{sampler village} review + giveaway

This is such an innovative idea! Sampler Village puts together fun boxes full of "samples" from all sorts of vendors! Traci, from Sampler Village, sent me one of their large boxes. Here's how it arrived - in a cute green box with some raffia & a snowflake! :)


and, look what I found inside!

It was so much fun to to keep pulling things out of the box! Lots of fun things! I plan on using everything for stocking-stuffers...perfect!

And - if you own a shop, this is a GREAT way to promote your shop! You can sign-up to be a "Sampler Village Resident."

Also - check out the Sampler Village blog for info. on all the resident shops!

... and, you have a chance to win a $10 off a regular-sized Sampler box!

Mandatory: Visit Sampler Village (here or here) & comment on what interests you most about their shop!

  74. I like that you get to get a little sample from each shop without having to go to various shops & pay shipping for each. It's all in one sampler box!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like that you can get the normal-sized box or the mega-sized box, depending on how many samples you want and how much you want to spend.

  76. What a great way to check out new artists. Seems very popular too! Everything is "sold out".
