I wasn’t waiting for the treasury on Etsy to open up or anything, but earlier today, someone posted an announcement on Twitter that it was opening up soon.   I decided to try and snag one, but I apparently missed it by just a minute or two. 

Well, fine.  I’ll put together my own collection of favorites!  I’m in a vintagey-steampunky-military-ish mood, and these items have all caught my eye in the last day or two (actually, I’ve been coveting a couple of them for a while now).  They are full of wonderful details and embellishments, from antique lace appliques and faux fur hems to metallic thread stitching and exposed seams.  With innovative construction and interesting lines, each of these handcrafted beauties would be a terrific addition to a seriously cool wardrobe.

The last day to order for the holidays from my Etsy shop will be December 20th!  You’ll still be able to order after that, of course, but I might not be able to get your purchase out to you before I leave for Kansas on the 23rd.   Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns about your order! 

Happy shopping!

With metals and commodities prices down quite a bit this last week, I felt the need to splurge on some supplies.  I’ve got a small handful of events coming up, plus we’re right at the start of the holiday shopping season.  I’ve been able to get myself a little better organized than I was at this time last year, so I’m more prepared. 

My material arrived today, and I’m spending a nice evening working on the assembly line with a Halloween-appropriate movie (28 Days Later) on in the background.  Watch for some new designs for the holidays to appear in my shop soon!

Some Upcoming Events:

Birthday Sale – 6 November 2008

RFB&D Holiday Craft Sale – 14 November 2008

Well, the winter holidays are coming, like it or not! I’m going to go shopping today and stock up on some sparkly vintage glass beads to make a few festive items for the shop. It’s never too early to start figuring out what to wear to all those holiday parties!

Something else that is on its way is my birthday, and to celebrate, I’m having a sale! I’ll be offering 20% off some ready-to-ship items. The sale will be in early November, after the presidential election. I figure it will be an ideal time for either celebratory shopping or consolation shopping, depending on your political persuasion. Either way, it will be fun, so check in in the near future for more details!
