Showing the Handmade

It's time for my monthly roundup of the new items the CCCOE team has listed for sale. As this is only a brief taste, make sure to check out the newbie thread for other great finds.

First up, it's not too late to get something for Halloween. Especially if it's a digital download like this good witch card...

Of course, Halloween doesn't need to be the end of the interestingly-themed items. Like, for example, this rosette...

And let's face it, I'm a sucker for anything orange. Which is why this bracelet caught my eye...

Perhaps you're looking for an upcoming birthday. We are currently in the sign of Scorpio and we will be until about November 21st. If you've ever met a Scorpio, this mug is pretty apropos.

The other thing I'm a sucker for is the interesting bag. And this tie bag has that in spades...

Need a planter for your succulents? I've seen various ideas for planters, but I'll admit I kind of like the graphic look of this triangle. It'll definitely stand out in an outdoor space...

And finally, it'll probably get cold around here. Eventually. And when it does, how about a handwoven blanket?
