Etsy Shopper – Earrings

Welcome back!

This week there will be two Etsy Shopper features so that we are back on schedule! Yay! What a treat! Tonight will of course feature earrings by Etsy sellers and tomorrow will be Halloween items, so be sure to stop back!

The first two Etsy Shopper features had a mixture of both conventional items and recycled ones. I am shifted the focus from here on out to focus ONLY on recycled products that are handmade by the wonderful people selling on Etsy.com. There are plenty of items to chose from which makes me so happy and as usual impressed. Be prepared to be blown away and finding yourself in these shops ooo-ing and ahh-ing at what they have created! I found a really nice mix of fancier pieces and pairs that are just plain fun!

So onward! and enjoy!

Remember that you need to scroll past the pictures to get a product description and link to each seller’s shop, just match the numbers from the pictures to the descriptions…

Etsy Shopper: Featuring Jackets and Coats

Welcome back everyone! The first edition of “Etsy Shopper: Dog Stuff” was such a great success and I am thrilled to be here again with some amazing new products to share with you! This week I am focusing on jackets and coats, which I must admit I have a weakness for! Once again I am blown away by what the talented designers on Etsy are able to come up with!

Since I am fresh out of college and still in that “poor student” mindset, I am always on the hunt for good quality products with a reasonable price tag. I set a goal while choosing items for this feature: keep the products all under $200. So, every product featured stays within that budget. I have also included a couple of children’s jackets because they were too cute to pass by!

For product descriptions and links to each seller’s shop, simply match the number under the picture to the number before the corresponding description.  Now sit back, relax and browse through these impressive products. Make sure that you check out each shop when you are finished browsing because there is a lot more where this selection came from! Enjoy!

About the Etsy Shopper Feature: The Etsy Shopper Feature is a weekly post here on the Reclaimed Threads blog, home of Reclaimed Threads Sustainable Bags. I am an Etsy Seller myself (Reclaimed Threads is the name of my shop, obviously) and am always marveling at the number of talented people that are selling on Esty! I LOVE to shop and seem to always be on a mission for something in particular. Here I will share a compilation of items from Etsy and link you to the various sellers that provide these amazing handmade creations! While I prefer to buy items that are eco-chic and organic (I will always include items that meet these standards) let’s be honest, sometimes that isn’t always reasonable in our lives. Thankfully, since everything on Etsy is either handmade or vintage and many sellers give money to charity (including myself), which is very sustainable, I personally feel fine buying pretty much anything off of this site!

NEXT WEEK Earrings will be featured. If you are an Etsy Seller and would like to be featured or know of an Etsy seller that you’d like to see featured please message me at my shop: www.reclaimedthreads.etsy.com. Please Note: Due to the amount of time it takes to compile this feature, I have to put a limit of 25 featured sellers, so spread the word!
