We interrupt our regularly scheduled program (our Changemaker series that is — which will continue on through Christmas Eve) to bring you a special announcement! Our Hen House has opened our very own Etsy Shop! Here to tell you about the new store, which features products made by vegans for vegans and which 100% benefits Our Hen House, is Nicholas Laccetti, who will be joining us starting next month as our first official Our Hen House intern-extraordinaire!
Serving as the interweb’s local antique shop, Etsy is a great resource for finding unique handmade or vintage items, including vegan selections. Now Our Hen House is in on the fun! The Our Hen House Etsy Shop is now open, with a beautiful selection of 100% vegan handmade jewelry and knits (the latter by Beth Begany)!
Everything featured on the shop is dazzling, but some of my favorites include this incredible pair of bronze bauble earrings, which look like something straight out of Arabian Nights, the “Trellis” acrylic scarf, and the “Plucky” fingerless gloves (in fact, all of the gloves and scarves are particularly awesome).
But don’t take my word for it: take a look for yourself, and, if you’re in New York City, do some last minute holiday shopping with our exclusive NEW YORK CITY SPECIAL! If you are in NYC and would like your item HAND-DELIVERED on Thursday, December 23d, just include a comment with your order that specifies a preferred time for delivery, along with any information we might need to get your items safely in your hands. The first 10 people who take advantage of this NYC deal will receive a pair of FREE CHICKEN EARRINGS or a ZIPPER PULL, courtesy of Bonnifide Designs! So order now! (To qualify, you must be in NYC and order by the end of the day on December 22.)
Again, all of the items on our shop are 100% vegan. All purchases that you make through our Etsy page will go directly to Our Hen House! Your contribution will help Our Hen House reach more people through expanded efforts and improved multimedia capabilities. It’s really a win-win situation for everyone involved.
