Handmade Black Friday

In case you haven’t attended this fun event on Craftaholics Anonymous in the past, here is how it works…

How it Works

On Thanksgiving Day, {November 22, 2012} the Handmade Black Friday PREVIEW post will be up with a preview of the shops participating and links to their shops. That way you can take a peek at what they sell and prepare a shopping list!

Then on Black Friday {November 23, 2012} at exactly 12:01am Eastern Time, the Handmade Black Friday DEALS post will go live. In the post, you will find all the deal information, product pictures, links, and discount codes that you’ll need for the deals. At exactly 11:59PM on November 23, 2012, the DEALS post will go down and all the deals will no longer be available.

Handmade Shopping Spree

I am personally sponsoring a $50 shopping spree giveaway to be spent at any of the participating shops! {the $50 can be split up between multiple shops} This giveaway will end at 11:59PM Easter Time on November 23, 2012 {when the deals post is taken down}.

So MARK your calendar right now to stop by Craftaholics Anonymous on Handmade Black Friday! This event is going to be packed with AMAZING savings on lots of Handmade goodies! Plus you can enter for a chance to win a Handmade Shopping Spree!! 

I am so excited about this event! This event highlights handmade shops {fellow crafters!}, score on great deals, and gives you an opportunity to support Handmade holiday shopping! I personally will be shopping and enjoying the savings and I hope you will too!

If you own a handmade shop or business and would like to be a part of this HUGE event, please fill out the form below. Applications will be accepted through 10/31/12.

Applications have now closed. I'm so sorry!!

Let’s support our fellow crafters this holiday season. If you love handmade, please help me spread the word about this great event! 

happy crafting,

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
