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!
All these bears were scooped up this past week, making their way to New York, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Arizona:
It was a busy week, building my pom pom inventory back up from my May sale–and I took some zen time to work in the garden. But I did manage to make a couple of new things!
Both of these items are on sale — Click on any photo to go directly to that listing at elle Vintage on Etsy..
The circle garden is pom pom-inspired!
It used to look like this…

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