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.  To make a sale you may need to adjust your prices or offer new crafted items/supplies.
-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.


-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 it is your decision whether you will replace the item or have me arrange an angel
-You are responsible for signing up and opening your shop for the next round by the 15th of the month if you have under 3 points.  If we have not heard from you by then, temporary negative feedback will be given.

-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 (this includes NOT sending in a signup before the end of the signup period) 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 15th 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 CRAFTSTER 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:   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=365871.0

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) in whole numbers only please-while you can list things for .25 or .5, there has to be enough of the items so people can make a whole number claim
-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 the current 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, lapoli, 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: alteredmommylapoliloves2experimentperson you are claiming from
Subject: STS 38 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 moose eating my yard 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>>

person you are claiming from 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)>>
<<claims must be made in whole points, if claiming a number of items listed as fractions of points you need to claim enough to add up to a whole point>>
<<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 about customs and holding claims  <<<<please read!!
Putting items on hold in your shop is up to your own discretion.  Only items that are currently listed in your shop can be put on hold.  Holds should only be accepted when your shop is open, if a shop is closed and you are itching to claim something please pm the shop owner and ask that they let you know when they reopen so you can claim.  Custom items should be posted and reserved on hold for the person you made them for, then they can submit a formal claim.  Please do not ask people via private message to hold items for you until you can submit a proper claim; this is not an acceptable way around the "first properly formatted claim wins the item" rule.  And as always please be reasonable about the time you expect someone to hold an item for you.

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!!!

Patterns are all intact and pages barely looked through. My mom bought this for me but apparently fat girls can't be chic because patterns only go up to size L (10-12). I got PO'd and didn't even read any pages after seeing that.

Welcome to the Laughing Lark! Open!


I live in a non-smoking home with my hubby, three boys, three goldfish and a super fluffy tomcat with attitude. I do try to keep Seymour out of my crafts.  Smiley
Every small pic is a clicky-clicky link to a bigger image. More items coming soon!

Purple glass cuff bracelet (1 point)

Clear, purple and gold ornaments (1 point)


Long necklaces with singed flower accent. Wear with the flower off to one side. No clasps, they just slip over your head. The purple ones are both long enough to be doubled up.
Long flower necklace #1 (1 point)

Long flower necklace #2 (1 point)

Long flower necklace #3 (1 point)

Long flower necklace #4 (1 point)

Happy heart necklace (.5 points) Turquoise heart pendant and cheerfully colored beads. Three of the same necklace available. Its about 22 long.

Black and pink flower cascade necklace/earrings (1 point)) The beads are glass, and the earring wires are surgical steel.

A bunch of beady things ( 1 point) Things I made playing around with beads and wire.

 Apple charms ( 1 point) Made by me. They would make a cute necklace.

Scarab beads and a pendant (.5 points) Long ago, I made one of these into a pendant. You can see the direction the beads are to be threaded by looking at the pendant. I think these were made in Egypt. They are some kind of white clay or stone that is carved, and a glossy turquoise-colored glaze covers them.

 Pendants # 1 (.5 points)

Pendants #2 (.5 points)

CraftAddiction's Shop

I live in a small town in Iowa. I have a small dog, who doesn't shed.
I can do custom items. If there is anything you want crocheted, just let me know. If an item says "Custom" next to it, that means you aren't getting the exact item. It is a picture of an item I made for something/someone else. I can get it done in the one week requirement. If you have any color preferences, just let me know. My items are not made with young kids in mind. If you are claiming something for a young child, please let let me know so I don't use any items they shouldn't have (like safety eyes or weights).

Get all Christmas stamps listed for 1 point!


Market Bag - 1 pt

Other views:

Should be very sturdy, as it is make out of twine. Bread not included  Wink

Square - .5 pt

A little under 12"

Baby Blanket - 2 pt

It is hard to see the color in the pic. It is a light baby pink. The size is about 22 x 30.

Baby Pinafore - One of these or custom - 2 pt each or 2 for 3 pts
For 0-3 months. These are open in the back so you don't need to go over baby's head. There is a button in the back. If you don't want it open, just let me know and I can sew it up. Or I can make a new one, and work it in a round, so it will be closed without a seam. I can do it in other colors too.
Soft Red: Sold, I can make another.

