Holiday Gift Bazaar

I'm excited for the second annual Holiday Gift Bazaar!
I did it last year and was surprised at the amount of shops who participated.
I love handmade and I love supporting it!
I've sold handmade before and I know the hard work that goes into each product.
My desire with the Holiday Gift Bazaar is to not only create a "one stop shop" for you to get your Holiday shopping done but also to encourage shopping handmade!
(I'll stop saying handmade...I promise ;) )
If you're a "buyer" like I will be this year then the following information is for you.
"Sellers" keep reading... your information is right below :)
Those of you who are like me and will not be selling goods this upcoming Christmas season...
my desire is to create one place for you to get all of your shopping done.
I'm hoping to cover everything from babies to adults.
To the left of my blog you will find the Holiday Gift Bazaar button.
If you wouldn't mind would you put it on the side of your blog?
Help me to spread the word to other buyers and sellers about the Holiday Gift Bazaar.
The more the merrier :)
The following information is for you!

Here are the details:


This includes the following...

-Your Shop's Ad in constant rotation along the side of my blog for the months of
October, November AND December.
That's three whole months!!!
Break it down and that's less than $14 a month.

-Your shop will be included on the Holiday Gift Bazaar Page.
On this page you will have the opportunity to display
up to 4 pictures of your product (I will turn them into a collage),
offer a discount code to my readers,
as well as 1-4 sentences letting the readers know what it is you sell.

-Once a month (October, November and December) I will be doing a post
featuring ALL of the shops participating.
This will be a time again for you to offer the readers a discount if you choose
as well as to show off your work through pictures.


If you would like your shop to be featured on it's own (in addition to the group feature),
for $20 you can purchase your own Feature Post.
This includes your choice of month (October, November or December).
If you want to be featured more than one month that is great!
It's $20 per month.

The Feature Post would include 4-6 pictures of your products as well
as a detailed write up about your shop and the products you offer.
A great way to make your shop stand out!

*You must be part of the Holiday Gift Bazaar to be eligible for this option*

Reserve your spot now!
The Gift Bazaar will be going live on October 1st and ending December 31st.
