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.

etsy friday finds 02.15.13

Welcome to my third attempt at Etsy Friday Finds. If you missed the first two installments and have no idea what an Etsy is, go here.

As you may have noticed, I wasn’t able to post a Tuesday Transfers this week. I’ll make next week’s post extra long to make up for it. Hopefully. I just simply ran out of time this week.

Which brings us to my theme for this week’s Etsy Treasury. Time. We never have enough of it, right? From clocks to watches, typography to photography, even a little Doctor Who…this week’s Etsy Friday Finds is rather an eclectic mix.

So, while you recover from your Valentine’s Day Hangover and continuously flick your eyes in the direction of the office clock to see if it finally reads 5:00 pm, here’s a list to start you on the black hole journey that is Etsy Browsing (clicking on either the descriptions or the images will take you directly to the item’s listing on Etsy). You’re welcome.

#1 – Time to try defying gravity poster from shop Raw Art Letterpress
#2 – Soviet Vintage alarm clock from shop Soviet Watches

etsy friday finds 02.08.13

Welcome to the second installment of Etsy Friday Finds. If you missed the opener and have no idea what an Etsy is, go here.

As I hinted earlier this week, my second Etsy Treasury is all about the color mint green. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I further labeled this list mint to be. Please don’t vomit on your screen from the cheesiness.

Mint green is about the only attribute these items have in common, as they range from furniture to photography, art prints to vintage clothing, mason jars to jewelry…it has a little of everything.

Without further adieu, here are this week’s Etsy Friday Finds (clicking on either the descriptions or the images will take you directly to the item’s listing on Etsy):

#1 – shabby chic mint green side table from shop RORO decor
#2 – seashore rustic jewelry holder from shop geaugaroots
