Love and Hope

I love Etsy and have had three separate shops since beginning there in November 2008.  Originally had jewelry and handcrafted fabric items in my first shop.  I eventually separated out the jewelry into it's own shop.  That shop struggled--so much jewelry online to compete with so, I changed the emphasis to a romantic theme with pillows and a few other fancy items.  It still struggled. I took one long vacation from it and then, finally ended up closing it last December 2011.  I guess I am a glutton for punishment or I'm eternally hopeful, because I have re-opened it! Take a look at a few of my new items:

Brocade zipper pouch in Hot Pink

Faux Fur Zebra coin purse
And there are several items brought back from the inactive file.  Pretty items for pretty ladies!

So . . . .to celebrate, I will be giving away this cute little necklace that exemplifies my love of Etsy and my hope in the future of this shop.  (Also will giveaway a pair of earrings of my choice to a second person- two winners!!)




Here's how to enter:

1)  Visit my shop, Pruitt Design, and take a look.  Come back here and comment telling me which item is your favorite.  Equals one entry

2)  Follow this blog.  Equals one entry. (If you are already a follower, please remind me in a separate comment to make sure you get your entry for being my follower.)

3)  Follow me (Like me) on Facebook.com/PruittCreations.  Equals one entry.

4)  Tweet about this giveaway using this URL in your tweet.  Equals one entry each tweet. Be sure to comment here about your tweet.

5)  Follow me on twitter.com/thepinkgrammy

Giveaway will close on May 9th, with winner to be announced here on May 10th by random selection.

Thanks for your entry!


REMEMBER--I am adding items everyday, so visit often.

I love the vintage hatbox printed bag! I know what you mean though...my shop hasn't been doing so well either...that's why I'm learning to sew for a bit of redirection. All you can do is change with the trends and keep trying!

Good luck with the shop! My vintage shop sells very intermittently, but it's still fun.
