Etsy Tuesday: Star Trek

I know it's almost Wednesday (and it is Wednesday for some of you), but here is today's trip around etsy.com. Coming off the news from yesterday about Urban's maybe-slip-up, here's some handmade Trek gear for your home and yourself.

Jason Barfield of the shop jb2designs has several excellent sets of Star Trek coasters, along with many other geeky goodness themed coasters. Here are my two favorites:
Star Trek Drink Order Mini-set. Clever and cute! ($10.00)

And also:

I'm moving into a new apartment next month--maybe I should buy a few sets (and, in my opinion, so should everyone else! The shop also carries coasters based off of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter--among other things.)

Andrew Heath's shop AndrewHeath sells minimalist geeky posters. This would look great in my bedroom, and I'm eyeing a Ghostbusters one for my boyfriend.

Star Trek-inspired Print (18x24 $20.00)


For the first time ever, I'm posting something I already own--this Star Trek pillow. I lusted after it and received it as a gift for my last birthday. I love it! It's insanely comfortable, snuggly, and an excellent conversation piece. It's made sold in the shopYellowBugBoutique for $35.00.

Wine Glasses

Etching glassware is something I've always wanted to try but never quite got around to--which is why I am extremely tempted to buy these wine glasses ($25.00). They are etched with the four different Star Trek badge insignias--Medical, Command, Science and Engineering. Not only are they excellently geeky, but they would hep you identify your glass when you have guests over! They're sold at the shop desolationallie by Alyson Trent. They also come in regular glasses.


I really enjoy this Enterprise necklace, made out of laser cut acrylic. You can specify what color you want the charm painted and what type of chain you want it on--which I think is awesome. Even more aweosme is the price--a mere $8.50, which means I could buy several of the necklaces from HoraEffect, run by Lara Mogensen. In fact, that's what I am going to do with my next paycheck. 

That's it for today! I'm working on some crafts of my own that I may post later, along with my first DIY how-to. Tune in later!
