It’s only been 3 weeks since I first released the Application for LolliShops. Since then, I have received over 600 applications and we have close to 400 approved vendors!
I credit most of the buzz to my faithful friends and contacts who instantly added the buttons to their blogs. They didn’t stop there! You guys posted about LolliShops, you talked about it to fellow artists and you joined the LolliShop Guild where you continue to invite your friends and generate buzz!
I want to thank you!
You guys are an amazing group and I am daily inspired, grateful and impressed!
So I’m going to have my first LolliShops Blog Giveaway. All you have to do is post a comment. Since just posting a comment isn’t all that exciting, I will have you answer a question. The question is:
“What do you love more: Polka Dots or Stripes?”
You get a vintage card box full of handmade cards, vintage greeting cards, vintage buttons and trims, vintage rickrack, a Best Friend Award and some vintage wrapping paper samples!
(That’s a lot of vintage!)
In the future, LolliShops will be offering lots and lots of awards and prizes! Here are just a few ideas…
1. Rewards and Prizes for vendors with the most sales for one month
2. Rewards and Prizes for vendors with the most listings for one month
3. Rewards and Prizes for referring new buyers and vendors to LolliShops
4. Rewards and Prizes for contests: Most Creative use of Rick Rack…etc.
You get the idea!
Sometimes, LolliShops will be buying items from Featured Sellers and giving those away as prizes too! *excited*
I have some more posts coming this week so stay tuned!

Definition: Who knows what artists need BETTER than fellow artists? This category is for artistic inspiration! You’ll find gorgeous, well composed art kits and collage packs. This is the category for supplies such as special glue, ribbons, trims and fabrics!
I am soooo excited about this category. I LOVE to buy my artistic elements online because you just can’t find these things anywhere else! I couldn’t go to Estate Sales every weekend for a month and come away with as many goodies as I could get in one hour on LolliShops (when it’s ready).
These artists (because they are artists and suppliers to artists) really know how to pull together a bunch of odds & ends and package them in such a way that I just HAVE to have them!
Not to mention all the creative talent that goes into handmade supplies like Heidi’s Crepe Paper Ruffles! Do not settle for any other crepe paper ruffles–Heidi’s are the original!
My next giveaway is going to be an artist’s supply kit! Coming this Monday so come back Monday to leave a comment to win!!
I also have some exciting news coming next week about the LolliShops website!
