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):
I have size 7 feet and I adore socks, but I’m also in West Virginia and you appear to be in Maine so that might be problematic.
I’m with you on not being sure about those as earrings (although they are a really cool idea and I like the images in them), but I do think they would be really cool as a button/pin or as a bracelet – think along the lines of this one, if the link still works.
Aww shucks! If I’m ever in WV I’ll bring my socks with me! 😉 Yep — I was surprised they did so well at the Picnic craft fair.
Good luck with them!
I don’t know if you’re the person to ask this, but I have two gorgeous gorgeous button up silk shirts – one gem purple and the other red. The only downside is that they don’t suit me at all – neither in terms of style or cut. Wondering if you have any ideas for things to do with them? My style is most strongly inspired by vintage pin up girls (smooth, classy, and hot) and punk.
