We are thrilled to once again be featuring small businesses in what has become our annual Twelve Days of Giveaways! My passion is being able to do what I love (teaching and writing while staying home with my kids) via my own small business (this blog)! To celebrate you, our readers who keep us going by reading and interacting via our social media we are presenting 12 Days of Giveaways on Still Playing School's Facebook page!
From Friday, November 28 through Tuesday, December 9th we will feature a different small business each day and host a giveaway for their products and services! This means amazing prizes for you and exposure and advertising for them.
All year long I love to do our shopping, including purchasing gifts, via small family run businesses. In the list of our participating 12 Days of Giveaways small businesses below, these ladies share why they love what they do as well as what goods and services they offer. Consider everyone on your holiday shopping list including teachers, parents, grandparents, children, and even yourself as you visit their shops to round out your holiday shopping in the comfort of your own home! Several of the businesses below are offering sales exclusively for Still Playing School readers so when you LIKE them on Facebook please leave them a note telling them that we sent you!
The Flash Giveaways on our Facebook page will be random and not in the order below! Make sure you like and Get Notifications from our page so you don't miss a single chance to win over the next twelve days! I'm also keeping exactly what they are offering as a prize wrapped up as a secret for now!
You can start your dōTERRA journey with Eve in several different ways! You can buy retail through her website, you can attend free classes offered through Facebook, or you can enroll as a wholesale member with a starter kit to receive 25% off all of your purchases for the next year. In addition, Eve is offering a special to all Still Playing School readers who enroll before the 12 Days of Giveaways are over. All who enroll with a wholesale membership will receive a complimentary copy of the new 6th Edition of the Modern Essentials book which retails for over $25. It is the text book for essential oils!
Five Stone Kids is our favorite local hangout where the kids can play indoors when we have cabin fever during our long, cold winters! Our kids have two December birthdays so we book their birthday parties there, too. The best part about Five Stone Kids is that the front of the store is a book and toy store where we frequently pick up gifts for our own kids and their friends. On Small Business Saturday, Five Stone Kids is offering 20% off almost all retail items in the store! (Some exclusions apply.) Lots of families are asking for gifts of time for their children this year! If you need a great idea for a child on your shopping list, purchase monthly passes or gift certificates for a day to create memories and support a local small business this holiday season.
Destiny sells Jamberry nail wraps which E and I both love! They are non-toxic and last up to 2 weeks on your fingers and 6 weeks on your toes. With a little heat they can be applied to real or artificial nails. There are over 300 styles but the smaller Junior Collection is the perfect size for our preschooler so they are at the top of her list this year! Grab these for stocking stuffers, put them in a Christmas card for your niece or BFF, and host a party in 2015 to earn free wraps while your friends shop!
Tye Dye Bills was created by Amanda Johnson. Amanda hand makes most of the tie dyes, tapestries and bed sheet sets (nature inspired are her favorite) and the portrait drawings, as well as other grateful gear. Her team consists of her husband who occasionally makes tie dyes (very groovy style), rinses her bins and is sole owner of their shop name (a name given to him during his on the road days), and her children who are the reason she creates and sells on Etsy. Amanda says, "We love sharing our art, love and soul with others. Each item contains a moment of our lives, a piece of our hearts, part of our souls. When you purchase our creations, you are buying moments of frustration and days, weeks, years of pure joy. You are not just buying things, but rather more time for us to make things we are passionate about."
Tye Dye Bills will also be running a Black Friday sale from 11/28 - 12/1 30% off your order with coupon code BLACKFRIDAY
I'd like to extend a big thank you to our twelve small businesses for participating! As you do your holiday shopping, please consider these talented ladies' who love what they do to keep small businesses thriving and strong.
