My husband has become an Etsy enthusiast!

My husband discovers things on his own time.  So I'm kinda proud that he's recently started checking out Etsy for all kinds of cool stuff--he loves looking through independents artists's designs and products and has bought several very cool things of late!  (I mean, I coulda told him Etsy was awesome, but it's better he found out on his own!).

He also shops on some of those cool one-day-only sites like TeeFury, where every day a new artist's funky (usually nerd-centric) tee is posted and sold for like $10.  I'm very excited he'll be doing a lot of Christmas shopping on Etsy and some of these smaller sites this year. also has some really awesome trendy gift ideas.

His latest Etsy score?  This shirt.  I like it, too.  From this shop that has all kinds of neat prints on tees.

I'd post pics of the other stuff, but who knows who's reading this blog... wouldn't want to give away any gift surprises before Christmas!

How about you?  Do you have any great new sources for unique and interesting gifts this year?
