OK. I'm posting a little early - but only because I'm excited to be doing a feature!
For the first feature shop on my blog, I thought it was perfect to choose the shop that WOWed me when I first became an Etsy member...
DREAMY VINTAGE is a shop that offers jewelry that's both dreamy and vintage or inspired by vintage. In her own words, Didem sells:
"Handmade genuine vintage and vintage inspired jewelry from different eras. Dainty feminine pieces handcrafted with a romantic whimsical touch."
This was the first shop that made me think, "Wow, I love Etsy!" It has such a dreamy, romantic aura that just beams off the computer screen! It's FULL of beautiful pieces with vintage beauty and simplicity. Everything in the shop is priced just right and affordable for gift-giving.
Dreamy Vintage was featured as one of Etsy's Fresh Emerging Shops, and a part of Etsy's GIFT GUIDEs --- That deserves a round of applause!
I made my first Etsy purchase from this shop, and Didem was great every step of the way. At first I wasn't sure that I wanted to become a seller, but having such a great experience with Dreamy Vintage made me want to go ahead and jump into the Etsy world to actually start my home-based small business.
This first picture is of a necklace called the Oracle - A vintage crystal jewel necklace. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Only $25, can you believe it?!?! It's one of my favorites. :)

Le Grand Bleu Earrings.
A pair of gorgeous glam earrings. Vintage sapphire jewels with a hint of topaz...Sparkle like no other (and I love things that sparkle, you can tell that from my shop). Priced at only $16...What a steal! They are a perfect pair for a night out on the town. Want to see the item description? Click HERE.
Dreamy Vintage also carries a spectacular line of lockets. This one is another favorite of mine. It's called Lacy. An antique-silver locket, vintage-inspired, with a lovely bead attached to the silver plated chain. Simply elegant, simply romantic, simply pretty. To check out her entire line of lockets, click HERE.
For all things dreamy, and for beautifully vintage jewelry, I hope you will visit this shop. It's a great place to find a gift for yourself, or for someone else. Either way, Didem giftwraps your purchase for you! So even if it's for yourself, it's something you will truly be excited about receiving in the mail. =)
