SALE to benefit HOST

SALE - starting today - Nov 3 through Dec 24 2008 - 25% of my sales will be donated to HOST, the Etsy Helping Others Street Team.

This offer includes BOTH of my shops: TheGypsyJewels and AllWiredUpTOO ... and may contain a few surprises!

HOST was born after a simple question asked in the Etsy forums: "Is anyone in need this Holiday Season?"

Etsians responded and came together to help one another out. Some members sewed; sent small gifts; or made purchases. It was an incredible representation of Etsians at their best and most caring, and extremely moving to experience.

The ensuing Street Team, HOST, is a wonderful group of Etsy sellers and buyers, who continue to support and assist fellow Etsians in need by whatever means available - whether this be with small financial assistance; friendship and emotional support; promoting sellers and their stores where possible; even offering advice on resources available in the various states across America!

My SALE is my way of saying "thank you HOST for doing what you do" and hopefully helping to raise funds for the team to use for helping others during the festive season that is already upon us!
