The silly season is upon us again, which gives me the perfect excuse to go hunting on Etsy for gift ideas (as if I needed a reason…). Jewellery first – here’s a little collection of pretty sparkly things I found for all the Moms, sisters, daughters, friends and girlfriends; all handcrafted – you won’t find these in the shops 🙂
Sweetness & Light
Dark & Dramatic
All of the above Etsy shops are full of gorgeous handcrafted pieces, but I had to give a special mention to Opus Muse as I really really liked most of the things in this one!
This months’ flea will take place on Sunday May 31st at Newmarket, Dublin 8. Be there or be square 😛
Find out more here or email email@example.com
(As always, the specially designed Dublin Flea posters are available to buy for the low low price of a fiver :))
RedCamper‘s range of handbags and laptop bags are made from repurposed vintage car upholstery, original travel and holiday themed 35mm slides, airplane seatbelt clips, maps and postcards. Each piece is one of a kind and features real images taken on real holidays. Each bag also includes one naughty pin-up slide, in honour of creator Maura Gramzinski’s Grandfather, who used to sneak them into the family holiday slide show just for fun.
This was going to be one post with my current favourite vintage bits, but before I knew what was going on I had three pages of things bookmarked (as you do), so I’m gonna have to break it down into sections, starting with coloured glass because I just can’t resist the stuff 😀
These drop-dead gorgeous vintage bus scroll and leather chairs are by DavidMetNicole in Sydney. They’re available to order at Atelier Abigail Ahern for an eye watering £3,995 apiece…. maybe I’ll get two 😛
I’ve just blown off my entire afternoon’s to-do list because I got totally sidetracked by Katherine Raz’s fantastic blog, Back Garage. If you have a taste for juicy mid-century goodness, but don’t know your Eames from your elbow – she rounds it up, breaks it down, tells you what it is, how to find it and how to know when you’ve got it. That, and endless advice and useful tips and tricks for getting your second-hand style on. This blog is a goldmine for thrift shoppers, car booters, eBayers and junk junkies everywhere. 😀

More eBay goodness 🙂
I was so going to bid on this, until I remembered my vow to get rid of some stuff before I brought anything else into the house… A 1948 Box Brownie in working order… isn’t it prettyful? Ends in 18 hours so hop to it.
