I would like to introduce you to a website one of my clients is in love with, its an American site called www.etsy.com , creative people across America can start a ‘shop’ with Etsy and sell their items whether sculptures, furniture or items for your party/wedding. Of course it is the later I am interested in. Although the shop owners are American they do ship to the UK and the prices are so low buying from the US is not as crazy as it first sounds.I’ve had a little browse and have listed my current favourites. You can do your own search by typing wedding reception or ceremony in the handmade items category or vintage.

I love their Swirls and Birds design, do take time to visit their shop as the stationery is stunning.

Handmade soap wrapped in beautiful paper and ribbon as wedding favours, I love the way this is displayed on vintage glass stands as well (see Dream Occasions Hire for ones you can hire).I hope you have enjoyed this taster into etsy, so set aside some time in your diary, grab a drink and prepare for some hours browsing etsy !
