I love Etsy.  It's the best place to find anything and everything that's vintage or handmade.
Here are some of my favorite shops.

Transit Design
Personalized canvas bus rolls, tram banners and subway signs make a stylish addition to your home or a memorable gift. Michael J Watt's original bus scrolls combine vintage feel with a custom element to personalize your artwork.

Fashioned after historic destination blinds used in buses, subways and trams. Each piece is made-to-order, carefully laid out and printed with UV protected ink on high quality canvas. You won’t find comparable pricing for such well designed custom pieces.

Blue Bird Heaven
Unique hand-crafted objects from the reuse of antique printers drawers, to picture frames, and many wallpapered items!
Printer drawer jewelry displays is an original idea and a fine handcrafted speciality item that can be customized to hold your accessories. Any other custom orders can be created upon request!

Kettle Confections
Our French nougat candies are made in New York with our distinct recipe. We combine the best of confectionery techniques with the finest all natural ingredients to make this very special treat. Our Nougats have a fresh taste and soft texture similar to freshly made Nougat de Montelimar bars of France. We re-create this classic candy with new and interesting flavors. Impress your guests by using our gourmet Nougats in wedding favors, parties, or just simply indulge in them as a culinary treat to yourself.

My Bits and Bobs
ALL of it is genuine and unaltered -- the real thing. Every piece has been naturally smoothed, frosted and shaped by the sand, gravel and surf action of the Mediterranean Sea. I collect it myself from beaches along the southern coast of Spain near my home in Gibraltar. (I'm prejudiced, but I think my seaglass is world class, especially my Seaglass Gems.)
