Charters Towers Showground Markets

First market for the year has been and gone. We had a great time and did very well. I would like to thank the people of Charters Towers for their support today. Without them taking the time to come out we would not have a markets to show off our talents. And a big thank you to the other stall holders who made the effort to get up early and have everything ship shape by Seven. We should all pat ourselves on the back, for without us, there would be no markets

Well today I tried something a little different, instead of overwhelming everyone, I only put out Handbags, Wallets, Coin Purses, some Baby Pouches and a few softies...

I think it worked. Everything went quite smoothly and we sold enough to make the morning worthwhile. I have been playing with the idea of only taking certain merchandise to each market. Most people know me now and I do have photo books of what I make. The CWA Hall may well be a good launching pad for my collection of childrens clothes... which means that is all I would sell there... baby and childrens essentials.

My mind has been working overtime today, thought I might also start up a group for the markets, not sure what I want just yet, need to think it through and talk to the organises of the three we have here in town.

Anyways guys, that is it for me today, I am off to cut out some dresses...
Cheers Sas.

Tropical Breeze Collection out soon!

My gosh, the days, weeks and now months are flying by. "What happened to, Stop and Smell the Roses, Mr Time?" Guess he doesn't care for Mother Nature...

Well I know I said I was thinking of putting 'Saselven' out there on Etsy, when I had prepared myself.... welllll, I am on. I had cut out a heap of designer handbags before we went on holidays (check out My Journeys Page) and hadn't gotten them done. So, I have been sewing my little heart out and now they are proudly displayed in My Etsy Shop in all there fantabulous glory. I also have some Nappy/Diaper Pouches on and a few wallets. I am getting on average 10 - 20 hits a day, not really knowing if this is good or not. No purchases yet, early days though so I am not panicking. I have a new line of childrens clothing which will be added to my My Etsy Shop as soon as I have added the finishing touches to them. I have started with sizes 1 through 4 at the moment, see how they go and then may do larger sizes later... A sneak peak below:

Two Piece Set, fully lined (top can be reversable)- Size 1 - $30.00 + postage.

I will have six outfits in my debut 'Tropical Breeze' Collection. Which will be on sale in the very near future... I will introduce the collection in My Etsy Shop and on my Facebook Page Saselven when it is avaiable for purchase.

That's all for now, I hope each and every one of you are striving to make a difference in this crazy mixed up world of ours.
Cheers Sas.
