Etsy Round Up: Washington DC

Oh. My. Goodness. I <3 me some Etsy and the authentic, amazingly beautiful items available on the website; it’s a place I go to for inspiration amd a little break from the monotony of life.  To spread the love on DC Residents Day, I’ve combed Etsy to find the latest and greatest handmade, DC inspired items that would be the perfect additions to DC lover homes, wardrobes, weddings, etc.

Getting married in DC in the Spring of 2012? Then you better get cracking on those save-the-dates, and while you’re at it feature DC’s beloved Cherry Blossoms. Did I mention that this reminder comes with a magnet already attached, so your guests can immediately put it on their fridges and won’t forget your special day (not that they would anyways).

Speaking of weddings, ladies are you looking for that perfect groom’s gift? Grooms are you looking for a kickass groomsmen gift? Well, you’re just in luck with this classy and timeless cufflinks made from begone DC railway tokens.

I’ve been seeing these slab soaps for a while now. In fact, I walk by Lush almost daily and can smell them a mile away; it’s almost as bad as the Body Shop was. However, make on out of DC “State” Flag and I’m all about purchasing this Stars and Bars, scented beauty.

Ummm…yeah…well….it’s Kenny Rogers sporting a retro DC t-shirt. Do I need to say more? Might as well put Chuck Norris’ head on there. I’m sold.

Last but not least. If you’re looking for some plus-size art for your DC pad, this 30″ X 73″ Trolley/Bus Roll Sign is the way to go. These rolls were
used to indicate the destination of the bus or trolley in the display window of the vehicle. This would be great wall hang and conversational piece.
