A while back, I told you all about the wonders of Etsy and why I am absolutely in love with it. It’s ability to connect you with artisans making unique, handcrafted goods is totally in line with the Steampunk “maker” ethic which focuses on the inventor or artist as a prime economic power. I have more reasons to love Etsy, which I promise I will explore later, but today, I want to focus on another website which will invariably help you in your search to complete your Steampunk wardrobe: Ebay.
And, to be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of Ebay. I don’t like that I’m often not assured the item I want because of the bidding system. I also find navigating Ebay somewhat clunky.
But, I’ve found a website for you all which considerably streamlines the process of buying Steampunk accessories through Ebay: Steampunk Attire.
This site is wonderful for consolidating all of a certain accessory tagged as Steampunk on to a single website so you can effortlessly recall and watch items.
This isn’t the first place to look if you are looking to build an outfit from its foundations, but for the accessories that add a level of polish to the entire ensemble, this website cannot be beat!
Happy bidding, everyone!
