Rock ‘n’ Shop With Lenka

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Australian singer-songwriter, Lenka is best known for her single, “The Show,” which gained her worldwide popularity. Lenka’s music is synonymous with a whimsical, crafty visual style, almost always created with her partner James Gulliver Hancock and can be seen in her album artwork, videos and stage sets. After majoring in sculpture at art school in Sydney and performing with Aussie film projection indie rockers, Decoder Ring, Lenka sees the visual aspect of music as having the utmost importance. Lenka has become known for her live shows, which create a world that quickly became known as Lenkaland — filled with child-like motifs and fun, flirty vintage clothes. It was natural for Lenka to be a fan of Etsy, so today she’s here to share her Etsy picks. She’ll also be sharing her latest singles and music video and sharing more of her favorites in Etsy’s interactive chat room, the Virtual Labs, on Thursday, November 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET. This means it will be 10:30 a.m. on Friday in Sydney. Mark your calendars!

I have always been a craft kid. I remember making fabric-covered books as a 9-year-old and I still enjoy embroidery, Fimo and papier-mache. But I’ve always loved entertaining people and making music too, which kind of took over as a career choice. Now I try to mix the two together! And my personal style is definitely influenced by my inner “craft kid.” Selecting these items for Etsy has been really fun for me as I love and appreciate all the other craft kids out there!
