The rush...

Its Friday...and tomorrow is the last Saturday of June.
So it's market time at Wyetti.

Its also one of those weekends where it'd be good to be 3 people.

For tomorrow I've marked certain stock with gold dots and some with silver dots.
So its discount hunting time at Wonder Struck Inc's table!
Gold dots give you 30% off the tag price and silver dots give you 50%  off the tag price!
And! Spend more than R200 and you'll get 10% off the entire purchase...with or without the discount dots.
Not kidding.

Its going to hopefully be a huge, busy, sales day for the stallholders and for Wonder Struck Inc.

Hope to see many regular Wonder Struckers and new Wonder Struckers there!

Wyetti Craft Market, Wargrave Road, Henley-on-klip, Gauteng.
From 9:30am - 3pm

So much much goodness

Wow, June has just been great, even more so this last week.
2 weeks ago, my beloved horsebeast had night visitors in his stable and they stole his saddle in the process. Then, this Friday night that just passed...they visited again, only to steal both his blankets right off of poor Sonny's back.
So, I've made the very costly decision to finally move him to a friend's stable, where not only will he be safer, but so will his very costly equipment and clothing...

so besides THAT... yes, June has been FANTASTICAL to Wonder Struck Inc.

Thank you to the amazing jewellery arteest on Etsy, SteelGreyArt, who featured Wonder Struck Inc. on her blog!
I am truly flattered and amazed that she never got comments about my dreadful grammar in the bio (eeeek), but I am so thankful for the opportunity!
Please check out this talented lady's Etsy store for all your piercing jewellery needs! Especially if you're a lover of nature and being more connected with Mother Earth!

Then.... *squee* I had a special arrival in the post office last week....

He will be joining my still small collection of vinyl toys ....and many more that I intend on adding FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!

Here are my other 3 gorgeous toys, that I have thanks to my new addiction because of Vinyl Destination

Vinyl addiction! begins

Also, I have been very very lucky to also come to "know" a fantastically talented vinyl guy, named Reddprime

I'll see what I can do about nagging these 3 for some bios for the blog ;)...

Then...onto what I *ACTUALLY* work on.............. mwahahahahahaha
I'm busy adding some extra listings onto Wonder Struck Inc's Etsy, while I'm doing this entry *cough*, don't say I don't at least TRY multitasking....
Here is just SOME of what I've been working on and what is avaible now...

New teddy bears collab ;)

8-bit inspired skulls

"Down the rabbit hole" adjustable rings

8-bit pokeball pins (GEEKERY!)

"Down the rabbit hole" rings, in antique bronze

"I crap rainbows" 8-bit inspired cloud & rainbow pin

Pacman geekery!

Also, we're 4 days away from our usual setup at Wyetti Market.
We hope you'll come past and see our snazzy new stall setup AND to grab our 30% and 50% discounts on certain items... there'll be treasure hunting going on our table!
I won't be having discounts on anything again for most of whats left of this year, so take advantage now!

Until the next post ;)

It's temporary...

our temporary Etsy store banner (while our graphic designer is on haitus)

Email isn't always all it's cracked up to be, when you send fonts and changes listed to your graphic designer and a then resend it a month after no response.
Considering how much work has already gone into the work with him, I'm not about to give up just yet...
So, in the meantime, I've loaded a banner so that my poor Etsy page doesn't look so lost and empty.

Last night was dreadful weather so...We didn't go to our usual monthly night market at Henley Arms.
I don't think my lungs and cough would have survived it.
So, I started listing more items and loading the coupon code for a 35% discount STORE WIDE!
When buying on our Etsy store, on checkout there's a box that says Coupon Code, in that box you'll use HAVE35OFF so that you can get 35% discount on all items (this doesn't extend to the shipping costs, so please take note of that).
This discount will run until 24 June 2012 *only*, so the discount won't be valid after that.
I really wouldn't mind the support during the sale, as this morning was a small run of badluck when I got to the horse's stable this morning, to find that my brand new saddle had been stolen during the course of last night.
So most of what I sell now will have to go towards a new saddle savings mission *le sigh*

The bad luck didn't last too long and I've been making so much rad cuteness and awesome with hama beads today!
Rings, brooches (which have already been listed on Etsy) and I'm about to start with a few necklaces.
So much of fun and stuff!

I've been so inspired by all the creative that I'm still up at 1am, dressed in gloves and scarves and double socks and double jerseys as I work through this very very...very cold winter evening.
Hope everyone's keeping warm.....or cool ;)

Night market shinanigans....June

It's time for our monthly night market, happening at Henley Arms, from 6pm.
The Henley Arms is in Ewelme road, Henley-on-klip and we'd be bowled over if you joined and came to say hi.
We always seem to run a little late in getting there, but we're usually next to Astra, our pink-salt-selling-market-mom.
There'll be some new pieces to see on our table, especially for pixel geeks ;)
Otherwise, enjoy your Friday humans :)

Ah wow. May was indeed a rough month for Wonder Struck Inc.
Though we did *exceptionally* well at our Wyetti Market stall, I was unproductive for about a week, what with being owned by flu and all.

June has started off quietly, and we're anxiously waiting to get started with all our new products and collaborations with some very talented humans.

Some of our new products will be available for a sneak peek at tomorrow night's market at Henley Arms.
It's also the owner's birthday and we're dressing up in the theme of the evening: Arabian Nights.
Come by for some crafts, drinking and fun ;)
So onward into June.
Lots of newness, new hairstyle/colour, new products, new collaborations, new customers...and lots of good business!

Have a great Thursday humans :)

our "DEADLY CARNIVAL" bracelet sets are R30 / USD8.00 per set, excluding shipping.

black and white cab necklaces (in several different designs) are R45 / USD9.00 each, excluding shipping.
