Indie Friday: Etsy Wishlist + Gift Card Giveaway!

Hey hey, it's Friday! Have you got fun plans for the weekend? Or will you be glued to your computer like me? Today I thought I'd share a few of the items on my Etsy lust list. For enabling entertainment purposes. Even better yet, every single thing on my list is $10 or less! Hooray for not breaking the bank. I hope this whets your indie shopping appetite, because I'll also be giving away a $25 Etsy gift card to one lucky reader! Woo-hoo! (Giveaway details/Rafflecopter widget below.)


1. Debaucherous Bath & Body - Marshmallow Woods Lotion ($10)
Human brains are weird, man. I used to never like wearing overly sweet fragrances on my body, but lately I can't get enough of marshmallow scents. Debaucherous Bath makes a bunch of "Marshmallow Woods" scented products, with the following notes listed: Toasted Marshmallows, butterscotch, vanilla bean, woods, maple leaves, acorns. Um, that sounds AMAZING, and perfect for fall. I've never tried Debaucherous before but I'm tempted by the lotion—have you tried them? Any no-miss products?

2. Sleepy Mountain - Nicolas Cage Earrings ($9)

Just when you though the internet's obsession with Nicolas Cage was dying down ... nope. Who needs diamonds when you can wear the star of fine films such as "Snake Eyes" or "Knowing" in your lobes? If Nic Cage isn't your thing, they also earring versions of Steve Buscemi, Bob Saget, and a variety of other celebrities and food items. If you buy them, I'm sure you'll be the only gal (or guy) with Bob Saget earrings on your block. Just saying.

3.  MAKINGtheNESTofIT Mini Clothespins (prices vary)
I've had this obsession lately with hanging things by clips. Mini clips, to be more specific, as it's a known fact that tiny things are just cuter. The pins in MAKINGtheNESTofIT's shop come in a variety of adorable designs and colors—squee! Perhaps my home office will finally be Pinterest-perfect if I get some of these. (Or not, because like ... I'm still a slob.)

4. Elsie J - Cheesy Love Card ($3.75)

Some of you may already be familiar with the Elsie J shop because of the thing I posted yesterday about Pennie Post, but if not, check it out! She makes ADORABLE stationery, invites, cards etc. This is one of my favorite cards that I spotted—if you don't want to click on the link, it's a picture of two anthropomorphic pieces of cheese holding hands with the caption "Let's grow MOLD together." I am 100% certain this would make my boyfriend laugh. Buy one and tuck it away for Valentine's Day, perhaps?

5. Notoriously Morbid Divinations Blush Collection ($8.50 each)

Regular readers of my Indie Friday posts are probably aware that I love Notoriously Morbid, maker of fabulous eyeshadows and lip balm and other things. She recently put out a collection of new blushes, and of course I want to try all of them because oooooh pretty colors. I actually picked up samples of "Necromany" and "Osteomancy" (her contour and highlight shades, respectively), but I still haven't had a chance to try them. Have you tried any of these blushes? What did you think?

6.  Madame Scodioli/ScodioliCreative - Farewell Soap Bar ($8)
I'll admit that I'm probably being taken in by the packaging more than just a bit here, but this soap just seems so darn elegant. This is a lilac and bergamot scent, and "is a lovely blend, soft and light, with slight notes of mahogany, vanilla and rosewood." So I'm thinking it probably smells good too then, eh?

7. Performance Colors Lipsticks. ALL OF THEM. ($6 each or 3/$12)
Performance Colors is one of those indie companies I've heard lots of good things about, but still never tried. Their shade selection seems to be a bit "safer" than some indie shops (lots of reds/pinks/purples, no green or yellow or anything). But that makes it tougher to choose—a lot of them look really pretty! If I had to pick just one right now I'd probably go for SHOWDOWN. Or not. Ahhhh! They do have a 3/$12 deal, which makes trying a few at a time less burdensome.


Like some of the stuff on my wishlist? Well as I said above, I'll be giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky reader—more than enough to pick up one of these lovelies!

  2. There is so much that I love on Etsy. I saw a lip balm called "Unicorn Farts" and thought it would be the perfect stocking stuffer! Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Haha yes! I think my BF could use some Unicorn Farts on his face. :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. What a fun giveaway! I've been addicted to etsy for years and years now! I love getting unique gifts for friends and family so it's a great place to do that. :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love the accessory pillows on Etsy. There are so many to choose from, and amazing prices!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh man, there is SO MUCH amazing stuff on Etsy, I wouldn't even know where to begin with my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm always on ETSY looking at one thing or another - I tend to go from one thing to another. Last night I seen some amazing Halloween Mason Jars from MagicOwlDesigns.

