All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

The Shop the Swap (or STS) is a different kind of swap in that we start with finished items.  We use a point system in which you price items in points that you receive when you sell your shop item to another swapper.  Once you have sent your claim out , you can use those points to buy any available item from any open shop in the swap.   Like the real world, you cant spend points that you dont have (no overdraft here) and you cant hoard your points under your mattress (you must close and go shopping when you have +7 points).  

- Post a shop in this thread with at least 5 finished, handcrafted items for the other swappers to choose from.  You can also post a small amount of craft supply items at the bottom of your shop.  **Custom items can be offered, but must be finished and sent in a timely manner, so keep this in mind and only offer custom items that you can finish quickly.  Please let us know if you will be sending late.
-Handcrafted items from other people may be offered in your shop, BUT  be aware of the potential of hurt feelings when selling items made for you in other swaps.  This is a high profile swap that many people see.  Crafted items from others must be credited with the name of the creator or you will be requested to remove that item.
-Each item should have a SHORT identifiable title, description and picture.  Each item should be priced between 1 and 3 points.  Groups of items can be priced at a choice of 2 for 1 (or 3 for 1 etc).  Charge what you think is fair for your crafted item, considering time/supply cost/popularity.
-Check peoples wishlists and use the discussion thread for brainstorming any new items to offer in your shop.


-all persons new to the swap receive 3 points to spend.  This is a STS loan and you must leave with 3 points (in effect pay the loan back) for positive feedback.  
-Your shop must be open before you can spend your points in other shops.
-Remember there are no guarantees that claims will be made from your shop.
-Everytime someone claims from you, you will get whatever point price you have listed for it.  List the claim at the bottom of your shop and add the points into pending and to your points total.  You cannot spend pending points.
-Once you have sent the claim, move the points into current.  All current points are spendable so go shopping!
-When you have +7 points (a TOTAL of current and pending) you must close your shop temporarily.  Edit your shop post to put CLOSED at the top in big bold letters that people will see.
-Once you go shopping (with your current points, you may have to ship first)and spend your points down to 5 or less, you can re-open your shop.
-Each round  claims to and from you should be listed with your point tally at the bottom of your shop.  See the next post for the proper shop format.
-Points will be carried over to the next round.  You need to send a sign-up for each new round of the STS, which will occupy a separate swap slot in your profile.


-Each round will need a space in your swap profile
-Positive feedback for the previous round will be given once you have signed up/opened shop for the next round AND the new round is open in your profile. If any prior claims go missing you may be required to remake/refund the points/offer something else in your shop if you have no DC# or shipping receipt.  If you have a valid DC# or shipping receipt an angel can be arranged.

-If you wish to leave the swap, please let the organizers know.  Positive feedback will be given if you have 3 points and all your claims have been received.
-Negative feedback will be given for leaving with less than 3 points and/or not sending claims made to you.  If you wish to leave and need points, have a sale, let people know in the discussion thread, offer some supplies.  
-Spend your points down to 3 if you do not plan on continueing to the next round.  If you leave with more than 3 points, any points above 3 will go into the inflation fund if you have not sent in a sign-up by the end of the next round's signup period.  Again, reminder pm's to join will not be sent out.  You can sign up and just go shopping if you do not wish to open a shop, just let us know. These points will not be returned to you should you join the STS in a future round.  So go shopping!

-Remember that you have ONE WEEK to ship from the day you receive a claim.
- DC# are required on all claims if eligible AS PER CRAFSTER SWAP RULES; if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.   Thin items can be padded with a plastic grocery bag or something similiar to make them thick enough for a DC#.  If your item has not been received within a reasonable time (3-4 weeks domestic; 4-5 weeks international) an angel can be arranged if you have a DC# or postal receipt.  If not you will be required to remake or offer something else from your shop and resend.
-Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

-It is your responsibility to keep relevant people informed of your shop and claim status
-all claim/send/receive pms must be sent to all 3 organizers as well as to the person you are claiming from/sending to.  Please check you're outgoing pm's to ensure that everyone has received a copy!!!!!!
-Poor communication will be noted in your feedback.  This includes not informing the organizers/other swappers of claim status via the correct claim format; not posting in the discussion thread; slow signups for the next round when you have less than 3 points.
-Do join in the lively conversation on the discussion thread which can be found here:

Shop format

Name of your shop and a brief bio, your location, allergy info..

OPEN or CLOSED  <<remember to change this when you need too!!>>

-List all crafted items you have to offer, either by high point to low point, newest to oldest-however you like to organize your items.
-A good picture of your item makes it much more likely to be claimed
-Make sure every item has a SHORT recognizable title that can be used in claiming (and makes it much easier for cutting and pasting to the claims list)
-Clearly mark the price of the item (1-3 points)
-List how many of the items are available
-Once items are claimed, it is your responsibility to remove them from your shop to avoid claim confusion.  Pictures can be transferred to the gallery for each round.
-Include a brief description of the item

-Craft supply items can be listed after crafted items.  Please keep these to a  manageable amount and if you have more than a few use thumbnails for pictures.  If you put the thumbnail links together with no spaces they will show up in a line.
At the end of your shop please put your claims list and point total

Claims made from me -  <<List all claims made to your shop for this round only like this:>>
to alteredmommy  fabulous soap (2 pt)

Claims I have made -  <<List all claims that you make to other people like this>>
from lapoli fabulous roving (2 pt)

Started with: 2   <<This is how many points you start the round with>>
Pending:2           <<This is the point total of claims made to you that HAVE NOT BEEN SENT YET-once you
                               send these points get removed from pending and added to current points
Current:1            <<These are your spendable points from claims that you HAVE SENT-the point value of any
                                claims you make gets deducted from here

TOTAL: 3           <<This is the total of PENDING and CURRENT points.  When the total is +7 you must temporarily
                               close your shop and spend (using current points) down to 5 or less

A wishlist of items you would love to see in peoples shops can be included at the bottom of your shop  


Claim/Send/Receive pm format

All pms must be sent to all 3 organizers alteredmommy, RubyTuesday, loves2experiment AND the person you are claiming/sending/receiving from.  All pms must be sent in the proper format to be valid, the FIRST properly formatted claim for any item wins the claim.  

