Ever since I discovered Etsy, that shopping place for all things handmade, I’ve been dragged in hook line and sinker. If you can sew or craft then I guess some of the items sold are a piece of cake to make yourself and may even be cheaper.
But if you’re anything like me and can’t sew to save your life, then I shop at Etsy! My latest purchase was from HouseofJam.
Its a gadget case tailored for a pocket camera. It fits my Canon Ixus perfectly when I tried. However, I purchased it to hold my mobile phone! :) Its lightly padded and very well made of a sturdy cotton with a strap. What really caught my eye was the warm autumn colors used. I love autumn – its the best time of year! Of course I was born in Autumn so its no wonder I feel an affinity with it :D
My card holder is from Etsy too – Gracie Designs. I loved the black and white contrast with the unexpected red heart. What I love best is the slightly surprised look when I pull out my card holder at stiff serious work functions. Hah! Take that you stuffy work people! :D
I’ll admit that due to the exchange rate of the RM-USD the items may not be all that cheap and we might even find similar items cheaper locally. Still, I’m not complaining that much coz I love what I’ve gotten so far and I love the sturdy materials used and the very good handiwork and one of a kind pieces I’ve picked up. Sometimes, money isn’t quite everything :)
Have you shopped on Etsy and if you have, what have you gotten from there?
