The next countdown...

3 days away from the next Wyetti market and stable time has just taken over all my inbetween time!

However... There is some really cool stock coming to your eyes this Saturday.
Just cannot wait to set it all up on the stands.

So yea...late nights this week and hopefully LOADS of visitors at the Wonder Struck Inc. stall during Saturday! stable mate Michelle, will be at the market handling the pony rides with her horsemonster, Turkish Delight.

Hope you'll stop by...

Little things...

Well... our blog has been a bit quiet, mainly due to alot of work at the stables taking up spare time right now as I get my horse prepared for his first show in years.
Right now, I feel like the move was worth it.

But onto Wonder Struck Inc. matters...

The little place I will be residing in and which will be Wonder Struck Inc HQ, is coming along nicely.
Painting has been done. Tiling has been done. Electricity has been connected and is working.
I am grateful to have a great step mom who has taken alot of this organising and sorting onto her shoulders... thanks Ma.

I've also started getting all the little bits and pieces together, in my excitement at how close its getting to moving in!
Can't wait to show you all the new place!

Then, as always, I'm continuing to better my work and Wonder Struck Inc. stock.
I'm also trying to make stock more accessible to the non-Etsy and non-paypal users here in South Africa by adding an online store for them!
There's still loads of tweaking and sorting out to on it, but I'm learning all this by doing.
I can just *see* the webpage fundis shivering at the thought ;)

Anyone ordering from our Etsy store from here on out will start finding rather odd, but practical freebie additions to your packages.
Craft supplies will be getting wooden coaster blanks/wooden box blanks/extra pieces, in and apart of the packaging, while those buying our ready to wear/use/gift listings will be getting glam, reusable, recycleable tin boxes that your purchases will be in.

I really want you to get your moneys worth, while feeling special, all in one little package.
So I hope you guys enjoy.

I'm feeling really good about July/August, and I won't let the dismal sales figures get me down.

Go out and support handmade!
And have a great Thursday!

Much love!

More market preperations...

What a run of madness!
Since the market at Wyetti this last Saturday, we moved the horsebeast, Sonny, to his new stable.
I've been getting fit with grooming and mucking out, and this Saturday we start working for reals!

Inbetween now and then however, is the night market at Henley Arms in Henley-on-klip.
I'm really hoping sales go a bit better and I'm hoping to have a great time as always there.

I haven't made anything really new as there's just SO MUCH stock.

I have however, added a "CLEARANCE" section to our Etsy store.
Keep an eye on our Twitter for my listing promotions that I so diligently see to everyday *shew*.

Resin cameos on chain

modified glass cab necklaces. Birds!
Dyed agate braided bracelets (customs made)

Dyed howlite skull beads/braided bracelets (in custom colours/sizes)

Until the next update. Ciao!

New month...more madness...

Its the Monday after our Wyetti market and a night market is heading our way in 4 days.

Sales were dreadful for us on Saturday, but it was still good fun.
Jane, who brings antique and vintage wares....was having a salt&pepper set day. It was sad that no one took any home!
It was also Astra's birthday. Astra sells himalayan pink salt and is...pretty much the market mom.
Heatherlynn (Astra's daughter) and my immediate stall neighbour at just about every market we attend... had the most fantastic range of new stock.
I ended up buying 2 belated birthday gifts from her.

As work continues on the little house I'll be moving to and which will be Wonder Struck HQ, in the meantime I'm a bit frazzled and confused.

As soon as I figure where I am with everything I'll update about all the collabs going on.
