I think that crafters can be forgiven for getting a headstart on Christmas crafting. There are boutique booths to stock and Etsy shops to fill. It's frustrating to have so many great ideas, but the necessary supplies haven't hit the stores yet. I am itching to visit my favorite antique mall in Salt Lake City for vintage doodads. Unlike eBay, the vendors at this mall are pretty reasonable on their prices. I am so jealous of bloggers like Magpie Ethel who has hit the jackpot this year at many estate sales...which are not common around here. Go visit her blog and try not to drool over all her vintage crafting supplies...and then see what she's created and listed on Etsy...Amazing!
