HappyDashery and General Store Holiday Sale

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

And how was your Thanksgiving? Mine was full of family, food (lots and lots of food), old friends, kids (always), and not a lot of sleep. Oh well. It was tasty anyway.

And then just like that, we ushered in the holiday season. Thanksgiving and fall decor is tucked away and the house is well on its way to full-on Christmas. Love it.

You are in the mood for it, right? You’re with me? I hope so, but if not, please listen to this. This could not fail to convert you to the holiday spirit.

Listen to BandAid here.

Right? Did it work? I knew it! You’re welcome.

I’ve been channeling all this holiday spirit into updating the shops and prepping items for Cyber Monday and the following hectic shopping days. I’ve decided to offer free shopping on everything in The General Store. That’s free. Shipping. On. Everything.

And over at Happydashery, you’ll find lots of new items, lots of good prices, and free shipping on all books and holiday items! Hopefully that makes holiday shopping a little easier for you. I’m no big-box store, but I’m doing my part.

So happy holiday season to everyone! Hopefully I’ll be back soon with more from home, thrifting, kids, crafting, life, and stuff.

Happydashery at Picnic

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

I’m so pleased to share that my vintage shop, HappyDashery, will again be a part of the Picnic Music and Arts Festival.

This will be the first ever Christmas Fair version of the fest which is that much more exciting for me since I’m crazy for the holidays.

Here are the deets:

Rumor has it there were double the usual amount of applicants so I’m doubly honored to be picked. The full roster hasn’t been posted but check their site again soon to see who else will be there. Lots of excellent local talent for sure.

Picnic: Music & Arts Festival and Me

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Once upon a time, there was a brand-spankin’ new festival planned for the city of Portland, Maine. Picnic: Music and Arts Festival is happening this Saturday, September 13th in Lincoln Park.

Come see yours truly in good old booth 64, as well as these talented folks. And of course, many many more.

If you wonder where I am this week, I’m buried under a pile of new vintage goodies for the fest. I’m a bit crazed, but I can’t wait.

See you there!

A Nice Cold Drink

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Would be really nice right now. 

Makes Cold Drinks Taste Better

Ah pregnancy. You’ve got me for another long, hot summer. Guess I’ll put this in the Shop and go have a glass of lemonade instead.

Happy 4th everyone! We’ll be at the parade in Freeport, followed by a craft fair at the brand new Freeport Square Gallery, and then off to a family barbecue. As it should be.

See y’all on Monday.
