Front Street Art Festival

Aug 4, 2013 by

So yesterday was the first annual Front Street Art Festival in downtown Ballston Spa. Originally, myself and Gwen had opted not to attend, as we were unsure about the whole thing (there were a lot of questions). However, when friend and fellow dancer L came forward, asking if we wanted to join her since she had gotten space, that changed things. Gwen already had a trip planned for the weekend at this point, but I was free. So, after some discussion I decided I would go and be booth buddies with L, and Gwen helped me prep for it. After all, I wasn’t about to ask her to cancel her trip since originally we hadn’t planned on doing this particular craft fair. The fair itself was interesting, to say the least. Due to the...

Spring Boutique on the Lake

Apr 21, 2013 by

So the time came to do another craft show! Same place as the holiday one, but with twice as many vendors! We learned a lot from the first craft show, like not wanting to be up until 1am the night before crafting the last of your flowers. Yeah, that was definitely out. Instead, this time we were up until 1am finishing up other things. Gwen had things to finish pricing and tagging, while I was working on our displays. That was the other thing we learned, displays are a good thing. But they can be so expensive if you buy them from a store. So, with a little creative engineering, help from my dad (he worked the saw for me), craft foam, velour, self-adhesive felt, dowels, and dangly doo-dads; I made a set of...

Craft Show: Holiday Boutique on the Lake...

Nov 27, 2012 by

Well, it didn’t take very long before we found our very first craft show to attend! When it comes to keeping busy, Gwen and I seem to be the ultimate champions at it. After all the work we put into getting the Etsy Shop up and running, we had originally expected to take a small breather. Yeah, we should have known better. No sooner do we have the shop up, we make our first sale! Definitely extremely exciting, because being the realist I am sometimes, I had not expected a sale on the first day. I figured it would take some serious marketing to get to that point. Gwen on the other hand not only expected it, but has a dream that we will sell out of flowers before the holidays. Now, I’m inclined...

Welcome to our Etsy!

Nov 26, 2012 by

It’s been a long road as we dreamed up this crazy idea back in January of 2012, but it has finally happened. We finally did it. Products have been finished, photographs have been taken, and we are officially… OPEN FOR BUSINESS! That’s right, we have officially opened our shop on Etsy this Cyber Monday, and we’re super excited to share it with you! We’re starting off with just Kanzashi flowers, but we’re working steadily on more products to offer you. So definitely give us a bookmark and keep an eye out, because it’s going to be so amazing you won’t be able to absorb it all in one sitting! Tell your friends, tell your family, heck, tell your cat (like he’d listen anyway though), Dancer’s Dream Boutique is ready to get rockin’ n’ rollin’!...

About our Petal Skirts

Nov 18, 2012 by

Our petal skirts are free-flowing and easy to wear. Coming in a bright range of gorgeous colors, they can be worn over a full skirt, or just a pair of really awesome pants. They’re made from beautiful chiffons that are soft to the touch and float as you spin. With finished edges done on a serger, these skirts are bound to last for a long time. The waistband is made of simple cotton, and secures with elastic. Since it has a waistband, should the elastic ever become brittle and break from age, or if you ever need to change the elastic to fit a different size, you have that option; making these skirts extremely versatile. The skirts are composed of an average 13 petals, but more or less can be used depending on the...
