Etsy's Christmas in July

I've been adding a few items to my Etsy shop lately to get it ready for Christmas in July. What's Christmas in July? You've probably seen that used with some of your local stores. On Etsy it's a time for sales, special offers, buying items for Christmas and buying Christmas gifts. I've read that the dates are July 11-21 this year. Some shops will have sales and some will have special offers on shipping or will include an extra little something when they mail the package to you. It varies from shop to shop so I would start watching for it at the beginning of July. It's always lots of fun!

This crocheted camouflage granny square Christmas stocking is an item I've completed recently.
There is a similar one in the works that will get posted very soon so watch for it. My family has used this pattern of crocheted Christmas stockings for over 35 years so I can attest to the fact they last and last.
I also have a woodworking pattern to make some gorgeous reindeer and a pattern to make a family Christmas tree, take a look at it  quilters. There's still plenty of time to make these before Christmas!

You've read before about the new team I started on Etsy called Celebration Times. Check out some of the lovely items some of our shops have listed for Christmas in July.

How darling is this tote bag for a child? There are adult sizes and designs, too. How about this beautiful tote bag with an angel that is ideal for knitting supplies? You'll find a variety of tote bags, one to suit everyone, on PatchworkCrafters.

Personalized ornaments are great, too. I can imagine lots of people who would be delighted to receive one as a Christmas gift. There are styles for Christmas, engagement, the newly married, and more - even one for the fisherman in the family. Check out OrnamentallySpeaking.

One of our shops makes wonderful corsages for special occasions. Here is one of her designs made for Christmas. She has many others though - for baby showers, birthdays, even one for Girl Scouts! She also has some lovely vintage hankies and tea cups.

Well, those are my shopping suggestions for today. Another thing I like about Christmas in July is it reminds of me cooler temperatures. If you are in the south like I am, you'll understand. (...And now I want to do a bit of sewing!)
