors Carol lists (I like to make an informed decision, you know)!
