6 on Saturday - Edition 10

Each and every Saturday, I enjoy the honor of featuring new, undiscovered and underdiscovered shops on Etsy in the spirit of community and to share some great new talent and finds with all of my readers. I find these shops in all kinds of ways - browsing for items, reading the forums, through the teams I belong to, and some are suggested by the shopowners themselves or through other people who bring them to my attention. I'm happy to share these great shops with you, and hopefully give them a little leg-up on their entrepreneurial journey!

Here are today's 6 on Saturday :)

Ramon from RDCwoodworking joined Etsy last summer with a great new concept in fashionable jewelry storage that he calls "jewelry furniture", and I have to say, it's kinda cute! If you're tired of the somewhat old fashioned simple jewelry boxes or armoires, or you're looking for something truly unique to store your bling in, you can choose from jewelry vanities, jewelry roll top desks, and even a jewelry chaise (with the storage underneath) that's fit for a queen.  Check RDCwoodworking out - and see if one of his designs would be a perfect compliment to your boudoir decor!

We learned earlier this week that our next grandchild will be a little girl, so Grandma's getting in baby shopping mode - and I love sweet little booties and mitts for newborns. Bulgarian fiber artisan Ralitza from BubaBuba may be an actress and musician by day, but her creativity sure doesn't end there.  Her infant and toddler mitts look soooo soft and silky, and wonderfully well made. Stop by her shop if you're in the market for a baby shower present or something sweet for a new addition to your own family - and share her work with anyone else who may be! You might also find some lovely home decor items there on occasion!

While in some social circles, I might be considered a "shiksa" since I was a gentile who married into a Jewish family (and to boot, I'm blonde, lol), I probably stay on top of the traditions and values even more closely than my husband.  Judaism is a beautiful religion and culture, its roots going back to the dawn of religion itself, and the traditions and symbolism continue to be time honored through shops like SimplyJudaica.  This shop, run by two sisters, is dedicated to people of the Jewish Faith, and everything you will find there is handmade by them. From holiday decor for your next Seder table, to lovely aprons, and even some great gifting and baby items, the shop is rich with beautifully made items that will warm your spirit.

Golden Thread Design (marinalubomirsky) is not your run-of-the-mill art shop. While artist owner Marina's work may look like paintings, they are actually needle felted 'wool paintings.' All of the designs are originals, many based on her favorite photographs or inspirations from life, brought to a new form of artistry. Wouldn't one of these look wonderful in one of your favorite spaces?  Stop by marinalubomirsky and consider one of these unique and beautiful pieces of art for your next decor purchase!

There are many brides out there who are planning those June weddings and shopping around for items to add the final touches to their special days. KandKFloralandDesign to the rescue! No matter what you might need - from card holders to wedding favors, silk florals to specially designed gift wrap ideas, and everything in between, shop owner Carolyn Koslowsky is ready to help you by designing something perfect with your tastes in mind.  KandKFloralandDesign isn't limited to weddings either - it's a shop "For all the seasons of your life."  Stop by today and check it out!

My vintage shop pick for today is RSRenew (Shady Nook Vintage). Shop owner Roxi resides in Florida and simply loves having the opportunity to share her vintage finds with the world.  RSRenew  has a lovely selection of vintage goodies - primarily housewares and kitchen ware with a few interesting odds and ends.. Stop by and give this shop some love - you may just find something from the past that you'd love to add to your future!

That's it for this "6 on Saturday" feature. As always, if you're just starting out or know of a shop that is and would enjoy a feature, introduce me to the shop and you may find it featured in one of my future 6 on Saturday features. Use the "Contact Me" option in the menu bar at the top of the page and send me the links!

Best of luck to these un- and underdiscovered shops - and happy shopping to you all!!
