I have a terrible weakness for boots, and I’m trying to ignore the siren song of the Nephele.
Traditions carries both genuine vintage and vintage-style items. I’ve found a couple of things to be a bit overpriced (check out the Halloween Dolls–there’s a witch you can get for $20 at Tuesday Morning), but they carry a ton of stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else. They organize things into artist collections, so you know who did what. I also kinda love how it’s all on one enormous page. You just keep scrolling…
(note: all the links go to the main page, as there aren’t individual item pages)
Creature Carvings doesn’t have hundreds of items, but what they do have is beautifully done.
Katya takes her original carvings and turns them into lovely candles, perfectly priced for gifts. I think the Spousal Unit needs one of these.
While I have several favorites, this one truly makes me smile. Noooo! Don’t burn my head!
I can never resist a good JoL. Note the holiday-appropriate price.
I’ve linked My Soul Design from the facebook page, but I thought it was worth a full post here as well.
Natalia Lubieniecka creates astonishing spiders, beetles, and many other critters at her studio in Vienna, Austria.
The sculptures are created with vintage fabric, beads, and semi-precious stones.
Definitely something I’d love to wear. Despite (or maybe because of) the screams.
Traditions carries vintage-style decorations for all the major holidays, and they do an especially good job with Halloween. Want something a little spooky for your Christmas tree? Traditions has a lovely section of ornaments and tree-toppers. Even trees! I’m keeping this one bookmarked.
I found this Bone Forest Gifts while I was hunting around for Christmas hints for the Spousal Unit. I refuse to come up with a specific wishlist, but I’m happy to point him to a couple shops. This one is in Russia, so I doubt it could ship in time. Maybe for my birthday?
Marianne says the people in town call her the forest witch. I’m sure they mean it in a good way.
