Sneak Preview! One Stop Holiday Shop...

Nov 21, 2014 by

As you are aware if you follow us on Facebook, we have been ultra-busy crafting in preparation for our final craft fair of the 2014 season; the 2nd Annual One Stop Holiday Shop in Saratoga Springs, NY. Last year we had only just broken into eggshell items, this year we’ve gone above and beyond that as we’ve gotten into beaded jewelry and hand-dyed silks! Since we’re so excited to share, here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come! 😉 Of course, you can see more on the Facebook page, so if you’re curious definitely go take a peak. Crystal Cluster Earrings are something we’ve always admired for their shiny beauty, and are now capable of crafting. These earrings are created using Czech glass crystals clustered together on a few links of chain to create...

But Why is it So Expensive?

May 6, 2014 by

When we go to the mall, we’re often prone to do a little price-shopping. Why buy a shirt at the Bon-Ton, when you can get something that looks almost exactly the same for half the price at Rue 21? This is natural for us to do. We clip coupons, shop around, and question our needs vs our wants to save every penny we can; mostly so we can afford gas. It comes as no surprise then that when we get customers at craft fairs, we have people who are a bit put-off by the price of goods. This is especially true if it’s more of a vendor fair, and we’re not only having our prices compared to similar crafters, but to direct-sale companies like Avon and Silpada that have the advantage of mass-produced items...

Craft Fairs: Behind the Scenes

Oct 6, 2013 by

So I’m sure many of you reading this have gone to a craft fair or two in your days. Perhaps a few of you have attended one as a vendor selling your carefully crafted wares, hoping to turn a profit. If that’s the case, then you’ll probably already know all about what I’m about to talk about. Craft fairs are hard work. Not just because you have to make the product (do not confuse us with consultants please), but because you have to prepare for the craft fair. Some of you are probably saying “Well, duh, making the product IS preparing for the craft fair.” Hahahaha, I wish that were all of it! When we get ready for a craft fair, the first thing we have to ask ourselves is “Can we feasibly make...

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...

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...
