What we’re buying…

June 10, 2009

We thought it might be nice on occasion to let you in on a few of the our recent etsy purchases that haven’t yet been featured in our weekly Etsy Schmetsy round ups. We wouldn’t want anyone having the misconception that only sell on and post about etsy — we are also frequent etsy shoppers. This week’s purchases are all made by Samantha and Jessica (tiniestj); it appears that Owen and Kirsten have been exhibiting a bit more budgetary control.

If you shop on Etsy, or have thought about shopping on Etsy, you should take a few seconds to take the Etsy Shopper Survey. They really do want to make the shopping experience as good as possible and feedback will help. It is anticipated that the survey will be live through May 22nd.

For those of you in San Francisco, I highly recommend checking out the Modern Ecomony Sample Sale at Fort Mason on May 2nd. The sale is organized by Mateo Ilasco and will feature over 40 great designers including Jill Bliss, Petit Collage, Perch! and Variegated, Inc.

For those of you who aren’t in San Francisco, it looks like Modern Economy will be having a 48-hour online sale beginning September 9th.

Pare Umbrella

Umbrellas are an often forgotten but vitally important accessory. Having a nice umbrella can brighten up an otherwise drab day. I already have many options in my umbrella repertoire, but I’ve had my eye on the selection from Seattle-based Pare Umbrella for a while. Now that it is Spring, I think it might be time to get one — I just can’t decide which I like best.

I would really like to take a trip to Kiosk. We tried to go the last time we were in NY, but sadly, it was closed. They sell an amazing selection of everyday objects that they collect during their travels. Their current selections are items from America, but on the website you can still find some of the items from past collections.
