A quiet moment

As I write this column I am sitting by myself in my booth. It is sunny and warm but there is enough of a breeze for the tent to flap occasionally. My sister has gone for food and my potential customers have (only temporarily I hope!) vanished without a trace as though evaporating in the hot sun. My fellow vendors appear to be napping in the shadows of their booths. Or, they might be comatose in the warmth after lunches of their own…. So I sit, surrounded by colorful scarves, t-shirts, jewelry and other goods, reflecting on human creativity.

Obviously I have been alone too long….

Still, running any shop (online or craft fair) has moments like these: a lull where you can take stock, reflect and plan. Or, take a deep breath in a day that has been (like many craft shows are) complete havoc. So I mull what I want to list online tonight and what I will work on this coming week. And I walk around the shop again and straighten the piles of t-shirts, debate whether I want to rearrange the table runners, fluff the silk scarves and straighten the bracelets yet again.

And then, as a customer appears, I smile and say, “Hello!”

General help:

Gemstone jewelry - Gemstones and their settings are delicate, they can be crushed or bent out of shape if abused. I inspect everything before I mail it, therefore receiving damaged goods is an uncommon problem. If a gemstone falls out of a setting don't panic, I can probably fix it if you have the setting (still in fairly unbent condition) and the stone (uncracked or crushed). Contact me and we can arrange details for it's repair. I can fix or match almost everything I have made, but you will be charged shipping and possibly the replacement cost for a broken setting or stone.

Beaded jewelry - If you have all the parts, I am happy to discuss the cost of having the jewelry restrung.

Haori - Haori are made from vintage silk. Please do NOT place them in your washing machine or hand wash! If you do this your haori will be ruined! If your haori is wrinkled, hang it up in a steamy room to steam the wrinkles out or use a steam iron (steam on and low heat setting). If your haori is dirty, use an apparel steamer and gently brush dirt away. Don’t get it wet! If your haori needs a lot of cleaning, the best bet is to take it to a dry cleaner that specializes in delicate silk and vintage apparel. Make sure they understand that your haori is vintage silk and not colorfast. I will not guarantee the results of any of these methods.
