All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Sticker Shock

The Price On That Was What Now?1. Carousel - mosaicqueen
3. STEAMPUNK BIKE - byChrisAnderson
4. Salome - GrinderMonkeyStudios
I mean no disrespect here. These pieces are most certainly worth the price tags that you will have to click through to see, but I warn you...there might be gasping. I have always tried to feature pieces of all price points here so you can actually shop , but today I think it's just window shopping for most of us. Go ahead, you know you want to see what I'm talking about...click away.

I'm used to going to art galleries, so I thought when I clicked on Salome that I'd have some idea of what the price could be. When I saw the actual price, I actually laughed out loud! Same story for the other pieces. Thanks for the chuckle!

Wow! Apparently, I'm in the altogether wrong industry! I wonder how much the father from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang could get for his stuff? Now, that was some fine work! p.s. I do like the bike a lot, but not THAT much.

Love the second item, the moth pendant. If I had the money, I would pay the asking price for it.

That 'Salome' piece has been marked up, along with most everything else in his store, to 13,000.-
Must be desperate or something. No on e in their right mind would pay what he is asking for most of his leftover art school pieces.
