Etsy Love: Sweet Ruin & Some Heartsy Addiction

When it comes to jewelry and decor, I love a sort of mysterious and romantic antique aesthetic. Something dark and dusty, yet full of wonder. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across Sweet Ruin's Etsy shop on a late night Etsy expedition for amazing masks.

Not only does Sweet Ruin make some amazingly decadent masks, fit for a opulent Rococo or Victorian masquerade (that are, sadly a bit out of my monthly mask budget), but they also offer a variety of jewelry pieces and even art and some stunningly gorgeous hand fans.


I've also recently discovered Heartsy! What is Heartsy, and how does it work, you ask? Basically, it's a place for select Etsy shops to post special sales where you can get between %50 and even %70 or higher a percent off your purchase from them. They offer a limited number of vouchers at a discounted price that are good for a sometimes astronomically large amount of store credit. If you're a VIP member of Heartsy you can get even more of a discount on some sales. The shops change on a day-to-day basis, so there's always something new to be tempted into buying.

Heartsy - Exclusive deals on fabulous handmade designer items at members-only prices.

I paid for a month of it to test it out a bit, and currently I am loving it. I've bought 3 vouchers that in total cost me $40 (including my month's subscription) and have gotten $80 worth of vouchers. I have a feeling I'll be giving out a lot of handmade stuff for Christmas this year!

Will I keep my subscription for a second month? Maybe, I really don't know yet, it all depends whether or not I think I'm going a little bit spend crazy with stuff I don't really need but just can't resist or what. Although, I am considering possibly offering a sale in my own Etsy shop through Heartsy, I've just got to get it a little bit more filled up.
