Where to Find 21 Handmade or Vintage Gifts - Etsy Gift Guide 06/2022

Hi There..... If you could choose the items for a gift guide, what would they be?

Would you love to see handmade items, fashion items like clothing and jewelry, or beauty items to take care of yourself? Maybe you would rather have something completely different? I would love to know. πŸ˜ƒ

Ah yes, sorry, I am the nosy type. I am always sticking my nose where it doesn't belong. πŸ˜‰

Haha, no, it's not that bad. I can restrain myself when I need to, but that doesn't stop me from wondering. 😁

My mom used to say I was always asking lots of questions. I found on the internet that kids ask about 40.000 questions between the age of 2 and 5. Isn't that incredible? 😲

Today I am answering your question on where to find handmade or vintage by sharing some of these Etsy shops' finds. 😍

Crochet mermaid doll $31.06

Beautiful crochet mermaid doll with removable tail revealing her cute bikini outfit. She has long golden yellow hair tied at the back in a little plait. 

This little doll measures approximately 32cm to her feet (without the tail) and 45cm, including her tail. I made her of 100% acrylic yarn, stuffed with polyester fiberfill and with plastic safety eyes.

You can request other colors, but the delivery time will be different and confirmed upon ordering.

I made this doll using a pattern by Michelle Alvarez at Bunnies & Yarn.

Genuine UV Red Seaglass $134.30

Hailing from a mind-spinning variety of original sources, authentic sea glass comes in every color of the rainbow and each shade in between, manifesting in an astonishing array of configurations and forms; so naturally, certain surf-tumbled treasures are less common than others. 

Indeed, while all genuine red, orange, yellow and exquisite amberina sea glass is exceptionally rare, scarcer still are uranium-infused pieces that glow when exposed to ultraviolet light. Given these facts, the fourteen stunning surf treasures used to create this handmade locket represent the most intriguing of my collection. 

Smoothed, fabulously frosted, and shaped into myriad tiny triangles, rectangles, circles, and teardrops (measuring anywhere from one-half-inch tall and one-third-inch wide to one-quarter-inch tall and one-quarter-inch wide) only by time, the surf, sand, and salt, these stunning ocean gems have been upcycled into a unique, opera-length fillable locket necklace. 

Handmade with a focus on highlighting the innate beauty of this autumnal prism glass and designed to be filled with whichever pieces best match your mood or ensemble, the sublime ultraviolet gems that fill this larger locket represent almost every conceivable shade of red, yellow, and orange, including rare amberina, characterized by a striking blend of distinctive tones of orange, yellow and red.

Sea Foam Sea Glass Necklace $42.35 - $44.77

This shimmering, silver chain necklace has a gorgeous sea foam sea glass pendant that captures the calm and serene feeling of the beach. Sea foam sea glass is an uncommon color, that ranges from green to blue with varying color intensity. With the minimal wiring wrapping and dainty chain, this necklace is the perfect everyday necklace, as its colors can go with any outfit!

The sea glass used for the pendant of this necklace is approximately 5/8 in width and length. Remember, this is an approximation. The actual size of your sea glass may vary slightly! The 18-inch silver-plated chain has a pretty shimmer that makes this necklace lovely for special occasions or as a gift for someone who loves the beach. This length, also known as "princess," is a universal and versatile option that looks great with almost any neckline.

As a beach combing enthusiast, it is so important to me that all the sea glass used is authentic, wave-tumbled sea glass. After finding the pieces, I clean and polish them to prepare them for wire wrapping. I design each piece based on its own unique color and features to highlight the beauty of the sea glass.

When you hold your pendant to the sky and the sun shines through, you can truly enjoy the magnificent color of the natural phenomenon that is sea glass.

In order for glass to become sea glass, it undergoes years of being broken and tumbled in the ocean to transform its hard edges and shiny surface into a round, frosty stone! Each piece of glass endures its own journey, so no two pieces will ever be the same!

The innate uniqueness of sea glass makes it a very charming and thoughtful piece of jewelry.

Cat Ball Cave For Cats $78.64

Our Cat Ball® cat bed is modern pet furniture, a padded cat cave with two openings, offering your cat privacy and comfort.
The Cat Ball® is made of six panels, fully lined and the seams and two openings are finished with bias tape.

This bed is made with a rustic woodgrain fabric that has a scratched-up look and is lined with a coordinating plaid. The fabrics are 100% cotton and are made by Riley Blake.

The Cat Ball® cat bed is flexible, washable, and foldable. Cats will smash it, sit on top of it, hide in it, and sleep in it. It's a great prop for cute cat photos.

WILL MY CAT FIT? Yes, your cat will probably fit. We regularly see 18 and 19-pound cats using this bed. Remember that cats like small spaces!
IS THE CAT BALL WASHABLE? Yes, but you need to follow our instructions. Wash it alone. Only use cold water. Never use bleach. Tumble dry on low setting only.
HOW BIG IS THE CAT BALL? The Cat Ball® has two openings, one large and one small. They measure about 6" and 10". The bed diameter is 17", and the height is about 16".
WILL MY CAT USE THIS BED? Does your cat like boxes, tunnels, and small spaces? If your cat seems to be claustrophobic, don't buy this bed, but if your cat likes cave-like things, he/she may enjoy the bed. If your cat does not respond, contact us for some tips and tricks. Occasionally, a cat never figures the bed out and we accept a return, but usually, it just takes some experimenting and time.

Lucky Pocket Rock $20.57

Keep this rock in your pocket, purse, bag, etc, and if you have a yes or no question, ask it, then pull the rock out: the "hot" desert side is a "yes" and the "cold" winter side is a "no."

Use on any occasion.

Rocks in this shop are acrylic-painted and coated with outdoor spray varnish. Acrylic paints are long-lasting and pigmented; spray varnish is water and weather-resilient, making them perfect for stone crafts.
