Etsy friends

I'm a big believer in buying handmade, buying local, and buying vintage. Plus, everybody loves Etsy, right? So with the holidays coming up I wanted to point out a few Etsy shops that my friends happen to run, and that have some really bad-ass stuff.

* Lyons Lady: sells handmade metal-flake wallets and accessories. She also does custom upholstery work and has done my personal bike seat and camera strap.

* Lucky Starr: This shop used to have a retail location in the Marietta Square, but has since closed and is in the process of relocating to a friendlier area. This is where I held my book release party, and where I've purchased many rad vintage items.

* Cuz I Felt Like It: I recently posted about her awesome stuff here... Handmade bears, fluffidermy mounted heads, aprons, stockings, and more. I of course have my own collection of her awesome stuff and another piece on the way.

* i love you both: pretty vintage things. I worked with this lady in one of my favorite Savannah shops. She's as sweet as can be and has a great sense of style. She blogs her heart out on her personal blog, and in her Design Sponge column, What's in your toolbox.

And of course don't forget to take a look in my shop for vintage photo goodies, supplies, photographs, postcards, and books! Happy shopping.
