Etsy is the best!

A few weeks back I joined the "Needful Things Dark Trading Team" on etsy and I gotta say it's been A LOT of fun.  The whole group is centered around "trading goods" so if you are an etsy seller (or buyer) you should check us out and get involved. Since I joined I've been able to not only trade my jewelry for fantastic handmade products, but meet many other members of the team; all of which have been super friendly! It's a great social networking tool also, if you are looking to integrate into the etsy community. We play games, have chats and get involved in BNRS/TNRS too! Plus it's a great way to get some Xmas presents knocked out too! Check us out here: Needful Things Dark Trading Team

Here's a list of some of my fellow team mates/ favorite shops!

Sara Ellis of Ghastly Governess makes cute jewelry items and fantastic art pieces. If you love creepy dolls and gothic jewelry this is the place for you. Let's look at a few items now, shall we?
