Etsy is always a fairly amusing place in which to get lost. One can find tasteful works of art, turn themselves into Nicolas Cage, or buy serial killer jewelry if they’re so inclined. Every now and then, you come across something endearing and adorable (assuming, that is, you don’t find Jeffrey Dahmer earrings endearing). Case in point, Etsy’s The Shire General Store, a shop run by a 10-year-old that sells custom-made clay Lord of the Rings figurines.
With his mom Susan’s help (like with any good project), 10-year-old Paul Blazek crafts and sells adorable polymer clay Lord of the Rings figures that you can put on your desk and work and claim your nephew made specially for you. From Gandalf to a set of three goblins, the figurines only run from $7 to $12, so if you like adorable, you can probably afford a figurine or two.
