CraftyGirl’s Featured Shop: CluzAccessories

Ladies: this post is for you! If you’re anything like me, you want to wear that gorgeous strapless dress…but there’s no way a strapless bra is going to cut it by itself. Check out CluzAccessories, an Etsy shop that makes jeweled bra straps that work with (using the hooks) or without (using the pins) a bra. Not worried about support, but you want to make sure your dress doesn’t fall down? It works for that, too! It’s also a great way to add a little bit of shine to any outfit you wear, whether it’s for a wedding, formal occasion or even a dinner date. Based in West Palm Beach, FL, CluzAccessories has glowing reviews and descriptive listings. Here’s my top 5 from CluzAccessories:

It’s fall!

I don’t know about you, but fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, and the colorful, crunchy leaves. (And there’s always something to be said for things that are pumpkin flavored.)
Fall is also the perfect time to stay cozy and warm. I’ve added a few new ear warmers at CraftyGirl Merchandise……
..and I’ll be adding more colors soon!
Until next time…stay crafty (and warm)!

MyMisi.com – Buy and Sell Handmade! (Sponsored Post)

logo

Handmade, artisan products are getting bigger and better every day. Several marketplaces are available online to buy and sell handmade items, and their popularity is only growing. Today’s post focuses on MyMisi, an online marketplace for buying and selling handmade items such as jewelry, crocheted accessories, and more. “MISI” stands for “Make It, Sell It”, and the folks at MyMisi have made it their mission to bring quality, one of a kind handmade pieces to the online masses. With the success of Misi UK, it was decided to branch into the United States handmade community, and MyMisi was born.

As a buyer, you have wonderful perks: Being able to include your own flair of creativity in custom-made items, learning new crafts with purchased patterns, and being a part of a friendly and active community. You can even search for bargains and deals in their On Sale section!

There are also many perks to being a seller on MyMisi as well, including $0.20 listing fees, a small commission of 3% and listings lasting for 12 months, as opposed to some other sites’ shorter listing times. The best thing of all, in my opinion, is that they have Paypal as one of the payment options…so no matter whether you’re a buyer or a seller, you’ve got the safety of PayPal in your transaction!

Here are some of the items on MyMisi that I found interesting:

Whipped Sugar Scrub
Whipped Sugar Scrub, $10.95

Beautiful Baltic Amber Necklace and Earrings Set
Beautiful Baltic Amber Necklace and Earrings Set, $75.70

4 Christmas knitting patterns robin, snowman, santa bear
4 Christmas knitting patterns, $10

There are new items being added on MyMisi every day, and you never know what treasures you’ll find!

Until next time…stay crafty!
