Holiday Indie Craft Sample Bags, Promote Your Craft Worldwide, Help Animals

It is time to start thinking about advertising your shop for the holidays, and what a better way to do it than "It's All In The Bag"

What is all in the bag, you might ask. Well we take craft samples from crafters around the world, put them in handmade market totes, and sell them online, worldwide! When you send in your crafts, they are seen by people from the United States to Israel and in between. What is different about these sample bags, other than the reusable market totes that they come in? 100% of profits from each bag go to an animal sanctuary which is voted for, right here in this very blog!

When you send in samples to be in our bags, your ad will appear on our blog and website, along with a photo of your samples on our website- for the entire process of that bag from the time people start signing up until the last bag is sold!

How well do the bags sell? We sold over half of our first round of bags in the first few hours, and it didnt take very long for the bags to sell out completely!

The holiday is special, first because its the holiday bag so people will be eagerly checking out all of the shops that send in samples, looking for holiday gifts. Secondly, we have an anonymous donor willing to match whatever we raise for the chosen holiday animal sanctuary!!! Which is very exciting and makes everything even more fun! We advertise on various websites, and I will be sending a couple of sample bags to different magazines, for reviews and possible press in print!
Read here what Starrlight Jewelry had to say about our bags!:

some of the benefits of submitting to these bags are:

1) reaching a target market you never though possible. While Vegans are Veggies are still a minority in this our numbers are growing.

2) Reviews on your product. For each round of sample bags there is a forum listing of each seller/ crafter who contributes to the bags. Everyone who purchases bags is welcome to leave a comment or review of the items they received from that seller.

3) Shop and product feature on the website blog - which has at the moment, 133 followers. The bags are also advertised by a large number of other sellers that contribute to the bags - myself included.

and more! My analytics account has shown a good deal of traffic to my shop from donating to the past (April) bags.
This is a wonderful advertisement opportunity for compassionate crafters.
