For me Etsy.com is like a flea market for crafters, designers and artists. Due to the fact that the website isn’t juried there are lots of sellers that sell the same mundane things, so you have to sort through loads of stuff to find a few unique, sparkling gems that are well worth their money and will be conversation starters wherever they are seen.
(Pictured above, Hair accessories from Vie Moderne in Pasadena, California. VieModerne (French for modern life) specializes in unique and as handmade as possible accessories that delight the eyes and tickle the fancies.)
(Jewelry above is from desiger Untamed Menagerie. Untamed Menagerie is a collection of the combined works of Penny and Nikki (mother and daughter). Who are inspired by nature, vintage illustrations, and anatomy. They strive to create whimsical accessories that will bring a smile to your face. )
(Gorgeous handmade undies from Touch Me Not in Toronto. )
The best feeling about a trip to the flea market is that moment when you discovered your treasure and you scoop it up before anybody else can get it. I suggest you do the same thing here, because a lot of these items are one of a kind or limited edition.
