Introducing …Tuckers Trinkets & Treasures

I’m really fond of charity! One of my plans for this site is to regularly feature blogs about people who use their arts and crafts to assist others in need. So with this in mind, I’d like to introduce you to Tuckers Trinkets & Treasures.

Lisa from Tuckers Trinkets & Treasures is now selling Breast Cancer Awareness jewelry. For every piece sold, Lisa will donate $1 to the Susan G Komen Foundation.

It’s fantastic that Lisa assists this worthwhile cause, as she makes the most beautiful jewelry - which you can see for yourself by visiting her shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/chocolateandcoffee

Also, Lisa has Surprise sales and hosts regular giveaways, so head on over and ‘like’ her Facebook Page so you don’t miss out on the fun!

Introducing ... Scarlet Threads

Let me introduce you to one of my favorite shops - Scarlet Threads.

Scarlet Threads is a compassionate boutique, specializing in gorgeous products designed and produced in rural Asia. The team at Scarlet Threads believes in providing safe and rewarding work to women in their local village, enabling them to provide for their own families.

In addition to paying fair wages and giving each woman an additional 5% of sale proceeds, Scarlet Threads also donates 5% of each sale to a number of development projects that help impoverished families living in their local community.

What gorgeous items can you find in the Scarlet Threads shop? They have girls summer dresses, reversible aprons, shoulder bags … and the great thing is that everything sold provides assistance for families in need. They say it so much better than me … “When you purchase one of our beautiful hand-crafted products, you become part of our story by providing a woman with safe and rewarding work”. Fantastic eh?!

To find out more, make your way over to the Scarlet Threads shop http://www.scarletthreads.org ... I know you'll love them as much as me!
