1 year anniversay on etsy and the return of the flea

April 16, 2009 |  Category:   the biz


It’s our Etsy anniversary which means that a year ago today we opened up shop for online orders. Etsy was initially supposed to be a temporary venue until we had our own website outfitted with e-commerce but it’s been so good to us that we’ve decided to keep it open. We quietly passed the day that we officially consider our first day of business, April 6th which was the first day of the Brooklyn Flea, but the Flea is returning this Saturday, April 18th to what it supposed to be warm and sunny weather. Last year at the inaugural opening, it was damn chilly and we froze our butts off, but it was such a memorable day. I still remember the very first sale that we made to our first customer not long after doors opened. I practically jumped up and down and hugged the poor unsuspecting guy. In related news, we had a nice mention in this New York Magazine article about food at the Flea.

So to celebrate this month of anniversaries we’re hosting a giveaway to our beloved blog readers. 2 people, chosen at random, will win their choice of 3 products or one of our Classic or Herbs & Spices gift boxes. Just leave a comment, any comment. Winners will be picked next Monday. **Note, my friend just reminded me that yes, the giveaway is only open to US folks – we are so sorry that international shipping isn’t cheaper or faster.

Oh, and yes, the lemongrass marshmallows are finally in the shops, new photos and all.

UPDATE: Winners announced! Many thanks to all who entered and congrats to our winners Jackie and Darleen!

    I’m so excited to win one of the 2 prizes!! I’m waiting for my husband to get home so we can pick our treats. Wanted to make it out from the ‘burbs of Jersey to the Flea last weekend, but Saturday was so gorgeous we got stuck doing useful garden stuff. Then Sunday was less gorgeous so we puttered around. 🙂

    Congrats on your anniversary! Quick question — do you use gelatin in your marshmallows or are they vegan/vegetarian?
