Ready, Set, Bid!

If you're a fan of eBay and you love shopping on Etsy, you'll definitely love this site called Tophatter.

It's exactly what you're thinking it is: an action site for Etsy items.  It's just as easy to sell items as it is to sign up and start bidding.  A majority of the items I've seen start out at 1$ and can go as high as $15 or more (price does not include shipping).  But that is still nothing compared to the item's retail value.

Here is a screenshot of what the auction looks like in action.
Above you see that websites attempt to depict a real-life auction scene.  Just below that is a chat room version of the auction and if you look closely, you'll notice that both auction scene and chat room accompany one another.  Pretty neat!

Tophatter also organizes the bid items into categories, making it easier to pick and choose which type of item you're looking for.  It is suggested that you reserve your spot as spots are limited (although, I have never had a problem entering and re-entering live auctions).  

My favorite feature is the ability to receive a text message for an item you're waiting on to go up for sale :)

Well! Hope to see some of your items there, let me know if you plan on submitting your items! Otherwise, happy shopping!!

Gun Alarm Clock

Isn't this the coolest thing ever?? Or possibly the most frustrating one, not sure good anyone's aim would be at whatever-o-clock in the morning.

Etsy Finds - Metal Madness

Well there was an error on my blogger that I was avoiding to correct which prevented me from posting for a while, but I finally got around to it and still working on my domain name on the side.  Work and school have been pretty crazy as usual, I think I'm to a point of being caught up though.  Then again I always say that :(

Anyways!  I've spotted a few items that I just adored!  I especially love the hand stamped spoon! That would definitely be my gift to me someday <3 Haha

Enjoy today's picks!
