New Feature

I've been sellling on Etsy in one capacity or another for the last four years. Over that time I've window shopped many a wonderful Etsy store. If I had more funds you can bet I'd be buying from the plethora of amazing stores far more often. But, given my tight budget, I usually end up "favoriting" all of the shops I find myself drooling over, which has led to 20+ pages of favorite shops. There are so many shops in my favorites catalogue that I someitmes can't find the one that I"m looking for!

So I thought I'd start a new feature on my blog: Every Thursday I'll have an "Etsy Feature". It'll specifically feature an Etsy seller. I'm thinking I'm going to leave it open to all types of Etsy sellers. I might feature a vintage seller one week, a jewelry artisit the next, a furniture designer the following, and so forth and so on.

So, for this week, I bring you, Poaplum, a lovely little jewelry and bags shop.

The lovely woman who runs this shop creates unique but beautiful jewelry creations out of fabric and cardboard. First and foremost, I love the textured, 3-D nature of her work.

This fabric necklace is probably one of my favorite pieces in her shop right now. The best part about it? It can be worn 3 different ways. Also, besides being eco-friendly, her work is pretty easy on the budget. One of her colorful, circular, cardboard Caracol necklaces will only set you back $55. Not bad, if you ask me!

Oh, and this cuff bracelet. Even being made of cardboard it still looks classic, like a piece I'd want to wear every day.

More examples of her work:

To quote her from her profile on Etsy: "“Eco-friendly”, fun, practical, and most of all, original, that is how I want my work to be!"

Take a stroll on over to her shop and get yourself one of her amazing one-of-a-kind pieces!


  1. What a great idea! I've been after organising my favourites for ages now, and this sounds like a great way to give wonderful artists some well-deserved exposure as well as give a reasonably easy catalogue system. I often rediscover my own favourites just by scrolling through old entries.

  2. Yes, I'm hoping to re-discover some old favorites as well!
