Shop Small This Christmas With Elysium Designs, Sarah Burns Prints, Goossens Bags and Perfectly Fine Charms!

In today’s edition of the Etsy Shop Small series I’m currently running on my blog I’m going to be telling you about four amazing Etsy Shops! Perfectly Fine Charms, Goossens Bags, Sarah Burns Prints and Elysium Designs! (The shop names are a hyperlink throughout this post, so if at any time you decide you absolutely must visit the shop immediately all you have to do is click on Perfectly Fine Charms, Goossens Bags, Sarah Burns Prints or Elysium Designs!)

The order that the shops appear was picked at random from a hat and in no way reflects my preference for either shop.

The first shop I want to tell you about is the delightful Perfectly Fine Charms!

Perfectly Fine Charms is owned and run by 33-year-old Nicola!

Nicola started Perfectly Fine Charms in November 2014 after she started to receive a large number of orders from friends and family for her unique creations and her shop just took off from there!

All of the items in Perfectly Fine Charms are handmade by Nicola and can be completely customised if you’d like!

I personally find all of the items in Perfectly Fine Charms to be beautiful, unique and delightfully sparkly! Perfect for any special occasion or even just a regular night when you just need that bit of extra sass with your drink! 

I’ve picked two items from Perfectly Fine Charms that I want to share with you all today but there are of course a multitude of other items in Nicole’s store so please head over and check it out when you’re finished here!

The first item I’ve chosen to show you is this super festive Christmas wine glass charm! They’re actually sold as a set of 6 which is fantastic for the price, they’ll look lovely on your glasses on Christmas day and could be reused for any Christmas parties that you may have as well!

The colour of these charms can be changed to suit your Christmas theme! Prices for 6 of these charms start from £10 – click here to view it in Perfectly Fine Charms!

The second item that I want to show you from Perfectly Fine Charms is this super cute bottle bangle!

I thought this bangle would make a lovely accessory to any bottle of bubbly that you were giving to the Bride & Groom! It’s such a lovely personal touch to what can often be seen as such a simple and safe present!

The colours of the charm can be customised to match the wedding theme and you could even have Nicole make you some wine glass charms to match!

Prices for this bottle bangle start from £5 – click here to view it in Perfectly Fine Charms!

Perfectly Fine Charms ships worldwide.

The next shop I want to tell you about is the marvellous Goossens Bags!

Goossens Bags is owned and run by 44 year old Mum of 3 Lisbeth Goossens!

Lisbeth opened her Etsy store in May 2014, the day she registered as self-employed! As somebody who registered as self-employed this year I can totally relate to how exciting that must have been!

Lisbeth started a soft furnishing course in 2013 (before which she’d never touched a sewing machine!) she started making bags in January 2014 after her daughter was struggling to find a bag she liked and as they say the rest is history! If I can quote directly from one of my emails from Lisbeth “it just clicked between me and my sewing machine/”

So yes as you guessed it all items in Goossens Bags are handmade by Lisbeth! They ship worldwide and they are FABULOUS!

I seriously struggled to pick just 2 bags from Goossens Bags but here are my absolute favourite bags:

The first is this retro pin up print bag featuring an awesome sailor pin up girl! I am obsessed with anything that is retro and especially anything pin up! This is such a beautiful bag and would make a beautiful gift for just about anybody!

GB1

Prices for this bag start from £26.50 – Click here to view it in Goossens Bags!

The next item I want to show you is this awesome Pop Art print bag! This is such a beautiful and unique bag! I love this size of this bag, it’s different and yet still practical for daily life!

GB2

Prices for this bag start from £31.50 – Click here to view this item in Goossens Bags!

I’m a big believer in individuality and being unique and I feel like Goossens Bags gives you the perfect opportunity to subtly inject your individuality into any outfit.

The next shop I want to tell you about is the fantastic Sarah Burns Prints!

Sarah Burns Prints is owned by 21-year-old Sarah Burns, she opened her shop in March 2015 when she was struggling to find work as a junior graphic designer after completing her degree.

Sarah Burns Prints started out by selling greetings cards along with Sarah’s freelance graphic design work but now Sarah Burns Prints sells stationary, cards as well as other design related items!

I’m a huge stationary junkie, especially when it comes to unique stationary and I absolutely love Sarah’s shop!

All Items in Sarah Burns Prints are handmade by Sarah and can be customised if you’d like!

I’ve picked two of my favourite items from Sarah’s store to show you here today!

The first is this awesome geometric print notebook! I love this print, I doodle constantly and that’s the reason I loved this notebook, because I can just imagine all of the things I could doodle on the cover, endless fun for me! These notebooks come in a wide variety of colours and patterns though so if you’re not a doodler like I am then I’m sure you can find another pattern to suit your needs in Sarah Burns Prints!

I think these notebooks would make a quirky stocking filler for any stationary lover and also provide a great way to stand out from the crowd and their boring notebooks in school, college or anywhere else!

Prices for this awesome notebook start from just £4! Click here to view this item in Sarah Burns Prints.

The second item I want to show you made me laugh so much, it’s this ‘Obligatory Christmas Card’! We all have at least one person that we have to send an obligatory card too, you know its obligatory, they know it’s obligatory so why not turn it into a joke and send them this hilarious card!

SBP2

Prices for this fantastic card start from £1.70 – click here to view this item in Sarah Burns Prints.

Sarah Burns Prints ships worldwide.

The final shop I want to tell you about is the lovely Elysium Designs!

Elysium Designs is owned by 29-year-old work at home Mum of 3 Carla!

Elysium Designs opened on Etsy in September 2015 but Carla has been trading a lot longer in local craft fayres and shops!

Carla is entirely self-taught and all of the jewellery in Elysium Designs is handmade by her unless stated otherwise, she takes custom orders and is completely happy to produce orders around what you’d like!

Elysium Designs sells some truly beautiful pieces, I struggled to pick just two to show you but I did, here are my top 2 picks from Elysium Designs!

Both of the items I’ve picked from Elysium Designs are from Carla’s Jewels of Legends range, this is a fabulous range of unique handmade jewellery and each piece comes with its own legend written by Carla, how awesome is that?! I’ve never seen jewellery that comes with its own story before but I absolutely love the idea! It turns a fabulous jewellery gift into so much more than a fabulous jewellery gift!

The first item is this divine red heart locket! This locket is The Heart of Anne Lovelock and if you want to hear Anne’s interesting story then you’ll have to purchase the locket!

ED1

Prices for this gorgeous necklace start from £30 – click here to view the item in Elysium Designs!

The next item I want to show you is this stunning Rainbow Moonstone necklace! Once again this necklace comes with its own legend! This really is a beautiful necklace that would look great with any outfit for any occasion!

ED2

Prices for this exquisite necklace start from £35 – Click here to view the item in Elysium Designs!

I really do think that both of these items would make amazing gifts this Christmas!
