Buying and selling craft

I have spent loads of time online shopping this week but only have two things to show for the hours I've spent on folksy and other online stores. There are so many lovely handmade things it's hard to decide what to buy.

My first purchase this week was a lovely dark brown leather phone case from Evie who runs Milomade on folksy. It's custom made for my phone with my choice of dark brown leather and teal stitching.



I love it! I only ordered it Wednesday and it had arrived by Saturday morning, that is great service. It's perfect, so thanks Evie. Check out Evie's shop
Milomade for similar items and other great stuff.

I have also been online looking for things to buy a good friend for a birthday present. After hours of searching i decided to buy something rather lovely from Notes, can't tell you what it is yet as i haven't given it to her. This is the kind of thing that Notes sells. A lovely clutch purse made with Amy Butler’s Martini in Mustard fabric.



Also getting her something else made but that's top secret for now, will post about it next week.

So that is the buying now to the selling. I had my first sale from my shop on Coriandr.com. I haven't spent much time on the forums or on my shop but am pleased to have sold one thing on there. I'm also pleased as it was a blank pen pot to sew your own buttons on, as much as i love sewing them on I'm also happy for someone else to do it! There are still more in stock if anyone is interested!
