Boutique of the Kitsch & Strange
Before I jump into my review of the Boutique of the Kitsch & Strange, I want to start off by saying that Aeyshea Jones is one of the most polite and hard-working sellers I have met so far in the blogging community. When we first agreed to collaborate, she was extremely friendly, and overall has been a pleasure to work with. She is willing to provide custom requests, and her work is perfect when buying for yourself, or for friends on special occasions.
From her collection, I selected an A4 print, entitled Mr, Stumpy Narwhal. It is a handmade, digitally drawn item, favourited by twenty-four people so far. It comes unframed, but signed, and there is also the option to select a size that differentiates from A4.

From when I ordered the print to its arrival it took around three days, which was great. And when it arrived, it came wrapped in silver dotted paper, with a ribbon that said ‘Created With Love’ [*as you can see from the images above*]. What I really loved though was the hand-crafted, gold-painted button which held the ribbon together. It made me feel that Jones had taken a lot of care with my item before shipping it off.
Once I finally loosened the ribbon [*it took a while as I didn’t want to ruin the lovely wrapping*], and saw the print, I was very pleased with the final product. The print came on a slice of cardboard to avoid any bends or folds in the delivery process, and the colours looked so much brighter in person too! Alongside the print was Aeyshea Jones’ Esty card [*pictured above*], showing what social platforms she can be found on. It also came with a sticker, depicting her logo, some cute plastic flowers, and Parma Violets.
Currently, my print sits in a frame on my bedroom window. Eventually I’m hoping to switch the frame [*aka find a brown one, without the white border inside of it*], and hang it up in my university accommodation when I move in.
Overall, I am so extremely pleased with this product, and the entire service provided by the Boutique of the Kitsch & Strange. There is no doubt that I would purchase from this Etsy shop again [*maybe for my friends’ Christmas presents*], as I believe there really is something for everyone.
Mr. Stumpy Narwhal|Cosmetic Bag|Signed
For those interested in this design, Jones has recently added a beautiful collection of cosmetic bags to her shop, including Mr. Stumpy Narwhal. As you can see below, it looks wonderful, and is large enough to fit in a range of makeup for when you’re on the go, or on holiday, etc.
