Merriweather Council turns 3 years old TODAY!! On May 29th 2010, my Etsy shop opened and the rest is history.

In order to celebrate this joyous occasion, I am gifting-away three goody bags full of handmade awesomeness. I want to share and support handmade for Merriweather’s birthday so I have purchased some wonderful things from some of my favorite sellers! (Of course, not ALL of my favorite sellers because for some reason I am not a billionaire yet.)  Each gift bag includes items from at least 6 (because who knows, I might add more) handmade sellers, from a variety of categories. The goody bags also include merriweather items, of course!

I’m SO jazzed about these, I have spent a lot of time hand picking each piece and I am actually feeling sort of dumb because I didn’t buy 4 of each things, just 3. In order to maintain the element of surprise, I’d like to keep it at that!


The gift away is open to friends and fans abroad as well. A winner will be chosen at random in one week!

This is a for profit blog and includes a few affiliate links. This means that if you purchase something through one of these links, I may receive a small commission. I only bother suggesting products or services that I have used and loved because if you buy something on my suggestion and hate it that would suck. So I only suggest things i’m 99% sure you’ll love as much as I do.
