Etsy Review: Nothing New Treasures
While reviewing my Etsy feed a few weeks ago, I saw a shop called Nothing New Treasures favorited one of my dresses. I clicked on her cute little picture and absolutely loved her shop, especially her BBC dresses! I immediately emailed her and asked if she'd be interested in trading dress for dress. AND SHE WAS! I was so excited.
Trades are the best part about Etsy. While the main goal of being a seller on Etsy is to sell things, the barter system is pretty fantastic. I've traded many things on Etsy, and I'm rarely disappointed. This dress was even better once I got it on. I LOVE IT! You simply message someone and say, "Do you like what I make? I like what you make, let's trade."
The dress is made from a two pieces of clothing, a skirt and shirt, cut up and repurposed to create a new dress. And the lace applique was hand sewn and makes the whole dress. I wore it to work last Friday and everyone kept asking if I made it. It's so "me" that they couldn't believe it was made by someone else!
The designer, Brittany, lives in the Santa Cruz mountains with her boyfriend and bunny where she runs the gift section of a bookstore and her etsy shop. She recently started sewing clothing and it's definitely something where she excels. In her shop you can also find cute market totes. I can't wait to see what new clothing she creates. And be on the lookout for a future guest post from Brittany.
Zeus helped out with my photo shoot. He kept thinking my little infrared remote was a small treat for him to eat. Sorry dog. Nope. My boyfriend was out of town all weekend so I have my hands full babysitting this big boy. The cats were not pleased.
