birds of a feather

Or perhaps that should be accessories of a fabric? New this holiday in the Primrose Design shop are matching sets of accessories—all from the same fabric and made with coordinating buttons, zippers, and webbing.

I made these at the request of a shop owner, but realized that it made perfect sense because customers often buy two items in the same fabric to give together as gifts. I just expanded the idea a bit to include four items—a mini wallet, zippered bag, tissue cozy, and key fob. This may be too matchy-matchy for some buyers, but, hopefully, will appeal to others. I've pretty much given up on trying to predict what will sell and what won't :)

There are five sets listed on my site at $27 per set (20% off the retail price of the items sold separately) and seven more will be at Green Being in Scranton in time for First Friday on December 3rd. If they all sell within the next week, I'll make more.

Also, a special deal on my site—Buy a vintage apron and receive a free package of my vintage-inspired recipe cards.

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. I've been working flat-out, completing custom and wholesale orders, and getting ready for the holidays. Business was very slow during the summer months so I'm thrilled that things have picked up. Even if I am crazy busy :)
