Browsing on Etsy

Untitled-2
I'm still fairly new to Etsy. Not only new to selling on Etsy but also browsing around and seeing what other people are selling. For some reason I could never figure out the best way to search for things on Etsy and I just gave up and never really gave it much thought. Now I'm wishing I hadn't done that since I'm sure I missed out on lots and lots of great stuff. Oh, well. I'm discovering there are still lots of amazing things to be found. One of my favorite shops to browse through is Beautiful Reign. How can one person have so many pretty things?! If I hit the jackpot I'll be swooping up that out-of-this-world 40s bathing suit first thing! I'm also loving that 20s silk camisole in the perfect shade of peachy pink. And I've never in all my days seen anything quite like the quilt and shams made from old cigarette silks. Talk about being resourceful. All of those things may be out of my price range but the set of 30s linen kitchen towels is perfectly attainable at just $20. They are definitely going on my wish list.

What an amazing swimming costume- I totally agree. It should be in a museum or something!
