Etsy Take Five Tuesday

February 10, 2009

This week I thought I’d try to find a few brand new etsy shops to include, ones that so far have zero sales and have never been blogged. I’ve also included a few favorites of mine who are better known but still make my heart go boom boom bada boom.

Berlinski: Handmade bags and clutches by Alison Willis in Sydney using vintage fabrics. I adore these… very stylish and current.

Herzenart in Germany designs dolls and things out of her home studio and I think her work is pretty special. Sandra Monat is such a sweet person, I’ve had a few conversations with her via email over the years, she’s not only talented but very warm and modest. I really like that recently she has brought her viking doll designs onto greeting cards — very sweet. {website} {blog}

These are a riot, prints of panties! Blue Pumpkin Juice is an artist in Belgium who apparently has a cheeky sense of humor. Fun!

Dr. Kennedy Jones is Hollie Chastain, an artist in Chattanooga who transforms scraps of crumbling paper and dusty, tattered books into art. {website}

Cary Walker of Little Love Blue crafts sweet little things out of wool in her Brooklyn home. {blog} {flickr}

    I am so excited to see a Tennessee Artist included! We have so many great artists in TN (and in the Appalachain area there is a HUGE arts and crafts community)! I also like Blue Pumpkin Juice – how funny!
