And then the items arrive, and I get the excitement of opening a package! Some things are prettily wrapped, like gifts. Sometimes they include bonus items, like a bookmark, a pin or even candy.
Every so often, these wonderful artists and artisans and vintage hounds team up to sell items for a good cause. This time, Etsians are helping clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
So here are a few of my favorite items from the "HelpTheGulfCoast" shop.
This beautiful hammered sterling silver cuff, by cgwhitfield.
Adorable earrings made from coffee beans, by baublesbanglesbeans.
