OK, I’m going to try my hand at being a nice lady to my Etsy shop again. I fell in to a lull this summer when sales were slumping and the beach was getting warmer and warmer. But now that the Picnic busy-ness is over, I’m on top of my wholesale order (yet again) and the only real ‘extra’ project I have going on is knitting socks it seems like a pretty good time to start taking pictures again.
Non-sequitur: I am in need of someone with size 7 feet who would like to trade modeling socks for… a pair of hand knit socks. I’d need your toes for modeling by mid-September and then I’d have a pair of socks (in your choice of color and calf-length!) ready for you by the beginning of October.
Ok, but now to make sense of this post title: I experimented with making post earrings with bottle caps before Picnic — this is not something I would wear (I like little posts, big hoops, or super dangly ones) but I’ve noticed a lot of people walking around with the chunky, ‘clip-on’ style earrings so thought I’d give it a go. It did pretty well! I sold three pairs at Picnic which was half of my experiment stock. Here are two listings that will be music to your ears (and hair):
