The beginning of November marked the beginning of my busy Holiday Market Season - and let me tell you, it's been crazy! On top of my day job, running our daughter to her extracurricular activities, and my own commitments, I've been busy prepping and sewing new products for the busy craft fair season.
Now that all the shows are done for the season, I am finally getting to photograph and list all the new products!
NEW Coin Purses
The number one seller this holiday season were my new coin purses - these were selling like hotcakes at every market! Made with fun fabrics on one side, durable cork on the other, and lined in light grey cotton, these little change purses make the perfect stocking stuffer or gift card holder. These are one of a kind so be sure to grab your favourite before it sells out!
Small Cosmetic Bags/Zipped Pouches
I love these little zipped pouches! They're great for carrying around all your essentials - be it makeup, your diabetic test kit, essential oils... the sky is the limit! New designs are in the shop now - and more detail photos will be added soon!
COMING SOON: Waxed Canvas Tote Bags
I have 4 new winter tote bags awaiting photos - these new and improved totes feature water resistant black waxed canvas straps and base. If you'd like to snag one of these bags, be sure to send me a message (head on over to the Facebook Page for a peek at these lovelies).
Local pick up are available from Vanier College in Montreal until December 17 and from the Studio in East Hawkesbury, Ontario until December 23. Canada Post Shipping deadlines: Xpresspost - December 19, or Priority - December 20.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays, and all the best for 2020!

For the past couple weeks I've been stuck in a holding pattern while I wait for an order of cork leather to arrive from my supplier in Portugal. All of the fabric is cut and prepped, zippers are ready to go, all that's left to do is wait...
...which kind of sucks. My creative brain gets antsy when I can't create.
Which brings us to scrunchies. These were a wardrobe stable when I was in high school. I loved to go shopping for new ones - so many different designs & styles to choose from! Which is why the return of the scrunchie is so awesome - I've got a ton of fabric remnants from past bags and impulse buys that I was never quite sure what to do with. So, this past week I've been cutting fabric and sewing up scrunchies with abandon.
And it's so addictive! Once the scrunchie is sewn up, all the finishing is done by hand which means I'm not stuck in the studio all day (a definite bonus during these last few days of summer vacation).
Scrunchies are available now in the shop, and more will be coming soon. They will also be available at our upcoming Fall Harvest Market in Williamstown, Ontario on Sunday September 15 (Please see Events for all the details).
