New pieces for the Springfield show in May

well, I finally downloaded some pictures.  Some of these pieces were for sale in Nashville and didn't sell and some are brand new.  What do you think of the new bracelet collection I started?  My brother-in-law played baseball in college and now has 3 young boys (5 years old or younger) that love sports, so I thought making one for my sister in law would be nice.  She liked it and gave me more old baseballs to work with.  The first one I did I wore to a party and someone bought it right off my wrist.  It was pretty with black and clear crystals around the edges, similar to the teal one below.  
  The rest of the pieces are for the next show and will be listed in my Etsy store.  Check them out and purchase them quick, they are one of a kind.

(sorry, the photos are unedited, kinda dark or light...)

The Vintage Marketplace Style is back!

The Jenkins family is bringing The Vintage Marketplace to the Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market in May!  I am very excited about this, and will be participating again.  The group of sellers in Tennessee were so fun and being part of the start up of this group is exciting.  I look forward to the displays and see all their purdy faces again!  I will post more as time gets closer, and list what I have been making for the show, previewing the sale!

A new day

Hello Sonja,  welcome.

I am getting started on my best far-away client, Kathleen Hairston, project.  She has entrusted me to do several pieces for her.  I have been putting it off until the Vintage Marketplace show was over and now I am devoting my week to Kathy.  Knowing that nothing else is on my plate to work on right away, I am going to WOW her with creativity.  Now, wheres my coffee?

The Vintage Marketplace Weekend

Whew!  What an awesome weekend.  I am so tired and my feet are hurting but my heart is happy and all is good at home.  My sister and Ellen were real troopers, kept me upbeat and were great motivators.  Unfortunately, they were such great sellers and spokespersons for my jewelry that I was gone from my booth often and purchased too much.  The sales were great and the feedback from the buyers was very positive; great jewelry, creative display, etc.  Several people wanted to take pictures of my display, which could only mean .....two things; it was great or it was not.  You decide.

Additionally, this is the only good picture ever taken of me.

I met some really great people at this show and have made friends with some of the most creative and supportive women I have ever known.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of the first Vintage Marketplace.   I will be selling in Springfield Ohio at the May Extravaganza.  The Jenkins family have to work out the details of the venue for the Vintage Marketplace location within the Extravaganza, and I will let you know as soon as I do, but I plan on participating for sure.  I will be changing my business name; it will be......wait for it.....wait........
It is easy, simple, in your face, just like me.  It is usually mispronounced, caddy, like caddy shack.  Apparently the larger part of the population do not remember the fundamentals in their middle school english class.  Cady, pronounced like shady lady.  Call me Shady Lady Cady!

If you purchased something from me or the pretty Shady Ladies helping me, and you just now looked up my blog please leave me a comment on what you thought of the show and what you bought.  Follow me for updates on the next new pieces I am making and stay tuned for more changes to my bid-ness.
