Bargain Hunter Special Edition: Etsy Yart Sale

Happy Yart Sale to you all!

I'm doing a special edition of the Bargain Hunter today. There is a great sale starting tomorrow on Etsy! It's called the Yart Sale and many of our WIST members are participating. The sale starts tomorrow, June 10 and runs until Sunday, June 14.

What is a Yart Sale, you ask? Well, it is a combination of the words yard and art - art sellers having the internet version of a yard sale. This is a popular type of sale in the art world - lots of artists and art museums have Yart Sales to raise funds. On Etsy it's like a neighborhood garage sale - just about everyone does it differently. Some people give across the board discounts on their merchandise, some people set up a Yart Sale section in their shop with a few designated sale items, some people give free or discounted shipping. The possibilities are endless!

Many of our WIST members are participating, so without further ado, here is a list of some of our participating shops and their YART Sale specials:

  • Little Dandelion Studios: All gift tags, cards & wash cloths are buy one get one 50% off, everything else is 10% off & orders over $25 will receive a super secret surprise!

To get your shop in the blog posts, you have to reply to my posts on the WIST Yahoo board when I'm collecting sites for my weekly post. I start new topics each week on Wednesday - I usually post on Friday. Otherwise I have no way of knowing what your sale is. Please include the details of your sale and your shop name and etsy address.
