Do you have any sellers you use for teacher gifts?

Like Geeky, etsy is my go-to for gifts for nearly everyone, definitely for every female in my life. I mostly buy jewelry for everyone, but I've also bought things like coasters and pottery.

I'm fixing to buy my best friend a little succulent container garden from etsy for her b-day. She just bought a house and one of her goals is to have a rock/succulent garden, so I thought this little container garden would be a cute way to reinforce that I'm on board and ready to help with the big garden when she's ready. Plus it's really pretty.

You can narrow it. I don't want to look at baby stuff, so I put -baby, -kid, etc. in the search engine.

I've never bought teacher gifts, I just always give them American Express gift cards. Generally I buy jewelry and I try to find things that will suit the recipient, so I don't use specific sellers so much as browse till something catches my eye.

I loooove Etsy. I've purchased more things there than I care to admit. My 4 favorite shops are...
pdxbeanies - super cute crocheted hats
vmjess - pretty camera straps
bayanhippo - really affordable bags/purses from Turkey
atouchofstardust - purses. I got my favorite Etsy purchase here.

^That's really cute.

Mar, if you don't mind the asking, what are you going to be selling?

Can I put -fuzzy unicorn horns and -boob earrings? Because there seems to be an awful lot of that kind of thing.

I love etsy and have gotten some really great things, but the range of quality and weirdness is just so wide open that shopping is time consuming and frustrating.

I like browsing through it but you do find some wacky stuff on there sometimes.
ex: why on earth would you name your soap my poop does not stink?

I got a really cool stamped necklace for Christmas, there is a long drama-filled story that goes along with it, but I won't get into it. I didn't ask, but she bent over backwards for me. She rocks!

Off to check out some of the other suggested shops...

I didn't want to start a new thread on this minor occurrence, but I made my first Etsy purchase and I am so excited! Not haircare related even!

I am absolutely obsessed.
I bought two necklaces, a purse, a coin/ID purse, a cellphone/iPod pouch and Pandora like beads.

Another Etsy fan here I try not to visit there too often because I just want to spend too much money!

Some sites I've purchased from:
spiralstone (I bought the spiral earrings)
19 moons (love the steampunk jewelry)
strungoutdesigns
St Joshua (more steampunk)
jewelrystill (love the earring holders)

and my pièce de résistance:
Steamed Glass, who makes these terrariums to order:

I would love the links to check out the cellphone/iPod case & pandora beads, if you don't mind sharing those.

I recently got this hair barrette thingy from Etsy. It's fairly large...makes a bun or a half-up. I love copper.
