more crafting and Dickens Fair info!


I have crafted up a few more items for my sale.  Remember when I made a pin cushion in a milkglass pedestal and said I would hunt for more to make pincushions for my sale?  Guess what I found, all at one thrift store…


And now they look like this.


Two linen ones and one vintage/modern.  Love them. 

Oh, yeah, I finally received my vendor information for the Dickens Fair.  There were some flyers in the packet for me to hand out so I am giving y’all the info virtually.  By the way, y’all is such a convenient contraction, everyone should use it.


The 25th Annual Dickens Fair

Over 90 craft vendors and children caroling!

coordinated by Lake Stevens School District

Saturday December 3, 2011

10am to 4pm

Held at Cavelero Mid High

8820 24th ST SE

Everett WA 98205

Admission Fee: One canned food item or monetary donation for the Lake Stevens Food Bank.

Vendors and staff are supposed to dress in Dickens era clothing, which I haven’t figured out yet what I am doing!  Ahh!  I will be at booth 39 along the East wall in the main room with the stage. 

I am so excited!  This week I have Wednesday and Friday off and will be crafting like a mad woman to get some more things ready.  My booth will be called “sew vintage” since many of my items are vintage finds combined somehow with fabric creations.  I will be selling DSLR camera strap covers, zippered pouches, teacup and other pin cushions, vintage pillowcase totes, burlap and vintage linen pillow covers and various vintage items that I have upcycled. 

I have some vintage items that I have not modified at all which I don’t think are allowed in the sale and those will end up in my Etsy shop afterward, along with any items that don’t sell at the Dickens Fair, so I’ll keep you posted on that.

It should be a fun way to jumpstart your Christmas shopping, so stop by Starbucks with a couple girlfriends and come check it out!
