2016 Holiday Shopping Guide for belly dancers

written by Andalee on November 24, 2016 in General and Plus size belly dancers with no comments

It’s time for the annual Belly Dance at Any Size Holiday Shopping Guide! Like last year, I reached out to vendors personally to get coupon codes–these are vendors that I love to shop from, so hopefully you will too. The vendors who replied to me with their sales are featured with pictures and coupon codes (other vendors are also included, but they are down at the bottom). I hope you’ll want to support these awesome businesses! Happy shopping!
