We are Kindred Spirits Etsy Shop, Tote Bag Giveaway, and Gap Born to Fit Winners!

While having a fabulous time at Julie Q’s Nintendo party, we met one of our readers, Kristen. One of the first things we noticed about Kristen was the super cute tote bag she was carrying on her shoulder. She happened to mention that she didn’t buy the tote bag, but that she actually made the bag herself. Yes, she made it herself. She went on to tell us that she loves sewing purses, making jewelry, etc. and that she and her friend even have their own Etsy shop. Their shop is called We are Kindred Spirits and she runs it with one of her best friends, Sam. Since Chels and I are clearly sort of kindred spirits ourselves this is definitely an idea we can get behind.


WANM with Kristen

We wanted to share a few of our favorite pieces from We are Kindred Spirits with you:


Blue and White Hobo Bag- $20


iPhone/Blackberry Cell Phone Sleeve- $5


Maroon Beaded Bracelet- $14


Blue and Orange Tote- $24

We love the simple, but fun styles. And the low prices for such unique bags and jewelry! Just another of the million reasons why we have an Etsy obsession.

  10. kim says:

    Oh I’m loving that Damask Hobo Bag. I’ve been in a huge blue phase lately which is so unlike me! The length of the bag looks just perfect, and I always look for bags with inside pockets so I can hide my keys and iPod. Most excellent.

  11. kim says:

    All that cute free stuff made me Tweet! Ha ha.

  12. Liz says:

    I love the DREAM tote! Thought I would probably put LAUGH on it if I won. Such an awesome idea for giveaways!

    Thanks again ladies!

  21. Erin says:

    I love the little iPhone holder. I’m terrible to mine and just toss it around everywhere completely uncovered. As for the bag, since I’m stressed out all the time I think it should say something like “breathe” in pretty pink or blue colors.

  22. Kathy says:

    These bags are so cute, especially the fabric choices! I would definitely choose either the cupcake or the love bag, with the word Monk, which is what my sweetie calls me. Thanks for the giveaway, love your site!

  23. Shannon says:

    I love the maroon beaded bracelet— and the bags, well, it’s too hard to pick just one! Very cool stuff. 🙂

  26. Julie says:

    I am a tote lover-its between the Love tote or the Cupcake tote 🙂

  27. Ladytink_534 says:

    My favorite item is the Blue and White Hobo Bag. I think I’d like my last name on my bag or maybe “Dream.”

  28. Janine says:

    I like the Blue and White Tote! So cute. I would have my name put on it, (Original, right?) because I have NEVER found anything with “Janine” on it. 🙂 I also like their multi colored crystal Y necklace!

    I LOVE bags!! What a great give away and an amazing shop! The “Dreamy Tote” is my favorite and would just pick that one! Love the word “dream” and red is my favorite color!!

  32. Shelley C says:

    I thought the multi crystal Y necklace would go with just about everything! I like a piece I can wear everyday if I like it so much and not have to wear it with certain outfits….

  33. Melanie S. says:

    My favorite item in their shop is the Blue and Orange tote – love the brightness of it! If I won, I’m thinking I’d either have them put “Grandma” and a heart on one (for my mum-in-law) or else a book and “nom nom” for my book-gobbling son to take with him on library trips. 😛

  34. Rachel O. says:

    I like the blue and white tote. I’d probably have my daughters’ initials put on the tote…

  35. Chelsey says:

    The Cupcake Wrislet is one of my favourite items. I have no idea what word I would want. I’d think about it for a while and then probably settle on love. lol… Thanks for the giveaway.
