A number of years ago, a co-worker of mine created me a crocheted bookmark and I was amazed at it's finished result. When she told me what she was making, I expected it to be too thick and bulky. Instead, it was thin and delicate yet sturdy and durable... and not to mention beautiful!
It became one of my favorite bookmarks and, unlike a variety of bookmarks that I've had since then and lost, I still have this beautiful bookmark today.
Today's shop, Ellen Mackler's Gmaellen on Etsy, carries bookmarks just like this. Beautifully crocheted but delicate, durable and yet thin enough to easily use as a bookmark between the pages of a book. And, these type of bookmarks are some of the most gentle you can use on books as well!
With limitless possibilities to explore in every ball of string, bookmarks aren't all that Ellen offers in her shop, either.
She offers a variety of items from bags and totes to kitchen accessories, baskets, jewelry, afghans and throws, dishcloths, washcloths, rugs, mats and more.
I found myself particularly drawn to not just her bookmarks but a large variety of the items I found in her shop. Her wine carriers and area rugs were also of interest to me personally and I'm sure you'll enjoy them as well.
If you like crocheted items, mesh bags or love bookmarks there's going to be plenty for you to fall in love with in this shop and if you're shopping for someone else, this is an excellent shop to stop by and browse in.
