When you have to buy a gift for a family member or friend.  What is the first thing you think of?  What am I going to get them?  They have everything already!  What do they need?  Would you like to take the struggle out of gift giving?  Let us help you solve that dilemma once and for all, with our Gifts of Sunshine sampler bag!
Don't let it become a frustration,  let us help you brighten someones day with a collection of gifts for one low price. I just gave a friend who has everything and who has very distinctive taste in decorating one of our Cook Lover sampler bags for their Anniversary and they loved everything in the collection.  They are also big time pet lover's with two dogs and a house full of cats.  So, I also included one of our Pet Lover bags and they had a night of laughs watching their cats play with the catnip toys that are in the bag.  Problem solved!

Pick up our Pet Lover's bag while supplies last!  If you would like any of the items in the bag made for your cat or dog that's no problem either.  We love custom orders.  Just contact each vendor in our Marketplace.

1. Marsha, what are you working on this year?  My focus this year is to offer specialty themes for my hollow books, such as wedding and special collectors themes.  I do have some ready to ship in my shop and I will also take custom orders, so if you have something in mind that you would like me to design for you just stop by my shop and convo me.

2.  What have you learned as an Etsy seller?   Etsy is always changing the way that the customer finds us, so I regularly update the listings in my shop.  This is very time consuming and I have found that through search engine optimization (SEO) I also had to make sure that the title of each item matches my shop announcement and the product sections that are in my shop.  As a seller it is important not to overlook the importance of keeping your shop updated regularly.

3.  Marsha would you share one fun fact about yourself?   I enjoy being able to get my products in stores in my local area.  I enjoy meeting local shop owners while getting my products known in the community.

  1. This fun spring themed address book is great for keeping track of all your passwords online.

  2. There were so many lovely items in the sampler bags last year, it is hard to choose just one as my favorite. The mug rug fabric was my favorite. It matched my furniture perfectly! I keep most of the items and a few I gave as gifts to friends.

  3. There was so many great items in the bags, I kept most of the items, I am waiting for the right person to share with,and I gave the crochet cup mugs for gifts that was in the bag as a gift.... they loved them.
    So since they were such a great gift, I bought more for gifts and they loved them too.

  4. I got the one with the crochet cup mug and fell in love with it, and bought more for gifts and they loved them.
