Etsy continues to amaze me with all the great items you can find there. Not only great finished projects and supplies, but also great vintage "stuff". Here is a great set of Glitter Shakers (anyone who have followed my blog for a while knows I love vintage shakers), but I found them too late. Sold! Oh well, I can still enjoy the pictures! Want to see more great (non-Glittery) vintage treasures? Check out Caity Ash Badashery on Etsy.
Ok, shoot me for not being politically correct, but come on now, have you ever seen a more beautiful sight? Lovely vials, all filled with glass glitter. Makes you want to put these on your crafting shelf, not to use them, but just to bask in their glittery glory.
And thanks to Paula at ginderellas (etsy store) these and many, many more are ready to be called home to your craft workshop where you can also bask in their glittery glory as well!
While not as glittery as glitter, these beads also make for a great presentation. Just 1MM in size (for you non-metric types, this means small!) and with no holes, these beads are a great additional "tool" in your crafting toolbox. And Paul has them all! As we say around here, come for the glitter, stay for the vials! Thanks Paula!
We are always surfing Etsy, looking for the cutting edge of projects that use Glitter and to inspire us with new concepts and new ideas that we can all use. And if we help a Etsy seller, make a sale, even better!
So, today we are happy to introduce Little Beach Designs who found these tarnished tart tins at the flea market and turned them into daring vintage ornaments. Check them out Etsy!
I am always checking out Etsy to see what designers and crafters do with German Glass Glitter. As a glitter junkie, it's just something I am compelled to do. I always find something that is unique and this is one I wanted to share with my readers.
With all our kids going back to school, the idea of giving your child's teacher a personalized garland with their name on it is just wonderful! It's a gift that will set you apart from the other parents and something the teacher can use for years and years.
A great ice breaker and a smart way to help little students remember how to spell their new teacher name! I just like it a thousand times over! And at MariesMarketplace you can order one with your teacher name and have in time for back to school night. Thanks Etsy! And thanks Marie!
As I have said, you can NEVER have too many banners (or Garland!). From Marie's Marketplace on Etsy, a great selection of Holiday (and not holiday!) garland, some with Glass Glitter, some without. (Of the coarse the Glass Glitter ones look sooooooooooooo much better! :-)
I did one of my Etsy searches for Glass Glitter and have to say Glass Glitter is HOT, HOT, HOT! Wow, over 5,000 listing for Glass Glitter. Now, of course, I wish all of it came from us, but that is not the point! I recognize plenty of names, but also see Glitter from other companies (funny - many of the cheaper glitter do not say if comes from Germany. Hey, I'm just saying......) But any thing glittery is good! So click here to see all 5,000 Glittery items on Etsy.
There is a long history of using Walnut Shells in Holiday Craft projects, just check out this list here! If you think about it, in the "old days" they were always around and were cheap! Why not use them in crafting! We agree!
For years we have imported from Germany these very detailed, diecast plastic walnut shells and sell them like hotcakes. We have both empty shells and shells with Christmas or Forest scenes already built into them. <<For pricing and more photos, click here >>
Just to get you thinking, here are a bunch of cool projects created with...... Walnut Shells!
Which instantly takes you to Etsy where you will find tons of Glittery goodness. Like over 290 Glittery supplies, projects and collectibles. Here are just a few of the items I found. Get ready to explore and discover!

While we talk about our Glitter in most of blog posts, the reality is that we probably sell as many Vintage German Miniatures as we do Glitters. (A true fact). Maybe we should call this blog, "Everything Glitter and Tiny" or something like that.
Just in case do you not believe me, just check this out! Jennifer Arndt has sent us photos of some of the items she has created from our German Miniatures and there is so much to see in her Etsy Shop. Really impressive! Can you find all the little goodies from Meyer Imports in these photos? There is a bunch of them! To learn more about the history of our miniatures, just click here. To see Jennifer's Shop, just click here! And now, onto more great pictures of her creations!
