They have some really nice wahms that dye great yarn!:heart: Plus there are all kinds of artisians: glass makers, jewelry, cloth items, scrapbook stuff, stitch markers, etc.

I like it way better than Etsy :)

I don't shop online a lot so I don't have any links to share, but thanks a lot for the ideas! Jan, I will definitely check Think Geek and Edmund Scientific Toys. I think I could find great gifts for my dear (geeky) boyfriend. :teehee:

I recently found this shop in Manchester, I'd never noticed it before. I don't know if it's 'little known' but I love the look of some of the gifts and price ranges, and the fact that they are 'green' :)

Ooooh! I love Lush! The first one I was ever in was in Paris. I wish I had known then that there was a store about an hour from me in Greenwich, CT. I would have saved some money not buying there in Euros!

Their stuff is divine!

Oh boy.. My favorites as a kid were candy cigarettes :roll: and Sugar Babies.
