Teaching Tuesday- Shop til ya Drop (holiday series final installment)

Since We are less than one week away from Christmas, yes folks, just four more days!, I am pretending that today is Wednesday instead of Tuesday! Don't worry, we will make Wednesday our Tuesday this week, and still get in an informative post! Since today is the last day that many shops will be shipping for your Christmas gift giving, I want to look at another place where you may find those last minute gifts. This site is actually a relatively new shopping site, with under one hundred vendors. What sets these vendors apart from the millions on other shopping sites, is that they consist of herbalists and naturalists.
The sites' name is Poppy Swap, and their tag line is, "we bring people herbs," which really says it all!  Aside from bath and body products, the shops at Poppy Swap offer herbal remedies, teas (yes, the drinking kind), pet products, foods, art inspired by nature, and many other unique items. Designed to be an on-line herbal market, the site supports herbalists and farmers, as well as promoting organic living. They are also big educational advocates, so be sure to check out the blog, as well as the  community forum. Plan on spending a bit of time clicking your way around, cuz there are many interesting shops, covering a variety of product categories. To make your search a bit easier, the main page has a list of product categories down its left side, so you can just click and go! Of course, if you are looking for a specific shop you can use the search bar or scroll through the shop names, which begin on the main page. Just want to play ennie meenie and try something new? There are a set of [rotating] featured shops on the main page, so be bold and click on one and go!

While Unique Garden Essences does have a Poppy Swap store front, it is not well populated. So, if you would like a product or a gift set, please contact me through this blog, email, or via the Etsy shop, where you can view more of my product line. Today will be the last day that I will accept Christmas orders, and all orders will be sent priority mail with delivery confirmation for the best chance of arriving on time.
