5 year ETSY shop Anniversary

Five years ago this very day I opened my little Etsy shop.
And what a great five years it has been.
I started by selling my ceramic shuttles and tatting patterns. Then I added lots and lots of hand dyed tatting thread, a few tatting books, hook pens, and SILK. I then ventured into making precious metal shuttles and I will soon be adding ceramic mugs with tatting designs on them.

Now, mind you, I am not one of those Super Etsy Sellers, and I am clearly not doing this for the money (although it would be nice to one day FINALLY post a profit at the end of the year.)

I do this because I have the most awesome and loyal customers on the planet!....HANDS DOWN!

To celebrate YOU my awesome loyal customers and friends I am offering a 10% store wide discount today only. The coupon code is LSMBirthday10 (Make sure to use the coupon code in the coupon code area provided at checkout...your discount will be automatically applied.)

Additionally, I am having ANOTHER giveaway that will last until Feb 26 which just so happens to be my 5 year blogaversary.
I am giving away one of my tatting books, Royal Diadem.


All you have to do is sign up on this post. I will draw the winner on my blogaversary! I only ask that actual tatters sign up please, and if you live outside of the United States please agree to pay shipping.

...and don't forget I still have another giveaway currently going on here.


Happy Valentines Day!!!!

Isdihara said...

Oh my golly! Please add me to your drawing.

Congratulations on your 5-year Etsy shop anniversary AND blog-iversary! I, for one, don't know what I would ever do without your posts and shop.

Count me in for one of those Lacey Mugs, though I'm not at all certain of color. Perhaps that will make my purchasing decision easier? (Probably not, knowing me.)

Did I mention that I peeked into the tatting bag of one of my students from this past summer and found not one, but two skeins of your scrumptious HDT?

Witches Brew and Treebeard. I have taught my students well!

Clyde said...
