Share your Etsy Finds!

Recommended Posts

With less than two weeks to go until we depart for our destination wedding, I just wanted to share my favourite Etsy purchases with you all from the following fine artisans:

 

PALOMASNEST created our ceramic ring bowl, my bouquet charm, the mini monogram charm for my FI's bout, and mini charms for our parents' bout and corsages.

WOODANDGLASS created our personalized glass swizzle sticks that will be in our signature drink served at the rehearsal dinner.

Our custom made instant photo guest book was created by THEHANDMADEBOUTIQUE.  I asked that the paper monogram on the front cover be left off to allow me to attach an engraved metal plate.

LILAFRANCES created an amazing "MRS" wire hanger for me.

 

And finally, in lieu of a card for my FI on our wedding day, I had QUOTESANDNOTES create this personalized mini book for me to write in and give.

I felt it was important to acknowledge these amazingly talented folks, especially as I am in the midst of dealing with two other very disappointing Etsy purchases : (

Thanks!!!  I can't wait to show friends and family and incorporate everything into our special week : )

 

I certainly learned a valuable lesson...if what you are after from an etsy seller differs in ANY way from work/samples they showcase on their site...whether it's colour, shape, size, etc., request a mid-point communication/photo share to ensure that you're both on the same page!!!  I realize they're all busy, but it wouldn't take much time on their part to do this...rather than taking the attitude, "if you don't hear from us, assume everything is going well."  Believe me, it would save a whole lot of time, headache and heartache on both ends...

Hi Girls! Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/leahrhood - This girl does custom made orders for weddings, special events, & gifts. Her store has many items - alot geared towards an antique/vintage style. But everything is beautiful, especially the jewelry! I have bought some earrings & necklaces that came so nicely packaged & were exactly as pictured! Highly recommended!!!

I just wanted to share that this morning I discovered tophatter. It is an online auction by etsy sellers. I went on there to try to win a house decor item, which went for way more than I could pay, BUT I did buy 3 definitely underpriced jewelry, all great for the wedding, or bm gifts, or maybe just presents for myself! I got a beach charm bracelet, regularly priced for just under 30, for 12, and earrings also for 12 (regular price 18), and a seaglass necklace for 20 (regular I think was 24.) When I get pictures, I will post them.

Anyway, it is a great way to get some items for different prices. Two of the items I bought also had free shipping to Canada; when their shops normally do not, and the other item had reduced shipping. The sellers often seem to be 'in the room' as well, if you have questions or anything.

Anyway, just wanted to share. Kind of annoyed that I found this... I lack restraint and willpower. Maybe I need a bigger house?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
