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.

Not Just Boards 
When I saw those shoes linked to on twitter, I had to post them on tumblr, pin them and post them here. Luckily there were plenty of other great ouija themed items to share with them.

Artifact Garage

Eclectic Mechanisms 
All pieces by  ArtifactGarage
 What great additions to a desk...of course I think I would manage to injure myself with them.

From the artist in response to my fear of injury:   
You chance of injuries are minimal. I electronically reduced the voltage and current where you can safely stop the blades from turning with your hand. I don't recommend doing it, but you can. The blades are delicate and you might break them.
The end result is a gentle whisper of air across your face with virtually no noise.

They sound like the perfect accessory now, don't they ?

JW Kinseys Artifice

The Lamps of Josh Kinsey 
 i got an email the other day pointing me toward these amazing steampunk lamps. They're not on etsy, but they are certainly handmade with great skill. You can find them at www.jwkinseysartifice.com under light fixtures, but be sure to peruse the other sections on the site because there is a lot of eye candy.

On a related note, if you make something awesome that you think the Wunderkammer might like, shoot me an email, the address in is my profile. No promises of course, but it couldn't hurt to share.

After I did Asian steampunk I just wasn't done with the aesthetic, so here's more of a Gothic bent.

Black Velvet

This look is sometimes called steamgoth. I'm just such a black person, that I don't care what it would be called, I love it.

Space Age

Things that are futuristic yet at the same time a little bit from the past. I won't lie, this is totally inspired by the recent physics news that has me thinking about the whole Universe.

July The 4th
Not surprisingly it's pretty hard to find nation specific patriotic steampunk goods, but I found a few neat pieces to celebrate the 236th.
