Moon Voyage in Wicker Park, Chicago

Moon Voyage Store Spring 2013 

Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts - 

It's so exciting when an indie shop owner contacts us.  When Susie Lee, one of the co-owners of Moon Voyage contacted us, we were thrilled to know that we would be one of their first products in a new line of baby gifts for their uber-chic boutique in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.  How fun that our modest teething rattles would travel from our hands, part way across the country, to be found in the bright lights of the big city.

You can visit Moon Voyage in Chicago at 
Kitty-corner to Big Star
Mon-Sat 11-7
Sun 12-6
or online at Moon Voyage

Please tell them that you read about their boutique on Earnest Efforts blog :-)

Take care, be good & kind, and do your darnedest to LAUGH,
Ellie Efforts

Show Us What You've Got

Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts -

I had a fun idea pop into my head this morning.  It's not that often that we get to see our work after it goes home with you.  We often tell folks that a little bit of us travels with everything we create, so it's nice to know where we're going.  Now we'd like to see where we've gone.

Do you have one of our creations?  We would LOVE to see 'what you've got' that was made by Earnest Efforts over the course of the last 30 years!  Do you wear it?  Does it hold something dear to your heart?  Is it riddled with teething marks?  Do you have a story about it?

Please send us a pic and a story and we will enter your name in a drawing to win a $20 gift certificate in our Etsy shop or our booth at the Eugene Saturday Market or Coos Bay Farmer's Market.

Here's how:
Between today and 31 May 2015 'Like' us on Facebook (if you haven't already).  Then share your entry (limit 2 entries per person) on our Facebook page at:

We will choose a winner at random (by the hand of my Mom) on 5 June 2015 and we will announce the winner on our FB page that evening.

Hurrah!!!  Can't hardly wait to see...

Take care, be good & kind and do your darnedest to laugh,
Ellie, Earnie & Myrtle Efforts
