The Vegan Craft Samples holiday bag is here! The bags have just been unveiled, and they're going fast, so you probably want to order yours today! What's in the bag? Any number of vegan samples from crafters and artisans all over the world. Of course many Vegan Etsy team members contribute to the bags, as well as a large number of other vendors. The only way to really know what it's all about is to get one of your very own and discover it for yourself!
Bags are available in small ($15), regular ($25), and large ($25) sizes. You can also purchase a "subscription" for 2011 and receive every bag that comes out throughout year.
Importantly - and as always - 100% of profits from the sale of the bags will go directly to support animals in need. Funds from this round of holiday bags are going to Joey's Feline Friends!
To find out more, stop by the Vegan Craft Samples website or facebook page!

I have said it before and I will say it again, I love anything heart shaped or bicycle themed...Maple Ash and Oak sent in fabric heart shaped pins!!! These are so adorable, I cant wait to open my box, peek inside my bag and hopefully have one for myself! (yes, I am a dork, I package all of the bags then just randomly grab one for myself, I like suprises!!)
I love the selection of organic shirts, all so different and beautiful!

This shop is full of cute animal themed items that I absolutely love!
This star pendant is so cute and goes right along with my new fascination with the ocean, so many hidden wonders in those waters!
I saw so many cool little side stepping crabs when I was snorkeling this summer...I love snorkeling, you can see all these amazing new creatures without even interrupting their lives!

Other than the fact that I think the shop name is totally creative and adorable...the shop lives up to the same...my personal favorite item:
These gloves are absolutely adorable, I could see them being perfect for roller derby practice...since where we practice their idea of heat is 40 degrees! And besides, these gloves are cute, to boot!!

Happy Earth Day 2010, now I am a firm believer that doing things everyday for the earth is much better than just one day. But what better way to do a little something extra than on Earth Day!
To celebrate Earth Day 2010, Vegan Craft Samples latest bag was released this month on World Rat Day, 100% profits from this round of bags will go to Carolina Pet Rescue!
The bags sell out very quickly, so make sure you get yours asap, they are available in our Etsy Shop and on our Website!

So excited to receive more samples from Mrs. Tattooed Geek, last time she sent in vegan incense sticks!! This time she sent in candles! She even included a few items for me, and I absolutely love them. 3 large candles, one is 4 leaf clover scented, sun kissed sugar, and tigers eye.
My favorite scent is the sun kissed sugar, I cant stop walking by it and smelling it! The candles are also dyed and designed all pretty, the tigers eye is tiger designed wax, looks so cool.
We just recently ran out of vegan candles, so this came at a perfect time!
Another item she included especially for me is a little pocket mirror with a skull blowing a bubble on it, so cute. It is the perfect little gift for a fellow roller derby teammate, she is always chewing bubble gum.....even when she is roller skating and has her mouth guard in!

In honor of World Rat Day, bags go on sale April 4th 2010!!
