Holiday Sample Sale @ Little Twig Dec. 1st, 2007 9am-5pm 129 Sheldon Street El Segundo, CA 90245
I just received an email from Paula at Henry Road about an awesome Holiday Sample Sale going on this Saturday at Little Twig in El Segundo, CA! The list of awesome childrens goods designers is quite impressive! This is a great opportunity to get a lot of your holiday shopping done, at ridiculously low prices!
I recently purchased this fab new tote bag from Henry Road and have been carrying it non-stop since! It is my new carry-all! I love the bright, vibrant color, and the magnetic closure makes sure that in my absent-mindedness, all of my stuff doesn't fall onto the ground! Gotta love that! I am really excited to get to share with you that these totes, and others, are available in the Henry Road online shop, so you don't have to be in So. Cal to take advantage of the savings! Each bag is only $24.50 INCLUDING shipping! How can you beat that??!
While you are there, also check out the fabric remnant packs! They are sure to inspire some fantastic sewing!!!!
With the holidays approaching so quickly, and SO many amazingly talented people in Etsy, we are going to be bumping up the seller of the week from 2 to 3!! It is just too hard to choose! There are so many incredible gift ideas keep presenting themselves (no pun intended!) and I have to share them all! So now through 12/21 there will be 3 sellers a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday! Lookout!
Need a little visual stimulation?? The fine folks over at Sony created this AMAZING commercial by dropping over 250,000 superballs over one of the steepest hills in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood. You can see a hi res version here.
If you live in and around Los Angeles, and love handmade wares, then I am sure you are no stranger to the Felt Club! Tomorrow, Nov. 18th, is the XL Holiday show! There will be 70+ vendors, 2 tents hosting fun (and free) classes, live DJs and lots of raffle prizes! This season FC has teamed up with Make Magazine, the organizers behind the Maker Faire, to bring a Maker Square to the event! Now, Felt Club truly has something for EVERYONE!
Be sure to get there early to snag one of the 250 swag bags, but beware, these puppies are usually all snatched up in the first 7 minutes! Happy Shopping!!!
In keeping with the spirit of Every Jot and Tittle, here a few fun holiday cards I recently found on Etsy. These are all designed by an individual seller, and completely unique. Some are funny, some traditional. They all made me smile. I hope you enjoy them and the other items in their shops.
