157: your ad here.
As most of you may have heard from our facebook & twitter updates, our shop is on a bit of a hiatus right now. Unfortunately, CanadaPost Postal Service was going through rotating strikes & just yesterday, all employees were locked out. This put all mail services to a complete stand still & as our main mode of shipping, that leaves us out in the cold! It's not like we have hundreds of packages to mail out each day but with what few we do have to get out to our customers, it's really screwing small businesses. In 48 hours, they might be forced to go back to work, which is a glimmer of hope for us, but we're still a bit upset about it all.
The L&B shop is currently our only source of income, so it's a lot of pressure to make ends meet.
I've taken the time with the shop temporarily closed to finally do something that I've been meaning to get around to! I've wanted to introduce the opportunity for fellow small businesses and blogs to place ads on "Syl and Sam". So I've prepared our sponsorship page with all the details to get started!
Our goal with the sponsorships is to bring businesses and blogs that are of interest to our readers & suit the vision and style of this blog. We are going to be careful about accepting advertisers that are true to US (that means you too, readers)! And we are hoping that this also means more giveaways and features for our audience to look forward to.
So for now, we're on the hunt for new sponsors who appeal to cool gals, who have a soft side & an edgy side. Our prices are starting at very affordable rates & we have amazingly loyal readers who love fashion & diy. So please check out our sponsorship page or give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
