Wonderful Wonderful Etsy

Described by Wikipedia as a "social commerce site," Etsy is effectively an enormous online craft and collectors' fair and is a remarkable source of Wonderlandian goodies. Type "Alice in Wonderland" into the search box and you are presented with an embarrassment of riches. Jewellery, clothing, craft items and ornaments comprise just a few of the Alice treasures available and many a happy hour can be wasted simply browsing the wealth of merchandise. Below are just a few examples.

This charming print is produced by JunkerJane and is available in her delightful shop.

UntamedMenagerie's shop will make you one of these fantastic Alice quote necklaces and has many other items ideal for the dedicated Wonderlander.

These technicolour mushrooms come from Stemellina Supplies.

We think these Alice and Mad Hatter shadow puppets from IsabellasArt are gorgeous (and we want to play with them.)

The Mad Tea-Party Text Block is very stylish and TheAviary has several different Alice designs to choose from.

We are captivated by this insane looking Cheshire Mohawk Cat (as well as all the other crazy creatures at Zeropumpkin Studio.)

Etsy provides an amazing platform for individual craftswomen and men across the globe and, in a world of industrialised mass production and homogeneity, is surely deserving of our support. And whether you are shopping or just browsing, it is a never-ending source of wonder and delight.
