Black Friday-Cyber Monday Preview 2018

I went shopping with my daughter on Monday. It was a lot of fun, especially since we got to enjoy all the holiday goodies without the holiday crowds. Granted, we also didn’t get to experience the sale prices we would have had later this week, but that was okay because trip was really about spending time together more than actually buying stuff.

Holiday shopping is real though, and the upcoming weekend is the time to look for deals. When it comes to my own shops here and on Etsy, I’m ready!

Cyber Monday Sale 2018

The sale begins Friday morning, and will end Monday night. No coupon code required.

If you’re shopping on Etsy (whether it’s my shop or elsewhere) I highly recommend signing up for Ebates. You can get money back on your purchases there, as well as lots of other retailers. You also get a bonus of $10 after you’ve spent your first $25. I’ve earned almost $100 since I signed up, and that’s without even trying very hard. 😉

I have several sewing patterns in my shop at this point, and I’m adding more all the time. They’re all available as a downloadable or paper, ready-to-ship versions. Both will be 30% off.

I have many options for sewing-themed t-shirts, mugs, totes, and posters right now. They make great gifts for people who sew or quilt! After the holidays I’ll be discontinuing many of these to simplify a bit, and there’s also an ordering deadline of November 27th for delivery by December 21st. If you’re eyeing something don’t wait to snatch it up. That section of my shop will be 20% off.

Most of these same designs are available to purchase printed on fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap at Spoonflower. I don’t know if they’re offering any discounts over the weekend, but it’s worth checking.

Yes I Sew Gift Wrap

Zazzle offers many of these as greeting cards, and I have a 2019 calendar there as well. They are giving a whopping 60% off those items through Thanksgiving (with coupon code HOLIDAYZSAVE), with new discounts coming for the weekend.

Feeling the shopping bug yet? I’ll put a quick reminder at the top of this week’s Festive Friday to lead you back here if you’d like to take part.

In the meantime, enjoy your Thanksgiving, and know that I am thankful for every one of you!

Spring Crafty Wonderland

The bi-annual Crafty Wonderland craft sale has already come and gone here in Portland, but it seems like a shame to visit a craft show without sharing it with all of you.  Also, thanks to this new thing called the internet, all of these creative retailers are available 24/7, year-round.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 1

This was my daughter’s first visit to Crafty Wonderland, so she walked around with her jaw hanging open a bit.  She’s knee-deep in wedding plans, so the promise of a Wedding Wonderland Section drew her in.  I’ll admit, we were a bit disappointed because we didn’t really see anything that was specifically a wedding item, but rather things that could be used in some capacity surrounding a wedding, like gifts.  But she enjoyed it anyway, finding a couple of things she couldn’t leave without, like this raw honey from Mickelberry Gardens.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 2

One of the first things I couldn’t walk away from was this mini felting kit from Yarnarchy.  I’ve wanted to try felting for years now, and this tiny kit seemed like a pretty manageable place to start.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 3

I also found this cute wood sewing machine ornament.  I wish I could tell you the name of the vendor, but I don’t have the slightest idea.  My advice to those of you participating in craft sales:  make sure your business info is included with any item you sell. 

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 4

I tend to grab cards from vendors if I think I might want to order something from them later.  Travelust had pretty map necklaces that can be customized with any map.  I’m thinking a Boring, Oregon necklace would be fun.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 5

Bread and Badger sells sandblasted coffee cups, one of which has Bigfoot on it and might end up in my son’s Christmas stocking.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 6

Illustrated Playing Cards sells, you guessed it, illustrated playing cards.  Each card has a different drawing on it, with the entire deck themed around a city.  I think these would make a great local gift for an out-of-towner.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 7

This is the second time I’ve made a purchase from Hedgehog Toffee.  It’s the perfect texture, light and crisp.  That generous sample they hand me always pulls me in.  I’d show you a picture of it, but it barely made it to our house.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 8

I try to not completely empty my wallet at this thing, but since the show was the day before my birthday, I decided I’d find myself a necklace.  My daughter and I checked out every one there, before going back to Oliotto and buying this one. 

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 9

I’ve worn it three times and have received several compliments every time.  And I haven’t even worn it with the reverse, stainless steel side out yet.

Spring Crafty Wonderland - Crafty Staci 10

I enjoy this sale every time I go and love finding new artists and revisiting those I’ve seen before.  My daughter and I have already made plans to attend the winter sale.  Hopefully, one day you’ll find me on the other side of one of those vendor tables!

Spring Etsy Sale

I’m having a big Spring Sale in my Etsy shop!  I decided to take a hard look at what was I had on hand and be brutal about making room for some new things.  Kill your darlings, so they say.  I’m not going to pretend to understand why some of these cute items are still here while others are gone, but it’s time to move on.

Everything below is currently 50% off the original price.  But wait, there’s more - through this Friday, April 18, 2014, use the code SPRINGSHIPPING for free shipping on any order within the United States!  For my international customers, use the code SPRINGWORLD for a $4 discount on shipping.

Anything here would make great a Mother’s Day gift!

Black Friday Weekend Sale 2013

Before I get into the sale portion of this, I’d like to wish you all a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving.  I hope you’re able to spend some time with loved ones, enjoy some great food and reflect on what you’re thankful for in your life.  One of the things I’m grateful for is the fact that all of you choose to spend some of your time here with me.  Thank you!

Once the dinner has been put away and demoted to leftovers and the annual viewing of whatever movie your family is into is over, some of you are probably going to move to the shopping portion of the weekend.  I’m not going to brave the crowds out in the real world this year, but I do intend to do some browsing online.  If your plan is similar to mine, I have some deals in my own shops to pass along to you.  Be sure to read all the way to the bottom for a special additional discount code, just for my newsletter and blog readers!

Memorial Day Sale

How did we get so close to the end of May already?  Between Mother’s Day, my son’s last track meet, helping my daughter make something special to give her bridesmaids (you’ll see those after they all do) and accompanying my husband to a police academy graduation, my week zipped by so fast I barely saw it.  Since life is already in a frenzy right now, I think it’s time for a sale! Aside from Black Friday, I don’t like to plan sales for my Etsy shop.  I prefer to just have them when the mood strikes me.  It keeps things interesting.  I’m only advertising this one to my followers, so you won’t see anything about it when you visit my shop directly.  Starting today and through Memorial Day next Monday, you can use the code MEMORIALDAY2013 to receive free shipping on any order within the United States!

In case you haven't used a coupon code on Etsy before, it works like this:  click the green "Add to Cart" button for the item you want to order.  That will take you to a page showing the item and how you'll pay.  On the right side of the screen, under the payment options, it says "apply shop coupon code" in blue.  Click that and a box will appear.  Type MEMORIALDAY2013 into the box, click "Apply" and your shipping should show as $0.00.

This includes anything in my shop, including custom items, but I have a little bonus for you.  I have about 30 items that are completed but I haven’t listed yet.  I’m going to show you what they are here, but they won’t appear in my shop until after the sale is over.  They’ll only be available to those of you who read my blog.  If there’s something here you like, just click the link above or below the photo.  It will take you to a custom listing in my shop.  In the Note to Seller, just let me know which item shown here you wanted.  Be sure to use the free shipping code on these items too!
