The Quirky Gift Guide: An Etsy Elite 16 Style Guide Challenge

We like to plan ahead and so we're already thinking about the holiday buying season.  Why wait until the last minute when you feel the pressure of the holidays sitting on your head like a big onion?  Nobody likes having an onion head!  We don't want you to feel that sort of stress and so we're going to work to make things easy for you.  

This is our bi-monthly challenge where our Etsy Elite 16 members will be curating collections using the theme for this week "Quirky Gift Guide".  Gift guides are a great way to present items together around a given theme - throw 'quirky' in there and who knows what our talented members will come up with!  Will it be about a cockroach named Casey who likes high fashion when she's not busy sending out cards and lurking around at night?   

As the winner from our last challenge, an item from Brooke's Etsy shop peifferStudios will be featured in the top row of each collection.  Her shop is filled with great gift ideas so we're looking forward to seeing how our team works them into their gift guides!

Don't miss our hand-selected gift guides - we'll be posting them as active links here on the blog.  We're an international team and so we'll start Thursday October 13th at noon EST and go until Friday October 14th at noon EST to give all our members a chance to play!  

See you soon!
