Before this year when I thought of Black Friday and Cyber Monday I automatically thought of waking up ridiculously early to go stand in line not only to enter stores but to pay for products. This year, I have a new perspective. Although I honestly do plan on doing some much needed clothes shopping shopping and going through some part of my list of Christmas present list at common retailers, I also plan on doing small business shopping through Etsy.com, where the majority of sellers including myself will have great deals and discounts on handmade artisan goods including jewelry, knitwear, vintage items, and photography. And I love the idea of supporting small businesses like myself.
This is my first year going through Black Friday and Cyber Monday on Etsy and I'm offering a variety of deals and promo codes throughout my photography shop, ZoiShop, all weekend long. For print purchases, I'm offering 40 percent off with the coupon code: FPOE11. Beside the 40 percent off prints, I will also be offering 10 percent off paper goods, stocking stuffers, and tree ornaments, with the promo code: 10PERCENT. Plus, I'll be offering free domestic and international shipping for orders over $100 USD, with code: SHIPPING100.
Do you plan on shopping from small businesses this year?
If you're not, I truly encourage you to support small businesses on Etsy. You might be surprised at the amazing handmade creations you'll find outside of common retailers.
