SFFCCSP Festival of Lights

sffccspfestivaloflightsWe have heard about a possible craft vendors opportunity during the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park’s Festival of Lights in December. We wanted to tell everyone about it so that you could contact the park’s Gift Shop Manager about setting up a tent in the craft village for the month or even better if you have a cute little “Shop on Wheels” they may let you set up there. We spoke to the previous manager about it when we were volunteering there year before last. They did have two vendors set up on the sidewalk outside the gift shop main entrance last year. This event draws literally thousands and thousands of people from as far away as South Florida and North Georgia every single year.

Watch For Scam Artists

mailbox-2This week we received an email from someone claiming they wanted to order some of our products and asked if we accept “Mastercard/Visa” payments and would be willing to ship to the Netherlands. This turned out to be a scam email and we have since marked each request as spam. We answered the initial email as it came through our CONTACT US form and stated that we would be shipping through the U.S. Postal Service and payments were processed through Paypal. We received a reply asking for an estimate of charges for multiples of items not only listed in our Custom Order pages available on this website but multiples of orders we have listed on Etsy.

All About Pumpkin

HoodedScarves060416 (19)All about pumpkin to me means the month of October is filled with the color of orange and the weather is finally cooling off here in Florida. My favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming at the end of the month and the leaves are turning. Yes, even in Florida our leaves turn. Well at least those trees that are not evergreens anyway. October also brings more festivals, farmers markets, craft shows, and more visitors with the “snow birds” coming down.

Vintage Trailer Short Term Campaign

bonfiretshirtfrontSince we really need a mobile retail shop to house our vast supply of handcrafted items we have created over the last couple of years we are going to run a T-Shirt Campaign to get some initial funding to buy a used vintage trailer and convert it to a mobile retail shop to use while we are gathering the funding for our brand new replica 1961 Holiday House Travel Trailer Mobile Retail Shop. Once we purchase the vintage travel trailer, remake it into a mobile store and use it a few months we may be able to offer it as a reward for our main campaign or even rent it out for local craft businesses in North Florida and Southern Georgia to use at their own craft vending opportunities.
