The {NewNew} September wrap up!

Handmade Cavalcade
We hosted our first event! This one up in Beacon NY - The Handmade Cavalcade. It was a resounding success! Customers coming up from NYC and the town stopping in to say hi and shop. Search Handmade Cavalcade on flickr for our photos. So now we have a website set up and mailing list for our future Handmade Cavalcade's so tell your friend's and join our mailing list to stay current with news.

We've started a Monday giveaway! And it's been great. We've had prizes donated by LoveForever, KimmChi, LittleLoveBlue, BlueStitchBooks and ThirdFloor so far this month. All you have to do is blog about the item to be entered to win the item! Check back on Mondays for new contest and last week's winner's.

September was all about display and home in a promotion we like to call Nesting. we got tons of posts this month (really increasing our site traffic as well) with great How-To's from cakehouse, RedBridge, SaltAndpaper, lapistolera, Fubabee, LoveForever, KnitKnit, KarensMonsters and WabisabiBrooklyn. The posts ranged from how to display jewelry, mementos and object arrangements to how to make a bath mat out of an old towel and how to organize, cook and even buy your own home!
