Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Oh Etsy, how you continue to inspire me with your thousands of new stores popping up every millisecond. But the time! The time! Where does it go? It takes hours to scour Etsy for finds that I write about in this column, but I don’t even mind because I’m always ready for a little treasure hunt. Here’s what’s on my radar this week friends — hope you love ’em as much as I do.

Dandee Designs has some darling finds, I like their crafty feel and how well made everything is. The Mini Spring in a Can kit is super cute, complete with burlap and pom pom trim and if your garden doesn’t grow, you have a cute pencil cup for your office.

I love the Big Idea notebook from Chewing the Cud in San Francisco, along with their old-meets-modern design aesthetic and cards — I really like vintage typewriters so I can never see too many of them as a design motif. So cute.

If you have a crush on chairs, you’ll delight in the work of Maria Janosko. Her current chair series is excellent but then again I’d have a house full of chairs if only my husband would allow it. :)

Nina Van de Goor in the Netherlands, whom I just love (her home is gorgeous), just opened a brand new Etsy shop where she currntly offers her ceramics, so fluid, sculptural, the shapes are organic and lovely in pure white. But more is to come, including screenprints and collage. Congratulations, Nina!

Turkish designer Irem Petek Guven has a store packed with handmade jewelry, placemats, and more. Colorful, fun, happy, and definitely unique. Great work.

    I love the chairs, the prints remind me of Doris Salcedo’s installations.

    I just spent a full day looking at art on Etsy and noticed that chairs seem to be quite the hot topic.

    Thanks for this post. I went right to Dandee to get the spring in a can for a friend who needed just that. It was perfect and Danyelle at Dandee was wonderful to work with.