Baby Pink:

Seal - This one or custom - 1 pt

Oreo Tape Measure - This one or custom - .5 pt


Large Christmas Bell Stamp - 1 pt

This is a large stamp at 4"x4". It would be great for making Christmas cards or stamping on presents. The lines are only there because it isn't mounted yet. Once you mount it (like on an acrylic block), they will go away. If you don't use acrylic blocks, I can mount it on wood for half a point. Sorry I don't have a better color to show the stamp. I like carving stamps. I don't use them, so I only have a few stamp pads.

Christmas Stamps 1 set (8 stamps) for 2 points

The lines around the stamps are because they aren't mounted. You can mount them yourself or I can do it for you. I charge 1 point to mount them. I can mount them on wood or I can use static cling foam and send an acrylic block so you can use 1 block for hundreds or stamps.

Hand carved Stamps - Custom - .5 point for 1 stamp

Let me know if you want them mounted or not (no charge for wood mounting). If it you want something else carved, just PM me.

Mario Scarf - Custom - 2 pts

The last image is horrible, but it gives you an idea of length. If you want it longer, or shorter, just let me know. I can do the scarf in other colors.

FireFlower - custom - 1 point

About 8-9" tall

Goomba - custom - 1 point

I think it works ups to be about 8-9" tall

Bob-omb - custom - 1 point

I can't remember how tall this one is. I think about 4-5 inches.

Zero - Custom - 2 pts

He is quite large. That is a full sized desk/office chair he is sitting on.

Clutch - Custom - 2 pts unlined or 3 pts lined

I have the same pink variegated yarn, but the button would be different. If you want a different color, just let me know. If you want, I can send you a picture of my cotton yarns.
I can make the strap removable like this one:

Mario or Luigi - Custom - 3 pts each

Bath/Kitchen set - custom - 1 pt

This set contains a bath puff, 2 spiral scrubbies, a scrubbie with handle and a face cloth.
I can also make it in variegated blue, white or ecru. Here is a picture of the variegated blue:

Cupcake - Custom - 1 pt

I can make it a weighted pin cushion or I can make it just a stuffie with beads sewn on top for sprinkles. Let me know if you don't want a face.

Dog Bone - Custom -  1 pt

About 6 inches long

Bear - This one or Custom  -  2 pts

Baby Octopus - This one or Custom - .5 pt

These are pretty small, so they would probably make good stalking suffers. I can make as many as you need in whatever color(s) you want.

Lip Gloss Cozy - One of these or Custom - .25 pt or 5 for 1 pt

Includes lip gloss. If you want a different color or button, jut let me know.

Adult Lip Gloss Cozy - Custom - .25 pt
to change your image viewing settings please click here
Because you never know when you need.... lip gloss.

Resin Pendants - .5 pt per set .5 pt for both sets
This was an early attempt at resin, so some came out better than others. Some came out good while some have tiny imperfections. Since they aren't all perfect, I'm letting them go cheap.  
Set A:

Set B:

Octopus - This one - 1 pt

Imperfect Skinny Scarf - This one - .5 pt

I noticed that a part of the shells do not match up on the other size. If you want a 'perfect' one, I can make one in this color (or any other) for one point... see below.

Skinny Scarf - Custom - 1 pt

I can do this color or one of your choosing.

Cupcake Scarf - Custom - 2 pts

Triangle Shawl - Custom - 1 pts

Can be worn as a shawl or a scarf.


Ashtray -

It is very pretty, but we have no use for it. Maybe someone wants it to hold supplies?

New Patterns - 1 pts for 3 or 2 pts for all 7 of them.
I went a little overboard at the craft store and ended up with duplicate patterns.

2626, 2779, 2806, 3572, 2921

2553, 3787, 4391,
5320, 2490

jungrrl's shop

I live in Chicago in a cat-loving home.

Crafted Items


Rainbow Boucle Jacket - 2pt

These are more true to color than the first.

I worked so hard on this thing. It was in my WIP pile for YEARS.  From a pattern.  When I finished all my finishing I tried it on and the armhole on ONE of the sleeves was too small for me. Sad I can give full measurements if you'd like.

Whale Skirt, Size 6 - 3pt

Full size: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4030/4446679170_b28b6a8436.jpg
Waist - 26 in
Hip - 37 in
Lengthy - ~21 in
This is a Liz Claiborne (high-waisted?) pencil skirt. I added my zombie whale to the side!
(I also have a green on with the worm on it! I just don't have a good picture of the whole thing yet but here's the applique! http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4070/4445903677_8f45f11a63.jpg)

Hipster Doll Shirt - 3pt Reduced! 2pts!

