I have a confession to make. I used to be one of those people. You know what I am talking about, one of the people who would get up at 3am just to get a $2 discount on wool socks. My sister and I would make our plan of attack days in advance, hit the coffee shop, and wait in line for hours. It was madness, every time. I think that I only once really did get a great deal on something. the rest of the time it was mostly not worth it. I usually came home with some good stories though!
We have finally given up this tradition and adopted a new tradition of sleeping in after Turkey Day. Coincidentally, this change in tradition seems to correspond with the beginnings of Cyber Monday. For those of you who don’t know, Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving where online shops provide savings on their items. There is still occasionally some madness, but it is all done while wearing your panda slippers.
This will be the first year that I am participating in Cyber Monday on the seller’s end of things! I have teamed up with PDX Etsy, and over 80 Portland, Oregon area artisans will be participating. You can preview the list of participants on Little Daisy Chain’s Blog here: http://littledaisychains.blogspot.com/2011/11/pdxetsy-cyber-monday-sale-november-28th.html. You can also search for items tagged with PDXEtsy to find participants.
I will be providing 20% off of everything in my Etsy shop this Cyber Monday, November 28, 2011. Just use the coupon code PDXETSY2011. Items will include the ever popular Chalkboard Flask (a great gift for guys or teachers), cards, and an assortment of gift boxes and tags for your wrapping needs!
