Supporting Women in Business – A New Way to Shop Handmade!

Crafty Attic Daily Deals Site

Introducing a New Way to Buy Handmade…. Crafty Attic! is a brand new site that just launched in September. Their goal is to provide crafters a new venue for sharing their amazing handmade products – as well as give lovers of those crafty goods a way to purchase them at big discounts!

Women’s Small Business Month

Did you know that the month of October is officially Women’s Small Business Month? Shopping at Crafty Attic is a great way to show your support for other women in business! When you buy a handmade item, you’re using YOUR power as a consumer to help support another hard working mom, instead of just a big corporation. And in return you get one-of-a-kind, handmade, quality goods – not some mass-produced item. Love that.

Gentry's Closet, Collage of Hair Accessories for Baby GirlsGentry’s Closet

If you have any little girls in your life, you simply MUST check out the amazing Gentry’s Closet shop on Etsy!

Custom Bows and Baby Accessories

When the owner of Gentry’s Closet emailed me to see if I’d be interested in partnering for a giveaway, the first thing that I did was head over to check out her shop- To my surprise, this was the same shop that I’d been checking out the previous week, and had added a couple of her adorable clips to my boards on Pinterest! Small world sometimes…

Tiny Fashionista…

The clips she sent over for us to check out are amazing- One, they’re absolutely adorable, obviously. But they’re also some of the best quality hair clips I’ve ever seen. The ribbon is top notch, all of the details are perfect, and my favorite- on the inside of the clippy, there is a soft, no-slip type padding, that really helps these stay in Abby’s hair. I’ve never seen this on other accessories, and it’s awesome.

Since she’s a toddler now, and a little busy-body all day, she wouldn’t sit still for a photo session. The top two pics are the clips that Gentry’s Closet sent us to review, and the bottom pic is one of my other VERY favorites in her shop. I’ll get some fun photos of her modeling these great accessories later this week- stay tuned!

Win a Gift Certificate to Gentry’s Closet!

One lucky Sunshine and Sippy Cups fan will win a Gift Certificate to shop at Gentry’s Closet! I’m so excited for one of you guys to get to check out her work for yourself- You will NOT be disappointed!