Width - 15.5in (but has some give because of the deep V)
Length - 23 in
Design is called "Hipster Doll".  It is not serged but I think it's well constructed.  The sleeves are very slightly puffed and they don't hang as weird on arms as they do on my dressform.


*Notice - I make my plush with adults in mind. That being said, if you do intend these for a little one they should be relatively safe, especially if they have iron on or plastic features.  The glued on features should be secure but.. I dunno how strong/determined your kid is. Please use your best judgement.

MADE TO ORDER - T-bone Steak - 2pt

I'm keeping this one, but I can make you another one! Fuzzy red fabric and white fleece.

Leopard Bear - 2pt

Good for kids since all facial features are safe!

Ewok Bear - 2pt

Also only safe facial features! Can change his mood by styling his hair. Cheesy

Neon Bipolar Bunny - 2pt

This thing is so pink it hurts.

Brown Pocket Kitty - 3pt

Made out of fun fur and iron on with a small felt nose.  His white chest area is a pocket! Perfect for hiding love notes. I have lots of other kitties that I will put up later

Pocket Bunny - 3pts[/s][/i] Reduced! - 2pt

Made of fun fur with glued on felt facial features.  Check out the tail action!

Senor Guzanos - 2pts Reduced! - 1pt
That's Mr. Worm, for us gringas. Notice the handsome mustache. Made from felt, some velour-ish fabric, or felted sweater, depending on the worm! FYI, my cat is obsessed with one of these! Maybe yours would be to?
Claim as Bright Guzano 1, Moss Guzano, Green Guzano 1, Dark Green Guzano 1, Olive Guzano 1, and Sweater Guzano

Claiim as Bright Guzano 2, Green Mustache Guzano, Green Guzano 2, Olive Guzano 2

Light Grey Zombie Whale - 2pts

krrriiilllllbrraiiiinns.  Made out of felt with iron on features.

Misfit Plushies!
Something wonky about each. Please love them even if they are disfigured. Wink

Brown Misfit Kitty - 1pt

Took an iron to the face and ended up flat.

Orange Felt Kitty - 1pt

So sad.

Grey Felt Kitty - 1pt

Also sad.

"Primative Worlds" Envelopes - 1/2 pt

Set of 4 envelopes made from the pages of a random book I own called "Primative Worlds"  Roll Eyes  There is no way to seal these, unfortunately but a wax stamp would look killer!

Strawberry Skirt, Size 2 - 1/2 pt

Waist - 30in
Hips - 36 in
Length - 18 in
Why so cheap you ask? It's been hanging around my house for YEARS. Please take it!  Hell, if you want it free with something else, PM me and we can work it out.


IZone Polaroid Camera - 1pt

Takes tiny pictures which would be good for paper crafters, shrine makers, etc. Can find film on Amazon.

ONeill Hoodie - 2pts

I used to sell this kind of thing on Ebay.  This is old new stock basically.  I had grand plans for putting appliques over the O'Neill part. Maybe you could do that?  I ONLY have smalls. I can get you the exact measurements if you want! They are comfortable and thin. Originally retailed for $46.50. I have probably 8 of these.

Let me know if you want any specific info like what projects are in them, etc. Generally speaking they will be in decent shape EXCEPT some/most of the ads may have scribbles or lines through them.  It was a project I did for work.

This California-based SHOP is OPEN
I have a small dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy myself, so pardon stray hairs. No smoking, though!

For 2 points:

Custom tiny photo book - If you liked the Tiny Book Swap gallery, and want to give one as a gift this year, I'd love to make you one! They can be wall hangings, tree ornaments, flip-flopping Jacob's ladders, even necklace pendants, or just serve their original purpose as a book.  Smiley Pages can be metal, shrinky-dink, fabric, cut CDs, chipboard, etc, or any kind of paper. Regardless, they're the right size for stocking-stuffers. You'd send me the photos you want to use via email or a link to where you have them posted online, and we'd discuss the recipient's style and what they might like. Then I'd whip the whole thing together in a week and send it to you.  Grin

Custom altered puzzle - approx. 9x10 inches and 24 pieces. PM me to discuss beforehand, in case I lack the materials for your theme(s) of choice.

