finishing projects

I received an email yesterday that confirmed our place as stall holders at Massey University's market day on the 28th of Feb (next Wednesday!!!) held on Albany Campus. It's part of the orientation kick off for their students so there will also be bands playing, free food, and many other stalls selling miscellaneous items.
It should be a good time and a bit of an experiment for Anemone. You see, this is not exclusively a craft fair so other stalls are not required to have hand made goods. This means there will be a totally different feel than what we are used to at Craftwerk and we will probably be competing with stalls that carry machine made goods manufactured in third world countries with items priced very low. I guess we will have to come up with a marketing plan to stress that everything at our stall is *LOVINGLY HANDMADE IN NZ *MADE FROM OUR OWN DESIGNS* with many*ONE OFF ORIGINALS! and hope that people will be willing to pay a fair price for it. Relatively speaking our things are still inexpensive. Everything we sell is between $3.50-$40, which is more than fair.
At any rate here are a the things I have been finishing up : 4 new ipod covers (i sold a few the other day) 30 new envelopes, and 4 new bags.

Also on other note, I discovered the most beautiful child's kimono today on this blog and wanted to share it (with permission). Feast your eyes on this:

Beautiful eh?

Well, all for now

I'm doing Massey market day too! except in Palmerston North, of course. Mine is this Friday - wish me luck!

I'm a little freaked as well, because the organiser said "Oh we'd love to have you because most of the other stalls are corporates, like banks and cellphone providers or food stalls." WEIRD! I think our stall will be the 'local colour' element. *nerves*

& lovely kimono, too - great fabric choices, aye?
