Holiday Discount Directory ETSY SHOPs

This year I plan on featuring different shops once a week, in a holiday discount directory.
I know my shop does not hold the gift for everyone but you should still be able to save money while spending money on others. This past weekend I held a raffle for shops on etsy to have a spotlight feature. Do not fret those that are on a team with me,  I will do a feature that will send people to the discount lists for the teams on etsy that I am on. I can not feature eveyone at one time, I would not get anything done at my house.
So without further a do, for this week's winner's are:
Be sure to check their shop announcements or contact the shop owners if you can't seem to get the code to work. It maybe etsy overwhelmed with sales. They will be glad to work with you.
Blast Out Friday will return after Thanksgiving which is seperate from the Holiday Discount Directory. Next Feature...non etsy shops

Thank you Tuesday

Thank you, to everyone who has patiently waited for our little creator, to finish the half marathon training, and actually do the half marathon.
We are proud to announce that our creator,not only finished the training but completed the Bass Pro Shop Cohick Half Marathon on Sunday November 4th, 2012. It took 2 hours 54 minutes 48 seconds to complete. This is with an injuried foot that still isn't happy about running to walking then running full speed ahead just to finish.
The creator is currently RESTING. This means hydrating stretching out the latic acid build up and literarily sleeping during the day.
Please leave some love in the comments to let her know how proud of her you are. It would mean a bunch to her right now.
We want to thank all the shops on etsy that have featured her items in a treasury since Saturday.
Listed below are all the great treasuries of gift guides for the holiday season that we are currently in.
Please click and see each one if you can.
If we missed anyone, we apologize we are going off a list created by our little runner who is exhaugsted and half here. She says to tell yah, a big fat THANK YOU!

Black Friday Coupon Code Early Release

I know its been a while since we have posted anything that shows the type of personality or care that goes into beautiful swag store handmade locations. I want to apologize for that.

We have been quit busy, not just creating but listening to those around us lately. The main thing we have heard is that things are just so outrageously unaffordable, not budget friendly for purchasing, or we have to choose to go without food to provide christmas for our kids or family members (grown children).

So, I thought long and hard about what we could do to make the holidays a little easier on those around us with or without money.

So, instead of making a big profit this year, we are going to just cover the cost of what it takes to make many of the items in our shop locations. Etsy prices in our shop are going to go down when you use the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY2012 for 50% off at check out; beautifulswagstore . This coupon code will expire November 21nd, 2012. We will release our Cyber Monday Coupon that day as well. Please note will be out of the workshop from November 21nd 2012 throught November 24th 2012.

The only items that  can't be discounted any more is our DIY KITS for body scrubs/ facial scrubs, and hair accessories diy kits.

 We will combine shipping costs and refund any differences to you if there are any. We can also send your purchase to the receive upon you notifying us of the change of address at the time of purchase through the buyer note section in your order form online.

Our other locations, at zibbet ~beautifulswagstore , beautifulswagstore.ecrater , , and are already discounted down to account for less selling /transaction fees using these sites. If there is something on one of these sites that you want but feel the price is out of your budget. Contact us at we will be happy to work with you to make it work for your budget this season.

Please know we truly understand that things have to fit within your means, we are here for you to the best of our abilities. Please truly have a wonderful happy holidays this year.

coming soon, a coordinating wrapped headband and a ribbon flower with a singer silk flower center with the same theme
coming soon a coordinating wrapped headband
There will be a coordinating wrapped headband available as well, not yet released for purchase.
