Newbie Monday - Potpourri

I’ve been trying to introduce newbies according to themes for the last few weeks, but there are some sellers who just stand apart from the rest. There was no way I was going to leave them out, though, because they are so fabulous and talented. Hence, potpourri.


I’m sure it’s not easy trying to sell knitted items when a good majority of etsy buyers are hanging out at the beach or having a barbeque, but this New Jersey seller has such beautiful items, I’m sure that elusive first sale will come her way soon.

I am personally drooling over this stormy blue Ruffled Scarf with cascading ruffles that keep you nice and cozy on a blustery day. If you like your winter clothing to have warmer tones, it’s offered in maroon as well.

Besides scarves and muffs, MegnificentCo makes summer wraps and purses. Think ahead and get a scarf from her store now so that you won’t be caught without one when you actually need it.


Looking through TDNCreations’ store makes me want to go back to school and study metal working. I share her enthusiasm about what can be created out of a strand of wire, and there are so much more possibilities when you can solder!

The simplicity of her pieces also speaks to me too, as evidenced in the Silver Moon Ring shown. There’s a certain aura of serenity around her works, and the beautiful crescent moon just begs to be gazed and meditated upon.

I also love the Starfish and 3 Chains Anklet with delicate chains clasped together by a little starfish. What a perfect item for summer.


My final seller of the week has one of the more unique stores in etsy. She makes little puppies out of felt, and she can even make one modeled after your little pet!

The one shown is a Bichon Frise, and I couldn’t resist choosing him as the featured pup because he has such a friendly smile!

Due to her choice of materials, she seems to handle short-haired and long-haired breeds equally well, which is actually rare to see! I know because I have a Yorkie, and I’m often frustrated by how they are represented in many of the breed-specific knick knacks.

I wish her best of luck, and of course, good luck to MegnificentCo and TDNCreations as well!


I hope you adore these newbie finds as much as I do. If you are a newbie with 5 or less sales, and would like to be featured too, please leave a comment or convo me through my etsy account!


  1. I love this feature, and wonderful group of sellers! TDNCreations is my personal favorite. Added a few items to My Favorites...

  2. Thank you so very much for featuring my shop! I love your blog, and it's an honor to be mentioned. Thanks again!

  3. What lovely shops to feature. Each so different and all very lovely.
    I would love to be featured on your wonderful blog, I have only 3 sales (2 items were sold to 1 person...but guess that looks better than only have 2 sales?) And my shop is a supply shop and not handmade. But you can check it out and see if you'd like to feature it on your blog or not. If you do, I'll be very honored. :)