Here is an example of a claim made on January 1:
To: alteredmommyRubyTuesdayloves2experimentPhizzychick
Subject: STS 22 Claim

Send by January 8
Phizzychick to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                        -bunch of doo-dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
Cheryl DM
10 frozen solid street
My town, AB
Canada,  H0H 0H0

Here is a line by line breakdown:

TO:   <<all 3 organizers must be in this line and the person you are sending to.  We need to see all names in this line for the claim to be valid.  Make sure you use the To: space and NOT the bcc space.  Please check your outgoing message copy to see that the correct people received the pm and resend the message to everyone if anyone gets missed-this is REALLY, REALLY important and we dont mind getting copies as long as we eventually get a correct one!  Hint- write the names with quote marks around each one except the last>>
SUBJECT:  <<STS round #  Claim  OR Send OR Receive Please make sure the subject line is correct as it really helps with filing the hundreds of pms into the proper folder>>

SEND BY  <<7 days from the date that the claim was made, which is the date directly under the claim date on the calendar, include this on ALL claim/send/receive pms>>

Phizzychick to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                                  -  bunch of doo dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
<<the person you are claiming from goes first, you go second>>
<<use the brief title of the item on ONE line, please write the claim beside the swapper names (this needs to be cut and pasted to the list)>>
<<each full point claim should be written on a separate line>>
<<multiple part point claims should be written as 1 claim as above>>
your address, written as it should be for mailing

<<you can copy the original claim made to you, make sure you change the SUBJECT line.    Obviously when you send a claim, your name goes first and the person you are sending to goes second.>>

<<again you can copy the original claim, making sure you change the SUBJECT line to receive

Any personal comments or messages (I love this  thankyou etc..) needs to be put at the BOTTOM  of your message so we can see the claim info.

General Info

What is the Shop the Swap inflation fund?
This is where the extra points go.  The Shop the Swap has its own little economy and the average points per person runs about 3.5- mostly because of many swappers leaving with less/more than 3 points in earlier rounds.  The points need to stay in the swap to keep inflation down, that is why we ask that people spend down to 3 pts when leaving.  The inflation fund may be used to offset people leaving with less than 3 points; refunds for claims that have gone missing etc.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should. Is something wrong?
If it has been awhile since you made the claim or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired/attending to life in the real world when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM. Otherwise, give us time to get caught up with claims. If your claim is a few days old and not has not shown up on the list, please send us a pm inquiring about it (it may have been missed in the hundreds of pms that we get or not messaged to everyone)

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed? OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open? OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date. When in doubt, it's fine to go with what you think your status is. It doesn't hurt to include a little note in any PM's you send letting us know, just in case there is an issue. (For example, "XladyluckX just claimed my peanut butter sculpture, but your list shows my shop as closed. I claimed a couple things recently so I think I should be open and this claim should be ok.") Now, since you are the person who is the most up to date on your own point total, help us out!! Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points.  Re-open your shop when you know you are at 5 points or less. And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, go ahead and spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

Why do I have to list my claims in my shop? Aren't you keeping track of my points?
Yes! We are keeping track of your points, and in any disagreement, ours is the list that counts. But to make it easier to resolve any disagreements, we'd like to be able to compare your list of what you think you've claimed/has been claimed from you, and compare it to our list.  I do go through everyones shops on occasion to add up points and make sure were all on the same page.
Also, if you keep a running list of your claims in your shop, it makes it much easier for people to look at your shop and figure out if you are open or closed in case you havent updated recently or when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes!

If you have any further questions, please dont hestitate to pm the organizers!!!

gavagai's swap shop is


Nestlaces (clickable thumbnails), 2 points each

Gemstone eggs in a silver plated nest. The nests are about 1 1/4" across. Comes with a silver plated chain.

Yellow egg nestlace. Yellow jade?

Turquoise egg nestlace. I think the "eggs" are green aventurine.

Fused glass pendants (clickable thumbnails), 2 points each

These are newly made by me and are entirely made of glass. All of these reflect light beautifully! When you claim a piece you have the choice of me adding either a sterling silver bail and a waxed cotton cord to make a necklace or a silver plated ring base to wear the piece as a finger ring. It is hard to take good pictures of these, but here is my best try so far...

The building. With dichro glass reflecting the evening light in the windows. 5/8" x 1 1/4"

Clear & black with pink dichro. Contrasting piece, very striking! About 1" x 1 1/2".

Little Daisy in blue. About 1" x 1".

Unusual 3D piece in black & clear glass. Just over 2" high.

Favorite blue & white with pink dichro. This is one of my absolute favorites. It's got lots of depth and it really shows what a beautiful material glass is. 1 1/8" x 1 3/4"

Color pieces on black. Intriguing pattern. About 1" x 1 1/8".

Sailboat of glass. 1" x 1 5/8"

Untitled.  Smiley 1 1/8" x 1 3/4"

Black and color. It was hard to get a picture without strange reflections. This piece is solid shiny black all around and in the middle lots of colours covered with transparent glass. (1 1/8" x 1 3/8")

Space invader! Looks dirty around where the reflection is, but has been cleaned now.  Smiley (1" x 1 1/4")

Transparent blue with black lines and dichro. Lovely piece!

Purple&green with black contrast. Not a very big piece, about 1" corner to corner.

Blue cross with dichro, about 2" high.

Glass heart! Scattered colours and some beautiful dichro (the shimmering part).

needle felting kit, 2 points

This includes:
1 foam pad to use as a base when felting (approximately 7"x7", will measure...)

1 felting needle with plastic cover/case and plastic "head" for better grip.

Instructions and tips!

about 40 grams/1.5 ounces of carded wool of your choice:
 -"regular" sheeps wool in many different colours
 - merino wool in many different colours (softer but might be slightly more difficult to felt, hard to say, a matter of personal taste really, why not try both!)
 - natural wool of different breeds, different colours, some curly, you can even have some camel fleece in there (some of the natural wool is much harder to felt, since it's not as processed, discuss with me and I would recommend somehow mixing coloured and natural).

Sample kit (but you will have a chance to customize it):

Below are just a few colour examples from my stash:

Burger ring, 2 points


Adjustable finger ring (silver plated) with a polymer clay hamburger with fries on a blue china plate.

