etsy friday finds 03.01.13

Welcome to the latest Etsy Friday Finds, showcasing my latest Etsy Treasury full of 16 great handmade or vintage items. To see all the Friday Finds posts, click here and scroll to the bottom.

I’d like to start this post out by wishing my Dad a Happy Birthday. He turns…old today (haha love you Daddy).

I don’t know about your Dad, but mine is extremely difficult to shop for, on any holiday. Birthdays, Christmas, Father’s Day—I always draw a blank. He likes golf, his vintage camera collection, his iPad he won for free from some work contest and didn’t even know the value of or how to use it until my sister and I informed him that it was just a silly gadget and we’d love to take it off his hands for him if he didn’t want it, golf, bacon, his dog and…bacon. And golf again. There’s only so many golf gift certificates and accessories you can gift before you start feeling wholly unoriginal. This served as the inspiration for today’s Etsy Treasury list.

Despite what some people think, Etsy is not just for women. There are plenty of unique items out there for Dads and men of all ages. To prove this, I’ve listed 16 items here that I know my Dad would love, including a 6 month bacon club MEMBERSHIP where you are shipped bacon for 6 STRAIGHT MONTHS because HELLO it’s bacon and who doesn’t love bacon?

#1 – leather and wool retro iPad case from etsy shop OSTFØLD
#2 – retro industrial desk lamp/pendant light from etsy shop Ironclad Industrial
#3 – Vintage Black & White Film Camera Wood art from etsy shop Kristen Archer

This camera wood art is from my sister’s shop and features photographs of my dad’s actual vintage camera collection.

    LOVE THESE! My dad is also extremely difficult to shop for…who also loves golf. The Gearheart print and the Kiss My Putt marker are perfect! But he is also a corporate business man by day, so the pretty wooden pen would look great on his desk! Thanks for the tips!
