The Savvy Craft Etsy Gift Card Giveaway!!!

I am unreasonably excited to share this post with you all, like way excited.

In the past few years I've become pretty hooked on a sweet little website selling crafty, homemade, and vintage items from small sellers.  Many of you may know it as Etsy.com.  Being able to find adorable, quality-made, and unique clothing, jewelry, home decor, gifts, and many other items all in one place is fabulous.  It's driven me to look further for better-crafted items from smaller sellers rather than always running out to the big box stores to buy just one more piece of cheap plastic something made overseas.

Thankfully, in the recent few years, I've also made friends with some ridiculously crafty and creative mamas - one of which being my friend Modern June.  MJ rocks my socks off at pretty much anything handmade and beautiful, and you may have seen a few of her camera straps and scarves on the likes of daily deal sites like GroopDealz.com.  However, in the recent past MJ began to notice that more and more of these sites are beginning to sell more and more manufactured items & less and less handmade creations.

So, MJ decided to create...



The Savvy Craft is a brand new daily deal site set to open shop online on June 1st, and it will feature daily deals on only handmade or homegrown items.  Because MJ is a mom who works from home making and selling her own items through her Etsy shop, it became really important to her that the work at home mom and handmade crafter are still being represented when selling their lovingly created treasures.

I can seriously stand behind this line of thinking as there have been several times I've ordered an item off of a normal, non-handmade daily deal site that has not been up to par quality-wise.  A shirt I'd recently ordered from a larger deals site even came to me once with a button already missing!

When you're buying from a handmade business like The Savvy Craft, you know that these items are made with love and are created with quality in mind.  I am super excited for the site to open shop.  A few of the upcoming teasers I can share with you are:


- Headbands and hair clips from Hello Charlotte James   {ummm... hello Little Lady accessories!}

- Resin bobby pins from Studio 228

- Reusable snack bags from Daisy & June


& - Lace button earrings from Shared Joy

In celebration of the big kick-off in the next few weeks, here's a little message from the sweet and savvy MJ herself:

"The Savvy Craft is all about support and love of all things handmade.  It is our pledge to feature only handmade craft artisans and their amazing creations.  To show everyone how gorgeous handmade can be, we are giving away a 25$ Etsy gift card!"

  1. I'm undecided! Maybe the Daisy and June reusable snack packs, but maybe the earrings! I haven't received any new jewelry in a long time.