! Nessa's Shop !

I'm a 19 yo art student living in a small town in NY. I have an adorable kitten who likes to eat my roving as I'm spinning. I live in a smoking household, keep all my crafts in air tight containers and bludgeon anyone who smokes in the vicinity of my craftiness.

Custom Mary Jane Slippers! [3 pt]

Made of 100% acrylic yarn so they are machine washable! I can do any size, and nearly any color. PM me before you claim so I can make sure I have the colors you want! Here are a bunch of examples:

Hand dyed sheeps wool
2oz for 2pt
Leafy [2oz avail.]

Handmade Vegan Soaps!! [1 pt]

Tea Tree Swirl:

Hello! I'm a wife of 3 years and we have 8, 4 legged, children. They are 1 giant yellow dog, 4 crazy cats, and 3 silly ferrets. The ferrets are caged for their own safety. The dog is in the craft room but in a kennel and all craft items are kept in plastic or out of reach. Cat hair is pretty common but I am totally willing to wash/lint roll, and items you claim. We do not smoke.
(unless I set a small toaster oven fire. It's been known to happen.)
I live in the Southern USA.
3 Point Items:
Fan-stitch Shrug/bolero thing:

Made to test a pattern for someone. Is totally crocheted with Carron Simply soft so is washable and dry able in the machine. I'm about a 36 inch chest and it fits me but is fairly stretchy.

Vlyr the Fluffy White Dragon:
Vlyr was born with a touch of china in him but he doesn't feel nearly as scary as his more traditional relatives. Perhaps it's his fluffy fur instead of scales, or pastel accent colors. Vlyr likes to cuddle and is poseable as he has pipe cleaners through our his body and legs. Smiley and he even has squishy poly beads in his belly. Smiley

2 Point Items:
Custom case for your DS lite. (I can make this for your DS too I just need some measurements to ensure it will fit)
has 12 pockets for games, a flap that snaps down over top to keep them in place, and a zippered compartment in the back for extra "stuff".
This one is a prototype that does not have the flap I spoke of. Click pictures to see full view. For a picture of the version with the flap pm me.

Marisol mouse:
Knit with acrylic yarns. Body is simply soft and pink bits are harrahs yarn. Smiley My first "in the round" project! It will come with a purple ribbon aorund it's neck. Smiley

Amigurumi Alpaca or horse
I can make these in any solid color.

specify color desired. Give me 2 color choices in case I don't have the first choice on hand.

Custom beaded/felt cuff
Can be made in most simple designs. I just need the following info:
Wrist measurement:
Design: (please limit to 3 colors, if you want more than that pm me and we'll discuss it)

1 Point Items:

Custom glitter dragon:

I can make them with the wings/ears in any primary color. (red, blue, green, yellow, purple, black, white etc.)
Specify color of eyes and color or wings/ears (they will have plastic safety eyes like the second picture)

Crocheted  Cuff
Made with acrylic baby fine yarn and crocheted. This has delicate plastic pearl buttons and is really easy to fasten. It's a bit too big for my wrist and my wrist measures 7 inches:

Crocheted "Tidy Tote", approximately ??in x ??in flat bottom and ??in tall with ??in long straps.  I fell in love with this pattern, started it in Sept and finally finished it in May... but I really don't need any more bags/totes.  The yarn is a twisted cream, pink, brown (like neopolitan ice cream).

Padded Laptop Sleeve (1 pt)
Laptop sleeve (made for my old laptop, hardly used since that thing was too heavy to really be portable, I washed before taking pics and the flannel pilled in the wash, which is why it's only 1pt instead of 2), padded with several layers of fleece, and closes with velcro.  (The measurements of my old laptop as provided by the Gateway website are= 1.31 to 1.40-inches (H) 14.09-inches (W) 10.39-inches (D)... it fit quite snug into this sleeve)

open yet again!

fiber/yarn/knit things


a knit bikini top made from elann esprit (comparable to cascade fixation) a cotton and elastic blend yarn. I made this for myself, but quickly out grew it before I could even wear it once.

13" along bottom of cups
6" along inside edge of cup
14" long ties

peacocky wool ~25yds:1pt

warm, brown wool plied with thin, peacock feathers. They are spun in tightly, so they won't fall out, and don't stick out too much to give it that "novelty yarn" feel. really subtle opalescence peeks out from a rich brown wool.

"hotdog scarf":2 pt

a garter-stitch scarf knit long-ways aka hotdog style. It's knit with vintage wool, handspun merino, cascade pastaza, and hand dyed cascade eco wool. 100" long making it loopable, hangable and snugglable


CUSTOM 1" badges! 5 for 1pt

give me a theme and I can use epehmera from mags and such to make them or send me images to print. I have a TON of fashion mags, craft mags, etc. If you give me a color or feeling or something even I can make a nice little matching set.
let me know if you need a bigger amount and we can work it out!

swallow necklace:1pt

hand colored charms on silver plated chain.

when worn the swallows rest right on collar bones.

The somewhat eclectic shop of various crafty things!

Location: Canada until mid-June, then GERMANY!  Grin
Stats: Pet-free (although I wish it weren't!), smoke-free
Bio: I'm a university student specializing in Behavioral Neuroscience. Not surprisingly, I have a strong nerdy streak. However, I try to balance this out with a healthy dose of creative expression through crafting and theater. Smiley

3 points

Loopy Bracelet 3 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off. (If I have all of the bead colors that I need already, I might make it 2 points)

Example of a loopy bracelet in ice blue, pearl, and silver-lined clear beads:

2 points

Loom Bracelet 2 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off. I can do essentially any pixelated design, although if it's really complex, I might make it 3 pt for the mental effort. Below are two examples:

Punk Princess (Small Skirt - stretch waistband)

Crocheted Cowboy Hat 3 pt SALE - 2 pt
Received from kidcompassion approximately 2 years ago. It's a beautiful hat and I fell in love with the idea of a crocheted cowboy hat.

Donniesgirls Swap Shop

Current status: CLOSED

About My Shop
Texas based shop.  Smoke free, although I do have a cat.  She is afraid of the sewing machine so stray hairs shouldnt be a problem.  Smiley


3 Points

Custom Pieced Placemats - set of 4

The brown/blue placemats below were claimed in a prior STS, but I can make a new set if you're dying for your own.   Cheesy  PM me any other color choices you're interested in prior to claiming, so I can scope the fabric shops for just the right thing.  Or the three color combos below are readily available (spring greens on the left, blue greens in the middle, batik on the right).  

