It's giveaway time!!!

I'm really excited about my new DIY Craft Kits and I would love to get your help with getting wider distribution and sales! I need your thoughts and suggestions on which stores in your area might be a good fit for me to contact about carrying my kits.

As a thank you for your ideas, I'll draw the names of 2 lucky winners and each winner will receive:
1) Couch Potato Lavender DIY Eye Pillow Kit - These feature exclusive Scarlet Fig designed fabric
1) Wing Through Customs Passport Cover DIY Kit - These feature Anna Maria Horner designed fabric and a hand stamped passport label with my design

Here's what I think in terms of what kinds of stores I should target, but I'm anxious to hear what you think...
-Independent home goods / home accessories boutiques. They probably carry indie designers.
-Small fabric or crafting stores.
-Online fabric/supplies stores might also be a good fit.
