Cool Stuff on Etsy

So, I have had some extra time on my hands lately. What have I been doing with that spare time? Surfing Etsy!

I have come across some very unique finds. I thought I would take a quick moment to share them with you. I am continually amazed by the talent that abounds on Etsy!

My new favorite item on Etsy is made by Karen of Karen's Soaps. The Pink Knitters Soap is so cute I can hardly stand it. I want to buy one for all of my friends but none of my friends are knitters! I need to make new friends so I have a good reason to buy this!! I mean really, does it get better than this?? And to top it off, the soap is scented with Victoria's Secret "Pink". My favorite perfume!!

This past weekend I went to the Designer's Downtown Market. This is an outdoor craft show held quarterly that many of the NCTriangle Etsy Street Team members sell at. I stopped by and visited with Tina from Scatterbox. She is an amazing photographer and crafter. This little guy stood out to me as soon as a I stepped into her immaculate booth.

She makes them in several colors and phrases, but this Strix - Inspire is my favorite!

Recently, I happened upon Etsy seller, CWadeDesigns out of Boston. She makes the cutest wristlet organizers and craft show aprons. Her aprons are what originally caught my eye. One of the necessities at a craft show is having a convenient and safe place to store your money and receipts. Her aprons are perfect. And so cute!! Juicy 2 is my favorite!

You found some really clever things. That soap really had me fooled. I thought it was knitting until I read further, and the apron is so much better than a fanny pack!!!!! Great feature.
