100-Sale Give-Away!

Friends, I am so happy and proud!

My etsy shop just hit 100 sales! I know this is not much compared to many shops, but it was a small goal I set for myself, and I knew when I got there, I wanted to celebrate with all of you!

For weeks now, I've been chatting with my blog friends and fellow etsy owners about doing a give-away. My very first one! I contacted a few of my VERY favorite people and asked them to join in the celebration. Each and every item here is here because I LOVE IT.

And I love what I do, and I love all of you, so let's just have a big LOVE fest, shall we?


First up? An awesome tie from Flapper Girl. I met Christine when I won one of her amazing ties in a give-away, and not only is it amazing (I freaking love it!), but she is just as sweet as can be.





When I started my little shop, I ordered a custom mini strawberry stamp from Blossom Art Stamps. I've gone back many a time for customized stamps, and Martina is just delightful! Her stamps are always better than what I imagined. She even made a stamp of our Band of Thrifters logo! If you are ever in the market for a logo stamp, check her out. Her shop is also full of cute! cute! stamps, from kitties to typewriters to bicycles. The best part? She's offering up three accent stamps and a mini ink pad! (Use code promo10 to receive 10% off stock stamps all week!)




This local lovely is offering up an 8 x 10 or 8.5 x 11 print from the Yellow Button Shop! Your choice! There are so many beauties to choose from, but this is one of my favorites:
 
Etsy // Twitter // Facebook // Blog

Now, I have met some really awesome vintage sellers on my journey, because I am always on the hunt for amazing vintage and I have so much respect and love for others who are out there scouting their hearts out to fill up their shops (and closets - who are we kidding?). These gals are my inspiration. They recently opened their own B&M shop in Jersey, and I have loved watching their journey, and seeing them make their dreams come true. They are as sweet as can be, and I really do love them. Jeannine and Erin of School of Vintage are offering up the MOST amazing vintage snack set. I have one and I use it ALL the time:


And this is the one you can win!

Great vintage soul-sister sister minds think alike! Although, this one is way cuter then ours! hah! Lucky YOU! I hope to visit these pretties and their shop one day. Road trip to Jersey anyone?


The lovely Brittany of Snappy Rockfish Soap is offering a bar of home-made Lemon Lavender soap. What a great scent for the kitchen! I ordered the Charcoal and Green Tea facial bar a bit back, and I really love it. Because she's such a sweetheart, you get to try one of her amazing, homemade soaps! Be sure to check out her darling shop, and say hello! Use code STRAWBERRY for 15% off your order, too!




I met Zoe of Ladybird Likes when she did a give-away on The Dainty Squid. Now, I didn't win, but I loved her necklaces so much I ordered two. They arrived in pretty packaging, and she even included a little gift each time. Since then, I've gotten to know Zoe, and she's just the bee's knees. And her shop is freaking amazing, and I want everything in it! Lucky for you she is offering up a butterfly necklace!





And, just because I freaking LOVE this chapstick and I am crazy obsessed with it, I am throwing in a tube of Chai-Spice-flavored Hurraw! lip balm in this mix. It's seriously the best lip balm I've ever used. Obsessed. (And it's all natural, vegan, and raw!) You can find it online and at American Apparel.



Want to win this crazy collection of awesomeness? All you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment with one thing you are grateful for today (oh and your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win!). That's it!

I'll go first.

I am so very grateful for you and for all of the amazing women I have met on my blogging adventure.

If you REALLY want to win, you can heart each shop on etsy (that's an extra 5 entries)! Show these gals some love; they rock my little world.

You can enter the give away until next Friday, June 29 at midnight. I will announce the winner on the following Monday! Good luck!

Lots of Love,

S.S.

  28. Today I am grateful that I have the day off because it means that I have a job from which to take a day off. So yay for having a job!

    Look at you and that huge giveaway although it is not surprising that you got so many people involved as you are one of the sweetest business owner I have met!
    You know, I may have to order myself a butterfly necklace too. One of my coworker has a stamp that signs his name, and I have been jealous of it, so I totally need a stamp to sign stuff except that it wouldn't be my name but something extremely geeky like a DNA molecule or something similar!
    I am happy to see that solid soaps are making a come back, enough with plastic bottles already!
    That print of MN would rock my office :)
    And do you wear the tie over button down shirt? I can see myself wearing it as a necklace. I kinda collect tie necklaces, ok I totally do collect tie necklace shhhh it is a secret because it is awfully kitchy (I do wear them though).
    Also tins!!! She has a rooster plate in her store that would be a perfect present for a friend.

    I have favorited all the shops on etsy but I am too lazy to write separate posts, I hope that's ok.

    Well I am off to enjoy not working by getting my hair done!
    Have a great weekend :)
