I love etsy!
It’s an online site where people can sell their handmade + vintage stuff.
Trust me, it rocks, + you need to go to there, now.
I opened my own etsy shop a few years ago
+ sell my own hand-stenciled pillows:
When it comes to etsy, I think I like buying even more than selling!!
Just this morning I bought this awesome letterpress card for my grandlad’s April birthday:
Man vs. George Design on etsy
I know!! Isn’t it cool? I’m a huge fan of letterpress anything + numbers!
Here’s hoping my grandlad will be somewhat impressed (no pun intended).
He’s actually been antiquing with us a few times.
He asked for + received the following:
a vintage metal toy airplane to hang from the ceiling in his room.
(HIS idea — honest!)
Since we’ve got ourselves a budding antiquer,
I think I’ll order this book for one of his birthday gifts:
And yes, I am ‘THAT grandma’!
And yes, I am Facebook friends with Mike Wolfe!
BUT, once again, I digress.
My etsy shopping spree continued!
Since we’ll be moving soon-ish, I ordered us this custom-made rubber stamp:
I asked the etsy seller if I could have an ‘OK’ monogram . . .
. . . which is my ‘kooky fun’ thing to do with G.O.’s name + mine.
Get it? O + K?
I ordered yet another custom rubber stamp from an etsy seller, MJ’s art stamps.
They call this their ‘newspaper typewriter’ design.
Within hours of my request, they sent me a couple proofs:
I love it — it’s simple, rustic, vintage-style + looks handmade . . .
. . . which I think is a good match for my pillowmaking business.
When my stamp arrives, I shall stamp some of these red tags with black ink:

I’ll add a little baker’s twine just because it’s cool + comes in the correct color:
And voila! I think I’ll have a unique, eye-catching business card!
Thanks for tagging along with me on my etsy shopping spree.
How about you? Do you shop there?
