Shopping with Action Jackson

So, I have to say upfront that I'm really excited about this new segment, and I hope to turn it into a regular weekly post. Anywho, my roomie and I had been discussing new ways that I could spice up my blog, and we somehow came up with this idea. For "Shopping with Action Jackson", I'll be choosing about 9 or 10 finds that I come across on Etsy that all fall under a particular theme. This week's theme, which is pretty fitting (see July 24th post), is art deco. I decided since my new "line" will be directly inspired by the game, Bioshock, as well as retro and art deco styles in general, why not make it the first theme for SwAJ?

As a reformed shopaholic (reformed by money, not by choice), this will be a real treat for me and will enable me to window shop to my heart's content. On the flip side, it'll be an easy way for everyone who checks out the blog to see great finds they might not have seen on their own. So, in a way, it's like I'm a personal shopper free of charge. If you have any suggestions for future posts of this segment, just send me a message or make a post! The item names are listed followed by the Etsy seller/shop names. Enjoy.
