so last night was the big shop for a cause event, and it was so fun! lots of great local vendors, fantastic food and good wine (castle rock pinot noir? yum!). even live music, sung by a 30-something blonde (male) attorney who is single…and for whom brin and i will be looking around for a young dame to set up with…any ideas?? :)
i snapped some quick pics of my display, which was comprised entirely of things i (or people i know) already have on hand.
fabric: the brown piece is leftover from getting our headboard made a few years ago, and the vintage turquoise polka dots were purchased online to use for photo shoot backdrops. and if you can believe it, i do not own an iron…so the folds just add to the charming nature of the set-up, n’est-ce pas?
for the first time ever, we featured calliespondence gift tags! we had adhesive and tie-on varieties.
the old coke bottle display case was brin’s, and was used as her cake stand (how cool).
might i add that we SOLD OUT of the below design. i came home and excitedly told rbb this fact, to which he said, “that’s awesome, how many did you sell?” ”uhh…three. but still – SOLD OUT.” that’s right.
we also fashioned some adhesive shipping labels, which are great if you have far-flung loved ones to send gifts to. a well dressed package is a must! and might i clarify that they are NOT extra-large gift tags like rbb thought.
custom holiday card station… i picked up the card display at scott’s a while back.
a few baby thank you notes for good measure…
all in all, a great time for a great cause! thanks brin for inviting me. and thus begins the retail division of calliespondence…coming to an etsy
shop near you soon!
