Nominate Your Favorite Etsy Shop or Handmade Shop

As I posted earlier this year, I am making changes to my blog and to my commitment to buy more handmade items or items from Etsy sellers. You can help by nominating your favorite shops and I will look at them and list them on my blog if they fit what I am looking for.

Please, make sure the shop is up and running. I just removed one because they have been closed since before Christmas and she has not reopened and I feel personally that doesn't give my readers the best experience they can have.

I have no ties to any of these shops, I do not receive free gifts, I don't win their monthly giveaways, I do not receive any royalties of any sort. I list shops that I would want to shop from. Perhaps they are stay at home moms, perhaps I have done business with them in the past, they recycle items into better items, whatever the case is, I feel they deserve mention and our business.

I am still deciding how to spend my January homemade money. I really want a tea cozy for my morning tea, but I also love polymer clay jewelry as well as other jewelry, there are candles, crocheted items, gift cards, birdhouses, etc. And of course, I need to purchase some quilt fabric for my son and his wife and their new baby.

I will keep you posted on my decision, bu in the meantime, send me your suggestions, we need to help each other as much as we can.

I found your blog tonight and thought you might be interested in our handmade tea cozies. We don't have an Etsy shop but, our cozies are available for purchase online @ our Tea Cozy Shop

We are a small family owned business based in Northern California. Each tea cozy is made by my mother-in-law and myself.

Anyways, if you get a chance come by and check us out.
