2015 Holiday Shopping Guide for belly dancers
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 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.
