New this Week! June 21

So many bears flew off elle’s shelves in the past week and I’ve been busy making new bears to restock those shelves!

I finished and listed Ava [down below] on Saturday and she sold in 45 minutes — It’s been quite the crazy teddy bear picnic this week at elle Vintage!

Peanut and Ally are hot off the press and available now:

All these bears were scooped up this past week, making their way to New York, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Arizona:

10,000 pom poms?

This is the first vintage fur pom pom I ever made. 

IMG_7367

My actual brainstorm was to make “hair poms.” [Maybe i should have been brainstorming the location of my hairbrush ?]

I listed a few of these recycled fur pom poms, and soon I had customers buying them in large quantities. I wondered why on earth anyone would order so many hair poms at once. Of course I found out that they weren’t buying them to wear in their hair — they were hat knitters who needed them to make their knit hats pOp!

I started getting a lot of requests for faux fur hat poms too, so I sourced some luxury faux furs, made some, and added them to my shop too.

In the past three years, I think I must have made more than 10,000 pom poms.

Last week, 100 of these mini mink shoe poms made their way to New York.

–And I just finished this faux fur 105-pom order today; on its way to Michigan.

As long as knitters are busy knitting, I’ll be busy making poms for them!
