A BIG Announcement: My Etsy Shop Launch + Giveaway! #WGshop

For a while, this announcement was a fat secret, which obviously means it’s not secret since I have been leaking you little hints on Instagram and Twitter and over here about this moment for weeks now (subtle, right? right). This is probably one of the most thrilling, nervous, weirdly satisfying moments of my meaningful adult life since I started blogging, so I’ll just say it:

Guys, I’M SELLING HOMEMADE TREATS ON MY NEW ETSY SHOP!!

Etsy-Store-Logo open now

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy: but here’s my Etsy…so order maybe? 😉

What is the Wallflour Girl Etsy shop?

It’s a new online marketplace where you can order my most popular homemade goodies and get them delivered right to your doorstep in just 2-3 business days! Customized just for you & your friends and made to order, the WG shop offers a rotating selection of fresh, flavor-twisted, WG exclusive treats: perfect for a thoughtful gift or just your own snacking enjoyment.

What makes your shop unique from other bake shops?

It features popular recipes you already know and trust–like my Favorite Puffy Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe–but with some brand new twists & flavors you’ve never seen before! Best of all, you and your friends won’t have to do your shopping cold turkey (I mean, it’s a treats shop–why would there be meat? Get it? Haha because cold turkey……..never mind), because you know so much about me and my baking philosophy already. So you’ll know I only deliver the best, the most addicting, the most reader-reviewed, and the freshest baked/raw treats around the country! Plus I’ll even do my best to customize them if you send me a really nice pretty please note with your order. Word.

What items do you feature?

My selection of treats is constantly rotating, with an emphasis on delivering my most raved-about goodies alongside some refreshing, healthy, vegan/gluten-free/allergy-friendly/raw options to suit every eater in your life. My October catalogue includes:

  • Addicting Caramel Snack MixCrunchy clusters of caramel-coated cereal, pretzels, and other bites make this an instant favorite. You’ll want to order more than just one, because this won’t last long! Perfect for holiday or event gift-giving.
  • All-Natural Peanut Butter (Vegan, GF): Most store-bought peanut butters are loaded with preservatives and ingredients you can’t pronounce. WG’s all-natural, vegan-friendly peanut butter is made with fresh peanuts and not much else. Comes in 4 fun varieties: Classic, Honey, Snickerdoodly, and PB & Chocolate.
  • Healthy Granola (available in Vegan Coffee Cookie Butter, Vegan Salted Chocolate Oat Bites, & Honey Almond): Using a recipe that has taken two years to perfect, WG homemade granola has received nothing but rave reviews from breakfasters and healthy snackers alike. Lightly toasted in the oven and made to order for the freshest quality, your 24oz. jar of granola comes in one of three varieties: 
  • Soft, Puffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free option): WG BESTSELLER: These incredible peanut butter cookies taste every ounce as soft, puffy, and peanut-packed as their photographs look! I have sold dozens of these to shops and organizations, to rave reviews. Now available in gluten-free as well!
  • Fudgy Baked Brownies (available in Classic, Chocolate Chunk, and Rocky Road): With a fudgy center, rich chocolatey flavor, and a coveted crackly top, these brownies are among the most requested WG recipes, and Ala’s personal favorite! Perfect for the chocolate lovers in your life–whether that’s a friend, guest, family member, colleague….or YOU! 

Make sure to check back at the beginning of each month for new additions to the shop selection!

Why should I buy from your shop?

Good question! For one thing,  you’ll have the unique opportunity to support a grad student blogger whose goal is to fake bake it to make it–ha! Every penny earned from your Etsy purchases will go back into maintaining, expanding, and creating new content on this blog you’re reading right now. As Wallflour Girl has grown, so has its budget–and while I’m working with some great sponsors on upcoming bake projects, my priority as a blogger is to continue giving back to my dedicated readers. I couldn’t think of a better way than by baking for you! Also, eating fresh, delicious goodies is a whole lot tastier than licking the computer screen (believe me, I’ve tried)…Would it help if I mentioned that your support would totally mean the world to me? Talk about giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “brownie points”!

Oh, and in case you needed one more reason: COUPONS.
