My past Etsy weeks (nearly 2) & GIVEAWAY =D

This will be a monster post with like 6798067587 pics so my apologies to those who have a slower connection!
Since my last Etsy post I received quite a bunch of more stuff but I had no time to post pics yet! I also received quite a bit stationery from Etsy and Gmarket =)

So here (sorted by sellers) are my newest goodies:

-Bvann:
I spotted this beautiful hobo bag made from the cute Japanese deer fabric in a pretty muted red and heavy duty blue denim and fell in love instantly! It's the first bag I found on Etsy that's really huge, stylish AND made from Japanese fabric =D So now I can tote around everything I want and still have space for more!
The bag is very sturdy and well made with a very strong metal zipper. There is a handle at the zipper which helps a lot with zipping open =D
The seller is a man who sounds like an interesting person =) (read his profile!)


-Thlenthanh:
I got another wallet from her because I loved the cute cat print fabric! I also think the lining fabric fits perfectly. I also got a cute little black charm (a lucky cat).
This time I paid US$5 more (US$23 & shipping) to get the bifold pocket wallet with an extra bill pocket and I think it's worth paying the extra bucks to have a bill pocket.


-Siamsquare:
I found more items in this favorite shop and as always her work is just impeccable! This lady is so talented!
I got a super pretty huge pouch (this is for my Egypt trip end of the month, i'll use this for skincare mostly), a pretty hedgehog wallet (a huge one!), a quilted box pouch (the same style as the cinamoroll pouch I got from her some time ago as the size/style is so convenient to store makeup inside), a matching small purse and a small box pouch with polka dots! All fabrics are Japanese =P
There will be a giveaway/special promo from Siamsquare soon! So stay tuned =)


-Simbiosisbyjulia:
The final load of pouches from her sale arrived over the week. I purchased tons of pouches and a pencil pouch. Don't think I am crazy, those aren't all for me of course =P
You can also win one so read at the end of this post for the details!
As always all pouches are of excellent quality/craftsmanship and the fabrics (all Japanese) are so sweet!


-3point5dollars:
I got some more gift bags, deco tapes, pencils and a file folder featuring San-X's La Petite Rose (I wonder if she's the girlfriend of Palette from San-X's Palette's Sweet Street? hehe)


I also got 2 loads of stationery from Gmarket (seller btoffice). The stuff was so cheap I couldn't believe it hehe =D I got truckloads of feltpens, highlighters, pens and other stuff. The feltpens were for the kids and I ordered more for their friends' birthdays (some asked if I can get them the same scented pens hehe).
The items are all of excellent quality despite their cheap prices! The stationery we get here is mostly from Germany thus more expensive and the Korean stuff is really a steal compared to them (+ way cuter hehe).
I purchased multiples of most itemd but the pics often just shows 2 or 3 pieces =)

These scented feltpens are so popular among the kids! The 2 metallic pens (silver & gold) are permanent markers, the others are scented feltpens! (8x)


Also got these cute feltpens with the bear (5x)


The highlighters are for me (I need them by the dozens really! 1 book to learn eats easily 5 or 6 of them!). I bought 2 of the cute duos with the kitties and 5 packs of the Power ones.


Some pencils (4 packs = 40 pencils):


I also think these highlighters are cool! They're like a transparent fluorescent crayon! How cool is that? (1 pack - 12 pcs)


Some colorful permanent markers (and a pack of glittery gel pens - 1x each):


Super fine pens (1x - 10 pcs pack):


Pastels (1x 48 colors)


And this desk organizer (cost about US$7 or so) came chock full of stuff!


And look! Cute Miffy pens (3x 10 pcs)! They are scented and write very smoothly! Love them! Want a set, too? You can win one! Check below for details!


GIVEAWAY: I am giving away this cute "French Cafe" pouch from simbiosisbyjulia, filled with tons of Korean skincare samples! In addition the lucky winner will receive a pack of 10 scented Miffy pens! 10 cute colors ideal for writing, sketching, drawing etc.!
