Today, I’m giving a shoutout to all my favourite shops on Etsy that sell junk journal supplies – for two reasons.
First, who doesn’t love treating themselves to new craft supplies? While you don’t necessarily need any fancy junk journal supplies to get started, it’s a lot of fun to treat ourselves to a few “nice-to-haves” once we’re more familiar and comfortable with our styles and what we like.
The shops I’ve listed below are all ones I’ve bought gorgeous junk journal supplies from (physical ones; I’ve written a separate blog about my favourite junk journal printables, which I’m slowly adding to over time).
But there’s another reason for this shoutout today. I was recently named Etsy’s “Affiliate of the Month/Rising Star” for the UK, which I was over the moon with!
My House of Mahalo blog and YouTube channel are still fairly new. I launched them during the start of the pandemic when I saw the travel industry take a hit – naturally affecting my travel blog, Wanderers of the World.
Now more than ever, when I do well at something, such as hitting a new milestone, winning awards, etc, I always want to find a way to “give back” or “pay it forward”. Because we’re all stronger together, right?
This is why I want to take the time to recognise some of my favourite Etsy shops for junk journal supplies. I hope it gives you some inspiration, but I also hope it does the shops and the shop owners some good as well.
Let’s get to it, shall we?!
My Favourite Etsy Shops For Junk Journal Supplies
As I mentioned earlier, these are my favourite shops on Etsy (at the time of writing) for junk journal supplies.
I’ve already listed some of my favourite printables and shops selling digitals. But today, I’m focusing on inspiring, beautiful and downright useful physical junk journal supplies.
Her handmade journals, ephemera and embellishments are gorgeous!
But she also sells various supply bundles in her shop, which are useful for when you want to try out a project, but you don’t necessarily need a hundred different supplies.
I love her paper bag and envelope bundles (they’re fabulous for when you want to give an altered file folder project a go) and I’ve also bought file folders from her as well (because the alternative is having a hundred of them, rather than just a handful).
She sells eyelash trim in sections of five metres and they each come on handy “spools” to help you organize your stash.
As for the vintage tickets, she sells them in quantities of 50 or 100 and they’re very good quality considering their age.
Trace’s shop is the first place I look when I’m after crinkled seam binding or sari silk ribbon.
She hand-dyes them herself and they’re so reasonably priced! I love the colours and effects she gets.
Once again, I find her shop handy for when I just want to buy a metre or two of something.
RachandBellaCrafts offer some beautiful printables in their Etsy shop, but I also love the vintage fabrics and haberdashery items they sell as well.
Once again – and you might be sensing a theme here – I love that they sell them in bundles.
So, you can treat yourself to several different items without needing to buy great big quantities of each thing. I suppose this works like an inspiration pack, which is helpful for those just starting out or working on a particular project.
I must say their handmade journals are also simply stunning!
Speaking of gorgeous journals and vintage fabrics, I’d also recommend checking out VintageLinenPantry.
Over the past year, I’ve found various supplies in Charise’s shop such as vintage wallpaper packs and textile bundles.
I favourited her shop, so I get notified whenever she lists new goodies – and almost always, they either go straight into my basket or onto my “buy next” wishlist.
They’re reasonably priced and offer lots of variety for your craft projects.
When I was first building my junk journal supplies stash, I knew I wanted lots of lace and ribbons for my projects.
I went back to buy several more packs a week later and – while I’m still working my way through them now – I found the packs very helpful for building my stash quickly.
FrancaisVintage is another shop I love for finding beautiful vintage fabrics and other goodies.
Nicola offers a great selection of fabrics and linens – in colours I adore! I also like that she bundles some of her items together into creative inspiration packs and starter kits.
When I’m looking for Tim Holtz fabric, I often check out FelixLovesFabric on Etsy.
They sell various designs of fabric – including several Tim Holtz styles – by the fat quarter. This is a really handy size for making a journal with – without breaking the bank or having to buy loads of fabric for just the odd project here and there.
There are also lots of other fabrics in their shop you might like to take a look at as well.
I like to peruse VintageJournalCo’s shop for stickers and random ephemera.
Not only do they sell general sticker packs and supplies, but they’ve also designed their own range of stickers as well.
Be warned, though! You may end up spending hours looking through their shop as they’ve got lots and lots of variety in there!
dadastickers is another of my favourite shops for buying fun stickers, but I also love their washi tape selection as well.
I often only need to buy one or two packs of stickers at a time, so I find dadastickers’ shop particularly helpful in that regard, rather than having to buy stickers in bulk elsewhere.
Carole sells the thread in quantities of 20 or 50 metres and it’s really good quality. While she uses it for professional bookbinding, I love using it for binding my journals.
And in these quantities, I only need to buy a spool of thread every few months or so.
Well, I couldn’t resist a shameless plug, could I? *wink*
While I have lots more goodies I still need to list in my shop, I currently sell various vintage papers for junk journaling, including book page packs, mixed ephemera, wallpaper packs and more.
