1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / VISITING LONDON, NEED ADVICE! on: September 25, 2006 07:11:28 AM
Fine Folk,

I'm visiting London in early October and I was wondering if any of you would be so kind as to give me advice as to where to find good Jewelry making supply stores, Thrift stores, Vintage stores, boutiques, flea markets etc. etc. What are the cool neighborhoods?

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

2  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / I WANT A GEREN FORD TOP! on: March 06, 2006 01:04:32 PM
I want this top. NOW.

Unfortunately, $300 plus tops aren't in the cards at this particular moment. I am sure that someone with sewing expertise can explain to me in detail how I would go about sewing myself a very similar replica of this fantastically versatille top. CONSIDER IT A CHALLENGE!

Here, I'll provide you with some pictures of similar styles by the same designers to help you along

3  Illinois / Illinois: North / Looking for someone to share table with at fair on: March 04, 2006 12:26:02 PM
This company called "Shecky's" in New York City holds these big events that are sponsored by a large company and independent designers sell their goods. They'll be having one in Chicago called "Girls Night Out" and it has a guaranteed number of 1500 shoppers. I would like to sell my jewelry, Tuco and Blondie (www.tucoandblondie.com), at the event. The price tag for the table is a little high though ($600), and the company said that I could split a table, but I need to find someone to share it with. Therefore, I'm looking for another designer to share the table with me. The show is on April 6th, you can learn all about it at www.sheckys.com/gno

If anyones interested, e-mail me at Tucoandblondie@hotmail.com

Thank you!

4  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / HELP ME MAKE THIS PURSE #TWO on: March 02, 2006 11:27:32 AM
I decided that I either hate all the handbags out there today, or they are way out of my pricerange. Consequently, I am going to go to the thriftstore and buy a leather jacket today and attempt to roughly mimic this purse
I've never sewed with leather before...so I could use some tips. Also, I'm not so good as a pattern maker because I forget steps that are important, and don't realize it till I am done. SO, what steps should I go through? How do I line leather? Any help would be fabulous! Oh, you can see additional pictures of the bag at... http://haydenharnett.com/boutique/index.cgi?action=detail&style=LORCA&color=yel&view=front&tassel=no&back=http://haydenharnett.com/boutique/index.cgi

Oh, let us just stare at these bags because they are beautiful....


mmmmm, 700$ purses!

Cheers!

8  Illinois / Illinois: North / replica designer purses in chicago? on: June 21, 2005 11:16:20 AM
First and foremot, I would like to say that I recognize that the whole concept of the coveted "it" designer handbag is unfathomably stupid and shallow on several levels. That said, despite my best effort to tell myself that society has brainwashed my taste in purses, I actually like the Chloe "paddington" bag (That girl from the >terrible< spider man movies carries one around; it has a big padlock on it) and those stupid motorcycle bags (uh, like, Nicole Richie and the like seem to carry them about). Obviously, I'm not stupid enough to actually purchase the authentic version of these purses (I'm not an idiot nor do I have several grand to waste on purses). I would like to obtain "replica" versions of the bags. There are plenty of websites that offer such, but i feel uncomfortable buying anything without physically looking it over first. Furthermore, i am weary of having any of my credit card/banking information on line, even on paypal (i had a friend who had their debit card info leaked from paypal). I want to find a person/place in chicagoland to go buy the replicas, but I do not really know if there is such a place in Chicago. Does anyone know where in Chicago I can hunt down these replicas and fill my society-created-insatiable-need for shallow status symbol purses? What about china town?
P.S. at least I'm not interested in UGLY purses, right? lol
THANKS

10  Illinois / Illinois: North / Chicagoland craft fairs? on: February 17, 2005 10:50:19 AM
I am from the Chicagoland area, and I went to the DIY Craftfair last fall,(i forgot what neighborhood it was in...somewhere near wicker park?) So, I saw all the jewelry that was being sold and I thought, "Wait a minute...mine is way awesomer and original. My jewelry would of ROCKED this craftfair!" Since, I've been toying with the idea of selling my wares at a craft fair. I make kitschy jewelry and purses, I put my own felt appliques on vintage scarves, I make t-shirts, record bowls (who DOESN'T make record bowls...), I paint vintage clutches/purses, I reconstruct vintage clothing, i make cuffs... etc. etc. Does anyone know any good craftfairs that I could start at? Any tips? I go to Depaul University, and sometimes people rent a table in the student center and sell their wares...has anyone done something similar to this? Is this a good endevour?
Any other tips for selling my jewelry, period? It goes over very well with everyone i show it to, i simply do not know how to productively get started
Thanks!
