The Broken Feather Shop sells feather based items, not surprisingly… judging by their name! All items are very bohemian in feel and fit a certain trend that is nature based but meets Anthropologie in style. I love buying from Etsy because it supports a small business and a vision that is not often seen in big box stores. SO many artisans go unnoticed, but Etsy gives them the exposure that they need to connect with the public. I love even more, having the ability to find gift ideas for loved ones that they will receive and feel so unique when they open the gift knowing that I searched to find the perfect thing for them.
Broken Feather Shop – jewelry, decor and photography
The shop sells gorgeous handmade dreamcatchers that would make a great addition for home décor—not only in the bedroom to catch dreams. Consider hanging a dreamcatcher as party of a gallery wall or in the entry way even! The weaving and feathers add dimension to a home that is cozy and also cultural. The dreamcatchers all have unique features from their color to size of the catcher, to feather type and beading—there is a lot of thought and consideration that is applied in creating these and that is evident. The dream catchers are also so affordable, the most expensive of them does not exceed $35—making it an ideal price to give as a gift or keep for yourself!
In addition to dream catches, the shop sells hair extensions made of feathers. This has been an accessory trend for a while now, clipping in colorful or even coordinating unique feathers to your hair and adding substance in a way different from traditional jewelry. BUT, if it is traditional jewelry you are looking for as an accessory to spice up your style, the shop does sell one-of-a-kind pieces.
For example, they sell a bull skull polymer clay necklace that is so out of the ordinary and rustic! You are sure to get compliments while wearing it. It almost makes the perfect gift because a clay bull skull isn’t anyone’s daily style (maybe it is?) but getting a gift that is so unique is always a safe bet as the purpose is to buy a friend something they would not buy themselves, it opens the eyes to new things!
Here’s a few words from Nicole, the owner of brokenfeathershop:
- I’ve been making dream catchers for the last 6 years after learning more about my family heritage. The Ojibwa nation from which my great grandparents descended were the original dreamcatcher weavers. Because of this, I make every dreamcatcher with respect to my family and ancestors.
- I donate a portion of my profits to social justice and animal welfare organizations.
- I would classify my prices in the medium range. I don’t like to overcharge, but I spend a lot of time on my dreamcatchers to ensure they last for a very long time. I believe in the saying, “You get what you pay for,” and I believe my customers get a high quality product.
- I never charge for domestic shipping, and any international shipping charges are exactly what Etsy provides – I never make money off shipping or handling.
- I accept custom orders as well as wholesale orders.
- You’ll mainly find dreamcatchers, driftwood pieces, necklaces, and feather hair clips in my shop; however, dreamcatchers are my number one passion.
- I try to use as many, verifiable, cruelty-free or naturally shed items. All of my art and jewelry is made out of love for all animals.
