Local Etsy Shopping – fave shop No. 1

Big_Etsy_LogoLately I’ve been seeing some fantastic shops on Etsy that are located right here in Victoria, BC. So, I figured I would dedicate a few posts in the next week or so to showing you some of my favourite local Etsy shops and maybe you’ll see something you like too?! My first favourite is called 1001 Treasures.

The graphic artist behind these lovely posters and cards is Sabine who is originally from Germany and now lives right here on Vancouver Island.  She has been selling on Etsy since 2008 (wow!) and her selection of antique style prints is stunning. If you’ve ever watched Sarah Richardson and Tommy sift through botanicals and wanted some for yourself…this is the shop for you! Pics are the Links to her store


I love these antique coral and sea life prints…


And how about the botanicals…

And, don’t go thinking that these are only for stuffy old traditional applications. Here’s a great contemporary example from Tobi Fairley which shows  how antique prints look fantastic in a casual eclectic interior.
