#TreatYourself - special offers that caught my eye

Skull Art by The Print Cave 
Welcome to October's Treat Yourself post! I have found another five special offers and discounts to hopefully help your cash stretch out to the end of this long month. Please note that all links in this post are affiliate links so if you choose to click through and make a purchase, I would receive a small commission at no extra cost to yourself.

While I was searching out fabulous Halloween items to feature on Artisan Rainbow this month I spotted a great deal on unusual art prints at The Print Cave. They are offering a Buy-Two-Get-One-Free on all their dictionary prints - simply add two to your basket and write a Note To Seller with your third choice as you complete checkout. These Skull prints make atmospheric Halloween decor and if you get your order in now (for the UK at least) your prints should just arrive in time for your spooky party!

With key children's events happening this month including, of course, Half Term Holidays, online bookshop Wordery have a special promotion on their kids' books range. Buy one children's book and use the checkout code HALFTERM to save 10% off all other children's books bought in the same order at Wordery.com. The 10% discount is applied to the second book and any subsequent product, in order of decreasing value. Only applicable to UK orders and on books from the children's category. Offer lasts until midnight on the 29th of October and you'll get Free Delivery too!

I was chatting on Twitter recently about the benefits of Vitamix blenders. I've not tried one myself, but am considering the investment and was encouraged by very enthusiastic reports from a couple of folks on #elevenseshour. If a Vitamix is on your Christmas list, pop over to Planet Organic before the end of October - they've got discounts of £100-£130 off three models. A massive saving, plus you'll get free delivery too. The discount will be applied automatically as you go through the checkout so there's no code to remember. Planet Organic have a site-wide sale on at the moment too with hundreds of discounts on all kinds of healthy and less-healthy foodstuffs. Have a browse around - there's chocolate!

One of my favourite Etsy sellers, Manchester designer Gail Myerscough, has a 10% discount across most of her shop for the entire of October. I love her retro designed fabrics and their bold colours. I already featured her 60s Girl Linen Cushion on Artisan Rainbow and have chosen this cool Atomic Kitten one to illustrate this post. Gail also offers items such as lampshades and coasters, notebooks, mugs and greetings cards, most of which which are included in the October sale. The discount is already applied by Etsy so you don't need to enter a checkout code.

Finally, for budding storytellers of any age, I spotted that English Heritage have a 25% discount on their trio of fairytale hand puppets - a Princess, a Knight and a Dragon. Each of the three is now reduced to £15 from £20 while stocks last. The puppets are recommended for children over 36 months old and a contribution from each purchase helps the organisation to secure our spectacular and unique heritage for future generations to enjoy.
