Poppytalk Handmade Marketplace

Poppy Talk Handmade

I recently discovered this really cute site dedicated to all things handmade.  I’ve loved Etsy for some years now…and Poppytalk Handmade is just as exciting if not more because of the exclusivity of it.  Poppytalk is an online marketplace of handmade and vintage goods.  They rotate the “virtual tables”  monthly. It’s basically Etsy’s “Greatest Hits.”  It’s all very best of the “Handmade” genre.  I love it and I know you will too!

Great Fall Deals

Fall shopping is one of my favorite things about this time of year.  Wait-actually, shopping any time of the year is fun!  I love to shop but, I hardly ever pay full price for anything I buy.  If I don’t have a coupon, or it’s not on sale, buying just doesn’t feel right.  There are so many of us that have been hit hard by the economic downturn, my family included.  I’ve found that since it’s necessary to watch my pennies these days, buying a few accessories here and there has fulfilled my need to spruce up my fall wardrobe without spending a fortune on new sweater dresses and such.

Lately, I’ve been OBSESSED with headbands!  Since I cut my hair short, I’ve been having fun with it.  There are so many cute ones out right now…and they’re pretty cheap.   Here are a few Fall Deals I found around the Net; some accessories for yourself or your home and a few larger pieces that are almost cheap enough to splurge a bit!  Enjoy!
