Hello, everybody! Whew... what a week! Apologies for not being around as much, slow writing more here, and respond to emails, etc. It's been a very full few days getting things in place to close my shop.My Etsy shop CLOSING SALE is now on... Everything has been price reduced from 50-75%. ORDERS of $50 or more--FREE SHIPPING (complete order, shipping charges reissued via PayPal as soon as possible). See shop for details.
A new addition to the shop is a section with SUPPLIES--quality gemstones, pearls, beads and findings... Ideal for jewelry making, embellishing knitwear, mixed media art, and more! Reduced postage on supplies orders... and... FREE beads gift with SUPPLIES purchase! See my shop announcement for more details.
And for some extra incentive I am donating 10% of all sales, collecting to give to UNICEF and Charity: Water (where a $20 donation can give one person clean drinking water for 20 years!) I am very excited about this!
Many of you have been enthusiastic supporters of my creative work. Some of you have been cheerleaders almost from the beginning when I opened my shop--a few of you even from the early days of my blog. And there are those of you who have been so kind and even ordered from Pink Purl. So I am thankful for all the support in so many ways that has made it possible for me to keep going this long with the shop.
Time for some fun here at the blog... a GIVEAWAY! I wish I could shower you all with pretty jewelry... LOL! But I have created the special charm bracelet above for this shop-closing occasion--for one lucky winner. Take a chance on this for yourself, or maybe to win for someone else and give as a gift. The chain & toggle clasp are titanium (stain & corrosion-resistant--bright silver). It is 7.5 inches long (19cm) and should fit most. Charms are Czech glass faceted rounds and glass crystal pearls. A white organza bow/ribbon adds a Pink Purl touch! (Bow can be removed, if you want.)Step right up and add your name... Comments for this post/bracelet will be open for a week, and I'll announce the winner by next Friday, August 6th! Start some early Christmas shopping at Pink Purl. Prices will remain low as long as stock lasts. And the "doors" to Pink Purl at Etsy will close quietly in about a month.
The behind the scenes here with all of this has been hard at times... But I want to end the shop chapter on a high note. So the fun starts now!
Thank you for your good cheer... I'll be around to see you all soon... Happy Weekend!
P.S. In case you might have missed... at my photo blog, I've been updating with pictures from our garden/veggie patch--there's lots growing!
