Etsy haul time again =P (Pic heavy as always!)

This week has been quite successful (Etsy-wise) again =P
From Monday until today I received multiple packages daily =D

I finally got the grand part of my stationery haul (though a big Gmarket parcel which is due to arrive on Friday morning and couple of smaller eBay and Etsy memo pads etc. purchases are still missing).

I wanted to mention that most Etsy sellers wrap their items in cute paper etc. I am just an impatient person and can't wait to see the things so I unwrap them before I take pics =X

As always sorted by sellers:


I ordered here before (and posted about it) and I couldn't resist the other cute tote she had up for grabs. It looks small on the pic but it's actually a large tote (About 15"x12" or 38x30cm). The quality is excellent just like the other totes I got before!


This shop is offering free shipping worldwide! And her pricings are good, too! I got this cute travel wallet/passport or checkbook holder and I really love it! The (Japanese) fabric is really lovely and craftsmanship is fantastic. I really adore this!
Has 4 pockets (2 large ones, 2 card-sized pockets.
She has lots more of these pretty wallets in her store, mostly (if not all) made with Japanese fabrics!


I ordered 2 cute pouches with sweet Japanese deer prints from her sale section. I was the 100th sale she did on Etsy so she sent me a whopping 2 free pouches, a necklace and 2 pretty greeting cards (blank ones) to celebrate this event!
That's really generous considering that my purchase was just worth US$15!
The pouches are really well made, very slim and can hold quite a bit stuff (they are a good size for pencils, sewing stuff, makeup tools (of course hehe)


In this store you can find cute gadget/mobile phone pouches and other bits. I opted for the sweet house-shaped key pouch as it was instant love once I spotted it!
I think the quality of this is excellent and the key pouch works really well. Exactly what I was missing so far!
All fabrics are from Japan.


Yep, another haul from one of my favorite sellers! This time I decided on a padded case for my iphone (yes, I have already iphone sleeves, but since I put my phone in that hardcover case it's too wide and long for the custom-fitted iphone cases so I needed something a little bigger). I love the Japanese Matryoshka fabric, the colors are so sweet!
I also purchased a tiny pouch for the change I keep in my car.


This shop is run by Julia from simbiosisbyjulia, too! Here she is selling a special style of home decor items (not so much variety so far, I am sure she's very busy with her other shop =P). I purchased this lovely wall pocket to keep random papers etc. in place.
Julia is always delivering perfect quality =D
Japanese fabric is used as with most of her items.


If you have a Nintendo DS Lite and are searching for a totally kawaii sleeve (all Japanese fabrics) then have a look in this shop! You can also get pouches for other gadgets and also passport pockets.
I purchased this adorable strawberry sleeve for my future (!) DS Lite I am planning to reward myself with after passing this exam in June/July (I hope I'll pass!) =P As you can see there are also 2 small pockets for DS games or memory cards if you store a cam inside (lol I tucked 2 of the candies I received from Yumeko so you can see the pockets better).
I also got a passport pocket because I loved the combination of fabrics so much!
I am also getting a custom banner/logo designed from her (pssst, that's secret!) so I hope Lotus Palace will look cute, soon!
I think you can see on the pics that these are absolutely well made!


I found out about this seller on Birkinbagbeauty where she posted her beautiful pocket wallet! So I wanted to make use of the free shipping and ordered a wallet made from cute Japanese sheep fabric for myself =D It's mainly for cards (or bills if you fold them) and has also a zippered compartment if you want to tuck some change inside. I got this for my holiday in Egypt as I only take 2 credit cards and some money bills with me when I am there (they hardly use coins).

I got stationery from the following sellers:


-pomadour24 (has stores on eBay and Etsy):
The haul includes 2 letter sets, 1 from Sanrio (Sugarbunnies) and 1 from San-X (Palette's Sweet Street about which I'll be posting later). The letter sets are great value for money! The Sanrio one contains 24 envelopes and 48 writing sheets! The San-X letter set comes with 20 envelopes and 40 sheets. Both contain various designs and were around US$6/each (plus shipping). Very good deal if you ask me!
I don't like those letter sets where you get like 4 envelopes and 8 sheets =P

-chuhome (eBay):
You see that Masyumaro (that cute cat) memo pad? It's so cute! The kitty is nekkid and you get "clothes" to dress him with =D

I will do a post dedicated to the Palette's Sweet Street stationery I got from the 3 seller above (as I took lots of pics so deserves an extra post)
