A quick update

I have been so terrible at updating. D: Okay so, in quick review:
Ivory Pintuck Taffeta Full Length Skirt
New Pintuck Taffeta Skirts! Well, okay, it was only one, it just sold, and I don’t have any more of the fabric. …yet. I’m planning on having several color options of this skirt, but so far the price of the fabric is a little out of my range at the moment. I want them to be as affordable as I can make them, and not have my price set over $200. It might be a couple of months before I have another one made.

Ama-Con 2013! Ama-Con takes place in Amarillo, Texas. For those who have no idea where that is, it’s the largest town in the panhandle of Texas. Yes, there are far more cows surrounding the area than there are people living in the city, but no, there are no cattle drives going on through the town. It definitely isn’t the old west. As for cool events going on within Amarillo, there really isn’t much.

This was Ama-Con’s second year, and it was another great one day event! People do drive in from all around the area, even some from Oklahoma, New Mexico, and I think a few from Kansas attended as well. Kansas is definitely closer to Amarillo than where I live in Austin. I had a lot of items that I haven’t vended with before, mostly of the Pre-Loved variety. I’ll be adding what I have left onto Kitty’s Closet Sale in the next few weeks. I’ll also soon have a page for the glass bottles with the labels I’ve created. They make for great displays for Hallowe’en!

Now what’s next? I’ll be restocking as much of my handmade items as I can, trying to balance item making with my day job. I also have been taking several custom orders, including a wedding dress for a friend! I’m really excited about creating this dress, and I’m also hoping I haven’t gotten myself in over my head with it! We’ll see, and I hope to post progress reports on the dress as I go along. As for the next event I’ll be vending at, Sherwood Celtic Festival will be taking place on September 21 & 22!

New Vines Underbusts

These gorgeous Silk Underbusts with black flocked vine pattern have been added tonight! For those of you who’ve been by at Sherwood Forest Faire, you’ve seen the Gold Vined Underbust Corset on display with the Sage Green Mini Cloak and Pixie Skirt. Now you can get one for yourself, too!

Getting ready for Sherwood

Another year has gone by, and we’re in full swing for this year’s Sherwood Forest Faire season. Our shoppe number has changed, but our location has not! Iris Adornments and Apothecary is now Shoppe 120, still between the Greenwoode Theatre and the Seven Sisters Stone Circle.

The new Men’s Short Capes will be showing up at the Faire in several different color combinations! Those that aren’t snatched away will make their way online afterwards. New skirts, new Hair Jewels, and hopefully some Tattered Cuffs will be showing up at faire as well!

Steph and I spent the past weekend getting our final cleanup of the shoppe done, and we can’t wait for opening day on Saturday!
