Lots of inventory....for now!

I've been taking inventory in preparation for this week's craft sales.

Right now I have a lot of stock but it won't last long!

FYI I'm keeping my prices the same as last year $20 for hats and scarves, $15 for headbands/headwarmers and boot toppers, and $10 for fingerless gloves, flowers (or 2 for $15 for flowers).

If you would like to buy something but can't make the sales, please call me at 604-921-1590.

I'm home most of this week (getting ready) and I'd love to have you come by and pick something out (while I have the stock).

Here's a peek at some of the colours I've got in the Newsboy style brimmed hat.
I also have a good selection of scarves right now.  Lots of coordinated looks - not too matchy-matchy!

Sorry about the photos - not sure why it's so dark...

Crochet by Marie - Upcoming Sales Events

I've been busy crocheting up a storm for some upcoming craft sales events.

As well as restocking on hats and cowls, I've been making up batches of boot cuffs, head warmers and fingerless gloves.
These fingerless gloves are perfect for keeping your hands warm but your fingers free for driving and texting (not at the same time of course) and they're also great for keeping your hands warm for those late nights on the computer.

I'll be selling my hats, head warmers, gloves and boot cuffs at Elaine's Creative Dimensions Open House at 5634 Eagle Harbour Road,  West Vancouver   (click address for map) Tel 604 921 7881 on Thursday November 28th (date change)  7 -10 pm and also Thursday December 5th  7-10pm.

And don't forget about this awesome family event at the Gleneagles Holiday Artisan Festival on Saturday November 30 11-4pm.  Click HERE for link to Google Map.

Find your inner crochet....

A HUGE Thank You to everyone who came by my booth yesterday and left with a little bit of crochet.

It's funny that when I wore something most people asked to try it on and ending up buying it.

Is that the power of suggestion at work?

Anyway if you did come by but didn't find what you were looking for or wanted something a little more custom - please email me or leave a comment here and I'll work with you to make just the right piece of crochet for you.

One down and one to go....

This year I'm only doing 2 Craft Sale events.

Last year I did one - maybe next year I'll do 3.  Who knows....

My first Craft Sale was yesterday (Sunday, Oct 6) at the West Vancouver Pumpkin Fest.

We had such awesome sunny weather here yesterday and it was perfect day for all the families that came out to enjoy all the pumpkin-y goodness at this free event.

I had a great time participating in the Open Air Artisans Market and sold a lot of crochet.

It will be fun to see people around town and on the seawall wearing my stuff!

Everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Next to my booth was the Happy Water people and the West Van seniors.  The seniors sold out of everything by the end of the day and I missed out on getting one of their delicious looking pies!

Here's a photo of Zona and I at my booth (I actually took this photo with Groopic).

Next up is the Gleneagles Christmas Festival on Saturday November 30.

Yes I will replenish my crochet stock and will be bringing along the boot toppers and more kids hats!

Maybe I'll see you there?

Crochet - Not just for girls anymore!

I've been trying to make some crochet cowls for the guys in gray, brown and black.

But they are going fast and it's hard to keep up with the demand....

This is a photo of my son wearing one of my cowls that he picked out for himself.

I think it's catching on!

Would he wear this?

While I was preparing my stock for upcoming sales my son's friend, Quin came over for a visit.  

I had everything out to be tagged and inventoried and the place looked like a hat and scarf factory had exploded!

Anyway, he asked me about my scarves and if he could try one on.  I said sure and he picked out a grey infinity/cowl scarf.

It looked totally awesome on him and the perfect going away gift since he's moving from Vancouver to Calgary.

I've wanted to expand with options for children and men and so I'm adding a few colours and textures that might appeal to the male audience.

What do you think of this?

Do you know a man who would wear a crochet hat and scarf?

Boot Warmers/toppers

Meet my new friends....

Today I picked up these 2 to help me out at the local craft fairs this season.

Don't they look good - all decked out in my crochet?

Now I just need to give them some names.

Any suggestions?

New additions....

At this year's craft sales I will continue to have my infinity scarves and cowls in a variety of colours as well as the same hats from last year - both the slouchy beanie and the flower cap.

In addition I have a more slouchy beanie and some headbands as well as some fun kids hats.

More Crochet...

Craft Fair Preparations Underway

I have been super busy getting the kids settled into their university lives and getting myself organized for the upcoming Fall and Winter Craft Fairs.

To kick off the season I'll be at the West Vancouver Pumpkin Fest Market on Saturday Oct 6th selling my crochet goodies.

Other locations and times TBA later.

Here's a sneak peek of what I'll have for sale at the market.

My prices are very reasonable (same as last year) and I'm open to custom orders!
