{sampler village} review + giveaway


Sampler Village offers such a fun concept & product! When you order a sampler box - you receive a box (*cutely wrapped, I might add*) that is full of samples & full-sized products from several etsy/handmade shops!

and, I mean full - the box I received was filled to the top!

so much fun stuff! ...this box had a "Pamper Me/Pamper My Pet" theme :) {I'm going to have to schedule a "Pamper Nora (my dog) Day" :)

**

At work (I teach kindergarten), we do "Secret Pals" within the staff where we all have chosen a "secret pal" for the year - and we secretly give 'our pal' little gifts & notes throughout the year... so.... I've saved some of the items from my Sampler Box for secret pal gifts!

**

And! If you have an etsy shop or handmade shop - you can become a Villager! Contribute samples for sampler boxes & get your name out there :)


You have a chance to win the same sampler box I received! (TONS of great stuff in it!)
