Time Flies!

I cannot believe its been a whole month (exactly) that I have written on here. So sorry to my followers! Please forgive me!

I have been pretty busy, and thats good! I have had lots of custom orders as well as getting my work into a few new shops across the US! - which I am very excited about! I was so scared to take that step forward and try out consignment and wholesale - but now that I have, it is so easy! I urge anyone who is struggling with stepping over, to just do it! Check out the Etsy Forums for tips on how to approach a shop, how to set up your wholesale prices, details on consignment do's and don'ts, comparisons between wholesale vs. consignment, etc. And if you can't find an answer you're looking for, I suggest posting a question, and I am sure people will respond. It's a whole new world, but I think its a great opportunity for us small business owners/crafters/creators!

Here is where you can currently find my work:
1. Anna Maria Island, Florida: The Hive Creations 119 Bridge Street
2. Philadelphia, PA: Slingluff Gallery 11 W. Girard Ave
3. Kingston, Rhode Island: The Gift Emporium at URI 99 Fortin Road
4. Lee Vining, California: Mono Lake Gift Shop Hwy 395 at Third Street
5. Philadelphia, PA: VIX Emporium 5009 Baltimore Avenue

And there is more coming soon!!! I am very excited about this and you should definitely check out these awesome shops/galleries if you are anywhere close to these areas! Cool stuff in them, for sure.
