Button Empire...An Etsy Fave...
I *heart* Etsy. If you don't know about Etsy - go check it out! All sorts of talented artisans from all over the world, with their own shops, selling their own wares...it's pure awesomeness. TPP started out that - and is still there (and will be for quite some time!!) - and if you are a fellow crafter/craftinista, Etsy is the most perfect place to start selling your pieces IF you are so inclined.
Okay, enough babbling. What I'm here to talk about is the MOST FUN item I have purchased off Etsy...and it's from Canadian-born: Button Empire. Who knew that it was not only my matramonial pairing that resulted in a crafty chick with a geeky boy? WHO KNEW this was a commonplace occurrence? A 'well-known' fact, if you will???! Well, Button Empire knew!
These are the cutest buttons (which I had made into some kickin' key chains) EVER!! My husband may not feel super comfortable carrying it around - but he is going to have it hanging somewhere visible in his office (okay, his HOME office, but whatever). I freaking love the things!!
Button Empire is not limited to just nerd-love, though, oh no, no noooo! There is love for the Buddha...love for all things handmade, wedding favors, birthday and greeting cards...an amazing assortment of creative wit and fun products.
It's the kind of thing that perks you up even after you realize that it's nearly July and it's 62 degrees outside (barely). :)
Check them out. You won't regret it. Tell them that The Pretty Peacock sent you!!
