Ten Dollar Tue$days .. in the works ...

(copied from my Etsy Forum post)

Hey everyone! I want to start a new weekly feature on my blog starting this coming Tuesday, but I need your help to do it :)

I want to feature 10 items from 10 different shops that are for $10 or less.

I will list and link the items on my blog to your item and then also tweet throughout the day about the Ten Dollar Tue$day blog and listings.

I would like 10 completely different kinds of items. With the economy in the dumps and the holidays approaching, I thought it would be cool to spread the word about affordable handcrafted items.

If you have items in your shop that are $10 or less (not including shipping) and you would like to be considered, all you have to do is become a follower of my blog and then post your $10 or less items here on this forum. You can post of up 3 items for me to choose from, and please be specific, I will not consider anyone who says anything related to "my whole shop is $10 and under", post the items you are proud of :) .. I'm here to help you!

Throughout the rest of the week and through the weekend I will compile a list. If I choose your item, I will notify you through convo. If your item is not chosen this week, I'm sure there will be room next week. My goal is have a new list each Tuesday at least until the end of the year, and each list to offer different shops and items to give everyone interested an opportunity to be featured.

I will also have a blog button created and will be available to whoever I do feature if you wanted to include it on your blog.

I'll keep everyone updated on how the list is forming throughout the week.

Can't wait to see what you all have!! :)


  1. Wow what a great idea. I do have several items that are under $10 but here are my three:

    Leopard Print 4 x 6 Notebook

    Set of 4 Orange Owl Cards

    Green Mini Notebook and Post it Holder

  2. I think I would like a crash marketing course from you:) This is such a good idea!

    Here's one of our smaller bottles:
    Belladonna's Smaller Glass Bottle - $9 (free shipping in the US)

  3. What a great idea. I have started following you and we feature Hand Knit discloths in our shop for $9.00.

    There are three different colorways.

    Carribean Getaway -

    Lemon Lime -

    Playtime -

    Thanks for considering our shop.


  4. What a great idea! I think there is still some perception out there that if it's handmade, it can't possibly be affordable.

    Here are my favorite $10 items from my shop:

    Bats Have Left the Belltower earrings:

    Violet Skies upcycled Victorian bracelet:

    The Sound of Her Wings angel wing and ankh earrings:


  5. This is such a fantastic idea! I am not a seller on Etsy (yet!) but I do run an Etsy blog. It is You may be able to find some suitable items on there
