Oh, Sweet Joy's Handmade Holidays Gift Guide 2013 ((call for applicants))

It's that time of year again, y'all! One of my greatest joys in running this blog is featuring handmade shops that work so hard to create amazing goods. Along those same lines, it's great for me to share these shops with people/readers not necessarily within this "handmade/blogging bubble" to find wonderfully unique gifts for their loved ones. The THIRD ANNUAL Oh, Sweet Joy Handmade Holidays Gift Guide is the perfection solution to help me do both!

Handmade shops, small businesses, online Boutiques and the like - you WON'T want to miss your chance to be a part of the THIRD annual Handmade Holidays Gift Guide!

Here's how it works:
This year it will be FIVE straight days (think of it as a baller handmade PARTY!) of featured shops in the following categories:
For the Littles (baby + children)
Jewelry (largest category!)
Paper (stationery, printables & frameable prints)
Accessorize (hats, scarves, headbands, handbags, knitted/crocheted items)
Wear (exclusive to online boutiques)

After that? We will have a GIANT giveaway. Weeee!!

The fee for each participating shop will be SEE THIS YEAR's POST FOR THIS YEAR'S RATE (most shops will only have to sell a couple products to make that back!) and will come with more than just a spot in the gift guide (details upon acceptance, but think social media mentions and more!). Shops will also be asked to supply a discount code for the "Handmade Holiday" Gift Guide readers to encourage sales. Participation in the finale giveaway is recommended, but not mandatory.

This is SUCH a great way to drive extra traffic to your shop during peak shopping months. You will be exposing your shop to not only my faithful readers, but also to every other participating shops' "fans" as they tell their customers about "Handmade Holidays!"

Want to be included in the fun? 
Email me  (ohsweetjoyATgmailDOTcom) to "enter" your shop or boutique.
You will be emailed upon acceptance.

((I wish I could accept everyone, there's just not time for that. womp womp))


There are limited spots available in each category, so please email me pronto to apply. Not everyone will be chosen, unfortunately, but my goal is to help promote as many shops as possible. I'm more than excited to highlight and feature so many talented shops...and help you get your Christmas shopping done early!

love.

NOTE: this is not a giveaway, but simply a gift guide in the form of a highlight and feature. The giveaway is optional for participants.
