Sylum Vault: One Year Anniversary!!



It’s been 1 Year since we’ve opened Sylum Vault!  Part of me has a hard time believing it’s been a Year!

To celebrate out 1st Anniversary we’re having a Giveaway!  Anyone who buys something from Sylum Vault on November 2nd (with extended time for variety of timezones) will get a free gift with purchase!

We’ve also discounted a few items by 50%!  This is a one time only Sale and Giveaway.

It’s gone by November 3rd.


Personal Post From The General



Normally I don’t do personal posts.  I tend to keep a more muted presence online with some mentions here or there.

Today I’m taking an exception.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  There’s pink everywhere! That includes my Etsy Shop: Sylum Vault.

I’m pretty sure most of you reading this know someone who’s battled Breast Cancer.  Or been touched by Cancer in some way.  I lost my stepmom 18 years ago to Cancer, to this day my dad still misses her.

One of my good friends through college fought Breast Cancer.  She survived – Thank God.  But her life was changed forever.

My co-worker’s mom recently went through treatment for Breast Cancer, and again – Thank God she survived.

An online friend who I’ve known for ten years just went through treatment for Breast Cancer, again with early detection it was treatable and now she’s cancer free.

Breast Cancer in the past decades has become more survivable due to the fight for awareness, and through this more money has gone to research and finding a cure.

So yes there is a lot of Pink out there, but it’s for a good reason.

And because of my own personal connections to friends who had fought and won, Sylum Vault has a Breast Cancer Awareness Collection.  There isn’t a lot I can do personally, but I can make jewelry and I can raise awareness.

So on that note:  During the Month of October 10% of all proceeds from Sylum Vault will be donated to  The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

So if you’re looking for anything Pink or want to show your support or give a gift … or needing something fun for Halloween – take a moment and browse my Etsy Shop.
