Pet Fest Today!

It’s Pet Fest at Arrowhead Gardens today. It’s happening from 10am to 2pm. Come join the fun, check out the animals (adopt one ?), talk with the vendors. We will be there with some great doggie items; scarves that the collar runs through so your pooch doesn’t chew it off; pet food mats, snuggle bags and the best treat bags ever! Also, handbags and our newest item, Identifly Bands© for your luggage!

Just a little over a week ago we were at the preview show at Ft Lewis for the day. The event is a sneak peek by invited vendors for a huge show that is the major fund raiser for the Officers Spouses Club at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. This year will be the 30th anniversary of this event. We were honored to be chosen to preview our new handbags. They were a great hit, we sold quite a number of them that day with loads of feedback and suggestions from the shoppers. The comments were most welcome and encouraging to us. They are great fun to make and certainly more fun to own!

We’ve been out buying trim! Now that’s a challenge I can tell you. I thought buying fabric was tough but trim is even tougher. What to choose? Do you put tassels on some and not on others? Will sequins be a hit? Does everything have to be braided? Oh yes, then there is the color matching! Do you match or contrast? Here I thought I was out of sewing and now I am deeper into it than ever before and find that I like it. Connie of course has been in love with a sewing machine since she was 10 years old, just the shopping is an adventure for us. It’s really been fun though and I am always excited when the finished items begin to multiply. They always look so great! The fabrics are wonderful, the colors divine and the trims are beautiful!

Keep the first weekend in November open. That is when the Holiday Bazaar happens at Joint Base Lewis-McChord! We will be on the North Fort at The American Lake Club. It is open to the public and entrance to the base is quite simple, id is required and the check in is quick. You won’t want to miss this show, some of the best vendors around, many who have supported this event for years. Let’s support our troops and support this great event. Come shop with us!
