Anyway, thanks to a few of these new-found shopping soul mates I've been on an Etsy binge, and lookie at all the goodies I found!
Wooden Typewriter Key set, $7.95
These are actually photographs of vintage keys applied to thin birch wood and cut out with a laser cutter. Considering how expensive real typewriter keys are getting, think of the possibilities. (Plus they also come in white!)
Golden Snitch necklace, $24.99
I've featured this seller's gorgeous Hedwig necklace before, but now I think I need the set. I know there are lots of snitch necklaces out there, but this is my new favorite.
Companion Cube Die, $27 each
That's it. I need to take up table top gaming.
This next find is actually a whole shop of tiny wearable gadgets, from working lighters to compasses to UV detector necklaces. It's total gadget geek heaven.
Compass Necklace, $12.99
And it comes with an equally tiny glass bottle of ink!
Moving on to a little pony sweetness:
And in the crazy-expensive-but-we-can-still-dream category:
"The Alchemist's Daughter," spherical leather-and-metal bag, $306
It comes in either black-and-silver or brown-and-brass, and sweet Staypuft is that gorgeous!
On the more affordable steampunk front:
There are several different styles at the shop, too.
Then there are the steampunk notebooks of Diarment Creations:
Would you believe that's all made of cardboard? 'Cuz I'm not sure I do. o.0
They average between $25 and $30, really reasonable for such a work of art. They seem to sell faster than I can keep up, so check his shop for what's available. (There's also this fantastic globe over there, but John says I'm developing a globe problem and can't buy any more. HARRUMPH.)
Wrap-Around Fox Ring, $70
Adorbz. Need I say more?
And finally, something I'd love to see more of on Etsy: craft kits!
White Rabbit Kit, $10
Apparently it comes with all the felt, ribbon, & crepe paper you need, plus that little green sprig and a pattern with instructions, of course. I do wish the seller specified what else you need besides "basic craft supplies," but for $10, not sure I can complain much. ;)
Ok, my friends, guess I'll leave you to enjoy the rest of your online retail therapy session. Have fun, and try not to break the bank!
