I've been meaning to create my own webpage for berrysprite so that I can offer a wider range of items... I especially tried hard after I won a contest from the lovely ladies over at Super Cute Kawaii for a free shopify account for a year a while back! In particular, I really wanted to share kawaii-but-not-handmade items I loved with others. Alas, I found that time/school/work constraints really prohibited me from growing my business much, and my stand-alone website has never come to fruition.
However, I still have a small box of kawaii non-handmade goodies which I've handpicked and absolutely love! I've been meaning to sell them in my berrysprite store, but I can't list them on etsy. Also I'm going to Japan (the land of KAWAII and CUTENESS) at the end of June... so I figured why hold on to this goodness any longer?
So I spent part of this holiday weekend building a mini-boutique store right here on my blog... Click over to the "Great Fun Shop" tab to go shopping! You can buy stuff right off my blog (how cool is that?)
And to celebrate, I'm having a sale there right now...After checkout, everything is discounted at least $1 to $2! At first I was going to have a discount applied after checkout, but I'm not sure if that will work, so I just marked stuff down. I'm also waiving my standard handling fees, so shipping will be whatever USPS normally charges for first class parcel shipping, domestic and international: no more, no less!
Here's a little preview of the offerings:
Please take a look at the Great Fun Shop :) I'd be happy to answer any questions. Also, here are the current USPS postage rates:

Since I've traveled so much in the past 2 weeks, I thought I'd break it up into two posts. So here's pics from my Hana, Maui trip! I don't really know what to say except that it was AWESOME. We were there for my fellowship and we talked to people in the community about their community-based marine resource management. The people were so warm and caring (but were also definitely concerned about the depletion of their resources from overuse and overfishing, as well as concerned about disrespect for their places and ways of life). It was definitely a trip I'll never forget :)