    ReplyDelete
  8. How funny! I totally posted a wishlist post today too! XD

    ReplyDelete
  9. PS I just tried commenting on your post ... not sure if you have auto-approval turned off but I think my comment might have been eaten by your spam filter. That's been happening to me a lot on WordPres blogs lately for some reason. :(

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay I thought I was the only person that was happening to! I just checked and it was in spam. I don't know what's up with wordpress comments, but it's been spamming me on every blog.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think they end up changing their algorithms or whatever to more aggressively target actual spam, and it ends up causing a lot of false positives from real, well-meaning people like us. :) It's been happening to me on Disqus lately too. Usually I just e-mail their support team when it happens, but it can take a bit to get it resolved. Very frustrating!

  12. Nick Cage earrings?! so funny - great lookbook..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Actually I'm not really on Etsy that much (even though after looking at your giveaway I feel like I should be) but what I really want to try out is a couple of indie nail polish shops, especially those with the thermal polish that changes colors according to temperature. They look so cool! Plus the earring shop you featured has a few things I have my eye on (Sushi earrings seem like they should be a staple part of my wardrobe!)

    ReplyDelete
  14. That card is BOSS!! I've been eyeing some cheap but supercute doggy post-its. They're like a dollar but then it's another $3 for shipping. I'm almost about to say it's worth the shipping because, CUTE PUPPIES!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yesssss! There are tons of indie polishes I want too. Too many things for one list. And yeah, the food earrings are adorable! I was especially amused by the sushi, pizza and avocado ones. Probably because those are the foods I would most like to eat right now. :P

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ahhh so cute! Don't tell that seller I told you (shh) but I bet you could find stuff like that on eBay for cheap. Search "dog sticky notes" or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I spend HOURS on Etsy. Ahhh.
    Those Nick Cage earrings are awesome. The Tina Belcher ones are actually on my own lust list, haha.
    Love that cheesy card, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Haha yes to the Tina earrings! I debated mentioning those too but I didn't want to have a list of 50 names, lol. They have so many good ones!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nicolas Cage earrings? GIMME. I would wear them and act as crazy as he did in Face/Off. (Blame it on the C-c-c-c-c-cage.)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha yes! Wearing pictures of a celebrity whilst impersonating them seems like a highly entertaining way to spend time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hah, I wanted the mold card, too! I was thinking for Cheese Weasel Day.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thermal polishes are neat, but my nails are usually so short that they are always the warm color on me unless. I put an ice cube on my finger. For polish on etsy, I particularly love Digital Nails and Different Dimension.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love Etsy, but I don't often buy from it because the international shipping costs are killer!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  30. Some fantastic picks. I know someone who'd love those Nick Cage earrings, but I'm more into trying new indie lipsticks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favorite thing to shop for on etsy is martingale collars for my greyhound, but they are so expensive! It's mostly online window shopping. :x

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for making me look up Cheese Weasel Day. Learning new stuff, woo-hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd just wear the Nic Cage earrings whilst sporting my new purple indie lipstick. With some strong floral indie perfume thrown on for good measure. And a knit hat. I've never bought a hat off Etsy, but I'm certain that one can.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I do a lot of window shopping too because, you know ... bills and stuff. Doesn't hurt to look though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really cool give away! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

    I like getting steampunk items on Etsy :D (also, if I've entered twice, I didnt mean to. I can't tell if doing it on my phone works or not because every time I get to the computer it tells me I haven't done any of it).

    ReplyDelete
  39. https://www.etsy.com/shop/rachelspetpaintings is my favorite. Her paintings are outstanding!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Maybe you're logged into Rafflecopter with a different email address on your phone? Anyway, when I check the entries later I'll just delete any duplicates from you (if there are any) so thanks for the heads-up!

  50. I didn't know you could do that but that's very cool! Awesome suggestion. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've noticed that a bunch of indie sellers use lip-balm type packaging ... you can get empty lipstick bullet tubes in bulk, but of course they're much more expensive and probably more difficult to fill. I think the Performance Colors lippies are supposed to be fairly moisturizing anyway though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. yeah I'm sure they are much more expensive than the plastic lip balm packaging.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thank you! :)
