Call for Finds -- SPH Christmas List

I'd like to put together a gift list of Steampunk Home style items for you to send your loved ones with a "hint, hint." If you have your eye on anything in particular (or are the purveyor of such), please add it in the comments to this post and I'll take it all into consideration.

I'll only things that can fall into the "home" category -- books, home decor, cooking, furniture, etc. I'll also include some ideas for steampunklets. No jewelry or clothing, please.

Thanks!

I received my first House Beautiful in the mail today and thought of you. They have several rooms that look like modern steampunk to me. I heart it.

I've got some lovely and inexpensive steampunk-friendly photography prints at my Etsy store for folks looking for home decor. Lots of bright colors!

My site is http://www.exoskeletoncabaret.etsy.com. Thank you!

You might enjoy the steampunk-infused dark urban fantasy novel and Falling, Fly by my lovely wife, Skyler White. It won't be released until March 2010, but it'd make a nice Christmas pre-order from Amazon! :)

This is a great store!
They have finally released their Steampunk range for order.
What really makes this a store that stands apart from the rest is that they are willing to make up a design for you!
They are handmade in London using only the very best components and most luxurious fabrics - including the exclusive 'Steamforce Flying' textured leather.
Saw a prototype of the Aristocrat boot during this last Whitby and have been eagerly awaiting the store's opening.

What makes me most excited about the steampunk movement is that it is rekindling interest in some of the more obscure works of Victorian lit. To this day, we we a still rediscovering figures such as Chauncey Millington:

Buy some classic travel literature for the holidays and see where it all started!

Those linen curtains with nailhead trim are awesome!

Lynne said...

Crescent Moon, what makes you think that only kids would love those airship toys? Thanks, now I know what to ask for! ^_^

I don't have a lot of ideas at present but if anyone's in the market for apothecary jars or cloches, I saw some nicely shaped ones at the local Hobby Lobby, and they are half price this week. Even if you don't have a treasure to display in one yet, the shapes are pretty and they give a group of items a hint of science-lab- collector cachet.

Just saw some artist designed lamp shades posted on design*sponge (http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/11/yellena-james-schoolhouse-electric.html) and thought of your Holiday List. The artist also has an Etsy page: http://www.etsy.com/shop/yellena.

Cheers!

Let's try this again with proper links.

I desperately want this candlestick for my house: www.sundancecatalog.com/PRODUCT/For+the+Home/Living/Accessories/44439.html (among everything else on that website and on Jayson Homes.

Any of the furniture on spirithouse.ca, especially this bookcase: www.spirithouse.ca/gallery.php?id=79&left=20&gallery=14

I always have along list for Ten Thousand Villages (handcrafted and fair trade, what's not to love?), especially: http://www.tenthousandvillages.ca/cgi-bin/category.cgi?type=store&item=5996060&category=M_Hom

I just got a teak and leather Regency style sofa from this store, they've got plenty of great items: http://bluemoonevo.com/adventurer.html

Not my own store! I buy people pocket watches for Chrismas and I get them off Ebay for..well..nothing plus postage. If you're uncertain about buying watches from Ebay I have to say I've bought a lot (like, about 10? !2?) and never had a watch not arrive, never had a watch not work and never had anyone who wasn't delighted. Some are more steampunky than others, so I'm putting up my faves for this year, just so you can see the pictures.

This one has 3 working dials, in brass, so you can set your Time Machine
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Antique-Style-Three-dials-Five-Hands-1856S-LONDON-Brass-Pocket-Watch-/260895770496?_trksid=p4340.m185&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC.NPJS%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUA%26otn%3D5%26pmod%3D390365129737%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D4380895582715230370#ht_5743wt_928

(I bought that one for Hubby. Shhs!)

And this one I own and buy more for my Lady Adventuress companions.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=290440609030&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT

It's mechanical! You can see the cogs!!!!

Again, I don't own any of these Ebay stores, just this is where I shop for Steampunk stuff that works for Mundane people, too.