Placemat example:

Readily Available Colors:      

Custom Aprons

I am offering custom halter, reversible butcher, or reversible half apron styles.  Please PM me the colors/motif you're interested in prior to claiming, so I can scope the fabric shops for just the right thing.

Examples of halter styles:

Link to a Christmas one I did for another swap: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281638.msg3198443#msg3198443

Example of reversible butcher style:


2 Points

Copper Seed Bead Necklace - 2 points.  


1 Point

Wine Glass Candle - 1 point each (8 available).

Chain stitch necklace 1 point.  Made with blue bamboo silk yarn.

Herb Markers 3 for 1 point.  These are made with polymer clay & old dry cleaning hangers.  They are colored with blue pigment & silver acrylic paint and then sealed.  Please let me know which herbs/plants you would like they work best with plants that have a name with 8-10 characters or less.  Also note that the turnaround time may be affected if we are having humid weather in Dallas because the sealer won't set properly.  


Lavender sachets - set of 2 for 1 point.  Satin & Velveteen (2 sets available) or Cotton Botanical (6 sets available).  Note the Cotton Botanical may vary some as the fabric is a large botanical print (18" repeat or so), but the colors in the picture are true.


Wildflower Return Address Labels, 5 sheets return address labels (30 labels per sheet) for 1 point.  Set has a variety of 5 different wildflowers taken by me here in Texas.  My spring allergies ought to be good for something!   Cheesy  

 The flowers:          

Every Day "Eco Friendly" Dinner Napkins.  Set of 6 for 1 point.  They are casual (one sided) & each one is 12" x 12."  The fabrics I have available are below.  If there is a motif or color that you are looking for & I don't have it, please PM me.  

Color choices available are shown below, left to right (yellow strawberries, cherries, brown paisley, blue w/brown flowers, Asian flower print, medallions, sailboats, tan w/white flowers, tropical), palm trees, & chickens.   Note that the  yellow with the strawberries is a lemon-ey yellow (unlike my picture).  


Kitchen towels - 1 point each.  Each towel has a yummy recipe appliqud, similar to below.  Washable.  Please specify Cabernet Brownies, Poppyseed Madeleines, Jen's Blondies, Lavender Madeleines, St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake, or Cabernet Jelly.  The colors may be different than below, so if you have a color request, please let me know.  Or, if you would like a particular recipe appliqud, I can do that too.


 Wine grapes cell phone charm - 1 point.  I didn't make this, but it was made by a friend of my cousin's.  I think it's cute, but I'm just not a cell phone charm person.

Unfortunately, I don't have the fiber content or washing instructions on any of the fabric, but I'll try to describe the fabric as best I can.

3 Points

Flat Rate Box of Crate & Barrel Outlet Remnants.  The C&B Outlet by my office sells remnants by the pound, so this is subject to availability.  Please let me know if you have a color preference & I will try to accommodate if possible, but no guarantees.  Right now, it has been well picked through, so there are a lot of fabrics with stripes.  Examples of C&B remnants Ive gotten:


Blue fabric - 5 yards for 3 points.  There is a total of 10 continuous yards.  Each 5 yard increment is a total of 3 points.  It has a very subtle herringbone type weave.  The picture makes it look like denim, but it really isn't anything like it - it's more of a royal blue color with a heavy challis feel.

2 Points


1 Point

Fabric Scraps by the Pound - 1 pound for 1 point.  All fabrics are cotton or cotton/poly blends.  

Sewing patterns (never used, any 2 for 1 point).  

Wool Ease - 2 skiens for 1 point.  Choose either Forest Green Heather or Wheat

Pink seed beads - 1 point.  As you can see, I started a necklace out of these a looooong time ago.  I lost the pattern (its like the copper necklace above) & lost interest, though, so here are the beads & the partial necklace for whoever wants them.


Black sheer - 2 yards (44" w) for 1 point.

Horoscope silky fabric - 1 3/4 yards (60"w) for 1 point.

All Things Pink & Dinky!!!
OPEN for Business!!!

1/4 point items:

Tie-dyed shirt- .25
This was an experiment. Super soft Old Navy Perfect fit tee, size medium. It's a very flattering cut...scoop neck and slightly poofy miny sleeves

1/2 point items:

Rope Lantern earrings -.5
These are super fun. Each one is about the size of a kumquat.(Gunmetal hooks)

Heart Earrings -.5These turned out so nicely. The hearts have a nice heft to them and are salvaged from a necklace I got at a department store. Each heart is about the size of a dime.

Smokey Blue Flower Earrings - .5

1 Point Items

PANTYLINERS!!!!!!! One for 1 point, Three for 2 points, Five for 3 points
These are made of five layers of 100% cotton flannel for ultra softness and absorbancy. They will have snaps on the wings when you receive them (I was just in a hurry to take pictures). The layout of the fabric may differ, but I do take great care to make sure that as much of the design shows as possible. If you want more than one of the same pantyliner, just pm me because I have multiples of most of them. Please choose by number: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23

In case the picture isn't clear the top left is gardening boots, second from left is a cherry print. The bottom right reminds me of like Bazooka gum cartoon strips.

backs (click for bigger image):

backs (click for bigger image):

It's hard to tell, but the frog fabric is kind of blue-green with a pale yellow liner. And the camo actually has dinosaurs on it. #17 and #19 are no longer available.

backs (click for bigger image):

Cat and Mouse Wreath-1
Handmade but not by me. I picked it up at a yard sale. It's about the size of a large plate.

Needlebooks- 1 point each

Here is a group shot. Each one has four felt pages for all your needle-holding needs. Some have an elastic closure and some have ribbons to tie them closed. All are lined with a coordinating fabric that is different from the front. Click on the small pictures to see a close up and the interior fabrics. Bears, Woodland Creatures on Khaki, Red Dots, and Woodland Creatures on Pink have all been spoken for.


Chifunky Pincushion-1
Made from an Anthropologie egg cup and vintage fabric. Super cute and last one available!

