I hate to admit it, but it’s coming up to the end of summer. Although to be honest, the summer has been so rubbish I think what I mean is the end of hoping that summer might pick up a bit.

Anyway, enough. September is not only the end of summer, but the anniversary of opening my shop on etsy.

What a great year I’ve had. I have learnt so much and met so many fantastic people. I’ve learnt how to make a blog, take much better pictures, market myself, network, budget and much more besides.

Etsy has helped me build up local networks right here in Hebden Bridge, which sounds rather strange, when it’s an American site. I would not have met Hannah (Radiance Lighting), Chrissie (Hat Therapy) or Sally (graphic designer) and half of my sales have been to UK customers, and most of them local to here.

So, to celebrate my ‘etsyversary’ and just to eek out summer a little bit longer I am having a month long promotion.

Free worldwide shipping and 10% off everthing in my little etsy shop (this will be refunded via paypal after purchase).
Items here are reduced further.

So why not pop in and treat yourself to a unique handmade piece of jewellery which you can treasure and wear, or find that unusual gift for a loved one this Christmas.

    Isn't it funny how the internet is worldwide yet oddly manages to connect you with people so close by :).

    I'm fairly local to you too. I fully intend to ask my hubby to treat me to one of your items for our anniversary in October.
