Whistle While You Work!

ConstantlyAlice gives me a great sense of joy and accomplishment.  Over the last year or so since I started selling on ConstantlyAlice, I’ve developed a blog, created projects and giveaways, started making handcrafted jewelry and met some wonderful, WONDERFUL people (that’s you!!)

However, I have never really done any of it with a plan in mind.  I just put things out there as I think of them, add stuff to the site when I have a moment away from my full time job and family and occasionally share a thought, passion or two when the spirit moves me.

SO.

I’ve decided to change that a bit and make a more serious commitment to really developing ConstantlyAlice into a thriving business.  I want to provide you, as my customers, community and friends, with not just a good product, but a great one.

What does that mean?

Well, for starters, I am working on creating a ConstantlyAlice website.  It will be a one stop shop for everything ConstantlyAlice.  Blog, merchandise, vintage, tutorials and my soon to be developed YouTube Channel.

I am also expanding what I offer.  As you know, I have recently added the Avon brand to my growing list of products.  Some other things you can expect, in addition to really great vintage finds and handcrafted jewelry, will be knitting and crochet patterns, ConstantlyAlice Designs (a line of vintage inspired clothing and accessories) and a line of handbags and wallets.

Additionally, you can expect a lookbook/magazine.  This project is still in the works, but I hope to make it either a quarterly or seasonal offering.

You’ll notice these changes gradually, and everything else will be business as usual (I won’t be closing up shop while I go through this process!)  Keep an eye out for the grand unveiling of the site, lots of giveaways and contests, some discount coupons and sales as we grow 🙂

Thanks so much for being loyal customers and followers of ConstantlyAlice ❤

A sneak peek at a few of the new items coming to the shop with the fall launch (and some style ideas.)..Pretty Black velvet and chiffon top with a tie at the neck and a zip up the back, and a lovely a-line wine colored skirt!

Also, in the shop right now..the Red Riding Hood Necklace.  A perfect accessory!

Craft Fair!

This weekend, I set up shop at my very first craft fair!  It was a new experience for me, and while it was small with not a lot of traffic, we did sell enough to make back the cost of our booth plus a little more AND got some great experience.

I had the pleasure of my daughter, Shannon, and my niece, Maddie’s company for the afternoon and they were a BIG help.  (Shannon also goes to school in the area, so a lot of her little friends came to visit and kept us entertained 😉

Maddison also came with her own items for sale, some very clever duck tape pens, pencils, purses and wallets.  She did a great job and sold quite a few!  She also taught Shannon to make them and Shann was able to sell one of her own!

Some of the items I had for sale were these brooches

Magnets

A few necklaces

Earrings

Bracelets (both of the mermaid one’s sold and were a huge hit!)


Also for sale were the cowls and hats pictured in the first photo.

We had lots of fun, and are looking forward to doing a few more craft fairs over the holiday season!
