I HEART Etsy - Valentine's Day GIVEAWAY Event!!
I love, love, LOVE Etsy!! If you have never visited Etsy, it's an online market place where artists and individuals sell anything and everything HANDMADE. I have found some of THE CUTEST items on Etsy!! I love it because not only are you supporting individuals in their endeavors to make money for their families, but you're getting one of a kind items that are DIFFERENT at a GREAT price...usually!! They also have an alchemy section where you can post items you want and individuals bid on your request. For example, I had a custom wood sword and shield set made for my son - painted with a fleur-de-lis on the front and personalized with his name for $25!! About a year ago I posted a request for a Super Hero Felt Board Set. I had an individual tell me she would create it with 20 felt pieces - characters, sayings, cars, etc...for $10 shipped!! You really can't go wrong on Etsy. You will LOVE IT!
Now for the fun news? Champagne Wisdom will be sponsoring an All Things Etsy Valentine Giveaway Event - yahoo!! The giveaways will begin toward the middle of January and will include children's items, jewelry, soap and more to give away to readers - as well as some discounts to Etsy Shops SPECIFICALLY for Champagne Wisdom readers!! If you've never bought from Etsy, you'll definitely want to be watching for the giveaways to start. And if you already love Etsy, like me, then you KNOW you won't want to miss it!!
What can you do to get ready for the giveaways NOW? Well, I'm glad you asked... ;)
For every new subscriber/follower you send to Champagne Wisdom, you will receive 10, yes 10, additional entries into EACH Etsy Valentine Giveaway.
This is how it works...tell your friends and family about Champagne Wisdom and when they subscribe, they need to leave a comment on THIS post telling me if they subscribed via email or as a follower and leave me the user's name and EMAIL ADDRESS of the person who sent them. That could potentially add up to lots of extra entries for you!! And as a bonus for your friends, they'll receive the 10 extra entries as well!! Yay...now...let's get ready to spread the word and celebrate ETSY...
