Yikes! June Etsy Spotlight: Handmade, Colorful, Retro Fashion

This June's Etsy Spotlight  is made up of handmade and specialty items. The gorgeous, Yellow Submarine-esque Vintage Printed Miniskirt ($55) is sewn from vintage fabric, which the creator describes as a "schizoid patchwork with all kinds of geometric shapes like diamonds, Greek keys, and honeycombs; natural elements like flowers and clouds; and wonderfully bohemian medallions."

The "Carnival" Shoes from Red Nose Shoes ($190) are also handmade. Shlomit Hai of Herzliya, Israel creates the "Carnival" line of shoes from genuine leather. They feature an interesting duotone leather toe. The mixtape watch ($165) is another cool find-- it has the "feel and look of an actual working cassette tape"!

The Yikes! item in the spotlight is the Polymer Pillow Beads and Sterling Silver Squares Bracelet ($132), a very pretty and colorful polymer and silver bracelet in a contemporary squares motif.
