Etsy Take Five Tuesday

September 9, 2008

Hello friends! I’m back from Amsterdam so you know what that means… lots of great things to show and tell which I’ll get to shortly (tonight or perhaps tomorrow). But first, I cannot let Tuesday go by without the weekly Etsy Take Five Tuesday. Enjoy!

Bostonian Jill Rosenwald recently notified me that she has a? new shop on Etsy where her ceramic creations are sold, ranging from plates to bowls and vases. Fantastic patterns and colorways… really great.

Pirilampo Riscado is based in Portugal and is a-m-a-z-i-n-g-l-y talented… gifted really. I cannot take my eyes off of her intricately woven handcrafted treasures to wear or display. This jewelry is not only breathtaking but made with heart, you can feel it as you look over her goods in her Etsy shop. I keep finding myself back on her Flickr “Necklace” set just to drool. When I see work like this I’m reminded of the sheer talent that exists in this world and how privileged we are to be online with continual exposure to it all without having to jump on an airplane.

Marta is a one-girl shop in Barcelona where her thoughtfully made things are sold under the name Emedemarta. Wood, linen, and cotton are a few of her favorite things along with deer and mushrooms (still popular motifs amongst indie designers, especially here in Europe).

Pardon My Vintage (cute name) is a shop filled with new-to-you finds curated with love and exceptional taste. Some of my personal faves include the retro pear canister, the folksy recipe tin, Rorstrand Fenix cup and saucer, and the vintage Heath mugs. Best part, she’ll ship worldwide! You can keep up with the latest Pardon My Vintage finds also via her Flickr account.

Bubbo-Tubbo is a sweet shop you’re certain to adore as much as I do. Originally from Russia now living in America, I stumbled upon Natasha Mileshina and her illustrations just this morning by roaming Flickr and was quite pleased that I took the time to wander… her drawings are pretty special! I’ve already decided to place an order for a few of her prints to put in my hallway. I can’t help myself!

    Welcome back! Love the cup and saucer and now I know the designer I shall be on the lookout… although am thinking they could be few and far between in Australia. I also love the jewellery and as am opening my own etsy store soon I shall know what to put on my favourites!

    I started cutting down on shopping from department stores and even haberdashery stores about six months ago and am happy now to be putting the money which would have gone into those places into supporting businesses like those above. Much better made too!

    Wow–Congrats!! Have never been to this website before and I am blown away by it’s breadth—so eclectic and chic and inspiring …and what a relief after so many mags that just promote so many chain stores…Loved the necklace…
    well done !!

    Fantastic selection!
    I have been a fan of etsy for so long, but it’s getting harder and harder to dig through everyone on there- so many shops!

    I will definately keep checking back on tuesdays for the select few you choose. I too think its great you are supporting the independent artists and craftsmen, and not just the big companies that are already doing good business.