Watering can pincushin- 1 point Supercute! About the size of a small tea cup. Comes with the pictured pins.

Small antique teacup pincushion -1Comes with the pictured coordinating pins

Arm band wallet-1
Made from waterproofed cotton so it won't absorb sweat. Velcro closure. One-size-fits-all adjustable strap. Lined with pink fabric. Perfect for times when you don't want to carry a purse.

2 Point Items

Silver Heart Necklace -2
The heart pendant is real silver (it was given to me years ago on a chain by an old boyfriend...but now it is polished, paired with pink, and ready for a new life Smiley) It really turned out beautifully and would make a gorgeous gift. The heart is framed by four Swarkovski crystals. Lobster claw closure. If it's for a gift, let me know and I will make the packaging extra special.

(BTW, that is not a weird spot on the heart. It's just the way the light is hitting the etchings. You can see the etchings on the heart better in some of the thumbnails.)

More shots:

Wooden Bracelet with Vintage Ribbon Trim- 2

Additional View:

Vintage scrolled chair pincushion-2
I got this chair at a yard sale and added some padding and changed the cushion because the one on it was kind of grungy. It appears to be handmade from an old coke can. It is absolutely adorable and a wee bit delicate. The fabric on the cushion is also vintage.

So you can see the side scrollwork and get a perspective on size

3 Point Items

Jar of Whimsies - 3 points
This is bursting with fun stuff. Guaranteed not to disappoint!!!!! Among the many, many goodies are a new wooden stamp, a necklace, a cool glass bead from Venice, a teddy bear, miniature flower pots, tiny handmade items by fellow Craftsters, one of my reversible keychains, vintage ribbon, chip beads, a felted flower barret, and many more surprises!

Note: If this is claimed by someone outside of the US, I will put the items in something plastic instead of the glass jar to cut down on shipping, but I'll throw in a few extra whimsies to make up the difference Smiley

So you can see all 360 degrees:

Wooden Vintage Purse- 3 points (can only ship to US)
I bought this about ten years ago at a flea market and have enjoyed it so much. But seeing as I haven't used it in several years and it is too awesome to go to waste, I thought I'd let it go to its next owner. I hate to do it but I have got to limit this heavy item to those with a US address only.

Here is the back. You can see where the two pieces are glued. But it has held together fine for many many years.


Loom and bag of loom thingies-1

Pottery tools-1 pt.for all
These are the tools I used for my ceramics classes so they are not new but they are in great shape and are everything you need to get started throwing pottery.

Seed beads- 3 for one point
The turquois and red are a bit bigger than seed beads and the cobalt blue are seed beads.
These are a great deal!!

Magnifying Glass-2
I got this at the Discover Channel Store a long time ago and never really used it. Click the thumbnails for additional views.

Trims- 2 points for lot
Most of these are over one yard and some are two yards. In this lot there are two unopened packages, including a daisy lace trim and a velvet trim embellished with beads. The leather cords are salvaged from various things so they are not as long.

Vintage Travel Stickers- 2 points per box
These are fantastic for all kinds of projects. Each box includes 20 large stickers. Choose: Wings of the World (vintage airline ads/logos) or Exotic Destinations (vintage hotel ads/logos). These are reproductions of actual old ads from around the world.

Wings of the World:

Exotic Destinations:

This is made fresh by me.  No premade lotion base here.

Made from 100% Hand Spun Wool.  Stuffed with raw sheep wool and Organic Catnip & cat mint (just picked and dried by me).

Claim as:
Purple Meesker (1)  CLAIMED
Orange Meesker (1)[/b]

Milk Soaps (cold processed using 100% fresh milk) 1 pt

Stress Relief
Ground calendula petals inside with a sprinkling of petals on the top.
quiets the mind and invigorates the spirit!
Calming blend of Sage & Lavender with just a touch of Peppermint and Star Anise.

Citrus Basil
Citrusy and floral all in one.  My current personal favorite.

Cucumber Melon   NEW! 04/06/09
This screams SUMMER!!

Lavender Vanilla  
Soothing Lavender with a kick of vanilla - and not your ordinary vanilla either!  This is Black Vanilla with a hint of Patchouli in it!!

Please note, the soaps do not look the same as they do in the picture.  The purple has faded to a greyish-lavender and the dark cream is now brown.  Still smells wonderful!!!


Dragon's Blood  NEW! 03/02/09
It's moody, warm and very appealing with touches of amber, incense and a tiny hint of patchouli making the layering of this fragrance something special. (as described on FO suppliers website).

This fragrance colors the soap to a dark purplish brown

Pepper Zest  
Lemongrass, Lime, Sweet Orange and Black Pepper essential oils.  Swirled with yellow, green & orange.

Lemongrass & Sage
This isn't overpowering in either lemon or sage, but combines both into a fresh clean scent.  

Sweet Pea
Not the prettiest soap out of my soap kitchen, but the sweet scent of spring is wonderful!  I had difficulty with this soap turning into soap-on-a-stick so had to hot process it.

superhooker's Den of Iniquity!!


I'm Heather...I live in the Detroit, Michigan area (USA).  There are no smokers in or around my house, but I do have an adorable black haired dog who loves to cuddle yarn (he has good taste!), so there may be a stray hair here or there.

I will take special orders for knitted baby items.  Let me know what you're interested in, and we'll work it out!

3 pt. items:

flat rate boxes are US only, sorry!  It costs too much to send this stuff outside the US.
flat rate box of ephemera--all sorts of stuff.  Papers, vintage, pictures, stickers, you name it.  I have 2 available. (3pts. each)

flat rate box of cotton fabrics.  These will be all sorts, but nothing so small as to be considered a "scrap".  I have 2 1 available. (3pts. each)

apparel fabric flat rate box.  (picture coming soon!)

mini iron for pressing seams.  I bought it, and then my mom got me a nice full sized iron, so I never used this little one.  Very handy for quilting and sewing!

grommet/eyelet set.  Includes a heavy duty grommet setter, with instructions and a bag of grommets, and also a pack of 3 unopened eyelet setters.  

2 pt. items:

Bizarregoyles-DIY toys 2 points each
These are DIY designer toys, like Dunny, only its supposed to be a gargoyle.

