Have you guys heard that today is the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday?? Yesterday, millions of people took to their local malls and large chain stores to snatch up amazing Black Friday discounts and come Monday, those of us who have any money left (hahaha), will scour the internet for Cyber Monday deals. On the busiest shopping weekend of the year, an initiative is underway to support your local small businesses who do so much to support your local economy, so today we want to feature one very special Etsy dealer...
Meet Grateful Gypsy, our friend Ashley, who makes the cutest, most unique jewelry that will make you want to escape to the islands, regardless of the time of year. Bohemian and beach inspired pieces are her specialty and her prices are amazing! Seen a piece of jewelry somewhere that has left you with a craving?? Just provide Ashley with an inspiration pic and she can whip up a custom piece designed specifically with your tastes in mind. Take a look at some of the jewelry available in her Etsy shop now:
|Thank My Lucky Stars Locket = $20.00|
|Ahoy Sailor Necklace = $20.00|
|Peacock Feather Earrings = $10.00|
|Five Strand Dusty Rose and Smoke Rhodonite Necklace = $34.00|
When we spotted Ashley wearing this long beaded number, we immediately knew that we wanted one and she definitely delivered a piece that we will wear over and over again...

Ashley has even offered to do a giveaway for our blog readers!! All you have to do to enter is register with an account on Etsy (if you haven't already) and click the "Favorite" button (right under the Grateful Gyspy banner at the top of the page) between now and Saturday, December 10th.

So we encourage you to "shop small" not just today, but every day, and support your local small businesses, including online marketplaces such as Etsy. Happy shopping!!
