Etsy has given NightBlooming the amazing opportunity to participate in Fund, a new and exciting crowd-funding way to give your customers new products, while making it possible for us to take the store to a higher level than ever before.
While there is a lot of information here, please head over to the actual Etsy Fund Campaign, Selkie Herbal Detangler: Filling a sea of bottles. We only have thirty days to make this happen, and early backers to get the campaign going are much appreciated!
Important Note for International Customers: I am so, so sorry that this isn't open to my beloved international customers :( It isn't an option I had. Etsy Fund currently doesn't support international shipping or purchasing, though it will eventually. If you would like to participate in Fund, all I can recommend is that you ask a friend in the US to donate on your behalf and ship the product to you. I cannot accept payments for Selkie towards the campaign directly, as then it doesn't count as contributing towards the campaign goal.
How can I help?
Please help by spreading the word. Getting enough backers is critical to our Fund campaign. Blog, Tweet, post to forums, and email your long-haired friends. The more backers Selkie has, the more of a chance this unique opportunity has of succeeding.
Please note that all the options for Selkie on the Fund campaign include shipping within the US :)

Selkies are mythological creatures in Scottish, Irish, and Faroese folklore. The live in the ocean as seals, but when they come ashore, can shed their seal skins and walk about in human form. Stories concerning selkies are generally romantic tragedies. Sometimes the human will not know that their lover is a selkie, and wakes to find them gone. In other stories the human will hide the selkie's skin, thus preventing the selkie from returning to its seal form. Selkies, male and female, are sometimes seen in human form upon shoreline rocks, combing their wave-tossed hair.
