Studio Sale and ebay auction

My studio is so packed full of textiles, bags, figurines etc that I can hardly move around anymore, so I've made a huge sales list here:

http://www.meltedfabrics.com/StudioSale.htm

These pieces may appear on ebay/etsy if they don't sell from the list.

I've also listed the Winter Art Quilt on ebay here:

It's UK only because of the size and weight of it.

bugged designs: fairy birthday card

Fairy birthday card added to the website



In honour of the birth of baby Niamh I've added a new section to the Bugged
Designs
website with examples of cards that people can make with children,
the examples have been made by Niamh with help from Mammy and Daddy! Only one
card there at the moment (Easter chick) but there will be more to come.

Happy UK Etsy shopping!

sourcing

Hi all,

First, I'm happy to see a few people have actually 'subscribed' to this livejournal despite me not advertising or putting any more effort into it other than the spark the day I decided to create it. Perhaps soon I can get around to that...

I'm just getting back into crafting - knitting is my most recent craft I've taken up and I'm obsessed. In the past I did beaded jewellery and cards and want to do some more of that - I just really lack any space right now to spread out and get going, but I need to do it because I enjoy it.

Anyway, I am toying with the idea of making some items and seeing if they'll sell - be it online or in some of the local shops in my area. As I've only ever made items for myself and friends, I never needed quantity - a pop down to the local craft shop to pick up a few jump rings and crimp beads and that was all I needed. I don't want to get ahead of myself and buy loads of stuff to find out that trying to sell a few items here and there isn't worth it. However, I'm curious to know where you source materials.

I'm looking for:

* beading materials (sterling findings, some gold findings (I never use gold so I need to familiarise myself with this as I know some people prefer it), tiger tail, etc.)
* containers (e.g. small tins / jewellery boxes)
* card stock

I've looked on eBay and found a few things, but I just wonder about the quality so if you can recommend particular sellers, that'd be appreciated.