Custom 2011 page-a-day calendar - BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE! choose between a glue binding (like the ones bought at the store), screwpost binding or a metal ring binding. Pick any theme(s) you like, and I'll decorate accordingly with quotes, this-day-in-history (I even made one with all dates observed in Harry Potter and Wheel of Time books), and/or imagery. Some examples of previous ones I've made:
screwpost binding (all fanned out):  glue binding with decorated base: metal ring binding:

For 1 point:

Wedding flutter-album - blank scrapbook recon'd from a hardback novel called "To the Wedding". Cardstock pages with vellum dividers and black/gold/copper gingko leaf design accent paper (which sin esperanza sent me from NZ!) 2 envelopes built in made with textured black cardstock. Ribbon embellishment between pages and at the bottom edge. Another ribbon ties the book closed. Included with this book will be more of the metallic gingko leaf paper and textured black cardstock.

dark accordion album - metallic cover, dark gray heavyweight pages. matching paper loop keeps it shut when not in use.

green/rust recon blank book - sewn binding with ribbons at spine, hard cover taken from old Readers Digest Condensed Books. Mixed paper inside.

pink/rust recon blank book - sewn binding, hardcover. Book block is attached only to back cover, with spine and front cover mainly just decorative. Mixed paper inside. Made with almost entirely reclaimed materials.

"Songs of the Doomed" recon book - a Hunter S. Thompson/gonzo journalism book originally, now a blank mini binder full of mixed blank paper and images.

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

Vintage "Jill" embroidery - Not done by me, I picked it up last weekend in a yard sale of various anonymous vintage linens. About 6x5 inches with plastic frame. There was no "Jack" to go with "Jill"; I'm assuming it was just too gruesome to embroider Jack cracking his head open.  Cheesy

Half-point Items:

Hanging "Love" sign - brushed aluminum laminate samples covered on one side with a canvas paper, linked with large bails. Hanging from a wire, but I can replace the wire with bails if you prefer. I can also add another section (or as many as you like) with a photo or photos you send me. The whole thing folds up easily.

Felt stones - all wool/fiber, so you can throw them at anything you want to, even if you live in a glass house.  Grin 1 large or 3 small for half a point. (for throwing at people, I recommend the large ones)


1 point:

- mystery lot of rubber stamps. At least 7, unusual designs, nothing cutesy. mounted with foam.

- 2 California automobile license plates, one from the 1950s and one from the 1930s - rusted so much the corners have disintegrated.

- set of Embossing supplies - half bottle of Ranger Embossing Ink (spread a little of it onto your stamp pad), 2 containers of glittery embossing powder (about 75% full). The "white sparkle" one is perfect for snowy finishes, it looks more white when it's melted. The other is transparent with iridescent sparkle.


lot of 3 rubber stamps:

approx 50 sheets of a vellum-ish paper -- off-white, 8.5x11"

10 metal laminate samples - this is just a sampling of the samples - all kinds of different finishes, most are smooth/flat, silver/gray color, about 1.5 x 2.5 inches. Many are aluminum, and possibly could work with metal stamps? My Crop-a-Dile easily punches holes in them. On most of them the back side either needs a label peeled off or to be covered with something else. Most are made by a company called Chemetal and I recommend looking at their inventory of finishes and design gallery! Note: these sample cards came from a second-hand art supply store; I did not order them from the company.

Take one for FREE with any claim:
faux fur strip - a little over 5 ft long, and about 6 inches wide, with solid fabric backing; perfect for a costume stole or you could make it into something else.

9 Girl Scout patches from c1975 - they are large, sew-on special-event patches from Central California, not the cute tiny merit badge patches.

thank you for shopping!

Items claimed from me:
to ehinders: 10 laminate samples and the rubber stamp with the pic of the couple on it (1)
to sheepBlue: Golden Clear Granular Gel Medium (1)
to styupe: 2 custom page-a-day calendars (2)

Items claimed by me:

The Chartreuse Lily
is OPEN!

Last chance for Christmas sale!
Claim any 2 points and get 1 free!

I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband in our 1920's home that belonged to my grandparents that he is re-modeling. We have one furry cat- he stays pretty well groomed, and I have yet to find any cat hair on my crafty things, they usually are on tables or in bins. No other allergens in our home. I was practically born at a craft show--- my parents made their living that way and through their home-based business for years. Pottery, soapmaking and bath & body, jewelry, sewing, paper crafts, I have dabbled in it all, and have a real love of things that are handmade.


