A Little Treasure For Us All To Do

This morning I read through some of the recent "Featured Seller" articles. While reading chakrapennywhistle's interview I came across this little treasure.

If you love another shop, convo them and let them know. We are usually one person in our workshop, sewing room, or corner of the living room. We all belong to a giant community of like-minded people. I think that we tend to forget that the person behind that amazing shop is just like us.

This is something that I have done in the past but am now committing to do more often. I sometimes keep myself from doing this because I don't want to shop to think "if you like my shop so much why don't you just buy something?". But that's me playing devil's advocate and it's keeping me from encouraging others. I love it when someone compliments me on my products or shop. I love it when I'm informed when one of my items has been featured in a treasury or blog. Why not share the love?

Thanks to chakrapennywhistle for the encouragement to encourage. Btw: your shop is amazing! Your photos showcase your items beautifully.

A Section For Men At Lucky Zelda

My husband has been after me for months to get this section of Lucky Zelda up and running. Apparently theatres being dark & me outta work for a while is what is took to make it happen.

Just in time for Fathers' Day and graduations, "Mens' Aloha Wear" has been added to Lucky Zelda. This section will feature the your not-so-typical aloha shirts for men. I have altered a purchased shirt by applying polynesian printed cotton to the shirt fronts. My husband and his brothers LOVE these shirts as they are unique to both a normal shirt and an aloha shirt.

Swing by Lucky Zelda to take a look. And as always, let someone know!

Beautiful New Shop To Take Notice Of

I was just made aware of a new Etsy shop named Turlis Turnings. Everyone should check it out. It features hand turned and hand polished items such as pens & bottle stoppers. These items are GORGEOUS and are perfect for Fathers' Day, engagement party, wedding shower or wedding gifts.

Check out Turlis Turnings and buy handmade whenever possible!
