Some Tarot From Etsy

August 20th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Not long ago, I wrote about April’s Army Tarot Project, created by fans of the site Regretsy.com. I even donated to the project and can’t wait to get my copy of their deck.

Regretsy is a comedic site that pokes fun at items for sale on Etsy.com, which is an on-line market focusing on handmade goods and crafts.

Regretsy can be really funny. But in fairness to Etsy, though there are some questionable items on sale, there’s also a lot of great stuff made by skilled artists, artisans and crafters.

And if you do a search for Tarot, you’ll find over 4,000 listings, though most are for readings rather than Tarot related items or crafts.

Sakki-Sakki Tarot

But there is a lot of Tarot stuff. Decks for instance, and some really nice self-published ones.

I noticed Beth Seilonen’s shop. Her decks are fabulous. And Monicka Clio Sakki is selling her Sakki-Sakki Tarot, a favourite of mine.

The Tarot Reader - The Bohemian Tarot Bag

Tarot bags of course are a hot item, and I especially liked the Bohemian Cat ones by Baba Studios. They have gorgeous bags of all types, but this Tarot reading cat is my first choice.

There’s also a lot of Tarot jewelry – bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and most interesting, ‘fascinators’, which I’ve discovered are hair clips.

Magical Tarot Fascinators

Here are two Tarot Fascinators I was particularly fascinated by.

The first, because it’s probably the most novel use of extra cards I’ve ever seen.

The second because I’m impressed by the unexpected union of the Tarot and burlesque. The name intrigues as well – Small Disappointments.

Tarot dress

Then there’s this Tarot dress. It’s kind of pretty. Perfect for a Tarot conference, though maybe a little too much card for everyday wear.

The Lovers Cross Stitch Pattern

For the avid needle-working Tarot fan, there’s the Lovers Tarot Card Cross Stitch Pattern PDF. I ordered one of these, and can’t wait to get cross stitching.

And finally, there’s the 50 Tarot Fortune Slips in a blue organza fortune flower. I’ve included this last item mainly because I like the dog.

So there you have it, some highlights from the Tarot section of Etsy. But there’s so much more. Take a look for yourself sometime.

Whether you like the things or not, it’s fun just to see what people are making.
