DAY TWENTYFOUR. As someone who’s been shopping online a lot, I know a great online shop when I find one. In Multiply alone, I can vouch for Sheila’s In the Fishbowl, and Joni’s Foot & Knots, and again, not just because they’re my friends! There’s also Tot Couture, Make Up Kit, and The Only Ukay Queen.
And no, don’t let me start on Etsy, I’d go crazy listing down online shops I’ve come across that made it to my bookmarks. Etsy and Bigcartel (among others) are popular venues to buy and sell pretty stuff among Americans, Canadians, and Europeans. Here in the Philippines however, Multiply is where most independent sellers find their market.
Today, my featured online shop is Aurus‘ Purple Beet, who is currently having a site-wide sale (up to 50% off) to celebrate the shop’s first year anniversary. Each item is unique and handcrafted by Aurus herself. She’s got the cutest charms and beads — rare finds indeed!
Here are some of her products that caught my fancy. (More after the jump!)
By the way, I love Multiply shops that have, not only awesome products, but neat and user-friendly design/layout too. I don’t care if you’re selling unique and branded products, if your online shop is overflowing with blinkies and background music (oh please!), I tell you, you’re losing a lot of sales! And don’t waste your time adding me as your contact. I would have rejected you even before I start browsing your items.
But okaaaayyyy. That’s for a separate blog post altogether. Heh. Composure.
What I’m just trying to say is, Aurus is not only selling pretty items, her classy taste in design and colors is also evident in the overall look and feel of her online shop — which also adds credibility points to her as an artist selling her craft. You get what I’m saying? :)
Here’s more of Aurus’ stuff that I like.
+ I have a thing for pandas. (Teddy bears are soooo 1990s.)
+ Fishies! And Starfishies!! :)
+ “Made for an Angel,” ahhh. I think my friend Ivy‘s going to love this one. Angels are her thing. Err, at least this one particular Angel. Ahem.
+ And this.
+ Now this one looks familiar. Oh, yeah. I have one of these! :) It’s one of my favorite every-where-accessory, goes well with rugged, casual, or semi-formal attires. :)
+ Lastly, here’s a pretty blue beadwork. I think I’m going to order this. :)
So yeah. Hoard while they’re on sale! Go go go!
*Apparently, some of these items I posted here may not be available anymore. But she has more pretty stuff in her store that are still available.
OAN, my giveaway challenge is still on! Come join the fun! :D
