black friday boutiqueIf you have an online business or etsy shop you’d like to promote this holiday season,


Join Somewhat Simple, I Heart Nap Time & Craftaholics Anonymous for our annual


General Information:

What you get: Your shop featured on and Black Friday thru Cyber Monday.

Reserve your spot: There are a limited number of booths available per category. Last year the vendor spots filled up FAST, so if you are interested in reserving your own online booth, don’t wait- act now!

Dates: This boutique will go live at 12:01am the day after Thanksgiving. It will remain on both sites for all of Black Friday, all of Saturday & Sunday, and all of Cyber Monday.

Cost: We have a couple different sizes of ads available, ranging from $50- $100. All reservations are booked by the form below and they are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Shop Discounts: To be a vendor at this boutique, please offer a discount for our readers. Remember, this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year and the better the discount, the better your sales will be! Some examples of a discount could be free shipping, free gift wrap, free item with purchase or a percentage off the price.


Great! All ads will be reserved by using the form at the bottom of this post. Here is what to do next:

1. Pick the category that fits your shop best. If your shop fits more than one category, you are welcome to purchase multiple spaces just as long as you only have ONE ad per category.

2. Choose an ad size:

  • The BASIC package includes a 200 x 150 pixel  shop logo and 1 product image for $50.
  • The PREMIUM package includes a 300 x 300 pixel shop logo and 3 product images.

Here is an example of what each ad size may look like*:

PP 200

The BASIC Ad Option

PP 300

The PREMIUM Ad Option

*Designs may vary depending on logos and images and are subject to change at any time.

3. Click “Buy Now” and follow the prompts.


  • Uploading your image: Please upload a square shop logo if you are purchasing a BASIC ad, or upload a horizontal logo if you are purchasing a premium ad. We will visit your site and pick which item(s) we’d like to include in the collage, so no need to worry about that!
  • The dates listed in the description of the ad spot are not accurate- all ads will go live on Black Friday, not the date mentioned.
  • Please email if you have questions BEFORE you book your spot.

Again, all reservations are final and cannot be changed. 


1. Cater to all price ranges. You will have people visiting your shop with different budgets. Make sure there is something for everyone.

2. Stock up your store. The more you have to sell, the more time people will spend browsing your shop and the more likely they are to find something they love!

3. Help advertise this boutique! If we work together, our shopping crowd will be even bigger! Blog about it, use Facebook and Twitter and email everyone you know!
