Super Duper Things

Monday, February 14, 2011

Annnnd this is seriously why I could never have an Etsy shop like this one. I wouldn't be able to part with anything. 



Louise's shop, Super Duper Things, is full of truly unique handmade jewelry and accessories - and a lot of them are one of a kind and made from recycled vintage components that she finds. I feel like her items exudes good taste and a good eye (and you should see her blog).

Crown Necklace


Interview Time!

1. 5 Things that Make you Happy?
Tea, playing Articulate with friends, chips (I mean proper fat potatoey fish'n'chips chips, not french fries!), buttons, when someone really loves something I've made for them.
2. What is your favorite item in your shop right now? 
I change my mind constantly, but I think it's the necklace featuring a working pocket watch as a locket. It's pretty, and it tells the time! Or, the Icicle brooches are a favourite series.
Pocket Watch Locket

3. What drives your love of vintage and your etsy shop?
There's nothing like that feeling of spying that perfect treasure in a charity shop or flea market! I bet you all know what I mean - and it's nice to be able to pass on the stuff I couldn't resist but don't have room for in my house! I also just LOVE turning something unloved and old into something new that someone will like again - you save it from landfill and make someone a new treasure at the same time. It makes me so happy!
Thanks for answering the questions and welcome as a Sponsor here!! (I'm with you on fish & chips!)
