OpenSky! GoodNCrazy Opens a Store Front In August

The CountDown is ON!

Clock Top

See the cute little Counter on my sidebar? It’s counting down to August 10th.WHY?

Because starting in August I will begin running my own little GoodNCrazy Store Front! How dang cool is that? In fact I REALLY need some help here… what shall I call it?

  • GoodNCrazy Store (sheesh… boring)
  • GoodNCrazy Shop (ditto)
  • Ye Olde GoodNCrazye Shoppe (Juste kiddinge)
  • GoodNCrazy Bazaar (Or should I call it Bizarre??)
  • Chez GoodNCrazy(while I wear paisley)

Crap I’m in a hurry here. What do I call it??

OpenSky is an online ecommerce site perfect for bloggers to incorporate directly on their own sites. When I find a fabulous product (and I have several items I’m totally in love with and dying to share with you) I’ll simply beg OpenSky to create a relationship with the new product/brand. If they do, I get to list it in my shop. Making it easy for you to locate the same item.What better way to shop than to get a recommendation from a friend right?

Think fun and funky items that maybe don’t sell at giant retail outlets. Small companies making great products. I’m talking THE perfect gift ideas for your picky mother-in-law!

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not doing all of this for free. OpenSky is creating a business partnership with me. Here’s how it works: Pretty much they do all the work and I get to have all the fun! When an item is purchased from my shop directly, they split the difference with me. So yes, when I’m suggesting an item I’ve listed in my shop, I will receive compensation if the item is purchased.

Um. Isn’t that how a store works?? Yeah I know, just making sure you understand…

Here’s what I like the best.

First. OpenSky has been awesome to work with.
Second. They are serious about authenticity.
Third. This is in their Mission Statement, and I totally agree.


  • Create goodness for everyone that interacts with us.
  • Introduce only products that we love and believe are the best.
  • Work only with passionate people who share our vision.
  • Do well by doing good.

Amen huh?

Wait there’s a fourth reason… Their RETURN policy. Feel free to read all the details directly on their website. But the bottom line is a 365 day return policy. Think about that for a minute? A WHOLE year? And they will even pay for the shipping. Srsly. Can’t beat that with a stick.

Would you like to get involved? You can! Tweet with the #opensky community. Follow them on Facebook: The OpenSky Project. Or even sign up to become a shop owner yourself!

(And don’t forget to help me with my shop name… I promise I’ll help you someday!)

    How cool is that?!? I didn’t even know such things existed. Looking forward to shopping in your store — so don’t forget some toddler stuff!!! (and mommy stuff, of course)

    And I agree – what an amazing mission statement for a business model! I’d sign up with them too — you know, if I had a blog, could navigate a computer, had recommendations… you know – just the little stuff!

    One questions, can someone like me that isn’t very crafty sell stuff? Or is this to make your own bibs, diapers, jewelry type of thing? I have both a Mom type of a blog and a all about baby so this could be good.
