I'm not gonna lie. I'm a bit of a craft hoarder. My craft stash rivals many well-appointed craft stores. So it goes without saying that I would be excited about Mindy's Minute Market, a deal of the day site devoted to great prices on craft finds. Mindy's Minute Market wanted you to be excited too, so they are giving away (edit: our winner has been selected - see below) a prize pack worth over $100 and filled with all kinds of delightful craft supplies!

I interviewed MMM to see why they wanted to give you some goodies:

How did Mindy's Minute Market happen?

Our online store started as a means of intervention. We love to craft...we hate to spend...so we would try to justify our purchases by buying BULK. Now we have too much NOT to share.

What makes Mindy's Minute Market more special than other daily deal shops?

We have a terrific site that offers a daily deal with an ongoing "store" that offers missed opportunities {who DOESN'T believe in second chances?}. We offer craft, decor, accessory and other fun purchases that we find at the cheapest possible price that yes, we've bought in bulk.

Mindy's Minute Market Other Items

Ooh, clever! You started a store to deal with your stashes... hmmm... sounds like a good solution for a stash the size of a small country. *cough cough*

Help us...or our husbands may leave us. ;)

So what are you giving away today?

mindy maes

This may feature items like fabric, ribbon, wood items, burlap items {ribbon or bags}, upholstery tacks, baker's twine, etc. [photo here includes the prize package, but does not show the 1 pound of designer fabric scraps that will also be included!]

    Wow, I love the idea and you never know what they will have! I almost need to do the same thing with all my craft supplies!

  • Chelsea said:

    I love the vintage-style metal open/close sign! I’m a sucker for signs and typography (my jr. high art teacher predicted I would develop fonts …) I kinda want to cover it in glitter and do something with the chain, though. :)

  • Katy Lamb said:

    Please enter me in Mindy’s Minute Market giveaway. I liked both the “Tying up Loose Ends” yarn for $4.00 and “Funky Ribbon Montage” for $3.25. They have a lot of good deals that I’ll be checking out.

  • peg said:

    i love the whole twine and scissors holder idea.

  • Garnet said:

    Those flower cabochons look like a great deal!

  • Kelly said:

    For two things that I really liked… well actually more then two but, well you all understand…. cabochons and the bathroom vinyl sign.

  • Julie said:

    Ribbon! Ribbon! Ribbon! I <3 ribbon!

  • Lora W. said:

    Wow, such great prices! I liked the candlesticks in 3 sizes. It’s a perfect grouping.

  • Stephanie Evans said:

    The string holder is a great idea.

  • shawn said:

    Love the different sized candle sticks – have a craft on my “list” that calls for three diff sizes, and haven’t been able to find them locally! thanks!

  • Melissa said:

    The flower cabochons are so cute. I could come up with a lot to do with them. Thanks

  • Katherine said:

    I like the 5 Nods for Knobs – I was thinking of making a jewelry hanger with some.

  • Aarika said:

    Gorgeous twine 4 for $4? Love it.

  • HeatherLeah said:

    Love the funky ribbons! I’m a sucker for anything funky or kitschy.

  • KathyH said:

    I love the Bling it Up! bracelets and the cabochons. Can never have enough jewelry making supplies!

  • Sheila said:

    OOOh! they have ric rac. I’ve been meaning to pick some up for a few project ideas.

    Wow! What a great website, didn’t even know about it. I am addicted to cabochons, so I know I’ll be getting some of those!!

  • Megan said:

    I like the knobs, too! I need some for towel hooks in my bathroom, don’t have enough room for a towel rack! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • buggalcrafts said:

    I love the twine dispenser! Sissors handy! It’d be nice however if they were “chained” to thetwine dispenser – as my sissors wander away from me! If I had a craft table – this would be one item that would be on it!

  • catherine said:

    The ribbon

  • Kristy said:

    I love it all, but the vinyl Bathroom Rules are really cute!

  • Suzanne said:

    What a great site . . . the cabochons, the rick rack, the baker’s twine, the knobs. Yep, I’ll be back there for sure!

  • Rachel said:

    I love those birds- they remind me of that super-funny episode of Portlandia where they “put a bird on it”- but I still love birds!

  • Cari said:

    Very cute. The site is easy enough to navigate and looks great. I love the quirkiness with some of their names (ie Boot Scootin’ Cutie).

