What I can get from Etsy Sellers to Prepare for Hurricane Earl

I live on Prince Edward Island and our weather is pretty predictable. Hot in the summer for a few weeks, August we have our annual Old Home Week then it turns cooler right after and we get ready for the winter. Winters can be long but not too bad... some years we get more snow than others.

But hurricanes do not come to our area very often. The last on was Juan about 5 years ago now they are talking about us getting Earl. So I was checking my list of supplies and I thought I wonder what I could get on Etsy if I was looking for things to help me through...so lets see what I found!

First off candles...

Smokeymountainscents have a great deal on their soya candles!




More beautiful candles from SummerWilson8:



Now we need something to hold the longer candles in...lets check out Bloomroompottery for gorgeous candle holders:


Now we need something for the children to do... Games!

NewEnglandQuilter has cute Memory Games:


Aracne For Kids has neat finger puppets:


and how about this neat wooden puzzle by Usnavyretiredvet:


We will need to keep warm if we are in an area that is colder....we will check out blankets...

Craftsbycarer has cute ones:


Arrivingangels has gorgeous soft ones too:


Lets have some snacks....

Nikid has delicious choclate:

Well, that is a start for Hurricane Earl...but there are many many more things on Etsy for you!

Stay safe and hope that Hurricane Earl passes you by!

I sympathize with what ya'll are going thru... usually it's us down here in Florida preparing for a storm. Just do everything that's advised, and remember - most of the time, the 'prediction' is worse than the 'reality'. Stay safe!!
