Hello Etsy

by 2 April 08, 2013

Preface: If any of you reading this have no idea what Etsy is, open a new tab and change your life: etsy.com. It’s an online craft fair/ vintage shop/ dream-come-true.  Do you need post earrings in the shape of your dog? Someone on Etsy makes them. Do you need an enormous blue stained-glass portrait of Elvis? It’s waiting for you on Etsy. How about a sweatshirt with a cat reading a book on it? You need that, and it’s on Etsy. Ok now go. You’re welcome.

cat sweatshirt This week I wanted to recognize one of my favorite spring trends, the mid-finger ring. This idea lead me, of course, straight to my Etsy app and to my new-found favorite Etsy shop, NewYork2LA. Michelle, the shop’s owner, offers designs that are simple and elegant and even sometimes quirky. According to her profile: "I'm a New Yorker living a dream life in Los Angeles.  I lived four years in Florence, Italy after obtaining a BFA in Fine Arts.  My work reflects my travels and interests in new, fashion forward designs.  I love my collection and hope you will too.  Thanks for shopping and supporting the artist community."


Along with the mid-finger rings (which I ordered in the chevron stackable and the little white bow), she also sells regular rings, earrings, and bracelets. Her prices are totally reasonable and – get this – she offers free shipping in the US. Oh and extra bonus points because her fingernails are always looking fly.

 A big thanks to Michelle, as well as to the folks at the kinshipgoods etsy shop (who are so awesomely responsible for that killer cat sweatshirt).
