The Launch of Quaintly Amusing & Giveaway!

Celebrating! The Launch of Quaintly Amusing
I am happy to announce that after countless trials and much hard work hunting for the perfect party supplies and decor, I have decided to offer my “quaintly amusing” finds for all to buy!

Planning the perfect party isn’t easy and surely enough accessorizing your perfect day can be daunting. Finding all the right accessories at one store is impossible. In fact, those perfect party gems or “quaintly amusing” treasures are often scattered amongst thousands of distributors, stores and sites. As a purveyor of quirky, unique and fun party supplies, I only feel it’s fair to pass these goodies along to be enjoyed and cherished by others.

The Quaintly Amusing  Story
I’m a bit of a scavenger hunter and I love finding party supplies, especially items that no one would every necessarily consider using as part of a party. After planning my son's 1st birthday party I received tons of emails and requests from party planning moms looking for some of the same products and vendors I used. The majority of the time, I’m asked if there are any leftover items that I would be willing to sell; and the answer is yes, I do! 

I have affectionately named my new shop Quaintly Amusing and I will be selling party supplies and party decor. To me, Quaintly Amusing is the expression of the precious moments created by the unique décor and accessories used to detail a party in order for it to come to life. I love party planning and I appreciate the memories created by the special accents of whimsy. Quaintly Amusing celebrates those extra touches. Quaintly Amusing celebrates the details.

I hope to eventually expand and have been getting some great advice from my friend and Marketing Consultant, Caroline. I already have a few things listed (mostly reserved listings) at my shop, but plan on adding a lot more items in the following few weeks. With Quaintly Amusing, I hope to provide the items, products and décor that will one day be part of everyone’s quaintly amusing party or event.

Quaintly Amusing finds will be available on Etsy, simply the craftiest website out there!

No celebration would be complete without a big giveaway! As a great big thank you to all my followers and party planning mommies, I'm having a Quaintly Amusing Giveaway! One lucky follower will receive a $50 Etsy shopping spree, on me!
