A Taste of Etsy's Holiday Handmade Cavalcade in Brooklyn

On Saturday, I swung by the Etsy Holiday Handmade Cavalcade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to check out items from artists that have a unique perspective on everything from clocks to light switches. Especially with the holiday season among us, it's always helpful for me to discover gift ideas that are super special. And Etsy is always one of my go-to websites when it comes to shopping, so I just had to attend this event. Enjoy my pics.

New York Clocks offers battery-operated clocks designed out of boxes, book covers, postcards and tins. Clever, right?

I live for a pretty light switch cover. It's one of the little things that I don't think should be overlooked when decorating a home. I ended up buying these two from Lovely Day Designs for $12 each. 

Pretty bamboo scarves and baby blankets courtesy of Fiber Dance Weaving Studio (sorry the company's website is inactive). Her textiles felt so very soft. 

Fritz & Fraulein iPad and laptop cases made from men's suits at none other than Barneys New York. Although I especially loved the cases, only a certain kind of guy would appreciate accessories like these. You know what I mean.
