What do you buy on Etsy?

We share with others what we have for sale in our shops, but what about our purchases? What have you been buying? I thought I'd share with you some of the latest things I've bought. From 808Sunshine I got these beautiful bits of sea glass. Well, I really haven't gotten them yet-they just been shipped-they're coming to me all the way from Hawaii! I just love the look of beach glass. I used to collect it on the beaches of the Great Lakes-but since I didn't have any of my own I decided to buy some. I can't wait to use it in some necklaces that I'm planning to make! From one of my favorite shops on Etsy, StoneMe, I got these wonderful striped beach stones from the shores of Lake Michigan. This is the place to go for quality drilled beach stones. I am always pleased with my purchases! If you love Petoskey stones like I do-check out this listing for this Petoskey Stone Combo but just be warned-I have it marked as one of my favorites! I With over 2200 sales and a 100% percent good rating-you know this shop is doing it right! From beadsogemstone I got these beautiful aqua blue Chalcedony drops. I think I might use them as focal pieces with my beach glass! This was the first time I purchased from this supplier. I'm usually a little leery about buying from new shop-but hey we all were there once. He just started in December of 2009 and hadn't gotten much feedback yet, and on top of that the shop's in India! But I figured I'd give it a try! I wish I has taken a picture of the packaging. I was so impressed! the package came from India in a hand sewn fabric covered box complete with sealing wax on the seams! I felt like I got delivered the royal jewels. I wonder what my postman thinks? So what have you been buying? I hope you post one of your latest buys! If you haven't bought anything lately-what would you buy? I've got a big list of things I heart!

  3. Like you, I mostly buy supplies off Etsy (for now, I have big dreams for the day I have a little more money to throw around), but I couldn't resist these little jars of jelly. I can't pass up new flavors I've never experienced, and dandelion (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=25762661) and birch beer (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=25762662) are definitely new to me.
