Last year I was lucky enough to win £500 in vouchers to spend on Etsy. I could have gone for one expensive thing, but I decided to keep it in my account and use it for the little things I wanted to buy. I found some lovely shops and ended up with some fantastic buys. I want to share some of my favourite things with you here.
Light Up Your Life
When Boo asked me for some fairy lights for Christmas I may have gone a little over the top. I bought some lovely lights which both the girls have lining the shelves on their bunkbeds. These are so incredibly pretty and the girls love them. Battery powered, I have to keep reminding them to turn them off, but they have the switch near their pillows and are able to turn them off before going to sleep easily.
The New Rug
I needed a new rug and I was looking for something purple and shaggy. I was so pleased to find this rug on Etsy and for only £26.99 for the size I wanted. I love it so much I’m considering buying another for my bedroom.
I have always had a passion for crystals and already had a couple of crystal shops favourited on Etsy. I treated myself to some new crystal treats.
Love Light and Harmony is on of my favourite shops and the Lovely Lindsey will make bracelets depending on what you need. You can tell her your problems, physical or mental, and she will choose the perfect selection of crystals and use reiki on them before sending them to you. They are always so beautiful and unique. This is one of my favourites.
I also bought a lovely lapis Lazuli necklace from Lindsey which I don’t think I’ve taken off since I bought it.
Another of my favourite crystal suppliers is Tru Path And I bought myself some lovely things from Tru.
One was a real treat for myself and it was a gift box including a facial roller and many other crystal items.
Mugs are a great buy and you can find any kind of mug on Etsy. I chose a mug for my daughter (the crazy cat lady) on one for my husband (the PS4 addict.)
Sadly my daughter’s cat mug is no longer available but it’s a little like this one
Soaps and Candles
Etsy is a great place for handmade soaps and candles, especially vegan ones. Here are a few that I purchased.
A Real Treat For Me from my Favourite Things
I’m not one that buys stuff for myself very often, I much prefer gifting. But as I won the voucher I felt that I could really treat myself. Of course, I bought other people gifts too, my husband had a new wallet and I bought jewellery for others, and the lights for the girls of course. I also bought some Christmas decorations including coasters and a door wreath. But now I had the chance to buy some of my favourite things.
I am a big fan of ‘His Dark Materials’ and always wanted something based on the Alethiometer than Lyra uses. I fell in love with this steam punk inspired watch based on the Alethiometer from The Geek Booteek I bought one for myself and I love it so much.
Do you Etsy? I’ve spent all of my voucher now but I was a customer before and I will remain a customer. These are some of my favourite things.
