"the witching hours" on blockhead radio

I must credit The Copper Cauldron with most of the words you are about to read...

Who?
Blockhead Radio is an internet based radio show hosted on Blogtalkradio. Blockhead Radio is all about introducing artisans of all types to the world: independent music artists, independent authors, independent artisans who specialize in handcrafted goods.

What?
"The Witching Hours" (hosted by agoodwitchtoo) is just one of the many fabulous shows on Blockhead Radio (for a list of shows and what they are all about visit the website). "The Witching Hours" is focused on bringing the concept of the Handmade Movement to listeners and thus potential buyers.

It is designed to spotlight the Saturday Night Sales that many Etsy shops run on Saturday Nights.

Also, every week there will be a Treasure Hunt of 15 participating shops (and zuzu girl handmade is one of them this week!) The Treasure Hunt's theme will be one of "Follow the Yellow Brick Road..." (very fitting if you know anything about Zuzu). The Treasure Hunt is designed to get people browsing through shops, clicking and looking through each shops listing for the picture that will let them know the next link is contained in the item description. The first one to call in or email agoodwitchtoo with the complete list of participating shops will be the winner.

When?
Every Saturday Night from 5pm until 7pm EST "The Witching Hours" coincides with the beginning of a long standing promo thread started by Willowglass. You can read more about this Saturday Night Special portion by going to Etsy's SNS blog.

Where?
Why from the comfort of your very own homes! Get yourself a beverage of choice and wear your favorite pajamas.

Remember, you will need to sign up for an account at www.blogtalkradio.com to be able to join us in the chat room. The call in number is (646) 649-1320.

Why?
We're dedicated to getting the message out to the world that Handmade is where it is at! There is no better way to stimulate our economy than by directly supporting small businesses instead of lining the pockets of the already wealthy corporations. Not to say we discourage shopping with the big corporations. But where else are you going to find quality wares, excellent customer service, and be able to support artisans?
