Too Many Treats
I got too many treats today, not only did I receive many lovely goodies but I got to chat with four of my designers in person, and that is always fun. First up, Mollie Dash brought more bracelets and also a few keychains in a similar style that I convinced her to do...okay it wasn't hard to convince her! I shot a picture, see below. Again, they are mixed vintage chains plus a little add-on from her stash of Cool Bits of Things That Might Become Jewelry Someday.
Next, Judith of Analogous brought a few more anatomical heart necklaces - we got some nice blog press this week and we are already sold out of the pieces! We do have a tiny version of the heart necklace, and matching earrings, these are at the store, along with other pendants and lockets. (Speaking of lockets, Greenjeans is doing a locket show that I need to catch tomorrow, I love art jewelry).
And then David of the Bubble Roome stopped by with his Tangerine and Lavender soaps, and the shop smells awesome as usual now. And *then* our newest designer came by - Jane D'Arensbourg makes jewelry from borosilicate, aka Pyrex glass. They look delicate but are strong! She says people have slept in her link necklaces. We've got rings and earrings, we'll get that up on the website soon. As a treat, in-store customers can check out the bowl of charms at a very insta-purchase price - these are one to three glass rings on a colored thread, which can be used as a necklace, moved to a different chain, whatever.
The mailman brought me a new batch of hats by Giant Dwarf. We are lucky to get any at all, Sue has been so busy this year selling them all over the place! The Flame Cloche is made from recycled sweaters, with wool felt, vintage silk ribbon, bits of lace and French glass button embellishment, they are all one of a kind and very special.
What else - the dog and cat pillows by Aaron Stewart are here! They are clustered in the front window...little kids are already running up and grabbing for them as they pass by outside. Up in the webshop very soon.
Finally, we are restocked on Kbox, the modular jewelry box system. Our favorite combo is the magenta sculpted pads with the black long box, it will make your sterling silver jewelry look great. We hide a bit of anti-tarnish paper under the pad, put the lid on and you are good to go.
