Etsy summer finds |

Summer is here! Is summer here? I don't know, really... But I collected some little etsy treasures that make me (and hopefully you, too) feel like summer.

I've gotten a little cautious when it comes to announcing the beginning or end of a new season because last time I did this I was terribly wrong.


And I also want to use the chance to introduce you to MINA MOKA's first partner. Hmmm, guess who? You're right! It's etsy!


A couple of weeks ago I received an email from etsy and they invited me to be part of the partnership program they are launching right now. I was very surprised and happy to be asked because I am a big fan of etsy and the idea and community behind it and it's a place where I've discovered many great designers, artist and crafters.

In addition to that it responds well with the way I want MINA MOKA to be, because it gives me the chance to (maybe? hopefully?) make some pocket money without losing my independence and authenticity, because I am totally free if, when, what and how I feature etsy sellers or products - which I already did before I joined the partnership programm anyways. 


So what does this mean for you? Not much, actually. If you click on one of the etsy products that I write about here (or on the banner on the left) and decide to purchase something I will eventually get a small percentage - which doesn't mean you are paying more, of course. So it doesn't really change anything for you, but I wanted to be as transparent about it as possible. And don't worry, I won't bombard you with etsy links now.  


So I hope you don't mind the little banner on the left - and I wish you a sunny rest of the week!

    Thank you so much, Judith and Mette! Yeah, time for the bar, open the champagne! And maybe some cacti cupcakes as well?
    Those flats are gorgeous, aren't they? So special. And the leather looks really soft, too. But please do an etsy post, too, Mette - I'd love to see your picks!

    That's great stuff and a great partnership.

    They are heavily marketing in the UK too so anyone interested get in touch with me as I've been approached and can put you in touch.

    I think it fits your blog perfectly. I've always enjoyed people's curation on Etsy and no doubt I will enjoy yours:-)

    Love the clutch bag.
    Have a great weekend! x
