SoHo Couture is hosting it's first ever blog contest through tonight where 2 lucky winners will win 2 cards of their choice! Contest ends at 11:59pm CST, 3/18/08.

Here is how to play:

1. A "Secret Squirrel" icon like the one pictured above will be posted in 3 of my items on my Etsy page, SoHo Couture Cards & Gifts.

2. You must convo me on Etsy as to which items the squirrels were placed under (do NOT leave it in the comments of the blog for everyone to see, please.)

3. In the convo - you also must include which 2 cards from my Avenue Six-Twelve line you'd like to receive if you are the contest winner.

4. All submissions will be placed in a random drawing for the winners which will be announced 3/19/08.

Happy Hunting!

Featured Seller of the Week - Brownies Vintage

Vintage & Indie Design Clothing Boutique

Shop owners, Kendra & Greg, have been Etsy members for a little over a year and also have their own storefront in their hometown of Berkeley, CA. All of their printed shirts are of original design, funky, and affordable. I did a short Q&A with Kendra - check it out!

How did you originally find out about Etsy?

I heard about etsy from some friends. They told me about the site and I thought it too good to be true. When I checked it out I was amazed and excited that someone actually created such a wonderful place online for people to sell their handmade goods.

What makes you successful as an online seller?

I have fun advertising. I try not to think of it as work and my relaxed attitude comes across to my customers. I think being genuine is important and I always try to stay true to myself when working on my business.

What's your hottest selling item?

My hottest selling item is the Woman’s "I love Power Ballads" T-shirt

What makes your store unique?

The fact that we specialize in Deadstock Vintage is pretty unique. Greg and I have mastered the art of hunting down vintage in PERFECT condition. Unlike most vintage stores we choose to focus on everyday wearable items like jeans, t-shirts, & shoes.

Current Promotions/Sales:

Right now we have free shipping on all of our Indie Design screen printed T's. Our "Undies" T-shirt is also on sale for only $14 AND you still get the free shipping!!!