Pokeball hat!  This hat is sized for a toddler through middle school child.  I tried it on Alexander (he's 9) and it fit nice and snug, like a beanie.  On a smaller child, it would be nicely sized to cover ears.

Homemade fudge!  one full batch (somewhere between 1 pound and 1.5 pounds) = 2points

Homemade peanut brittle!  one full batch (about 1.5 pounds) =2 points

Homemade cinnamon brittle!  (awesome brittle, contains no nuts--if you need to see an ingredient list, I can pm one to you)  one full batch (somewhere between 1-1.5 pounds) = 2points

Homemade Rice Krispies Treats! I'll make a big batch, equal to about 1.5 large pans = 2points

Food items can only be sent within the US, to ensure freshness!  I'll send food items out within one day of making them, and I'll ship priority.  Please remember that if you live in a really hot area, fudge will probably melt on the way to you!

1 point items:

blue/white striped knit fabric.

(photo coming soon!)

smaller stamp sets:

set 1= winter party set

stamp pad set.  includes 1 really big black pad, a brown pad, and a pad that has silver/gold/bronze

glass paints set.  includes 3 bottles of glass paints, and a bottle of glaze for glass and ceramics.

Laces and notions!  all these are 1point each, or take 3 for 2 points:

black lace set.  a bit more than 1 yard of each

red lace.  roughly 8yds.

vintage notions set.  there are snaps, hook/eyes, and some other stuff too!

burgundy lace.  roughly 8yds.

colorful elastic set.  these are really nice elastics, they remind me of bra strap elastics.

colorful vintage zipper set.  

White elastic set.  This elastic is not very wide, but it is really good, strong elastic.

Books!  1 point each!--US only, sorry!

in this picture, crocheted ponchos and Knitters Lib

in this picture, "The New Crochet" and "From Knit to Crochet"

in this picture, "Wonder-under Handmade Gifts" and "Aleene's Prizewinning Crafts"

in this picture, "Re-creative"

in this picture, "The New Beadwork" and "The Urban Knitter"

Hand dyed onesies:
These are all dyed in a low water immersion way, that makes really cool looking color variations.  Sometimes the dye colors seperate and make really neat and unexpected combinations.  These are all 1 point each, claim with color and size.  
(for example: chartreuse, 24 mo)

hot pink/chartreuse/browns and greens, size 12 mo, gerber

hot pink/browns and greens/light pink, size 24 mo, carters brand

chartreuse/blues, size 24 mo, carters brand

knitted dish cloths.  I have made 2 pink, 1 in greens/blues, and 2 rainbow (only one shown, but there is another)  I can make these in other colors, just pm me!

Hand dyed silk scarf.  oranges and greens.  measures 13 inches by about 56 inches.

hand sewn felt fancy goldfish:

onesie, size 6-9 mo, on a Gerber shirt, which I've heard run small:

.5 points each:

Farm grown loofahs!  These are nice and big!  they are great for the shower, or you can slice them and use them in soap making, for exfoliating soaps.  .5 points each.

ZINES!!!  I've been collecting zines for a while now, and I've got a ton that should be passed on to new readers.  for .5points, you'll get a selection with at least 10 zines.  I've got 7 of these batches made up.

little metal trashcans with flip up tops .5 pt each

two tatting shuttle thingies  both for .5 pt

fun detroit license plates 2 for .5 pt

Fun tape!  Light blue duct style tape(2 big rolls), and dark blue translucent packaging tape (1 roll) (on hold)  and orange packaging translucent tape (1 roll)  .5 points each, or take all 5 rolls for 2 points.

hand sewn star ornaments, choose red, plaid, or linen:

hand sewn kittie fortune cookies.  Pink ones shown, but I can make any color, so if you have a color preference, just let me know in your claim.  These are stuffed with catnip.:

kids craft kit to make a memory tray (says best for kids 4 and up...but I've made this with my kiddo, and basically you'll need to help the kid hammer, and then they can decorate and have fun):

FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE!!!   pick a couple of these thingies, if you want!

There are cosmetic pouches, "Cars" the movie notepads, rock and roll hair clips and hair ties, a pez dispenser, a jeweled calculator, a suncatcher, and some plastic cocktail rings!

All items will be making their way to you from Southern California!
Please make your claims as full points.  All small thumbnails should be clickable links.
Thanks for checking out my shop!

Please feel free to submit a request for a custom order and I'll see what I can do!

2 Point Items

5"x7" Original Photography (matted to 8"x10") (2)
These are all my original photographs taken from my portfolio.  I have matted these 5"x7" prints so they are ready for framing.  The mats are signed by me.  Please specify the title of the print in your claim.

Tequila SunsetThe Guide
Standing Tall
Childhood MemoriesLeft Behind

Bohemian Dream Bag (3) (2)
This was knit by me and then lined with a cotton fabric.  It's a fun and unique medium sized purse.

Men's Fingerless Mitts (2)
I knit these up using Paton's SWS and while I find that yarn to be lovely and soft, my husband found the yarn to be itchy so he can't wear them.  Perfect for the guy in your life who doesn't have sensitive hands.  Careful...these will felt and should be handwashed gently!

Raspberry Lemonade Yarn (2)
This is yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater that I then dyed using Kool Aid.  Fiber content is 35% Wool / 35% Acrylic / 30% Cotton.  It's 100 yards and is approx DK/Worsted weight.  There is one knot in the skein.

1 Point Items

Little Bug Blanket (1)
This is a commercially made fleece blanket that I added a crocheted edging to.  The pattern is little bugs and the edging was done in a cream colored acrylic yarn.  It's 30"x30".

Baby Blanket w/ Crochet Edging (1)
This is the same style as the Little Bug Blanket that I had listed.  It's a teal fleece baby blanket that I added a scalloped crochet edging to in cream acrylic yarn.  It measures 30"x30".

Pillar Candle Base (1) (U.S. claim only please - these are kind of heavy)
These were made using marbles from the centerpieces of my wedding, fixed onto glass candle bases.  You have the choice of frosted green marbles or clear green marbles (candle pictured here not included!).  Please specify frosted or clear in your claim.

Purple Beanie (1)
This is a fuzzy, soft basic beanie in a pretty purple acrylic yarn.  

