Impact Style went deep into the online shopping world to discover the best hidden treasures from all of our favourite websites. This week we explored Etsy.
For stylish hidden treasures, I immediately turned to one of my favourite websites, Etsy. From handmade to vintage, quirky to colourful, this website allows sellers worldwide to trade their wares, and offers the opportunity to find some real hidden treasures!
1. The Crafty Cow Shed
Item: Diddy Dinosaur Earrings
Offering a selection of handmade jewellery and accessories, Crafty Cows is a gem of a shop! These Diddy Dinosaurs used to be buttons, but have been transformed into fun and funky earrings, and are definitely a unique addition to your wardrobe.
2. Vera’s Eye Candy
Item: AC/DC Mini Dress
I’m a huge fan of both AC/DC and LBDs, and this mini dress by Vera’s Eye Candy combines the two with ease. With a vintage rock style that can be dressed up or down, I’d treasure this dress!
3. Old But Gold Vintage
Item: Vintage Tommy Hilfiger Jacket
Old But Gold Vintage sells affordable and unique vintage clothing from around the world – this vintage Hilfiger denim jacket being the perfect example of both a chic and cheap staple item that I predict will be sold very soon!

6. Carousel Ink
Item: Victorian City Leggings
These whimsical and unique leggings are a testament to and a quirky twist on this season’s gothic Victoriana trend currently sweeping the catwalks. And for that price, who can say no?
7. Julia Bo Shoes

By far the priciest treasure I found, these handmade shoes made of genuine leather are however, simply irresistible. With a seller that prizes diversity and authenticity, these shoes are made to order and available in a wide range of styles and colours. Perfect for those who like to look unique, these shoes can also be customised for free.
8. Creative Laughs

This ethereal phone case, with its unusual design is a real steal at only £10.00. The makers also don’t discriminate against non-Iphone users, so it’s possible to pick any design from the wide selection on offer.
