Help Me Name My New Etsy Store Contest

It's not a secret that I've been a packrat, collector and appreciator of vintage items and oddities for a long, long time. I'm the one who goes to the antique stores with visions of decorating my entire home in vintage quilts, head vases and other cool stuff. And let's not forget those other charming things I just have to have, like vintage hankies, tablecloths, old dolls, knick-knacks and other items I can't stand to leave on the shelf at the antique store. Well, I've decided to turn my love of these things with others. I'm opening up a brand new Etsy store. It will be a shopping haven for people who like cool vintage items but want to do their shopping from their home computers. This will be the place where you can find vintage items like chenille blankets, boudoir dolls, chunky brooches, jewelry findings/supplies, fabric, old patterns, hankies, cake toppers, games and game pieces and much, much more. Many of the items listed will be things that can be repurposed into something else.

I have one dilemma, though....I don't know what to name my store. I want something catchy, cool and clever that people will remember. I was steering towards something like "Funk-a-Licious Finds", but wanted to see what other names people can come up with.

This is where you can help me. I'm holding a "NAME MY ETSY STORE" contest that will last through the end of May. Please leave a comment for me with your ideas for unique store names. There is no limit to the amount of suggestions you can give; I encourage you to think out of the box. Nothing is too crazy and all names will be considered. The contest runs all month and will end on May 30, 2009. There must be a minimum of 100 name ideas before I will select a winner. The winner will be announced during the first week of June. The winner will have their blog and/or website featured here on my blog and will also get to select $25.00 of merchandise FREE from my EBay store. Don't worry - you don't have to have an EBay ID to participate. Just pick out any "buy-it-now" item(s) you'd like from my store, and I'll send them to you.

Good luck, everyone! I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. IMPORTANT - Please make sure you leave an email or blog address in your comment so I can contact you if you are the winner.

How about "A Swan Head" using the letters of your name? For your logo you could make the 'S' into a cool swan.
