Discover Markets of Sunshine an Win a Pet Prize Pack!

Have you ever been in this situation?  You’ve looked around and seen tons of products that you want.  They are all fabulous.  And it would be too hard to choose just one.  And if you could just get a sample of everything it would make your heart oh so happy!  This is how I feel just about every time I go to Etsy.  I bounce from product to product amazed by the talent and in awe of the abilities of these artists.  And time after time I have wished there was some way to try each product.  Well, now there is a solution and I think I’m in love with it!


Markets of Sunshine is a group of women and men, working together, promoting and selling our handmade items. Offering a wide range of goods for every member of your family, located in our Market Place.

Now, that in itself sounds pretty awesome, right?  But when you see how it works, you’ll be even more amazed.  You see, they have individual shops where you can purchase your favorite items, all directly from the Co-Op website.  But, if you’re like me and just can’t pick one thing, they also have a sampler gift basket that revolves around a theme and allows you to get tons of fabulous items for one low price!  Pretty neat, huh?

Right now, the theme just so happens to be a pet lovers theme.  So you can choose either a small or large sample bag filled with full size products!  I recently received the large size sample bag and let me give you a sneak peak of what was inside.


Each of the items in the sample bag were handmade and perfect.  It included:

A homemade wooden sign from Femmesleigh Unique Deigns.  This beautiful wooden sign is perfect for hanging your keys or the pet’s leashes and looks great with any decor.

A catnip mouse from Country Cents.  This 100% pure catnip toy is super cute and will thrill your feline friend for hours!

Beeswax Tarts from Jeanpatch by MK.  Not only are these tarts super cute but they smell great too!  They are perfect for any warmer and will make your home smell fabulous.

Beautiful earrings from DLA Bead Design.  These stunning earrings are a great pop of color and perfect to make any pet owner look and feel fabulous!

A bookmark from Pages of Ages.  This cute bookmark will remind you of your love of pets, even when you’re reading indoors!

A pet inspired key chain from Delecto Art.  Be reminded of your love for your pets every time you grab your car keys with this cute keychain.

A black wool mouse with catnip, handstamped Hello Turtle gift bag with ribbon and adornment and bunny and bird favor tags from WoodstreamDream and WoodstreamPapery.  These super cute items will allow you to give gifts in pet inspired style to friends and family.

A Dog Lariat fro CJW Design Village.  Add this cute lariat to your backpack, cell phone, purse zipper and more to always remember in fashionable style how much you love your pet.

Doggie Organic Soap from Wee Princess.  This organic soap is sure to leave your dog looking and smelling great without irritating his or her skin.

A enbroidered doggie towel from Kalliescotton.  This super cute towel is perfect for a hand towel or to carry on walks to take care of your pooch if he or she gets wet!

Each of these items are super cute and by getting all of them together, you’re ensured to find several things that you love.  This is a great way to find new Etsy shops to fall in love with and get ten full sized samples that revolve around a theme that you love!

I was so impressed with the time and effort that went into putting this sample pack together and loved that each item was created to fit with the specific theme.  Markets of Sunshine has done such a great job showcasing shops that I may not have known about on my own and has put together items that are sure to become favorites of yours!  I love that they take the searching out of the equation for me and make it easy to find everything I need!

Their themes change regularly too, so you can find different items that you love all year long!  If you are ready to purchase you own sample bag from Markets of Sunshine today, head on over to their site here.  You can get all 10 sample items for only $30!  That’s pretty amazing!  And by signing up for their newsletter, you can even get a special discount!

But wait!  One of my lucky readers is going to win a 10 item sample bag of their own.  The items in the bag may vary slightly from what I have shown you above (be a different pattern) but you will receive a full size sample from each of the shops I told you about.

  1. Amanda Goldsmith says

    I would love to see shampoos for dogs or dog probiotic powders. Dental health stuff for them would be good, too!

  2. Pam A. says

    I am excited to see what the doggie soap is like. I feel like some shampoo smells great for a day or 2 and then wears off.

  3. Laura says

    I take my dog everywhere with me, so I would love to see a bag that would hold everything from toys, food, treats, etc.

  4. patricia gambrell says

    i would love to see a bag that is great for the gym… dont need to be to big or bulky just right for a small towel, cell phone, wallet, headphones, and keys

  5. Anne says

    There’s such a broad assortment of beautiful items in this set, it’s hard to think of something NOT included! But I think a handmade photo frame would round it out nicely, and could be changed to suit whatever the theme of the set might be.

  6. Charlotte Raynor says

    I would love to see the little towel that is embroidered with puppies on it. Thanks for the great giveaway! :-)

  7. Jill D says

    I would love to see dog treats and/or (non latex) toys. I’d like to see a pack that is filled with stuff that a dog could actually enjoy rather than just being pet themed.

  8. CA Scott says

    Totally off track but I would like to see herbal or good for you type foods as trying them can be expensive and then if we don’t like whatever feel like I have wasted money.

  9. kailee Bowman says

    anything doggie related, Like dental stuff, or dog treats. We go through ALOT of treats in my home

  10. Colleen Schilinski says

    I’d like to see recipe’s for Peanut Butter Snacks for pup’s. My dog love’s peanut butter and I’d like to know howto make some for her.

  11. Amy (Merriam) McCain says

    I really want to learn about herbal remedies…for health, beauty, and for cooking. So a sample pack of different herb products would be wonderful! Maybe a couple packs for cooking, a couple little bags of teas, etc…and a few products for healing different ailments. A “starter kit” into the world of herbs!!

  12. dawn cook says

    how about some catnip for my pups playmates?? i’m amazed at how the dog and cats get along! the dog was 6 months old when we found 1 kitten and 8 months old when we found another kitten…now a year later, they are best buds! kitten 1 even would try to nurse off of the dog!

  13. Bettina says

    Would love to see more pet related stuff, because honestly this is the best thing for me! There aren’t enough pet related giveaways.

  14. Shannon L. Barlow says

    What about a “Beach Bag”?? 1 containing, beach towel, suntan oil, sunglasses, bathing suit, sandals (not flip flops), kids beach toys in some and some without, cooler bag. If I lived near a beach, I’d definitely buy one of these.
