I usually do this around Christmas time, but these shops all have awesome year-round items (unlike me, although I am leaning more toward plushies and patterns lately, which are totally rad all the time). I've also been painfully bad at blogging the last several months, and this gives me a nice reason to make a post, right? lulz ;-)
So here goes...check out these freakin' cool Etsy sellers and buy stuff from them because they're cool people selling cool stuff. Get someone a unique gift or treat yo self! Don't buy stuff from Walmart, buy stuff from these real life humans instead! Give your money to real life hoomans! DO IT.
Touch of Gaea
Handmade goods with a botanical twist!
Touch of Gaea specializes in these really neat, trendy leather cuff bracelets with engraved metal. There's a good variety in stock at this second and you can specify if you need a different size! To make the cuffs even cooler, each comes with an essential oil of your choice that can be applied to the leather.

EDIT: My friend who runs Tough of Gaea wanted me to add that she's a sarcastic eccentric showing crazy Hallmark tendencies with these bracelets.
Unique shiny things!
An exceptionally awesome friend of mine just started Mercat Curiosities, so it's totally brand new. She sells vintage jewelry that she picks up on various adventures as well as handmade, beaded jewelry from beads she collects from all over as well.
She has a lot of very cool chunky necklaces, some flashy off-the-wall stuff as well as timeless, sophisticated pieces. Literally, something for everyone. She has a lot of especially cool polished stone items and some eccentric happy-colored skull bead items as well.

Adults Are Kids Too
Silly prints, notecards, other nerdy oddities!
The eclectic shop, Adults Are Kids Too, features hilariously cute things. I'm not even sure how to describe or explain what's going on. These some art prints, mixed media home decor like this beautiful R2D2 felt embroidery and perler bead masterpiece. Just go there and look at the stuff. Seriously.
