Lu & Ed’s 7 Year Envyversary Celebration!

Hip pip hooray! Today marks 7 YEARS since I launched my Storenvy shop. Whoa. I can’t believe how far my little monster shop has come in 7 years. I can’t believe how much Storenvy has evolved in 7 years! When I joined, there was barely 500 stores on the platform, and now there’s hundreds of thousands of Storenvy sellers!

My business has grown so much thanks to all of you – thanks to your support, cheering me on, kind words, orders, referrals, fan photos to keep me trucking when my eyes are crossing from sewing too much. Thank you all. I couldn’t have made it this far without my sweet, awesome, wonderful monster loving fans!  I have made some super amazing friends through the Storenvy community – and I decided to reach out to some of my favorites to together a huge giveaway to thank you all for your constant support & love, and to celebrate 7 years selling on Storenvy! Woohoo!!

Sidenote: This will be one of the LAST giveaways I host this year, so if you want a chance to get your hands on some free Lu & Ed monster merch, make sure to enter and come back daily to earn your daily entries every day this week, too!

Speaking of daily entries, this giveaway has a ton of ways to earn entries, including some that involve Storenvy functions like Watching & Envying items on Storenvy. I’ll post screen shots on how to do that below – but first here’s the prize line up!

Entries can also be earned by Envying a product. An Envy is basically “liking” the product. Your Envies will show up on your user profile so you can easily find items you’ve liked to purchase at a later date. They also show in the feed of anyone who follows you, allowing you the opportunity to start trends and become a popular user on Storenvy! Photo example below!

Super easy peasy! You can also earn entries by sharing products from the stores to social media – you can do one blog post a day with products from each shop, share on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, or even pin some items to Pinterest! Then just post the URL of your share into the giveaway widget for the entry to count!
