etsy finds

New purchase made from so excited for these snakeskin print harem pants to arrive at my door!

Anyone else completely addicted to the wonder that is this website? Like ebay but you don't have to fight other people to get your fix of vintage or amazingly crafted clothing and accessories OR try and set your alarm to go off at 3:22 in the morning just to get your last bid in. And when you receive your goodies through the post, they are usually wrapped up in beautiful little packages - so cute!

Here are some of my favourite sellers, please check them out and support original, handmade crafts and well-sourced vintage pieces.

Whichgoose - Stunning and ethereal hair accessories handmade with love by this very talented woman (who also looks exceedingly lovely modelling her creations). Have bought many a hair comb and crown here, all of which satisfy my occasional need to get all dressed up like a fairy princess and wander about town as if I am skipping through a field in the countryside. PERFECT for festivals and general summer time, my 'May' natural vine crown was a winner at Glastonbury last year, and I am looking to this store for more this time around.

Thyme2dream - Fairy and elf-inspired jewellery to make each day that little bit more magical. Love their fancy ear cuffs, bohemian ear wraps and circlets, made with colourful beads, curling, looping wire and a lot of creativity. Available as seen on the shop page or as custom pieces for that special and unique piece that you're hankering for, you're sure to find something to charm you!

KnitKnit - Lovely things to be found in this quaint shop with a knitting and felting slant. The Knitted Power Chord is a dream buy... wear it as a necklace, bracelet, wrapped like a scarf or use as a belt - whatever you do with it, you're sure to get more than a few comments! The Felted Cameo necklaces are equally as charming if you're after something a little different...

iheartnorwegianwood - For the sexiest way to accessorise, choose a harness from this amazing shop. This era's corset, the harnesses are the perfect way in which to pull together an outfit - imagine one layered over a silk maxi for pretty/hard look or worn with a little t-shirt and harem pants for a more casual daytime statement. The chain harnesses are my favourite but with the many different colours in the elastic ones, there are loads of options to pick from whatever yor style.

Persephonevintage - Find upon find of vintage goodies available in this shop, the ethnic print skirt, leather shorts and heavily detailed cropped jacket below are just three examples of the high quality vintage pieces that this place seeks out and then stocks for your shopping pleasure; new season trends are always reflected. Wonderful, wonderful stuff - ah to have limitless money to spend here...

Ashaloo - Simply stunning jewellery for the bohemian within. NEED the Gold Shimmer Chain Headpiece in my life - and for my wedding! Equally gorgeous for everyday wear to glam up your normal wardrobe, or for a classically elegant touch to a goodtime outift, this shop will sort you out. The chunky knuckle rings, body harnesses and cuffs are amazing too, ah too too much that I want from here. Now stocked at the influential SpanishMossVintage as well (a true mark of success in my books)

leolucaescobar - More inspirational vintage pieces to be discovered in this shop on Etsy, one of the greatest - I think - for vintage shoes; on-trend espadrilles, clogs and wedges are all here as well as the usual pretty printed dresses, gorgeous blouses and quirky bags - buy buy buy!
