Hey duders — guess what! If you spend $10 or more on any order in my Etsy shop you can get free shipping by entering “ISPENT10” at checkout. All one word, all caps.
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):
Yes! A feature about us on the Green Fashion Blog was published today! Mucho mucho thanks to Mike for his excellent questions.
…of fame in Portland, Maine. 🙂
Just a quick one, here, both Kate and I were featured at Forefront Fashion’s blog tonight. In case you didn’t know, they wander around Portland taking pictures of well-dressed Portlanders (of which there are many) and write wonderful things about them. They also feature artists, shops and others that make dressing one’s self in the morning that much easier. Guaranteed to help stick the Forest City to the fashion map which, like my closet, I can only imagine is strewn with expensive clothes that it got for a wicked steal.
