Vintage goods are going like hotcakes!!! I'm pretty sure it's due to Tara Lea's ah-mazing photography!! The Vintage Nerd Sweater is going to be on it's way to a new, happy home this week. Get your goods before they are gone, because with vintage, once we are out....we are OUT.

Happy Cyber Monday everyone!! Don't forget to hit up Etsy for all your awesome Christmas-gifty needs. If you don't see what you like, there are tons of designers more than willing to do custome orders if you just ask. :)

Lots of love!

All's quite on the Candy front? I think not!!

I am please to announce on behalf of both Samantha Marie and myself, that Propaganda Candy has just made it's first sale. HOORAH!!!

And, my dear Candy Fans, it was not only just a was a quadruple sale! Four Finger Candy Rings to one lucky buyer. What a good first sale. Indeed.

So you know what that means? Two things:
1. A new video shall be forthcoming
2. New listings are called for even MORE

How was the Pec Thing? I think it's all summed up pretty well in this fantabulous video:

The Pec Thing Cometh!

Indeed it does!

And the wonderful news is that some dear little ladies from our dorm hall are all excited about making the trek back home with Samantha Marie and I! Three girls (Sarah, Trisha, and Becca) will journey into the world of insane crafty-sales this Friday.

Basically, we told them that the Pec Thing is a gi-gan-toid flea market/craft show with tons of cool stuff and they were all like, "Oh heck yes we'll come help you!!" Plus, my dad may or may not be making homemade pizza Saturday night.

Bribery with food and flea markets. I love these girls.

But seriously, they are wonderfully fun and kind for coming with this weekend. It's going to be an all-night, all-out craft-a-thon Friday night in order to make sure everything is all set for Saturday morning. We are kind of pushing it this time, but I have faith. Especially with the addition of three more sets of helping hands.

Five days until we open!! Keep us in your prayers.

Lord knows we need them...
