Happy Haven Pendants Review {& Giveaway!}



Becky is a 35 year old single mom with an MBA in marketing.  She had all intentions of going into the corporate world after finishing grad school, but she found another way to be successful and applied what she'd learned to her own business.  She opened up Happy Haven about a year ago as a way to deal with the death of her twin sister, Barbara. Becky tells me, "I needed an outlet for my creativity and something to keep me busy. It was supposed to be a part time distraction but has turned into a full time job."

Her shop has a full array of scrabble tile pendants, including party packs for kids' birthday favors and Becky's personal favorite, the One Pink Flower scrabble tile pendant.  In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time with her 8-year-old son.

Becky sent me the Custom Brag Photo Square Glass Pendant, using one of my favorite summer photos of Emmy at the beach.  The pendants all come with a silver ball chain.  I chose the 18" length.  There are also a variety of silver and gold and colored chains as well as ribbons and cords available in the shop.

I love the idea of handing them out as party favors at birthday parties.  This one will be gifted to her grandmother, who happened to be holding her while this photograph was taken.  I know she'll love it.  What grandparent wouldn't like a brag photo pendant?

Her items are very reasonably priced, starting at $5.50 and most are buy 2 get 1 free (excluding the photo pendants), so you can afford to stuff each stocking this Christmas!

BUY IT! The Penny-Pinching Mama readers will receive 10% off of your purchase, just mention this blog post in the message to seller (excluding s+h). 

WIN IT! One lucky reader will receive a scrabble tile or square glass pendant of your choice.  Custom orders and photo pendants not included.

  7. I would LOVE to have the Custom Brag pendant and I would like to put the pic of my boys on my header of my blog in the pendant and hang it from my mirror in my vehicle. (I would probably wear it from time to time as well, but this way it is always being shone and I can grab it and put it on whenever I want. :)
