THIS PROMO EVENT IS NOW CLOSED-Thanks everyone!
I have a sweet proposition for you! Some of you might be very interested in this. As many of you know, I’ll be going to Silver Bella this November to promote LolliShops! (psst…Mary Englebreit will be there!!)
I have been making inventory to have something to sell besides just promoting LolliShops and I had this great idea! I could bring some press kits from LolliShops vendors!!
That way, I’m representing Sadie Lou Who, LolliShops and YOU!
I’m going to limit this opportunity to just 50 vendors. So if you think you might be interested, here are the details:
Cost for shipping and handling: $10.00 (I have to mail all my booth decorations and inventory to the hotel in Omaha, Nebraska before the event)
Press Kit Guidelines/ Ideas
Promotional materials to represent your business–
* Business Cards
* A couple samples–this could be anything, ATC, Mini Collage, trial size, supply pack
* Photos of your work
* Mini Notebook
* Vintage Goodies
All of this should be packaged in cello baggies: Limit= 10 baggies per vendor
I will give these Press Kits away with purchases or to ladies who sign up with LolliShops. Your name will go out to 10 lucky people at Silver Bella without you even attending!
If you don’t have any promotional materials, one of our LolliShops vendors, Kitty Cross Bones makes promotional items at a very reasonable price and she has made some Press Kit listings on her website:
To secure your place as one of the 50 vendors, simply email me at lollishops@gmail
Then as soon as payment comes through, I’ll reserve your place. I’ll provide you with my PayPal email when you email me.
I think this is a great opportunity!

I was away on a little, family vacation but I’m back now and I’m ready to give you another update!
There has been quite a few emails from artists asking when LolliShops will be ready. The answer is: I really don’t know the date. I can say that the company that is building LolliShops is starting from scratch–from the ground up!
Every single detail passes through his hands to mine and we talk about everything. I want to make sure that when you’re ready to move into LolliShops, everything will be comfortable and pleasing.
There will also be a phase where LolliShops will be tested in it’s Beta Format. For those of you that don’t speak “computer” that means LolliShops will be open for an invited group of artists and consumers to test how user-friendly it is; to work out the bugs and to provide feedback.
I can also tell you that I will be promoting LolliShops at Silver Bella
in November. The plan is to have opened LolliShops up to the public before then to have something to promote and to provide a form of advertising for all the sellers. Then of course, Christmas is right around the corner from that and I am hoping to have a VERY special LolliShops style Christmas!!
I have some giveaways and contests planned as well as some rewards programs! But for now, just continue to check on this blog as I will be blogging at least once a week. If you want to contact me directly, just email me at email@example.com
I’ll leave with a song that inspires me!
I’ve thrown away my toys
Even my drum and train.
I wanna make some noise
With real live aeroplanes.
Some day I’m going to fly.
I’ll be a pilot too.
And when I do, how would you
Like to be my crew…
On the good ship lollipop.
Its a sweet trip to a candy shop
Where bon-bons play
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay.
Lemonade stands everywhere.
Crackerjack bands fill the air.
And there you are
Happy landing on a chocolate bar.
See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll
With the big bad devils food cake.
If you eat too much ooh ooh
You’ll awake with a tummy ache.
On the good ship lollipop
Its a night trip into bed you hop
And dream away
On the good ship lollipop.
“The Good Ship Lollipop”
