New Shipping Rates, Updated FAQ:
By now, most of you have noticed that the USPS rates have increased as of today, 5-12-08. Some of my shipping rates have changed a little, others have actually lowered for the first item, and sadly, others have increased a bit more noticeably. I continue to hope that my prices for shipping remain low and competitive, and to further explain my shipping fees and policies, I have updated my About Me page on eBay to feature a more explanatory FAQ.
If you have a question that's not featured in that FAQ, and think it should be, please feel free to post here or privately with your suggestions on anything I may have missed.
Belled Anklets have been appearing in my Etsy shop lately, attracting both visual and audible attention. These little pieces of wearable art are a great fashion statement, wonderful audible accents for bellydancers and morris dancers alike, and also work as a low-tech lo-jack! (But you might not want to wear these while at study hall or in a library...)
For the discerning rogue, I have also started a line of hat bands. Since each one is custom-made, all interested shoppers should measure the circumerence of their cap for a proper fit. These pieces are easily pinned into place if you don't have your hat pinned up on one side, and can be fitted with charms to match your personality.
Summer is approaching quickly, and faire season is winding up! As a little "thank you" to my many repeat customers, beginning this week I will be including 10% off coupons with your second visit to my Etsy shop or eBay listings (not second or more item of the first visit). I also plan on continuing the contests here, and would love to be able to post shots of my clients wearing their "sunday best" with a piece I've made for them. So please, if you have any testimonials or pictures of yourself in garb or costume wearing one of my pieces of jewelry, send 'em in (and please keep it PG, people!).
Where will I be next?
I am planning on merchanting at East Kingdom War Camp for the first time. Further information about the event (when, where, etc) can be found at:
For those new to the event, this site features merchants in a shaded grove area, as well as many participatory activities, and camping. There will be plenty to observe, as well, including archery, fencing, fighting, and a royal court at the end of the day, and swimming in the pool on site during daylight hours (no lifeguard on duty, byo swimsuit!).
PLEASE NOTE: I WILL BE AWAY FOR THE DURATION OF THE SECOND WEEK OF PENNSIC IN AUGUST, DATES TO BE POSTED IN THE NEAR FUTURE....
Have a wonderful summer season, everyone, and I hope to hear from you soon!
