spread the indie love: handpicked handmade goodies complimentary with all purchases!

For a while, I was subscribing to The Sampler, and a few customers who bought from me during that period obtained little free sample gifts with their purchases. I really enjoyed being able to thank my customers in this way, and so I decided to continue this by buying little samples from other Etsy shops! Many of the incredible folks at Etsy responded with really great ideas for samples, and I ended up buying quite a bit of yummy samples from a couple of shops. I chose items that I thought fit with the feel of my shop, were small and light, and that I hoped would be useful to my customers. I wish that I had enough moolah to buy something from everyone, but unfortunately, I had to stop myself from going too crazy. So, if you are a customer, from now on, you will get a little gift with any purchase over $25! If you have a preference, please indicate it in messages to seller, and I will try my best to accommodate you, although I can’t promise that your first choice will be available (plus, I kept a few for myself =P). So, here are the current actual available samples, in no particular order other than category and date they arrived at my place =) :

Body butter from BathLife: bathlife.etsy.com

Aren’t they all gorgeous and amazing? I am constantly blown away by the amount of pride and love that Etsy sellers put into their shops, products and customer service, and am so proud to be part of this community!! I hope that my customers will love the little samples. Enjoy! =)

all set up

we're finally all set up in our new place! i spent some time worrying about how my new workspace is going to look... in our old place, my supplies took over the entire living room, so much so that we could never have guests over. =( Anyways, now the only part of my apartment that will be messy is the caged- in section of our bedroom with my nice antique mahogany desk workspace! Why is it caged? We figured that it'll maximise my time with pequito to have his home around my workspace! Sometimes I'm making stuff, and he's licking my feet with bunny kisses asking for attention. He's such a cutie!!

Anyways, lots of updates in my Etsy shop, so take a look! it takes more time than I currently have to add entries to my website, so I'll be adding new stuff mainly to the Etsy shop for now. Some favourites:

Also, time is quite overdue to pick the recipient of a free pair of my high-powered fashionista earrings, the free gift for August! For those who are not subscribed, I offer a free piece of jewelry to one person on my mailing list each month, so email me at pequitobun@gmail.com to join the list if you would like to find out about sales, updates etc, as well as have a chance to win free pequitobun jewelry. =) The item for that month is usually posted on the front page of my website.

This month, the winner is unbreak******@hotmail.com. I had my boyfriend say a number and that corresponded to the above email address when sorted alphabetically. (poor boy, he's building me an IKEA stepstool and they mislabelled the screws, so he had to start all over!!!). Please contact me to arrange for shipping! Thank you for reading, guys! Have a great weekend! I'll figure out soon which the free gift for September will be!
