I nearly missed posting Etsy Take Five Tuesdays today. Oopsy Daisy! Thankfully I remembered just before the stroke of midnight because I have some lovely sellers to share with you with some very special finds ranging from custom fabric to puffy brooches, floral coasters, neon brights, and a man playing his accordion – oh my!
First up is June Craft in Chicago who is relatively new to Etsy. The scalloped edges on this gocco print are so refreshing to see, I don’t think I’ve spotted anything like it before. I just may have to order one… I also like the custom fabric that she designed and printed using Spoonflower (printing details here). It’s great to see people experimenting with Spoonflower.
Roadside is amazing. I randomly found Jayme McGowan while searching for something else totally unrelated on Etsy last night and sat here in shock that I hadn’t heard of her before. She and Roadside deserve major blog coverage because seriously, this work is unique and gorgeous. Wow.
I get so excited when I find quirky unique handmade things, like everything in the Toast Clothing store. These puffy pins are fantastic, don’t you think? How cute to add to your handbag or even a throw pillow.
I take my eyes off of the neon treasures at Raeburn Ink. It’s electric (boogie woogie)! I’m usually not big on neon hues but this stuff is fab, seems the designer really knows how to bring neon from the 1980’s into modern times in the most beautiful way ever. Seems to key to making neon work is to pair it with pastels or neutrals. So grand.
Alison Tauber in Brooklyn has a lot of very nice things. It all looks so comfortable and down-to-earth, and the subdued colors are grand. A few of her design motifs are somewhat retro so there’s this vintage charm about her wares that I really like. The hostess set is perfect, it comes with recipe cards and a tea towel. Great to gift a friend who has invited you over to dinner, especially if you just don’t feel like bringing another bottle of vino. Mix things up!