  • melissamo1 said:

    What a fun site! That string looks great! It always amazes me how often I need string!

  • Tara said:

    My favorite item is the lace. So pretty- and so many things I could do with it!

  • Dahbou said:

    I love the Twine Stand. Not only is it a great idea to keep the twine and scissors together but it looks really nice. It would be so easy and quick to just grab it off a shelf and go. I love simple yet useful products like this!

  • Heather Johnson said:

    I love the push pop containers! I have never seen those before!!

  • Shannon said:

    I liked a lot of the items, but my favorites were the “for the love of birds”. What a cool website!

  • Kimberly said:

    Oh my gosh! I’ve only ever been able to find push pop containers in quantities of like 100 and they are sooo expensive!!! How exciting! I’m totally buying some.

    Oh, and I love the wooden candlesticks and the chevron pillows and the colorful cabochons in the “other items” section. :) Great site!

  • KT Cowden said:

    I love the big pack of cabochons!

  • Ann Winder said:

    I love creative people, because I’m not!!

  • Jamie said:

    Clearly I need to make some push pops ASAP.

  • Jen VG said:

    “Today’s Deal” today is the “push pops”… I never knew you could get something like that. They look so cool, and the goodies they show in them in the picture look amazing! I really need to think of something to make with those and think I have found a new craft supply site. Thanks!

  • Tracy Pulliam said:

    I joined Mindy’s Market via email. I like the little birds – first item on Other Items. Thanks.

    the pushups are so cute – I make dolls – what fun they would be!

  • mrs_helm said:

    Enter me!
    Mindy’s site is so cute. I actually like that there is a limited list of deals, unlike some craft sites that carry so many items you get overwhelmed looking through them! I especially like the little assortment of drawer-pull knobs, and I would like to make a peg rack with them, they are so cute. (But, Mindy, can you put a little more in the details on items…like measurements, etc?)

  • Shannon R said:

    Before I even realized this post was a giveaway, I’d clicked through and bought Today’s Deal and some twine from Other Items!

  • Heather dela Cruz said:

    What a great giveaway!!! I love today’s deal… the reusable push pops! Nice!! I wanna win =)

  • Kimberly Sterling said:

    What a great site! And a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!


  • Ren said:

    Do I really have to pick one thing I like???? Impossible! I love the little baggy thingeys, the sign, the candle holders. I don’t know what the little things are in the bottles, but I adore the colors! Guess I’m just a born packrat!

  • BethJ said:

    Well let’s see – Loved the birds, saw a ton of possibilities with the buckle ups, and the pops were cool too. Will now be watching this site, (uh, oh!)

  • Christine said:

    Thanks for bringing this site to my attention.
    I would choose the metal birds as my favorite.
    I always try to add a bird element to my arrangements
    and wreaths. They add an extra level of life and interest.

  • Amber said:

    The push pops seem really cool, but I would have liked to get in on the radical ribbon sale!

  • aimz said:

    I love the 3 candlesticks.

  • Gramodog said:

    I can always find uses for ribbon, so that set for $7.50 is mighty tempting. If I didn’t have an insane amount already…

  • Heather said:

    I love the funky ribbon montage and tying up loose ends! I’m a really big fan of using up all the little scrappy bits from other projects, so those seem like they would fit into my crafting.

  • Kathleen said:

    The giveaway basket sounds great….. I hope you pick up more fellow crafters to your site…great deals!!

  • Laura said:

    I love the featured owl charm! It would be so perfect to use in a bracelet for a friend whose sorority mascot is an owl! Perhaps I will have to do this for a Valentine’s Day gift. :)

    i think today’s deal, the 2 owl pendants, is awesome! and not a bad price for 2 pieces!

  • Tamarah said:

    I would love to win this, I thought the site was an awesome idea, but my favorite item was the chalkboard paint kit. It’s very hard for me to find the supplies for that around here.

  • Cindy said:

    What a great idea. I like the bathroom rules/get naked signs.

    Todays deal is the Roarin Wrap. While I am not a fan, there are some other great items and I love that you can buy smaller quantities (ie. the twine).

  • Annika said:

    I really like the cabochons. I have no idea what they are, but they look cool and they would be fun to use for embellishing decor around the house and especially for my little girl’s room.
