etsy extravaganza!

By: Laurie Grassi

Today I'm a Guest Curator on Etsy's blog The Storque -- very exciting! Here's my post for them; for the full article, click here. (Keep in mind that things sell out quickly on Etsy, so if something is no longer available, the seller might have something similar, or might stock something again down the road.) I`m always on the lookout for great natural products for the home from anywhere and everywhere and recently posted about a colourful baby quilt by Etsy`s Sewn Natural ( www.sewnnatural.etsy.com). There`s masses of other fabulous earth-friendly products on Etsy and this is just a small sampling! natsuminishizumiinennapkin1 organic linen napkins by natsuminishizumi Love the splash of colour on these organic linen napkins from natsuminishizumi. They`re hand-screenprinted using water-based inks, and 5% of the profits go to Friends Without a Border, a charity that provides medical care to children in Cambodia (http://www.fwab.org/). Goodness all round! Available at: www.natsuminishizumi.etsy.com Price: $30 US per set of 2 pouchhearts vintage fabric hearts by pouch These lavender sachets from Pouch will add a sweet scent to your drawers or closets and repel moths in a natural, chemical-free way; plus, they`re made from vintage recycled fabric. Available at: www.pouch.etsy.com Price: $11.50 US per pair mariposadragonfly yellow dragonfly nightlight by mariposaavenue What a clever use of an old can! Mariposa Avenue takes what would otherwise be trash and turns it into an attactive light fixture by cutting out a pretty design, painting it a bright, cheery colour and adding a light equipped with a photo sensor so it only comes on when the room is dark enough. Perfect for when guests come to visit or wee ones just find the dark too frightful. Available at: www.mariposaavenue.etsy.com Price: $15 US burgundyjournal1 recycled bright summer flowers journal and sketchbook by burgundydistrict Feeling inspired? If you`re not already, you will be by this colourful 80-page book from BurgundyDistrict. It`s handmade, 100% recycled and perfect for jotting down your thoughts or sketching pictures. Available at: www.burgundydistrict.etsy.com Price: $21 US whiterecord white purity record bowl by vinylrocksmyworld How many people do you know who can say they have something as unique as this absolutely fabulous white bowl by vinylrocksmyworld? I simply can`t say enough about how smashing I think it is! Unfortunately, this item just sold out today -- so disappointing! But that's what happens on Etsy, so if you see something you love, grab it quickly! Let's hope vinylrocksmyworld finds more of these and quickly!
