I scored some great stocking stuffer finds this year from The Curiosity Shoppe, an online source for decor, doo-dads, crafting and well-designed sundries.

This cubic switchplate was my favorite purchase. It comes in black or white for outlets or switches is a steal at $9.

I couldn't justify buying this crocheted jellyfish specimen this year, but I was tempted for inarticulable reasons, or more generally, why wouldn't you want it? Made by Jessica Polka of Wunderkammer for $80.

The item below did make it into my shopping cart, a Bird & Cage Stamp Set. I love the concept since the bird can fly free of it's cage at the will of the stamper. Unfortunately, it's temporarily out of stock but when it's back, it retails at a reasonable $10.
