Etsy Find: Solar Powered Umbrella Charging Station!

I love being at the beach. Growing up, I was only about a half hour drive away – though during tourist season, it took a LOT longer! 🙂 Since my skin burns so easily, I would usually spend a lot of my time hiding under a beach umbrella, hoping I could stay out of the sun long enough to avoid turning the shade of a cooked lobster. I really wish I had today’s Etsy find back then! Meet Greg Gottfried, owner of new Etsy shop SolarSpotUmbrellas. Very recently opened, SolarSpotUmbrellas offers only one item, but it’s definitely a unique one!
 
Hanging out at the beach is great, but what happens if your cell phone battery is running low? I suppose you could run back to your car and charge it there, but no one wants to leave the sand & waves to impatiently wait in their car for their phone to charge. Here’s where today’s Etsy find comes into place…the Solar Powered Umbrella. Greg has created a double use product, a functional and stylish beach umbrella that has two USB ports for charging your electronics while you’re at the beach.
With a built in solar panel that powers the USB ports, you can charge your phone while lounging on the beach without any problem. No sweat!
 
The umbrella itself comes in your choice of color – red, royal blue, black, or navy – and has a 7 foot wide canopy.  It’s currently selling for $165.00, with FREE shipping!
Until next time, stay crafty (and hang out at the beach)!

Etsy Find: Vanity Makeup Mirror with Lights

When I promote my blog posts so I can reach more readers, I use a wide array of social networks – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. While looking on Google+ for an Etsy find to feature on my blog, I came across this video review of a custom vanity mirror. I was pretty impressed! The buyer, melicp88, was really pleased with her purchase, so I checked out the Etsy shop she purchased it from, CustomVanity. Owner Gary Wheeler & I messaged about my intent to share his vanity mirror on my blog, and he gave me a couple code to share with y’all! Use coupon code craftygirl for $20 off your purchase. 🙂
