|Intro and spinning sale
||[Apr. 10th, 2009|12:03 pm]
i am a merchant who has always carried various stuff for arts, crafts, and knitting.(ok, i admit it, i just hate buying at retail) i sell mostly at conventions and stuff, i bet i have met a couple of you at Arisia or ICON. i am based in Philadelphia, but travel a lot. |
yes, i sell online, but i cant maintain my own webpage (i have friends trying to fix that problem) my webpage is usually out of date.
i can keep my LJ up by myself.
i am trying to set up an Etsy store, but dont have one yet.
i love to knit, having learned as therapy for a head trauma that also left my right arm pretty well useless for a few years. i think i am a better knitting teacher because i had to work so hard to learn for myself. (at least thats my excuse for why all my students are better than i am now. i must be a GREAT teacher :-p )
i also spin. which i hadnt thought of as being very steam punk, but after seeing THIS incredibly steampunked spinning wheel made from a Babe's Fiber garden pvc base..... i knew i had to carry them. and i also knew i want to punk out one of my own wheels.
isn't that an incredible job? Krylon Fusion (for plastic) apparently works very well on the pvc of the Babe wheels... i wish i could take credit for it, but i have nothing to do with it.
Anyway, as stated i am putting my first order together for that brand, so if any of you have considered buying a Babe Spinning wheel (inexpensive and mud resistant) i am having a sale to get my initial order together....you can get all the sales details over on my LJ, but its mostly 25% off list price.
