New Etsy and Threadbanger Playlist

A couple weeks ago, I was asked to compile a playlist for Etsy and Threadbanger  as a collaborative project. I was given the task of choosing a theme and then digging through all of YouTube to find a collection of videos around that theme.

Being a fellow curious onlooker of Craigslist’s Missed Connections, I was instantly excited by the profile of one of my favorite Etsy artists, Sophie Blackall. She looked to this incredible online personal lost and found as inspiration for a collection of art that is now available in book form and on public display in the subways in NYC.

So, take a look at the playlist and let me know what you think. I have yet to watch the video of myself, as I’m weird like that, however I thoroughly enjoyed the others and thought you would too. Below are just a couple that are featured including the Etsy profile on Sophie and a love story between a bicycle and a sewing machine  by peSeta for the New Museum.
