We all know it's pretty easy to hop around and shop all over Etsy, Artfire and many other super wonderful arts and craft sites, but sometimes it's a bit daunting and so this was developed (with some generous help from some very wonderful people, I might add!) to be a fun and enjoyable way to shop handmade and support the arts and crafts sector of the small business world during this very busy gift giving season!

Listed below are some pretty cool places to find unique handmade items such as Jewelry (I love buying other jewelry artist's designs - they're so gorgeous!!) and Jewelry related items, such as Beads and Supplies (I can never have enough of these!). There's also handcrafted Toys, Wearable Goods, Bath and Body Products, Candles and items we use everyday such as Pens, but these are handcrafted with some really cool flair!

Some of the participants below have listed their online shops for you to browse through while others have listed their blogs, website or Facebook page which is where you will find information on the wonderful items they create and offer for sale.  (The MiShel Designs Etsy shop is listed in the link list below with everyone else's and there's a clickable link over here on the right side of my blog. I've got a coupon code for 20% off posted in my shop announcements for shoppers as well.)

Each participant has created their own unique shopping experience for you and you'll want to be on the look out for a few that are offering specials, discount codes or coupons and even a possible give-a-way or two!

To start things off, I'm going to be giving away a necklace and earring set here on the MiShel Designs Blog. Everyone who leaves a comment at the bottom of this post either today or tomorrow will be entered in the drawing and the participant will be chosen by and announced here on my blog on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011.
