So since I’m getting NOTHING done at night when the babes are sleeping, I decided to just bring all my sewing things to the shop and set up for the summer. There are always a million projects i’m cooking up in my head but it seems like once the clock strikes 9pm and the kids are to bed I’m just too exhausted to do anything besides watch crappy television or just go to bed.
The former site of our Holiday “Land of Little Things” has become our little craft Pop-up! Last Saturday we had myself as well as some adorable neighbors (Tessa and Delphine both 13 yrs old) stitching away. In between helping customers on what turned out to be a crazy-busy day in the shop, I was still able to get the first stage of some curtain embellishing done!! Arthur stopped in for awhile and even got to make a skirt for Beatrice.
So stop by at any point this summer and you might find a work in progress (or just use the sewing machine at your convenience if you’d like!)
As far as the Land of Little Things: it will certainly be back this October!!!
We had such a great time last weekend with Twitch & Whiskers and Folk Couture!
These two ladies drove to Hoboken from Connecticut with their awesome goodies in tow…and boy were we excited!
Take a look at the Twitch and Whiskers blog for the full low-down!!!
On Sunday I and one of my besties, Miss Gail, nipped across two rivers to check out the happenings at Brooklyn Flea at their winter location in the old Williamsburg Bank. We were taken aback when entering the gorgeous space. This was truly one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve been in in so long! Vintage was mostly the thing to find. And of vintage mostly small things like clothing, accessories, jewelry, and collectibles. There was a little furniture but not a ton. It was super easy to park so going on a cold rainy day was a cinch. I’m planning on going in a few weeks when i have a little more time to browse the vintage accessories. There’s a pair of kelly green glasses i can’t get out of my head!!
Our trip in was worth it to simply see the old bank. The icing on the cake was to find two great vendors who we are already arranging in store events with! One handmade clothing and one skin products. We will definitely keep you posted about both of these exciting finds!
