Happy New Year … Just a Couple Months Late!

Happy New Year! Gotcha! I’m late. It seems every day I come up with a subject to add to my blog, but going full speed ahead, I don’t stop to write it down. (I truly *am* sorry – I’ll get that death by corset article up soon!) I’m just going to just do a quick little update right now to let you all know what’s going on.

The good news is that I’m feeling pretty healthy and only gained back 5 lbs after the holidays and that I’ve got lots of great plans for my shops this year, including the addition of a booth in a new, local antique mall! For now, the majority of things in my mall space are antiques. But I have some vintage jewelry there, and vintage sewing things, hats, purses … vintage accessories — and there’s much more to come.

I’m planning on making a theme for jewelry each month – both at the mall and on the website here. Right now, I’m featuring green jewelry for St. Patrick’s day. Around March 18th, I’ll change over to spring pastels. Watch my Facebook page to see when the themes change and what the new theme will be. (And, when you “Like” my page, be sure to also click on “get Notifications” so you are more likely to see when I post. Facebook only allows between 5% and 10% of my followers to see anything I post!)

Working on the mall booth has taken me off my “routine” plan for a few weeks, but we still have lots of wonderful things to add to the website. Just a couple weeks ago, I added this great Juliana bracelet with faux hematite navettes , sparkling crystal rhinestones, and gold filigree beads. Definitely droolworthy! And there’s more where that came from!

Around Thanksgiving last year, we finally got our antiques website – Craig Antiques – back up and running. It’s still a little sparse, but good things are worth waiting for. I’m really excited about some of the great things planned for the site. There is a blog with the antiques website where I get to share a little bit more information about our antiques. I hope you’ll can stop by and hopefully learn some interesting information about different antiques, like this one about Old Paris Porcelain.

And don’t forget to keep an eye on our Etsy shop because we’re constantly adding lots of fun vintage fashion. There’s a little peek of some of the things you can find there in the right sidebar.
