rhymes with twee selling in chicago & cleveland this weekend.

chicagoans, you can buy rhymes with twee stock at DEPART-ment this weekend. during set up last night, i got a gander at all the cool stuff. wow. depart-ment is really one of my favorite craft fairs and i'm so glad to sell at my second one this weekend. i'm really bummed i won't be around to buy really, but perhaps alison and i will make great time back and make the tail end of it. hm!

ohio-ans, you can buy rhymes with twee stock FROM ME at bazaar bizarre in cleveland tomorrow, december 1st! i am psyched. miss alison is picking me and my stuff up after work today and we drive. the fair is from 12-9 which is very very long, so if you are there, please come by and bring baked goods. alison is vegan. i am not. i also hope that the organizers saw my note about sitting us near one another so one of us can watch both tables while then other one uses the bathroom or browses.

last night i made a bunch of hoggle pins which i packaged up with the hoggle holiday postcards i had printed and will be selling them 6 for $5. otherwise, the postcards are $1 apiece, but after asking around, everyone said that $1 was a fair price for a really cute postcard. we'll see if customers think that as well.

my raise went into effect on this paycheck which is great because money is always tight around the holidays especially since i love buying gifts for those that i love. the xmas bonus check should be here in mid-december. additionally, the money made at these two craft fairs will help too. everyone cross your fingers that rwt does well.

i was all ready to make the xmas pickle ornaments again last night but my shrinkydinks kept getting screwed up. i never had this bad of a problem before, but this time they kept sticking to themselves or sticking to the paper EVERY SINGLE TIME. in the toaster oven, i put them on cut up brown grocery bags like they say to. i also tried putting them on cardboard, and on wax paper. NOTHING WORKED. halp! i just gave up after messing up maybe 6 different attempts and packed up for depart-ment, dropped that stuff up, came back and watched most of death proof with z, and then wandered off to pack stuff up for cleveland.

man, have fun! i totally would go up to cleveland to see you and everyone there! when i heard you were going to be there, i was all "i am totally going!" then i realized that it was the same day i have a show here, and then i thought, well my show ends at 5 and that one goes until 9, i could totally run up there! but then ian's mom is in town this weekend for belated thanksgiving. SIGH. i will wish you happy selling thoughts! and i think i am about to get another treasury so i will put you in it! that baby on your etsy site is too adorable.

hello!

Hi! I am a friend of sauceus and dearest_inez. Amber suggested I look you up because you are super awesome, and if Amber vouches for you, then it's true. Also, I'm sure I saw your wares for sale this weekend! I was at DEPART-ment but sadly could not afford to buy much; my husband and I just moved to Chicago 3 weeks ago and we're still getting on our feet here.

Will you be at the Renegade Holiday Craft Fair next weekend? If so, I'd love to come say hi in person!

Re: hello!

: ) Do you know other Amber also? I love those ladies.

I'm not sure which day we're going yet. I hear that quite often things sell out on the first day. If I go on Saturday it would be after 3:30 p.m. or so because I have to work. Which day were you going to go?

Re: hello!

honestly, i will probably go both days because some sellers are only selling one day or the other and because there is always so much to see. we'll see, but i bet i'll do both.

renegade holiday is definitely not AS popular as the fall renegade that gets everyone and their mom out. i know because i did renegade holiday last year and day two i made $17 if i remember correctly?

773 780-lubb is my number if you wanna try and locate me.

what 'hood are you in?!

Re: hello!

Amber Haynes. She was Melissa's roommate for a while and still lives in WV. I think she went to Renegade Brooklyn with Melissa this year.

Re: hello!

Ah, see I didn't know that. I'll figure out which day we're going closer to week's end. Or maybe it will depend on how badly I need a nap after work on Saturday. : ) (I work at 7:30 a.m.) I'll let you know because I'd love to meet up.

I'm in Roscoe Village. I really like our little neighborhood. Chicago is agreeing with me so far. I'm just a little scared of the winter.

Oh, mind if I add you, by the way?

Re: hello!

yep, i just added you.

just let me know when you are headed down there. it's really close to my house so i can head over there easily.

oh also, there is a bakery right around the corner from my house called sweet cakes that has great vegan baked goods. i am not vegan or even vegetarian, but their cupcakes are the best ever.

Re: hello!

I've heard of that bakery. They sell stuff at Pick Me Up Cafe, which is pretty near me. I didn't realize it was entirely vegan. Good to know!

Re: hello!

oh nonono! all their stuff is not vegan, but they have a really good selection. not sure what pick me up has of theirs. all of their mini cupcakes are vegan though, for sure. the larger ones are not.
