Happy Friday and welcome to my Fab 5 Etsy Shops post! First, I'd like to apologize for not posting this last Friday, but, things just got all crazy last week (the new norm). Once I came up with the idea to do etsy shops as a Fab 5, I quickly got overwhelmed trying to narrow it down to 5.
So, this list is more like 5 that really caught my eye as I browsed through my favorites. They are Fab, and there are 5 of them...but what I realized is that I may need to do a Fab 5 Etsy Shop post a few more times!
Without further ado...here are today's Fab 5.
I love this shop! Having just dabbled in invitation design myself, I am quite fond of the aestetics behind this shop. You can see more of Jamie Wyckoff's work (lead designer) on their website, but their shop holds a lot of wonderful "previously-loved" designs as well. Here is one favorite invitation suite:
I'm horrible at supporting etsy shop owners, which is a crime, since I am one. Don't get me wrong, I'm a supporter by "promoting" and clicking that little heart next to the shop to let others know it's a favorite, but I'm not a big buyer. However, I've definitely bought (and have items in my cart as we speak) from Tine and Thread. Tara, shop owner, provides all sorts of paper goods including stationery, stamps, and my favorite...vintage stamps.
Sigh, I just love the work of Lucille Prache, artist and shop owner of Lucille's Kitchen. I need all the prints in here. I need them. (Christmas is coming up (hint, hint...) and my birthday is May 4th (if you want to send either a really late gift or an even earlier one...). Lucille is a French illustrator based on of Paris and her shop is dedicated to mainly her food illustrations...but you can check out more of her work on her website (which is exquisite, by the way).
The Whimsical Muse is a great shop for packaging supplies - like bakers twine, stickers, and even packagin kits. Pam, shop owner, offers the basics for crafting and packaging needs - at a great price and in different quantities. Plus, she has a rating of 100% positive out of almost 700 people to leave feedback. I like that. Good job Pam!
Elly, of ARTificial Lights says of her business/hobby - "All of these lamps have been rewired, revamped and meticulously cleaned by mwah." She finds old lamps - you know, probably the really ugle ones - in antique stores and yardsales all throughout the MidWest and makes them gorgeous. I want one - or five - of them. Go look, you'll see why.
That wraps up today's Fab 5 - like I said, I'll probably have to do an Etsy Shop series because there are just so many...but these are just a few with that I've clicked the little heart next to.
