Wanted: Crafters/Vendors for ” A Crafty Christmas Giveaway!”


I am looking for crafters and home based business owners to participate in a HUGE Christmas Giveaway.

The purpose is to not only increase your traffic/ “likes” on facebook but, it is also to make connections with other crafters and show support to those trying to get their home based business started.

Each vendor/business is required to donate a prize to this event. It can be a physical prize, gift card for your business, PayPal/Amazon credit, etc. Minimum value of $10.
* If donating a gift card to your store/business there must be at least 1 item that can be purchased for that price.
**A photo must be submitted of the prize being offered.

There is no cost to participate like some other big blog giveaways require. It is free to participate other than the item you wish to donate and postage costs if applicable.

No, I do not have a large following so I cannot say how much extra traffic you will get….. but, I have some contacts who do that will be more than willing to share this giveaway. 🙂

People talk, and if someone is new to your business, wins your prize, likes it…they are more than likely to buy more and tell others about it. Word of mouth…and word of blog can be a great resource in getting more business!

Vendors are required to ship physical items to the verified winner’s address within 2 weeks(posted date of 2 weeks post giveaway) of the giveaway ending. (More info in vendor application)

All vendors will be required to share the giveaway at least once daily during the event.

This event will be shared on multiple contest sites, blogs and Facebook pages. I do not have a list as of yet, as I would like to make sure I have vendors/crafters lined up before asking a site to promote the giveaway…can’t really promote a giveaway if there are no prizes! 😉

I will be sharing each business page at least once as a highlighted post on my own pages to give everyone an extra boost in recognition.

More information(vendor applications) will be available in the upcoming weeks. My hope is to have this giveaway begin November 1st.

If you are still interested in participating please send an email to : fightingpoverty@hotmail.CA
with the subject line:

More information will be available soon, but, if you are interested please send me an email!

Thank you!

Displays – how to draw customers in

Tis the season for Christmas Craft shows. I always have a hard time setting up a nice table. While my tables aren’t horrible, they are definitely lacking. I have two craft shows coming up and hope to do well at them, as whatever I make will be the money we have to spend on Christmas this year.

One of my newest pieces

I also have a few pieces on ebay, you can check them out here:

I offer free shipping worldwide on my pieces, so you can imagine that I do not make much of a profit. It is more important for me to create fun pieces that will be enjoyed and keep them at a reasonable price, then to over price them and gauge people’s pocket books.

If you are also going to be showcasing  your products at an upcoming craft show, check out the link below for some help on making your display stand out!
