2015 Holiday Shopping Guide for belly dancers

written by Andalee on November 26, 2015 in General with 2 comments

Last year, I posted the first Belly Dance at Any Size Holiday Shopping Guide and it was such a great success that I thought I would make another one this year (maybe it will be an annual thing!). This time I reached out to vendors personally to get coupon codes–and as a result it’s bigger than ever. I’m including the links and codes that I received along with some other ideas for great belly dance gifts (or stuff for ourselves). I’ve got my eye on a few things for sure (you can buy me stuff from my wish list anytime!)!

Amazon.com*

Amazon is one of my favorite places to shop for belly dance music and DVDs. Check out my aStore for a selection of my favorite products. Please note that I will receive a small percentage of sales if you purchase anything using the amazon links provided.

Other shops:

  • The Belly Dance Shop* – No holiday sales that I can find, but a great belly dance costume and accessories vendor based in NC!
  • Scheherezade Imports* – A localish to me business from Virginia. I don’t think they have any Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales either, but they are a solid business.
  • Shimmy Sista – No sales that I can find, but great for plus size practice and performance wear.
  • L. Rose Designs – No sales that I can find, but a fabulous vendor for custom made practice and performance wear.
  • Fairy Cove Silks – Beautiful silk veils and fan veils.
  • Belly Dancing Direct Belly Stockings* – Select items on sale at their ebay shop.

Happy shopping! Let me know what you end up buying. Also, let me know if I missed any great deals that can be added to the list.
