The Turning Point

And now for something completely different....

Every so often, I enjoy plugging other Etsy artisans' work. That is, I can't tell you how much in particular I love the earring stands made by Ed Roberts, artist and owner of The Turning Point.

Each piece he makes includes a lovely piece of turned wood, highly polished, not only gorgeous, but functional as well. I use his earring stands for my shop when I am on the road for shows, and have at least one for my own use too. Presently, I'm considering buying one as a birthday gift for someone dear to me, and although it's too late for Valentine's Day as a gift at this point - it's not too late to pick one up as a Mother's Day gift, if you're looking to beat the crowds, and want something small and easy to hide.

Ed is a very friendly artisan, and extremely helpful - and his items ship *fast*!

So... Go! Take a look!

Before anything, I want to thank everyone who stopped by my table, whether to schmooze or shop, or make sure I was eating/drinking/stretching periodically. It was a long day, and I don't think I did too bad. Personally, I believe if I am going to return to Birka next year, I will need to offer different items to be more successful, and I hope time is eventually granted for me to add some new things to my inventory.

In the meantime.... in time for Valentine's Day, I am running a SALE.
(Two, actually!)

Once again, Free Shipping for First Class Mail to *anywhere* is being offered at my shop on Etsy. from now until February 14th, 2009.

Part 2 of this sale begins on 2-15-09. While free shipping won't be offered after the 14th, I *am* going to reduce the prices on black, red, and otherwise goth-themed items. Keep an eye on my SALE tab in my Etsy shop if you miss out on the first part of the sale. :)

Thanks again, and have a wonderful month!
