Giveaway! £100 Etsy gift card

1327-GiftCard-BlogBanner_seller-FA

It’s nearly Christmas, which means you should probably start trawling Etsy for all those handmade presents you’re going to buy (supporting indy designer-makers, especially at this time of year, is A Very Good Thing).

To help make it a little easier (and to celebrate the launch of Etsy gift cards), Etsy have given me a £100 vouchers to be given away on Make And Do With Perri. Hurrah!

So, this week just leave a comment below and I’ll randomly choose someone to give the gift card to. Why not tell me what you’d buy?

To celebrate the giveaway I’ve started this Pinterest board where I’m collecting all this prints on Etsy I’d buy if I had a spare £100.

Etsy cats that will kill their owners.

AMAZING.

You wanna buy any of this for your cat? YOU CAN! If someone gives you one of the new Etsy vouchers that they launched last month.)

Etsy: you can no longer buy drugs there.

BOO? (via Jezebel).

And while we’re talking about Etsy, don’t you wish you had got an invite to their annual craft party on Brooklyn Bridge?
