Pierogi Picnic: BOGO Buy One Get One Free Sale!

This is a Pierogi Picnic first!

Starting on Sunday, January 12th through Saturday, January 18th, we’ll be holding a BOGO Sale in the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop! Not familiar with the term? It means Buy One Get One Free! That’s right. For every item you purchase you can add a second item to the cart for free!

Have we lost our minds?! How could we be offering such a good deal? Here’s our reasoning: It’s the New Year and we have a lot of old designs that we’d love to send along to permanent homes to make way for the Spring collection. So by participating in the BOGO sale you’re actually doing us a favor!

Sale terms: To qualify all purchases must be made between 1/12-1/18. The second item must be chosen from the designated BOGO category within the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop and the buyer must complete the transaction as normal.  Once we see your purchase come through – we’ll refund you for the BOGO item  – and wallah! You’ll be on your way to handmade nirvana. 

Questions about the sale? Send us an email! pierogipicnic@gmail.com

Happy Shopping!

Pierogi Picnic: Handmade Eco-Friendly Men's Cotton Bow Tie

Who doesn’t love a dapper looking gent?! This new incarnation of the classic “Perfect Gent” Pierogi Picnic bow tie design has a new texture and feel, making it even easier to pair with a guy’s everyday wardrobe. Handmade using sweatshirt fabric scraps, the “Perfect Gent” bow ties have a solid structure, soft feel, and clip on back, making it a fast way to add a dash of gentlemanly charm to any outfit. Coming in a variety of sizes, it makes a fantastic stocking stuffer too! Check out the full link of “Perfect Gent” bow ties here.

Pierogi Picnic: Made to order eco clothing

With the holidays quickly approaching I am drafting up a strategy for custom orders and gift-savvy turn-around times. In an effort to ensure that all made-to-order pieces are received by late December, Pierogi Picnic will be closing down this side of the site come December 1st.

So if there’s a dress or sweater you know will make the perfect gift for that special sustainably-minded someone – be sure to place your order between now and November 30th. After that custom orders won’t be activated again until January 1st.

If you miss the custom order deadline – fear not! We’ll be offering gift certificates all season long!

Here’s to an amazing holiday season for all!

the dodger: eco-friendly cowl

Oh boy – do I like a man in dapper duds! Maybe it’s the Dr. Who fan in me – but bow ties, hats, scarves – you name it and I’m there!

Finally acknowledging this lust for gentlemanly accessories I’ve decided to focus this season’s menswear on fun little additives. My hope is to help guys be a bit more posh than the dude next door.

First up in the new collection is what I simply call,  “The Dodger“. Inspired by the “No Sweat” men’s sweatshirt that has become one of my all-time best-sellers, “The Dodger” works off a similar design premise: chic, comfortable, and tangle-free. With a fun color-blocked design and subtle military-inspired details, these new cowls are sure to be a hit with no-nonsense guys who want to add a pop to their cold weather wardrobes.

Here’s to decking out the boys in lots of fun accessories this season!

Herbivore Botanicals: natural vegan mens skin care

I’m somewhat of a natural cosmetics junkie – always ready to try the latest DIY tonic or small-batch soaps. Whether makeup or bath bombs, as long as they’re natural and cruelty-free, I’m always willing to give them a try. So when I stumbled upon the vegan Etsy-based skincare Herbivore Botanicals, I knew I was sold.

Featured in an Etsy shopping guide for Father’s Day, I scooped up a men’s gift set for my hubby. “It’s an early Father’s Day present!” I told him. “But we don’t have kids” he protested. Four-legged babes count – don’t they?! Besides, I thought it would be more apt for him to try the line as it’s meant for toning the skin of those with facial hair, something I’m thankful I don’t qualify for.

pierogi picnic rcf holiday 2012

As promised – here’s a peek at the abundant and delightful chaos that was the 2012 Renegade Holiday Craft Fair in Chicago!

The crowds were bigger than ever this season, which made for a busy day! Caitlin and I were on our toes the entire weekend, greeting shoppers, answering questions and selling lots!

It was a fruitful endeavor that always leaves me feeling inspired and invigorated. I loved seeing many repeat clients come shopping through – as well as the friendly faces of fellow vendors. Whether selling, shopping or mingling, I had an absolute blast! Am I exhausted after the fact? You bet! But every ounce of energy poured into preparing and executing this fair was well worth it!!!

Sir Cycle: Eco Upcycled Men's Cowl Hoodie by Pierogi Picnic

Sir Cycle, definitely my most popular design of the season, is now in stock and ready to ship!

I have several of these super warm and chic men’s hoodies remaining from last weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair. Those of you who are doing your holiday shopping can now skip the wait for a custom order and buy one that has already been created!

Check out my Etsy shop here to scoop one up before they’re gone!
