What a day! What an exhausting day! It was so great to get out and meet so many wonderful shoppers and other sellers.
Participating in these events is amazing, because it expands my universe and puts me in personal touch with the people who purchase my wares — I get to see the purchase-thrill — and it gives me the opportunity to network with others who create and sell. Good vibes!
One of the exciting conversations I had there, was with an eco-friendly fashion handbag seller who is interested in working with me in the fall, to pair my keychain purse charms with her handbags. I’m looking forward to that!
Now it’s summertime and I’m going to take some time to enjoy it. While I will still be working, I’ll be blogging sporadically until late summer, when I’ll pick it up again, as old man winter starts pushing his own agenda…
Terk is made from remarkably realistic silky faux fox fur, that looks, feels and moves like real fur.
I named her Terk because she reminds me of Terkina from Tarzan.
–Terk is on sale until June 12 @ www.ellevintage.com at 15% off. Just use the Coupon Code SHARETHELOVE.
I’ll be doing a live craft market this Sunday, June ll at the Parkdale Flea, 1266 Queen Street West in Toronto from 11am-6pm.
I haven’t done a lot of these shows, because my winter merchandise is most in demand for the winter markets, and when it’s winter, I’m so busy with my online orders, I don’t know which way is up or down, let alone have the time for the incredible amount of work they are to prepare for — and the day itself.
So I’ve decided to try the elusive summer market! I will be showcasing my faux fur only, featuring summer-friendly items such as pom pom earrings, keychain purse charms, scrunchies, and shoe poms for strappy sandals and flip flops.
These cute shoe poms are first on the assembly line of faux fur products that I’ll be focused on creating over the next four days. Watch for more things in the next few days.
My prices for the market will be reduced, as well. Since 90% of my online customers are from the US, the prices in my shop are in US dollars. But for this craft market, those prices will be in Canadian dollars. For example, these shoe poms are US$12.50 online, but they will be CDN$12.50 at the market on Sunday — that’s about a 35% discount 🙂
So maybe plan to come out to Parkdale on Sunday!
–Oh, and of course I’ll be selling my faux fur teddy bears too — I’m hoping to have time to make a couple of new ones before Sunday as well.
Yeah…I need a clone.
