I'm a Dusty Attic Retailer! (& GIVEAWAY)

I can hardly believe it myself! With the encouragement and support of Mandy Harrell (on the DA design team and a retailer herself) and my really wonderful husband, I am thrilled to announce that I am officially a Dusty Attic chipboard retailer. Thanks again Mandy!




I will start with carrying Dusty Attic products but my plan is to branch out and retail other foreign scrappy products (not manufactured in Canada or the USA). I will be selling through my Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto) for a little while to gain a customer base and to allow me the proper time to research and develop a good website. I'm soooo excited that Jen Hedger at DA took a chance on me and that she sees the potential in my niche market business - thanks Jen!


As an appreciation to help me spread the word, I am drawing for this awesome DA blog candy (pictured above) from my stash.


What you need to do:


1. FOLLOW my blog (if you don't already). This is how you will find out about when product arrives and if you win the prize.

2.
WRITE a post about me being a new DA retailer and my blog candy - please include both the prize image above and my Etsy address - http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto - on your blog (or Facebook page if you don't have a blog).

3. Leave me a message at the bottom of this post, with the
LINK to your post, and tell me what DA piece is at the very top of your "wish list" (so that I know what you want me to carry).

The winner will be randomly drawn on April 1st. Since I will be shipping anywhere, this giveaway is also open to all countries.


As a fun BONUS... if my blog following more than doubles, reaching over 600 followers by the time my order arrives, I will draw for a second DA pack (when I announce that the product has arrived and is available for purchase of course!).


Thanks again for all your support in getting the word out there for your patience with the delayed stock production during these difficult times for the Dusty Attic "crew". Just a note, for future shipments I will be taking custom pre-orders with a minimum of 15 pieces.


Vicky


P.S. If you ever come across a great scrappy product that you'd like me to consider carrying just give me a shout through an Etsy conversation.

I've included your good news in my Friday Finds post today. It is about mid-post when you go looking for it.

http://mommasaid-mommasaid.blogspot.com/2011/02/friday-finds-6-really-ive-been-doing.html

I like the more masculine pieces -- the chains, the spider web (because my son loves Spider Man), the borders are really fun, too! I look forward to being able to shop from you, soon!

Dear Vicky,

huge congrats to your success!! I've posted it on my brand new blog to share with my friends in Hungary! :)

http://annscrap.blogspot.com/2011/02/kezdetnek-egy-blog-candy.html

I love basically everything, mostly the items found in the decorative elements section...:) though gates of any kind are my all-time favourites. :)

Thank you once more!

Veronica said...

Huge congrats on your Etsy shop and on being a new DA retailer, Vicky! I just love DA! Hard to choose a piece that I like best as I love most of DA's products - butterflies, decorative elements and borders, nature, scrolls and flourishes, foliage, gates, hinges .....

Anyway, here's my blog post:

Now as for the favourite piece, they are all just so amazing. I think maybe my favourite would have to be either some of the frames or some of the scrolls.

Hi vicky, so glad I found you, I have been looking for dusty attic products for so long and can't find them anywhere, can you notify me when you get more in?
Please visit my blog:
http://www.exclusivelyoursdesigns.blogspot.com
Thanks so much
Francine

francine said...

I forgot, LOL I will facebook this and also leave a comment on my blog. If you can get the chairs, tables and bench and the vanity mirror that would be great! Good Luck!

penny meyer said...

I was given your name as a seller of DA items when I posted on their facebook page about how hard it is to find DA here in the US. I've ordered from you on ETSY and am very excited to receive my order. I know the contest is over, but the small, med, and large fences are very versatile and all of the street lights are perfect on any page or project, as are the dress forms. Sorry, I can't choose just one. Will continue to watch your ETSY site for new items and best of luck.
