Today I wanted to do something a little different. As a handmade seller and doll collector it is super important to me to be a part of supporting the community that supports me. Because of that I love buying handmade items and I thought it would be a nice to post mini reviews here.
Above is a package that I got a few days ago from Etsy seller feverworm. It came in two little orange and white bags and had a business card and an awesomely creepy possum sticker. I think it’s just me, but I really love it when sellers put a handwritten note in their packages. It’s something I always do, and it just adds the personal touch you want when you buy handmade. I bought their Fanciful Gaze 1.5″ pinback buttons ($4) and their Little Red and Alice sticker duo ($2). Their shipping was reasonably priced and reasonably fast so I’m not going to go into it.
Their creepy chibi Little Red Riding Hood and Alice (in Wonderland) stickers were what made me click “buy” in the first place. They don’t have the feel of professionally printed stickers to me, as in they don’t seem to be vinyl, but they are still nice quality. Oddly, the possum sticker was professionally printed. The illustrations themselves are so creepy cute, Alice’s red eyes and Red’s taupe skin are really nice touches. I can’t wait to get yelled at by my IT guy for sticking these on my laptop.
I have a weakness for buttons, you guys. It’s like a sickness. I have hundreds. I’m also obsessed with eyes/eyeballs so this item was a no-brainer for me. The buttons are printed on holographic semi-matte paper and are super cool. They come on cards and the packaging feels very on-brand to me. Of the whole set the blue cute eye (bottom) is my favorite. I have no idea what I would wear these on, maybe I need a jean jacket I don’t know, but I’m very happy I bought them.
In conclusion I’m very happy with my feverworm purchase, even if I don’t feel like we’re BFF’s now because I didn’t get a note. I would buy from them again in a second. They also have prints, zipper pulls, small bags, and stickers.
So that’s it for my mini review! I hope you liked it.
