Feed The Monkey (Etsy addiction)

I’ve mentioned in the past that I’d developed a bit of an Etsy addiction.

Granted some of the stuff sold there is can be “questionable” at times (and has spawned a satirical site heh…thanks to Tom for the introduction) I’ve found some pretty cool stuff there.

For instance this camera bag from Janine King Designs.

It wouldn’t replace my ‘real’ camera bags by any means but it is great and light for knocking about with and has room to carry a couple of extra lenses.

And, like I said… light weight which is a real bonus when you’re doing a lot of walking around.

Another recent find is Kailo Chic run by a lovely lady named Kara.  I’ve bought a few items through her, first a wallet then an eyeglasses case.  I liked the wallet fabric so much I asked if she would make me a matching change purse which she did gladly.  My Mom loved them so much she wanted her own set.

The lighting on the change purse is a bit off  but it is exactly the same fabric as the wallet. I get lots of compliments on them all and they’re very well made.

The cute wallet:  (which is a smidge too narrow for Canadian money but meh.. so it gets a tiny bend in it)

The glasses case (I use for my sunglasses)

Last but not least (by any means) is my latest find Paulina Carcach

Can you just say love at first sight?

I LOVE purses. Purses to me are what shoes are to a lot of  other women. Just like shoes, you are never too fat to wear a purse but with the added benefit  of not hurting your feet..

Top it off these babies are hand-made, beautifully so and made of real leather (smells GREAT!) The hardware is top-notch and ohhh the buttery softness of the leather and gorgeous satiny lining. I have already picked out the next one I want to buy. She sells through Etsy  but has a greater selection through her web page.

On top of buying some unique and cool items I also like that I’m supporting small business.
