Nice might be one of the niftiest shops I’ve come across on Etsy. They have a fantastic selection of vintage and handmade wares like the carousel glasses above, which totally remind me of ones i had when I was a kid. The range goes from quirky to elegant and everything in between. Who doesn’t need a snail bank or another stag on their wall?

The more interesting thing about nice is their free stuff program. The gist is, you buy something from the site, take a pic of the item in it’s new home and send it to the people at nice. Then they’ll make you a great mix CD and you’ll be entered into a monthly drawing to win something extra. It’s a really unique program and seems like it has a lot of heart in it.Multiple photos mean multiple entries!

Shop Nice at Etsy here. Find out more about their free stuff program at their blog. — Kim B.

our wedding favors? vintage salt & pepper shakers!

Well, we’re still coming down from the high of our wonderful, fun, friend and love-filled weekend. I can’t believe it’s all over! I did cry — and not just once — but I certainly wasn’t the only one with a wet eye.

Here’s a quick post on one idea that I’m particularly proud of that you’re welcome to steal: We gave each guest a unique set of vintage salt -n- pepper shakers. I started off buying a few in some local thrift stores, but then lucked out when I spotted a whole lot of them on eBay. I was able to buy 30 from one seller and it ended up being really economical. The fun part was matching the set to the guest, and having them waiting at each table when dinner began. Shown here is a pair of kissing Indians that Chad & I set aside for ourselves, and two musical pigs for our friend Adam Snyder, who along with another talented friend, Anthony Cochran, blew everyone away with the beautiful songs they sang for us. Definitely check out eBay if you ever want to try this idea for yourself! — Angela M.

(More wedding details coming soon… No, I’m not blogging from the honeymoon — that’s a couple weeks away!)