Scented Eye Pillows (1)
Inside of each pillow is rice, lightly scented with essential oils.  These can also be used either hot or cold.  For heat therapy, pop the pillow in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.  For cold therapy, place the pillow in a sealed bag and leave in the fridge or freezer until chilled.  Please specify blue, green or yellow in your claim.

0.5 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Coffee Cup Cozy (0.5)
This was knit by me with cotton yarn in fun colors.  The cozy should stretch to fit a larger coffee cup as necessary and can be machine washed.  I also have the cozy shown below in a darker blue/teal color (picture to follow shortly)  Please specify Dk Blue or Lt. Blue in your claim.

Crochet Baby Booties (0.5)
These are adorably cute and I give them to friends as baby shower gifts all the time.  I have an excess inventory though!  Please specify color in your claim.

Pink & White (0-3mo)
Tan (3-6mo)

Fuzzy Scarf (0.5)
Knit up with fun fur with large needles to give a nice soft and fuzzy scarf.  The scarves were designed to be shorter but with a lot of stretch due to the open stitch.  Please specify lavender or grey stripes in your claim

Golden Dangle Earrings (0.5)
I've been playing with learning wire wrapping and this is my prototype pair!  They are glass beads on gold wire - very cute and delicate.  

Rustled Up Socks Knitting Pattern (1) (0.5)
I designed this sock pattern in the fall, but the lacy leaf design would be a great spring/summer sock too!  This is for a pdf copy of the pattern that would be sent to you via e-mail.

0.25 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Fuzzy Pouch (0.25)
This fuzzy pouch was knit using a white acrylic yarn and some self-striping fun fur.  It's lined and has a button closure.  My husband's baby sister uses the one I made her for the tooth fairy!   Cheesy

Photo Notecards (0.5) (0.25)
These are photo notecards that I bought as a big lot at a garage sale.  I can't quite date them, but they're all hand-mounted and the photos are by a local (Los Angeles) photographer.  Each claim is for 2 complimentary cards with matching envelopes.  Please specify the title of the cards in your claim.  

Snowy ViewsForests
Silhouette LandscapesUmbrellas

Points noted next to items.  Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Mill End Roving (2) for 3oz
When I was first learning to spin, I ordered 3lbs of the brown tone mill end roving from Sheep Shed Studio.  I've still got a ton and would love to destash some so I can buy other roving!  I have over a lb available.  There is mohair in this, but I've found that it's pretty easy to separate.  The colors remind me of smores!

Mystery Yarn (0.25 pts)
I'm not sure where I got this or what exactly the type of yarn is.  Would probably work best for home decor type items.

2 Sailor Girl Vintage Notecards (0.25 pts)
Sweet image of a sailor girl with a nautical line-drawing behind her.  This is for 2 blank notecards with envelopes.  Perfect for paper crafting - would make a really cute notebook or scrapbook page theme.

The smaller photos are all clickety-clicks to larger images.

All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle.

Crafted Items


Steampunk Butterfly Brooch - (2)
Vintage watch movement with rubies!!!

Mother and Child Cameo Necklace - (2)
Very intricate cameo with lots of detail. I'll attach a jump ring and an antiqued silver necklace before mailing.

Flower Sprite Cameo Necklace - (2)
Very intricate cameo with lots of detail. I'll attach a jump ring and an antiqued gold necklace before mailing.

Handknit bag - (2)
Colors are showing a little off on my screen. What is showing up as blue in the photo is actually more of a purple color. The other colors are pretty accurate, though. This is a roomy bag with space for lots of stuff.


Blue Flower Cameo Ring - (1)
Ring base is sterling silver plated and is adjustable. Can go from roughly a size 4.5 up to a size 10.5.

Peru Doors notecards - (1)
Set of six 5"x7" white notecards with envelopes. The photos are professionally printed and are 4"x6". Great for you or for a gift!

Filigree pendant with vintage watch movement - (1)
The watch movement is a teeny, tiny bit off level on this piece, so it's just one point. Comes with an antiqued gold necklace.

Mini-bookmarks - (1) each
Bookmarks are 3.5" tall, so they're great for both soft- and hardcover books. Contain Swarovski crystals for some sparkle! The first photo shows the shape and length of the bookmark (which is the same for all of them), and the subsequent photos show the different charms and crystals.

Bat, Gecko



Happy Buddha memory bracelet - (1)

Antique Guns Earrings - (0.5)

Black cross memory bracelet - (0.5)
Glass pearls, metal findings and a cross charm with crystals.

Here Piggy Piggy Pendant - (0.5)

!calluna’s Shop!
Direct from the California Redwoods to you! All items guaranteed to be 100% free of banana-slugs!

Grin Closed! See you in...July?

I have a dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy and moving furniture around right now, so pardon stray hairs...No smoking.

For 1 point:

double sized half-apron - vintage, hence not made by me. Pockets on both sides.

magnetic mail holder - hard plastic, altered surface. Rescued from its earlier life as an ugly early-80s Avon item with a bland cutesy neighborhood on the front. Now it's got a metallic goldish finish on the visible portions, and lots of embellishment (mail-related) all over the place. There is a small area partitioned inside for pens and such, and the whole thing has a depth of about 1.5 inches. It has magnets on the back so it can sit on the fridge, and it also has holes for nails if it would go better on your wall.

recon’d vintage children’s textbook to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro children’s theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.

Journaling prompts in a box - 50+ prompts for journaling, or words for random ATC theme inspiration. I have collected various styles of prompts and printed them all on cardstock, and will stuff as many as will fit into an Altoids tin or little wooden box (your choice), which will be decorated however you like.
I can do any number of these. Goes great with a journal, incidentally...

Vinyl record notebook - standard LP sized record cut down to this size. I have different kinds of paper and can fill it up however you like.

crocheted kerchief beautifully made by farmgirljane. I absolutely love it but somehow the shape of my head and my copious large hair don't allow it to sit right when I'm wearing it.

Handbound book made by a friend, not by me. Ribbons on spine, 6 sewn signatures, hardbound with paper covering.

Asian-design accordian book, store-bought but probably still hand-made. Hardbound with metallic fabric covering and blank paper label on front. Off-white nice blank paper inside; tan paper with gold flecks on first and last pages.

