Yet to make any actual 'sale' sales ourselves (20%offbothshopsNOEL09inmessagetosellerforrefundpleasethankyou) here are some pieces that have caught our eyes over the past few days... and all of them are pre-Christmas bargains.
We've been following Silversmithy on Twitter for a while, and as suckers for anything chunky, hammered and silver, this ring, $70, was a top pick in her ktsilver shop, with free shipping until December 1st.
A rather fabulous notebook from Mrseliotbooks has already been safely ordered for a lucky list-maker this Christmas. We love these beautiful patchwork graph notebooks too, just $9 with super reasonable shipping and great service.
If this delicate dragonfly wing ring is not under the Christmas tree come December 25th, it will certainly have to be a present for self in the New Year. And we don't even have to choose between the ring, earrings and pendant - by Jessedanger, it comes with free shipping if you buy another item. A very reasonable $35.
Wings, twigs and feathers remind this city girl of home and this hand-pierced feather necklace by Samantharose is a reminder of wide open spaces, with free shipping.
Finally, the party season is upon us and to really turn heads you need elegant accessories, like our knight in shining armour vintage mesh bag, from the 1920s. A very special piece, take 20% off for a vintage bargain at $62.40.

Dinner with friends, a designer housemate, some beautifully dressed curly willow twigs in a turquoise vase, dressed with tiny birds, ribbons, gemstones and pompoms. My friend in the background having a cigarette out of the window.

Visit the Affordable Vintage Fair for me. It's currently heading northwards, I would absolutely love to be at the Northumbria University Student Union on November 29 for reworked fashion from local designers and vintage goodies from all around, but sadly I'll be here instead...

This year's Noel Gourmand Christmas retail theme at Galeries Lafayette, means Christmas windows that are good enough to eat, starting off with Liberty print cake and a silk chocolate log, studded with pearls...
... with a café au lait with a sausage of Liberty print whipped cream...
...a pièce montée of scrumptious silk macaroons...
...silken pineapple, draped with pearls...
...and silk and ostrich feather turkey, to be carved with the family silver.
More here (in French), including the fashion windows.
