July 4th Deals & a Twit!
Hello- well this week is a short one, our studio will be closed from tomorrow, the 2nd to Tuesday the 7th, we are looking forward to the break & hoping that the rain holds off a little so we can at least enjoy some fireworks & maybe a little bbq-ing! All sorts of destinations for the ladies around these parts this weekend; Vermont, Maine, Arizona....we hope our customers are also able to get away & enjoy a bit of relaxation.
Above are some hoop deals for the long weekend! They are numbered so here are the details for each: one: cute pair of rose gold (very coppery tone) cut-out hoops, these are around 2" in diameter, we have 2 pairs for $30. Number two is a solid sterling silver pair of hoops in a great semi-ethnic shape, great buy for those who can't wear base metal, we have this one pair for $60. Number three is a sterling silver & 14k gold vermeil cut-out pair of hoops, these are also around 2", we have 2 pairs at the great price of $60. The last pair, number four, is a very light hammered pair of 14k cut-out hoops, so cute, these have been very popular & this one pair is just $20 (base metal). To purchase these hoops please email us at: email@example.com with your shipping address + ph nm, we will email or call you after the July 4th break for your credit card details & ship asap!
Happy birthday Susan! As you may remember from earlier posts, our resident cake-baker is Susan Volker, so it is a bit scary when her birthday rolls around as none of us feel we can match up to the treats she turns out for us....for her birthday yesterday Wendy saved the day with an enormous chocolate creation, though she would have us believe she baked it the cardboard box was a slight giveaway, it was of course delicious and caused an office wide food coma. Nice!
Let sleeping dogs lie...here are some sleepy chihuahua puppies! Rain put a slight damper on our Waggy Tail fundraiser this past Friday so these puppies decided to stay in their little bag & sleep the event away, very cute! Thanks so much to all who dropped by that evening & in the weekend, Waggy Tail is such a great organization & we were more than happy to raise some funds for them. Do let us know if you are part of a fundraising group as we are always open to potential donations for silent auctions & related events.
Well we have gone and joined Twitter! oh dear, a week ago we were fairly in the dark as to what this actually was but we decided if we can embrace a blog we can certainly embrace a tweet! It's actually a great little tool, we can get some super great one-off deals to you as quick as lightening & the best part is it's brief & straight to the point! If you are already a Twitter then do make sure you click to follow us as we tweet the news from here in the studio & our retail store, it's so simple to use & surprisingly satisfying though am not sure if this makes us all twits now?
Maybe some of you are brides to be or have family/friends getting married this summer? we just came across a fab Vintage Wedding blog called Vintageglam, (thanks Twitter!) it's so cute. There's great photos of vintage-styled weddings & a whole range of wedding preparation musts such as; jewelry, venues, dresses, photography, flowers...it's all there, certainly makes us want to waltz down an aisle in a flapper dress while our groom waits in a watch-chain & vest! Do check it out as there are some really interesting things on the blog that you would be hard-pressed to find yourself online!
Our last deal for the weekend is this amazing gold African-beaded necklace from our newest collection. Handmade with 22k gold vermeil African beads & chunky chain, the piece is a real statement, because it's gold you can pretty much wear it with anything! Necklace measures 28" & bottom round beads are around 1" in diameter, we have this ONE sample for $140.00, normally retails for $245! Please email our retail department to purchase, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope everyone has a wonderful July 4th break, we'll be in touch next week!
