Getting ready for the Holiday Bazaar


cid:image015.png@01D321A4.F91A4D40
Every year I do one or two craft shows.. generally at the same place.. This year the Holiday Bazaar is Nov. 1st.. from 11 am to 2 pm.. a perfect time for me.. as I cant do a all day event.. it is sponsored by Travelers Insurance at the Waterfront Village - 50 & 60 Lakefront Blvd.  

This year I am adding a new item besides my hanging towels.. I wanted to make these last year but didnt have time.. so this year I plan on making them.. more about that after I get one made.. 

I will be putting pictures up of what I am making.. but nothing will be available for sale on Etsy or Facebook until Nov. 2nd.. you can always let me know you want a particular item.. I wont save it.. but if it isnt sold, you get first choice.. you can also stop in and check out the Bazaar.. it is for the employees, but we are in a public place..

Postage went up..

I went to the post office today to mail some stuff.. and discovered first class parcel postage is now a minimum of 43.00.. so I now have to increase my postage/handling to $3.50 to cover some of the postage cost, the fees for selling and the Paypal fees.. I hated doing this.. but I dont charge much for my items as it is... so cant afford to take that much of a cut..

Am canning pickles today

I simply have way too many cucumbers.. so decided to make refrigerator pickles. I needed to find a recipe with NO sugar as I am diabetic. and found this one.. hopefully they will be as tasty as they sound.. I rather like both garlic and apple cider vinegar.. so this sounds like a good one..
