Etsy is my Kryptonite

I seriously think there needs to be a 24 hour waiting period on items from Etsy. It’s entirely too easy to go on an impulse shopping spree! Amongst my recent scores: these breathtaking lustreware teacups from Sweetshorn Vintage. They’re now happily holding ranunculi on my hall table.

From Tiny Modernist, I bought the patterns to sew these cross stitch iconic chairs. I’ve always wanted a womb chair, and having a tiny one on my wall is a pretty good substitute. Thanks to Lynne at Tea for Joy for the find on these!

The Bright Side Project recently featured the fabulous jewelry at Yeah Hello, and I just had to snap up these darling little rings. At less than $8 apiece, how could I not get a few different colors?

High Street Market is one of the most buzzed about vintage shops on Etsy, and you’ll see why once you peruse the incredible selection of tablewares and home accessories. This turquoise Royal Haeger platter is just begging me to host a cocktail party

Seller Dandee Designs is currently on maternity leave (congrats mom!) but I can’t wait till she gets back—her sweet stationery designs are right up my alley. I used this one for a recent engagement party I attended. Isn’t it adorable?

Tell me: what’s your shopping kryptonite?

    Living overseas for the past two years, I’ve missed the rise of Etsy. Why is a “shop” like High Street there and not on eBay? Lower fees? More traffic? Craft-y cute factor?

    Oh my word, I’m totally with you on Etsy = kryptonite!! Those rings + teacups are *so* darling, and the cross-stitch project looks fun… eek, I’ve been so good today, not having gotten on to etsy (yet!)… Let’s cross my fingers for me, and hey, I wouldn’t mind shopping vicariously through you, if you’d like some more justification :D…

    omg, etsy, etsy! i couldn’t even read through your entire post without clicking through to etsy. stop me!!! and of course flea markets are always dangerous…
    {one of my krptonite’s used to be anthropologie, too, but then i found out the owner donated money to the yes on prop 8 campaign. that made it easy to break that habit.}

    old cameras and fresh flowers.

    Anne–those teacups are beautiful! I tend to be most impulsive when I am at gourmet food stores–love buying oils and spreads that I have never tasted and always insist in my head will absolutely need someday when I am entertaining or cooking!

  9. Absolutely Not Martha Says:

    those teacups are BEAUTIFUL and i just may need to get myself one of those rings.

    Etsy is my Kryptonite too. I’ve done pretty good to resist lately. But you sure did a number on me with this post. Great stuff!

  11. Brandi Says:

    I’m quite addicted to Etsy as well. I’m also always a huge fan of Anthropologie…especially when there’s a sale. And at Etsy, it seems like everything’s always affordable and, you know, when I’m buying direct from the artist, I’m doing something good for the world. I love some of the things you posted here…they’re quite lovely!

    Oh, my! Those tea cups are absolutely stunning. I didn’t know I could feel such love for a tea cup. Congrats on the score and thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    Anne! I owe you ant earrings- they are being held hostage in a friend’s shop only open on the weekends!!! Eek! They will be to you as quick as I can get there. So, so sorry!

  16. Danyelle Says:

    Anne, I’m so happy you love the card. Etsy is indeed a lovely place. To buy AND sell. And to also connect with gems like you.

  17. Lynne, Tea for Joy Says:

    Oh, I would love to see your cross stitch progress! In the UK, I love Top Shop. I get carried away all over the place; Etsy, eBay – oh, and I do love Anthropologie as well.

  18. kelly Says:

    Anne! I just checked your blog and found that you mentioned my shop! Thank you for the kind words, they make me feel proud. πŸ™‚
    You should receive your AWESOME platter shortly! Thanks again!

  21. Rachel (Heart of Light) Says:

    So many new Etsy sellers to add to my favorites! I’m glad you bought those teacups, because otherwise I would have been tempted.

  22. Melissa Says:

    I could get lost for hours looking on Etsy. You found such amazing stuff. I fell in love with those rings too when they were featured on the Bright Side Project πŸ™‚
