Etsy faves

21 Sep

I’m not sure why I waited so long to talk about Etsy. I assume that most people know about it, but just in case you’re not in the know: Etsy rules.

Etsy is where people who handmake things (jewelry, crafts, clothes, housewares, pretty much anything else you can think of) can create their own little store – all on one big ol’ website. When you purchase from Etsy stores, not only are you supporting individuals in their creative endeavors, you’re also not buying from sweatshops or paying retail mark-ups. And what I enjoy most of all: You get unique stuff.

I have this thing about purses – I really really don’t like it when I see other people with my same purse. When it comes to clothes, I’m not fond of seeing duplicate outfits, but it doesn’t bother me too much. But when it comes to bags that you carry every day – that are part of your every day look – I want it to be unique. I want people to notice it and ask where I got it. I like compliments!

That is why I try to only buy bags on Etsy. Today I’d like to highlight the bag I’ve been using pretty much every day for several months now. The seller is fromnancy, and this is the bag:

I wanted a bag with a long strap and a considerable amount of room, but I didn’t want a messenger bag. And this bag is perfect! There are no zippers or buttons or anything to mess with. The top of it just folds over, and there are 3 internal pockets – for my sunglasses, cell phone, and iPod. Check, check, and check.

And it was only $35. Yes, that might be more than you’d pay for a bag at Target, but I think it’s worth it to support Etsy sellers. And they tend to keep their shipping prices low, unlike a lot of sellers on Ebay and other websites.

Here’s another fun thing about Etsy. As a shopper, you can create a profile (which you have to do if you want to purchase anything), and you can browse shops and tag items as your Favorites. Then when Christmas or a birthday or some other gift-giving holiday rolls around, you can give people the link to your list of Etsy favorite things and pray they buy something off it.  Here’s mine (it’s short because I’ve been avoiding Etsy, thanks to my underemployment).

Gap sale Thursday night

18 Aug

All Gap stores across the country are having a special sale this Thursday, August 20 from 7-9 p.m. Shoppers will receive $20 off jeans and an additional 15% off their entire purchase.

They will also have acoustic performances at all the stores. Frankly, that sounds kind of annoying, but $20 off jeans is a good deal!  Learn more here.

The parties are celebrating the launch of Gap’s 1969 premium jeans and their 40th anniversary. They are introducing new fits and washes. This makes me sad because I just recently discovered that their Long & Lean fit is perfect for me. And now they’re apparently changing it. Booooo!
