so we're back on for the flea, this sunday the 16th. I used to never look at weather forecasts, and did just fine on my own. I think I'll go back to that method. (it didn't rain yesterday after all)

at least we're prepared, and can relax this week. the plastic mesh came today!

here's some more eye candy for you.

copper, brass and steel wire rings from andrew clark of brooklyn.

all-natural herbal soaps from family-owned master soap makers valobra, of genova, italy. cool packaging too.

pewter and glass moose shot glass from goody grams of japan. we have a rabbit version too.

nambu cast iron birds-foot bookends from northern japan.

also...EVERYTHING in the molliedash collection will be discounted 20%, 30% or 50% off!

I sincerely hope everything goes smoothly for this weekend. fingers crossed.

thinking about

•new website design
•new designs for fall
•getting a bike

It is definitely looking like a rain day.

Not going out to the Brooklyn Flea today.... We'll try next week.

looks like rain?

so, I've been following the forecast all week, which has flipped-flopped from sun to rain to sun to an increasing chance of rain. we're going to keep a close eye on it tonight, and if it looks like a rainy day tomorrow, we won't be out at the flea. instead, we'll try for the following weekend. rats!

check-check-check it out.

this a.m. the ups man arrived with our cards, straight in from astoria, queens. (click on it for a larger view) yesterday b and I took the g train up to metropolitan ave. in williamsburg to get some supplies. I had some stretchers sitting around, rescued from the trash when I lived in astoria, over four years ago! first stop was crest hardware, where we got s-hooks for hanging stuff like t-shirts and stuffed toys from the frame of the tent; clothes pins for anchoring down price tags; light bulbs cause we needed them; bungees b/c why not; and a grommet kit for hanging the mesh. the mesh probably won't get here till monday, btw. then down to artist & craftsman supply for canvas and gesso. then back to crest for a staple gun and staples. I got rid of a lot of my heavy painting supplies when I left richmond in 1997 and never replaced them. it felt so good to have these items back in my possession, and better yet to use them today. we talked about ideas for making an everbrite sign, and b suggested painting one. great idea! I already had a stash of acrylics and brushes. and oh, if you ever get a chance to check out crest hardware, do it! the trippiest hardware store you'll ever see- artwork made of and inspired by hardware, tucked into every corner of the place. today I stretched one of the canvases and put on three coats of gesso. then I pulled down a box of vintage stuff from the closet and started pricing things: a pair of 1979 candie's, (I wore these to my jr. high graduation) 1960's ray ban "caribbean" sunglasses, a set of 60's frosted cocktail glasses, a polaroid spectra, and more! I also found a stash of bargain necklaces I had made ($10 each) and handful of puka bead chokers. tomorrow we really need to get some bins so I can get everything that's priced out of the way and I can see what I'm doing. but the weather's looking good for this weekend, so I'm psyched.

started two different posts after two different weekend jaunts, but in the draft box they shall stay. my mind's been a bit scattered lately, with all the preparation for the flea. (just finished a session of kundalini yoga- it helps.) I put b on graphic design duty, making an ebmerc postcard. he's right now printing proofs and obsessing about the details. better him than me! for my part I've been deciding on which items to take, marking them in inventory, pricing, and hand lettering tags. that's after ordering the tags and an ebmerc stamp. plus ordering bags and some screening to keep the sun out of the tent. we picked up some plastic sheeting on saturday, in case of rain. so many details to think about.

so come on out next sunday! we're so excited to premiere our new little shoppe!
