Yay vegan etsy! I'm planning on doing as much of my xmas shopping on etsy as possible this year :)

1. Debbie Kowalski donates all her proceeds to the animal sanctuary she started, For the Animals: http://www.etsy.com/shop/fortheanimalsjewelry?ref=pr_shop_more# This "vegan" pendant is quite lovely: http://www.etsy.com/listing/68646553/india-inspired-vegan-beauty

1. Panda with Cookie is donating 10% of all zine and personalized cat and dog ornament sales to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. I love the shop's Giant Tofu Pirate Pillow listed here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/63142447/giant-tofu-pirate-pillow-possibly-for. It is one of the most creative items I have seen in some time!

2. I think darkfaerie's Custom OOAK Handmade Brooch is a beautiful way to showcase one's veganism and this item is definitely on my list this year! http://www.etsy.com/listing/87210512/custom-ooak-handmade-brooch?ref=sr_gallery_30&ga_search_type=all&ga_search_query=Veganetsy+Team&ga_facet=

3. Who doesn't want fancy vegan caremel's for Christmas. The caramels available at feedyourface look simply divine! I would love to try their Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels: http://www.etsy.com/listing/81669602/vegan-organic-dark-chocolate-sea-salt

1. I really like this shirt by
RareTeeClothing, and they donate $1 of every item purchased to wildlife conservation.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/79157320/north-american-honey-bee-crew-neck-tee

2. I love these buttons from SickOnSin, esp. the I <3 Tofu one! http://www.etsy.com/listing/21016481/veg-out-1-inch-button-pack-pick-any-3

3. From cards to plush to prints, MyZoetrope has THE CUTEST STUFF. I want "Hello Spring Rain Cloud"... http://www.etsy.com/listing/54828203/hello-spring-rain-cloud-8x10-fine-art

moonsword said...

1.veganessa ~ Also a member of the Etsy for Animals team which provides charitable relief to animals...yay! My favorite item is the Upcycled Workbag made of washed out black canvas with colourful Vegan patches...supercool!
http://www.etsy.com/transaction/25765646
2.VeganDish ~ Vegan BOLD cereal bowl in aqua is on my list because I want a bowl for my So Delicious Turtle Trails...and hands off for my non-vegan sweetie!
http://www.etsy.com/listing/82890895/vegan-bold-cereal-bowl-in-aqua
3.Veganville ~ okay, seriously, I don't care if you're a sausage-stuffing, cheese-puffing carnivore, there's no way you could turn down a gift basket of these goodies. Especially the Vegan Peanut Butter Swirl Smarty Pants Fudgy Brownies...I want to be wherever these are, right now.

1. I'm loving Paula Menetrey's custom pet portraits, and I have stunningly beautiful cats, I think we were destined to meet in life :-) http://www.etsy.com/listing/58866674/custom-pet-portrait-realistic-9-x-12?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_includes%5B0%5D=tags&ga_search_query=veganetsy+team&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet= Paula donates 10$ of every commission to a local animal charity in OH.

2. SweetVConfections' helps proclaim my vegan life by providing food people will actually want to EAT and appeal to the non-vegan'ers, a way to pull them to the light :-D The Vegan Cookie Gift Basket would do the trick instantly! http://www.etsy.com/listing/79505632/vegan-cookie-gift-basket

3. McFarland Designs does amazing things with reclaimed metals. My husband lost his wedding band in the reservoir this summer :-( and ever since the search to find a ring that would fit him, us, and our future. This solid band does the trick, along with a NUMBER of their designs. They've raised a TON of money to help Mayan families, a need not seen in the media that often but special nontheless. In my wildest dreams, I would love to commission this ring http://www.etsy.com/listing/71209435/stunning-moissanite-and-recycled-14k

My store also dedicates its proceeds to providing direct support to foster cats in my own home from my local shelter. They stay anywhere from 1-8 weeks and although the shelter DOES provide resources, in my mind, the more resources I/we can provide, that's just that much more the Iowa City Animal Center will have to go around. My store funds my ability to foster. www.CatInTheBoxCreations.Etsy.com

A giveaway? That's awesome!

1. Luna's Apawthecary is donating a whopping 20% to cat care at C & W Rustic Hollow Shelter. My favourite from this shop is the Brown Fleece Pawprint cat bed (http://www.etsy.com/listing/87786521/cat-bed-paw-prints-fleece-brown-with).

2. My favourite item to "proclaim your veganity to the world" is the Fly Away Be Free Bird Cage Necklace from ladiesblend (http://www.etsy.com/listing/71759353/fly-away-be-free-bird-cage-necklace). It's a really amazing sentiment to see a bird breaking free from a cage and it speaks to the "key" of what veganism is about - letting go of our hold on other animals.

3. I'm very partial to everything sold at MyZoetrope, but wouldn't be able to give anything away as a gift because I would want to keep it all for myself! Current favourites are the 2012 Wall Calendar (http://www.etsy.com/listing/81878173/2012-wall-calendar-8x10) and the Woodland Animal pencil case (http://www.etsy.com/listing/83233047/zippered-pouch-pen-case-woodland-animal)

Contact e-mail is vegan dot seeds at gmail dot com.

Thanks for the chance to win, and good luck to everybody!
