My love affair with Etsy began a few years back when I was decorating my son’s superhero room. Etsy became my go-to site for unique decor, and as I searched for items, I discovered amazing shop after amazing shop. As the years have gone on, I have turned to Etsy for everything from party invitations to home decor to cosplay pieces and so much more. Recently, I discovered three new shops that I have to share because their items are geek-tastic!
I discovered Novel Creations on Twitter and totally fell for all of their stunning and eye-catching book purses. Each of their purses is made from a real book. For a book lover like me, this accessory was a must have. Recently, I worked with the creative mind behind the designs, Karen, to create a custom piece. When it arrived, I was blown away by how it turned out. From the moment I opened the package, I could tell Novel Creations is all about the details and presentation. My purse was nicely wrapped in paper with a wax seal. Almost didn’t want to open it. After the paper was off, the little girl in me came out as I saw my finished WICKED purse and started doing a happy dance. The whole experience with Novel Creations was great and I recommend that everyone take a few minutes to visit this shop.
There are so many amazing crafty and artsy people on Twitter. Like the last shop, I also found Unique Chic Bowtique on Twitter. This geeky Etsy shop offers a diverse collection of nerdy and pop culture themed bows. Each bow design can be wore either as a hair bow or as a bow tie. These fun accessories are a simple way to show love for a fandom or subject. I recently purchase a Science Class themed bow for my science geek daughter and she loved it. The bow was well constructed and the fabric pattern was a perfect mix of scientific instruments. With all the variety of patterns they offer, I recommend taking a look.
Fan art is one of my favorite types of art! My rec room is filled with fan art. When a friend sent a link to Crafts of a Geeky Mom’s shop, I took a look and had to have one of her pieces. I was looking for a piece to tie all the various fandoms displayed in my room together. When I saw her In This House We Do Geek canvas art, I knew I found what I was looking for. I ordered the piece and when it arrived, my family was so excited. They all loved it. The quality of the vinyl artwork was well-done and the enter buying experience was hassle-free. We often get compliments from friends and family when they see it hanging on the wall. I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality vinyl art.
