Costume Sale Extended

Just a quick note to let you all know that I’ll be leaving the Free Shipping Code live for a few more days (until next Monday). I know it seems early but July 5th is my cue to get my tush in gear because things become a crazy costume making wonderland in my home over the next few months.

[repost]

So those of you who know me in the real world or who have been around my blog and shop for a while knows that things get kinda crazy over here leading up to Halloween. Every year I get a rush before Halloween and I have to cut off taking orders early in October. My big sellers are my baby Pebbles and Bam Bam costumes  It always makes me bummed to have to turn so many people away so this year I decided to have an early bird sale before the Halloween orders start coming in (usually the beginning of August) so hopefully I get a jump on things.

So, I’m offering free shipping during the month of June through July 11th to anyone who buys costumes from my etsy store and enters this code COSTUMEFS into the coupon code section. The free shipping will apply to your entire order and I’m more than happy for you to buy non-costume items as well but please make sure your order contains at lease one costume. Feel free to let your friends know about the code too.

 I hardly ever have sales besides my annual Black Friday sale so if you’ve been waiting for one here’s your chance. If you’re looking for something and don’t see it in the shop just message me and I can probably relist it.

Also if you are interested in buying any of my goodies now is a great time to order. Things have been unusually slow and I’m ahead of schedule.

Also I’ll be adding a bunch of red, white and blue made to order and ready to ship items to the shop all weekend long so be sure to check back.

Shop Update: New Baby Sets



I’ve been lucky enough to do a bunch of custom and wholesale lately orders for which I’ve been able to make a bunch of new sets. Not only have I had the fun of coming up with over twenty new designs but I finally have been forced to make some goodies for the boys.

I’ll be adding all these sets and some new bottoms to the shop all next week. I hope you like them and if you have suggestions for other designs I always like ideas. But here’s a sneak peak for now.

Rae Gun On TV


 (gotta love where Youtube freezes shots)
So yesterday early afternoon I checked my email to find an email from Arikka Von a local news anchor asking if she could interview me for a Cyber Monday story. After calling her she was on her way in umm an hour. My house was a mess I hadn’t showered yet and I had shoveled the whole driveway earlier, ummm yeah. I think it went well and they did a really nice job of focusing on my store name and all that good stuff. I didn’t expect any sales or business from it based my other tv experience (and I was right) but I just loved that she wanted to feature small businesses and Etsy in the shopping fuss too.  In case you missed it or aren’t in the state here it is (umm from me filming the tv).

Fans and Followers Exclusive code

In addition to the other codes I’ve already given out for today I want to give another code just for my Blog and Facebook followers.

After Thanksgiving Sale

 The Rae Gun shop-wide sale starts tomorrow. If any of you want to email or convo me an “order list” I’m happy to set up reserved listings (I just won’t be reserving any ready to ship items). Then if you want you can check out on which ever day works best for you time-wise and deal-wise. Just make sure to enter the appropriate codes and I’ll refund you back. Otherwise I’ll be doing my best to relist things that sell but I’ll be doing my own family stuff and shopping so please be patient and/or send me a note asking for a reserved listing if you don’t see what you want.

And I wish you a super happy and delicious Thanksgiving!

Treasury Love: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

I’m here waiting for a HUGE blizzard to hit us. The news keeps on saying things like “if you must drive have an emergency survival kit in your car” and “the power company expects outages” and “if possible leave work early”. Ummm yeah, I’m a little nervous, hopefully they’re being overly dramatic but the coverage is way more intense than I’ve experienced.

That being said I welcome this cozy holiday treasury by feltedkitten. To see it up close and to get links to all of the goodies on the list click here to see it up close and to get links to all of the goodies on the list. I want that headband bad.

I will be adding new corduroy pants and sets which I’m SUPER excited about before then and I’ve got a load of stuff that I’ll be adding to my Ready to Ship Section so that will be full. It is the perfect time to stock up on baby show gifts.

This is a great time to order my Pirate outfits, Princess dresses, Fancy Nancy dresses or any of my costumes and dress up outfits at a discounted cost with free shipping for Holiday gifts. My nieces practically live in their princess dresses and since I make the back stretchy they last a long time
