This year, I have volunteered to run our school's annual Christmas Shoppe. It's a fund raising event which allows the students of St. Paul to shop for their family members for Christmas, during the school day. I've worked hard to find some high quality, affordable items for all family members, and it has not been an easy task. There have been some great shops from Etsy who have stepped up and provided some excellent items at super prices so that this shop can have some awesome gifts!
I want to recognize some of these great shops.
www.2MuchYarn.etsy.com is based out of Ottawa, Canada and has created some adorable lip balm cozy key chains that I will fill with handmade lip balms from http://www.concordsoap.etsy.com/, who is also providing bath/body sets of handmade soap and body butters. http://www.mottcrochetgifts.etsy.com/ is crocheting some very cool earwarmers for boys and girls and http://www.mommyslittlecritters.etsy.com/ has created some fun, whimsical soaps for kids. http://www.jewelry4ubiz.etsy.com/ made some adorable fabric covered hair clips in assorted colors for girls and toddlers and http://www.flirtbuttons.etsy.com/ handmade bottle openers for the dads and grandpas in "manly" fabrics that are also a keychain. Your coffee will stay cozy with some coffee cup cozies from http://www.zippityduda.etsy.com/ and http://www.bowsnbands.etsy.com/ has created ribbon headbands especially for girls. Our very loved Pre-K teacher is also donating her awesome keychains for the shop and her etsy shop is http://www.gubsibags.etsy.com/.
I'm still working on a few more purchases from some awesome shops on http://www.etsy.com/ and have many other items that I have found through my searches of local shops.
My goal is to have everyone happy with the gifts they recieve and maybe they will come back to these great shops and finish their holiday shopping with them!
I will not have my store items in the Christmas Shoppe, so if you like my gemstone jewelry and creations, please shop online as sales continue weekly OR wait for the Holiday Splendor event coming soon!
