Share with LAB readers something from your fabulous handmade shop. Whether it’s on Etsy, Big Cartel, Shopify, Supadupa, Indiemade, Storenvy, Supermarket, Society6, Zibbet, your own hosted shop or any other platform, you’re welcome to jump in.


Here’s how it works:

  1. Post a link in the comments to one specific item in your shop that you would like to promote.
  2. Provide, if you have one, at least one link to your social media accounts.
  3. Be sure that your offering follows my Submissions guidelines.
  4. If you have a discount code, please provide it in the comments as well. If you create a discount code exclusively for the LAB, make a note of it and I will promote the shops that do on other posts throughout the month. The code should include the word ‘LAB’ in it and the discount amount.

Since we don’t promote holiday items on the LAB, please promote items in your shop that have year round appeal. One last thing: If you use Twitter and would like to get even more promotion, post a link to the item you promoted on this post and add the hashtag #labshopshare. I promise to retweet like there’s no tomorrow.