For 1/2 a point:

bright book with postcard pocket: This was an experiment; hence the bright wonky colors (wonky to me, maybe not wonky to you). Elastic loop on the inside for holding pens, and flip-up pocket for storing postcards or whatnot. Pages are a basic glue binding, with mixed paper and some random retro clipart.

Barbie pasties! Not pasties for Barbie, pasties for you (or other recipient) with Barbie on them. Technicolor images of vintage Barbies from a 1960s craft magazine, decoupaged on cardstock base, backed with vinyl and sealed to discourage deterioration. Off-white and yellow lace trim on the outer edge, with a bow made from the lace on the bottom of each. Clear iridescent sequins dotted around the outer surface. No tassels on the end and no special emphasis on the nipples...Though, if you have some Barbie shoes, it would be awesome if you made tassels with those! I can't find any, myself.

set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons:

- x-stitch Amelia Earhart quote made by Craftster kiden2, with fabric backing/border

- recycled yarn, salvaged from an ugly sweater (100% alpaca) I unraveled and navajo-plied into a 2-colored new life. Very small yardage, and not the best work ever, with knots and very short pieces hanging off of the yarn...Maybe for something that's going to be felted?

Scrap records: Set of 9 solid vinyl records with retro-print scrapbook paper covering one side. There's a hole punched at the edge of each if you want to hang them up, but binding them together into a "record-book" didn't work. On the back side the paper leaves a blank pattern where circular images can be placed if desired (such as the one in the lower right-hand corner of 2nd picture). I had this idea but couldn't figure out what to do with it, so I'm offering them now to you.


2 points

set of 3 1980s "Collectors' Showcase" magazines. These are SUCH cool magazines, like walking through a quirky antique mall on paper! At least half the images are in color. I haven't ripped any pages out of them; IMO they're too enjoyable in themselves to cut apart for ephemera, and that's saying a lot. Priced high because I'm hesitant to part with them!  Smiley If you're interested in one specifically, We can make a deal for just that one.

1 point

Old-fashioned kitchen label fabric - It's 3 pieces sewn together to make a tablecloth, but it could be so much more than a tablecloth...about 2 sq yards total.

Adorable doggie fabric, about 1 sq yard, which bkrenning sent me in the OWS (thank you!). non-stretchy, sort of a polyester-nylon mix, I think.

2 blank 6x6 inch, stretched canvasses, still wrapped in original packaging. I can also throw in another that has already been painted on, if you want to gesso over it.

cut and marked quilt pieces for a double wedding ring pattern quilt. - A swap-meet find. Vintage fabric in various colors and prints, with the original templates in case you want to substitute some of the pieces with different fabric. I'm hand-washing all of it before sending.

flat-rate box stuffed with paper/ephemera
. Must downsize, so let me know what you like and i'll send it. Lots of vintage stuff and odd randomness. 1 more available.

20 Edward Gorey postcards - some are hole-punched on the side, but they're all blank on the back still.

half a point

Dover book - "Antique Fashion Paper Dolls of the 1890s" - MISSING THE ACTUAL DOLLS, only the costumes. So glue a picture of your face on there, and you're set! The costume images are more-or-less Barbie-size.

7 rolls of days of the week stitckers in 3 languages, apparently used in food service industry? Might be good in a daily journal

Foam alphabet stamps - Making Memories' "gabby" font. upper and lower case with some punctuation marks, and largest letters are about 1.5 inches tall. Image is here:

Several tubes of partially used oil paints, mainly earth tones. Can be used for hand-tinting black-and-white photos, too.

approx 1 yd of Wonder Under with instructions. Several available.

pack of Prismacolor watercolor pencils

pack of Prismacolor colored pencils

vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.

sandwich baggie full of dried lavender buds (US only)

quarter-point items

Small green eyelets and eyelet extras - includes different colors of that butterfly eyelet, and a bunch of those wreaths (which are made to go with the green eyelets) and different colors of "Boo!" -- these are kept in place on a page by attaching an eyelet through the middle hole.

book "Recipes for Surfaces: Decorative Paint Finishes Made Simple", by Mindy Drucker and Pierre Finklestein. It's a big one, 255 pages! http://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Surfaces-Decorative-Finishes-Simple/dp/0671682490/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1214287833&sr=11-1

butterfly mould: 3 butterfly shapes in hard, thin plastic that's kinda brittle, with wooden supports nailed underneath the mould for support. I tried making wax-tarts with this mould but the shapes are a little too shallow.

Adhesive 1-inch bar pin backs value pack. Approx 50 remaining in the package.

classic weird ephemeral goodie: Michael Jackson sheet music book! Even better, it's for electric keyboard.  Roll Eyes Includes songs up through his early-'90s "Man in the Mirror" era. Grin EE-hee!

burgundy felt (craft quality). about 2 yds.

- bandage rubber stamp

Dover book - "Mosaic and Tesselated Patterns, and How to Create Them". 64 pages

Dover book - "Isometric Perspective Designs, and How to Create Them". 52 pages

3 unopened packs of purple Rit fabric dye

Andy Warhol magnet - received in a Craftster swap (not handmade), about the size of a business card. If you want, I'll include a similarly cheeky magnet of the same size that has a group of 50s housewives and says, "Don't tell the guys, but we RUN this fuckin place". Just let me know.  Smiley

Take one of these items for FREE with your purchase (please request specifically):

Cat toy - They look kinda like this, but a little fancier as I keep adding stuff to them. Made with clear tubing, wire, beads and misc findings like bells, feathers, yarn and ribbon.

- VERY old peel-off erasers for "drafting film" (I don't know what that is)--they are so old they're stuck together! Probably 5 of them in the box.

- battery-powered christmas tree lights, 10 lights on the strand. Battery pack requires 2 "C" batteries.

- images/ephemera – give me a theme and some likings and I’ll include some in the package

- 2 knit sweater arms (100% wool) for felting -- one arm is bright multiple colors and the other has had the color discharged and is now various shades of purple.

- bag of pinecones from redwood trees - They're no bigger than acorns and my yard is covered with them because I live in a redwood belt. I can only send these within the U.S. because of international shipping regulations.

- baggie full of beer/ale bottle caps, not your usual kegger brands

thank you for shopping!
