What better way to celebrate a once-every-hundred-years day than with a store-wide sale? That’s right, folks, from 12:01am until 11:59pm on Sunday, October 10, everything in my Etsy shop is 10% off!

Haven’t purchased anything off Etsy before? It’s ridiculously simple: Visit my shop, fill up your cart with happily handmade Ana Apple goodies, plug in your PayPal or credit card info, and sit back with your beverage of choice while I fire up my trusty sewing machine, Gretchen.

Mostly everything in the shop can be customized to your choice of size, color and design. Send me a message in advance to get a head-start on your shopping!
And, because I’m in a giving mood (and I’m a girl who loves a freebie), I’m also dishing out $10 gift certificates to ten (count em, ten) lucky fans!

There are THREE ways to win:
-Five winners will be selected at random from my Ana Apple Facebook fans who ‘Attend’ this Event, which shows me that you want to be included in the drawing.

-Three winners will be selected at random from my monthly email list. Not signed up for ‘An Apple a Month’ emails? Let me know at and I’ll gladly get you started. *If you’re worried about spam, I see it as for eating, not sending!

-Two winners will be selected at random from my customers at Second Saturday (20th and K, midtown Sac, from 6-10pm) who enter the drawing (all I need is your name + email).

Or, hey, if you’re in it to win it, increase your odds by doing all three 🙂

(Oh, and don’t worry; the gift certificates don’t need to be used by the end of the sale. You’ll have until the end of the year!)
We at Ana Apple Designs (as in me, Gretchen, and 3 tons of fabric) cannot tell you how much your support has meant as the line continues to grow. I adore my line and appreciate everyone who has kept me going! Look forward to many more promotions throughout the holiday season!

Please share this event with anyone and everyone you think would like to participate! Thanks 🙂
