Happy holidays and some shop news...

 My supply shop has very limited stock right now but I will be opening up with all the listings and new things on Jan. 1.  Jewelry shop is closed until Jan.2 as well.  

I will likely be listing some things in my facebook group in the next few days, with paypal payments (or Etsy reserves payable after the 1st if preferred) for established customers:

Half off Sale!

 Do people still look at blogs?  Do people still blog?  

I put lots of stuff on 50% off in my jewelry shop.  

Most of it has been listed for at least a year, and in some cases, 5 years.  If they don't sell at 50% off, it might be time to remove and remake.  

I don't like having more than about 100 items in my jewelry shop, and right now there are 246 items.  I feel like I sell more when I have less to browse through, and I really don't know if it's actually true but having so much keeps me from making and listing new things.  

One way or another, I am going to make some space in the shop for new things.  

Go take a look.  If there's something you've had your eye on and it isn't on sale, please don't hesitate to ask me if I can take half off; if it's too new or there's some other reason I can't reduce it that low, I can likely do something for you.

30% off in both shops...

I'm having a big clearance sale in the jewelry shop and the supply shop.  There are 115 items on sale in almost every category--go see!  Sale runs through July 21. All of the items I put on sale have been listed at least a year.  If you see anything that you've been looking at forever and it's not already on sale, please inquire and I'll see if I can include it in the sale.  I'd really like to make some room for new items that are coming up.

I've got some new things listed in the jewelry shop...

Some vintage Marvella pearls with layered ox caps...

I think this is the last pair of these brass connectors that I've been using forever.  Kind of sad to see them go.  Maybe I have some more somewhere.

I am having listing issues now in the supply shop so I can't get these up immediately but should be able to tonight:

A macrame silk cord connector and 2 bead pairs destash strands...

I have a couple other things ready to list in the supply shop but the photos need a bit of touching up. Hopefully I will be able to list a lot of stuff this weekend.  Go see!

Inventory, New BOGO Sale Section, Oldies

Kitties shown, 6 of 7 and 7 of 7: Robin and Huck
I usually don't get obsessed with organizing my supplies and studio until I at least get the slightest whiff of Spring.  I have been so unorganized this season though, that it's unavoidable.  I have a lot to do.  Last night I started it off with inventory in my supply shop.  As we watched the debate, I went through every single item against its Etsy listing.  In the photo above, the big red tin and clear boxes atop and the barely-visible crate below house everything I have listed in the shop.  It feels so expansive and I can never believe it's all contained so easily. 

Doing inventory, I normally find a few discrepancies even though I feel like I am soooo careful.  Luckily it's usually the case that I find some items present that aren't listed vs the reverse.  That's what happened last night.  I found some macrame connectors:

And a few other things...

I'm having a bit of trouble linking the photos, so if you click on them and they don't go to the correct page in the shop, everything that is old that is new is listed within the first page of the shop.

My friend Kim and I from Fall Hill Bead & Gem have been meeting a couple times a month at my house to put together destash lots and work on our shops, and last week I brought down just one basket filled with things to deconstruct and somehow now I am just swimming in overwhelm but I think it's helping me face the organization task ahead of me.  I have so much to list and I really need to make some space in the shop.  So....

I created a new sale section called "2 for 1 sale items." There are 12 things in it right now and I will likely be adding things as stuff sells.  Right now the regular destash strand listing is included, but only for a week or so. 

Also included: 

Plus some vintage plastic and gemstone.  Go see!
