Fall Business Women Expo - Booth#31

Hi Everyone,

I am participating in the Fall business women's online expo starting tomorrow September 26Th at midnight and ending on Sunday the 27Th but the links will be up for a while if you can't get to all of them this weekend. Please come and see my shop and everyone else's shops there are a lot of talented people. I will post what booth number I am in a little bit and the sale and/or contest I will be running for this special event :) Thank you for setting this whole expo Runako Designs :) I can't wait to participate.

A little about me and my bussinesses
 I want to tall you a little bit about me and my businesses. The first busines I opened is my one of a kind hand made jewelry business. I started out about 4 years ago now, at the time I had a room mate that worked at an incredible bead shop that is right down the road from my house called Bead it. They can be found online at they are located in 5 North Main Street Concord NH if you get a chance you should go there their selection and quality of beads is absolutely amazing! And the staff is just amazing they are so nice and they are extremely knowledgalbe. It is owned by a mother (Donna) daughter (Christine) team and they are the best. So I started out with the basic stitches and reading a lot of books and then once I had the basics down I started to branch out and make my own designs. I offer bridal jewelry, bridal party jewelry, breast cancer awareness jewelry (soon to come all other awareness jewelry) Necklace, bracelets, earrings, and everyday jewelry I also do custom pieces if you you have something in mind or a color/colors that you want I will make a custom design for you. I started my business for a couple of reasons
  1~ I wanted to make the people that wear my jewelry feel amazing about themselves and give them an extra boost of confidence and feel beautiful everytime they wear a piece of my jewelry, also knowing they had the only piece like it in the world.
My 2nd reason was my house was being overtaken by jewelry :)
 The second business I have is a handmade all natural spa product shop. I opened this business to be able to help people look and feel beautiful inside and out. I started this about a year ago and started out making soy candles which I love because they burn clean and don't let carcinogins out into the air, and helps promote US farmers, there is more about the benefits of soy in my shop announcement at
After I started making soy candles I wanted to make other products that are all natural with no chemicals, and that are scented naturally with essential oils instead of fragrance oils that can irritate peoples skin. So I have made sugar scrubs, bath salts, body mists, lotions, soy candles and soy tarts, facial scrubs, and bath bombs. This business is still expanding as of right now. I'm looking at starting to make mineral make up, lip glosses and lip sticks, mascara, eye liners and so on.

~ I have a fundraiser going on in my ETSY shop for Breast Cancer Awareness, if you buy anything with pink in it from my jewelry 20% of the total price will be donated to ABCF (American Breast Cancer Foundation) They do not test on animals and their mission is to get care for everyone regardless of age, race or financial status.
