Yes! We are, in fact, an affiliate. That means that when you click on an item or a link from my site and make a purchase, it's possible that Poplin will receive a commission on your purchase, under two conditions:

  1. You click on a link to a retailer anywhere on the Poplin site.
  2. You make your purchase in the same session (your session ends when you close your browser window.)

Why would you do this?

Well, my hope is that you will see the value in my recommendations and want to support Poplin with no added cost to you. Poplin has also negotiated discounts for readers with some local retailers. 

Please know that I only recommend retailers that I REALLY love and that not all retailers provide commissions. My recommendations are driven by my love of the products and I do not discriminate against companies that do not provide commissions.

Questions? Please reach out!
