100th Etsy Sale Giveaway Party!

I've been a busy bee making and promoting Bison Booties the last few weeks and it is really paying off. We hit our 100th Etsy sale last week!

In celebration of this fun milestone, I am hosting a giveaway party on Facebook with my favorite Etsy finds. Most are children's items, but there are is also a great shaving set with handmade soap (for men) and a little something for the ladies too. I am so excited about all the great sponsor items - I was shocked at the great response from these established sellers. I wish I could win all the prizes ... custom kid cape, design your own crown, handcrafted overalls, sleepy dolly ...

Bison Bootie update

My last blog post was ohhh, about 2.5 months ago. I wrote about the opening of my little Bison Girl (Bison Bootie) store on Etsy.

Since that time, Bison Booties  ...

... are available in many new colors

... were showcased on the Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine Blog

... have a Facebook page!
if you are on Facebook, I'd be thrilled if you'd head over and "like" my bootie page :)

And to top that off, I have sold over 40 pairs of booties! That means there are over 40 babies out there with warm toes thanks to my handiwork.

One more thing.

Bison Booties are now available for wholesale! I'm working with one store right now, but I'd be delighted to work with more retailers. So, if you know of a shop that would be a good fit for my booties, please let me know.


The packaging is coming together nicely after many Google searches for the perfect boxes. I think I found them. I still need to polish up the logo and I'm waiting on some little size stickers to arrive, but here is the first draft of Bison Bootie retail packaging.


I can only wonder what the next 2.5 months will bring!
