A little over a week ago, Etsy Australia hosted their first Christmas pop up market. For those of you who don’t know, Etsy is like eBay, but for mostly handmade or vintage and unique things. I personally have only bought frankens (home-made nail polish) and a Harry Potter sticker thing for my laptop (which I lost T_T) there, but I decided to go there and see some of the stores in person, since you know, it’s different when you can actually have a closer look at things before you buy them.
How freaking adorable is this little cloud trinket dish?! I definitely would want things like once I get my own place (which is never ’cause I suck at saving), but for now, if I get cute things like this, I know I’ll just end up stacking them in the corner of my room and they will never see the light of day.
These were some wacky cards, they were $5 each I think, I wanted to buy some but there were too many to choose from LOL #firstworldproblems
This looks super cool right?! But $180 is a bit out of my budget at the moment.

Seriously, after looking at these, how can any guy just buy ties from a store?! There were literally hundreds of choices, next time I need a present idea, I’ll definitely have a look at OTAA!
There was also a photo booth there, with some fun Christmas props for you to play around with, the photo was emailed directly, yay for saving paper! 😀

This was a fun market, but a lot of things was out of my price range unfortunately. I didn’t end up purchasing anything, but I still had a good time browsing around. Etsy has definitely grown rapidly over the last couple of years, I will try to venture out and buy something exciting next time, possibly from one of the 35 stalls that attended the first ever Etsy Night Out.
