The rhythm of the needles is music for the hat knitter’s soul…

…and the pom pom on top is the big finish.

Knitters are starting to gear up for the fall and winter season! These handmade recycled fur beauties shipped off to L. in Connecticut on Thursday! Twenty hats. That’s a lotta music for the soul…

Behind-the-scenes at elle Vintage

I’m always reading articles about how to market your online shop. Along with the usual product and sales feature suggestions and guides, another common suggestion is to show a little behind-the-scenes imagery. The idea is to give our audience a break from the “buy this!” posts, by showing the day-to-day inner workings of our home businesses.

Well, I have always thought that this suggestion shouldn’t apply to me and elle Vintage, since, well, it’s hairy embarrassing!

But I’m just back from vacation in the beautiful nature of Northern Ontario, doing nothing but spending time with family and family that I haven’t seen in years — and enjoying meeting new family members. So the change of scenery has relaxed me to the point that the image of the elle Vintage behind-the-scenes is actually striking me as very funny today.

So here it is, a typical day here, in all its glory.

I know exactly where everything is.

Below is this same room… at this moment.

But not for long. I’m about to open up shop again to make the orders that came in while I was with the sun and the swimming and the lolling around, being waited on hand and foot…

I’m still here, mentally.

Customer Spotlight: THIS is how you rock it.

Alex M. in Palm Desert, California purchased my Ivory and Brown Fox Fur Pom Pom Italian Leather Key Chain Purse Charm in May, and sent me this lovely photo of it attached to her cute mini backpack. This is how its done!

Now there’s another on on the way to her. Because obviously she has more than one handbag. Right?
