Starting Now: A Break on Shipping

No extra shipping if you buy more than one item from my plethora of online stores -- Cargoh, Wedzu, and Etsy. Just the initial shipping rate -- for every item after that it's free! Because shipping's a downer. Just make sure all items in the same order. Nuts to you, Canada Post.

Sushi and Ameya at the City Market

My fellow crafter Amy and I got into the City Market! Our first appearance is Check the dates on the right hand sidebar to see what days we'll be there. Amy and I are sharing a space, making it a concentration of handmade goodness. Amy sells luxurious soaps and scrubs -- visit her store for a sneak preview!

And don't forget: April 17 is the Swing into Spring show. This show will be huge, with over 75 vendors!

For Your Indie, Handmade Wedding

I live across the street from a big 'ol church. It's very traditional, complete with a steeple and a bell. And because spring is here (ish), this church is going to be occupied every Saturday for the next few months -- by wedding ceremonies. Once I get over the frustration of not having a place to park my car, it's pretty interesting to see the variety of brides out there.

And where do brides get the unique gear to make their wedding memorable? Well, one place is Wedzu is a new site that's a lot like Etsy, selling handmade goods, but it specializes in weddings. Cufflinks made of maps? "Just Married" luggage tags? Turntable save-the-date cards? You got it.

If you're a bride-to-be, this site is worth checking out, even just for inspiration. And Wedzu has great selection of guestbooks, if you know what I mean.
