Ordinary Lovely 2015 Shoplet

I'm so happy to have a few handmade items available for sale!  

A Shoplet is a mini, unofficial shop - a place where I can share the things I've made over and above what my family needs.  It's a way for me to share my joy in making simple, lovely, and useful things for friends and family.  And it's a way for me to do it in my own little space!  (You can read about why I chose the "Shoplet" over Etsy here.)

Thank you for stopping by!  If you want to find this post in the weeks to come, or want to direct a friend here, there will be a Shoplet image on the top of my right sidebar that you can click on to bring you right here :)  

Please read the following guidelines before browsing and purchasing.

  • The Shoplet will be open until December 11.  I will not take any purchases after that date.

  • If you would like to buy an item, please leave a comment here at the end of this post stating the name and number of the item.  Please then send me an email at theresa[dot]blackstone[at]gmail[dot]com with the same information, as well as your name and full address.  

  • Comments from non-buyers are still welcome.  Obviously!!

  • I am only able to accept payments by PayPal (or in person from local folk!)  Once the payment, including the packing and shipping cost, has been sent to my PayPal account (the email listed above) I will send out your item and notify you by email.

  • If I do not receive your payment within three days of your comment, I will put the item back up for sale for someone else to purchase.

  • I cannot take any additional orders at this time.  I'm sorry.  Special orders are so flattering that I wish I could :(  But my own kids' Christmas presents have yet to be crocheted!  

  • And of course, please let me know if you have any questions!

I've never done this on my blog before and it's a bit of an experiment for me!  I think it will go well!  However, I know you'll be patient with me if there are kinks to work out :)

I'd love for you invite your family and friends to come check out the Shoplet too!  All are welcome!  And if they're friends of readers, they're very welcome <3

Again, thank you for stopping by!

  2. Theresa, beautiful work. I'm amazed by this as I don't have a crafty bone in my body! I was just about to buy our girls sorely needed winter gear when I saw your post. I would much rather have yours and think of you as we wear them. I would like to purchase the butterfly garden teether (5C), the two bibs 7A and 7B, and items 10-15--the two child cowls, the child mittens, the toddler mittens in pink, the toddler hat and the women's eggplant scarf. If you had a man's scarf I would buy it lol, thank you for helping to keep my family warm throughout New England winter! Thanks, Angela (Parquette) Barek

Like the old song says, "comments are a girl's best friend." Or something like that... So... leave a comment! I love chatting here! Pretend you're on my back porch, kick the broken plastic sandbox toys aside, sip your iced coffee, or beer, or (__fill in the blank with your beverage of choice__) and let's talk about all the things, because back-porch blogging is what I do!