Oilcloth zippered pouch/makeup bag for 1 point, or a zippered coin purse for .25 point (not pictured). Please PM me first before claiming!

Cross-stitch/aida cloth on hold for lapoli: One large off white/cream piece is 23x16", and there are a couple 15" squares but most of the pieces average 7-10" squares, and some are smaller. About one gallon ziploc full. (1)

1 Point

Oilcloth makeup bag. Great as a makeup bag or a travel toiletries bag~ unlined since it is oilcloth. I currently have 1 strawberries and one flowers on yellow available.

Silver and Pearl Earrings. Swarvoski crystal pearls, and all findings are sterling silver. Swarvoski pearls are nice, they warm to the touch like real pearls and have the same luster. (1)

Moisturizing Winter Sugar Scrub. 4 oz container of my sugar scrub made with shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, avocodo oil and more! Comes in a purple container. 3 are available, Pearberry, Oatmeal Milk and Honey, and Unscented-- which smells faintly of cocoa.  Smiley 1 ea.

Cold Process Soap. 1 pt. each or 3 bars 2 pts. 13+ year recipe, all vegan, moisturizing bars with a nice, silky lather. Blackberry sage is dark green with dark purple swirls (1), Mocha Latte is brown (4), Peppermint tingle is pale green swirls (1), Lemongrass Orange is natural creamy color with yellow callendula blossoms (2), Wild Gypsy Tea has purple, red and blue swirls on top (1).
In the picture, they are not all completely wrapped-- they will come with a band of decorative paper over the white paper, and a sticker on the end with the fragrance, so they are gift basket ready!

.5 Point
(Handcrafted and supplies may be combined to reach a full point claim)

Reduced! Reusable lunch bag. Outer is a nice natural colored canvas, the inner lining is a vintage white and yellow checkered pattern. Aqua button and pink and blue ribbon closure. 1

Everyday Brass Hoops, retro sunburst hoops or a Night in Paris earrings. Made from oxidized brass that is nickel free. .5 pt. each

.25 point

Sweet Almond cuticle creams. I have 4 available, these are so nice on your dry cuticles in the winter, and it smells like a cookie when you put it on! Smiley


1 Point
Old school coin rolls!! Nabbed these at an estate sale, they are so cool, but maybe they would get used by a paper crafter! About 60 total, 1 pt for all

20 Vintage watchmaker paper envelopes with hands inside. Usually 1-2 each envelope, sometimes 3. Can also claim 10 for .5 pt! While supplies last. Smiley 1


.5 Point

Watch movements with dials! I'm clearing out the last of my inventory, after this I may not have any more. .5 pts each, or 6 for 2 pts. Claim by row and number in that row. (Example: 2nd row, 3rd)
I realized I didn't put in a size reference---- the smaller movements in the upper left are approximately dime sized. Measurements available upon request, feel free to PM me with any questions.
Second pic shows availability.

1Watermonkey's Shop is Open Smiley

I am a stay at home mom located in South Carolina. My home is smoke free but is shared with three dogs and two cats. I try to keep everything as hair free as possible but there is a chance a stray pet hair may slip into a package. I do all sorts of crafts but the majority of my stuff is sewn.

Snap Card/Money Wallets (1 Point Each)
These little wallets are great to carry in your purse for when you have to go in somewhere without hauling your whole purse in, you can stick your credit/debit car, license, cash etc. in them. They are lined with a coordinating fabric and have snap closures.

Peas in a Pod (4 1/2 X 4 1/2"), Blue Birds on Pink (3 1/2 X 4 1/2"), Pink Unicorn (Flannel) (5X5"), Girly Skulls (4 1/2 X 4 1/2"),

I made a bunch of these for family for xmas gifts this year, a great alternative to paper sacks. :]  Measures about 12" by 12". Closes with velcro. Three available.


Chihuahua Plush Ornaments (.5 Point Each)
These chihuahua ornaments are machine and hand sewn. They have a long gold ribbon hanger and are about two inches long. They also kind of look like little deer.


Wizard of Oz Fabric Lot (2 Points)
A long time back I bought a bunch of Wizard of Oz fabric, planning on making a quilt. Those plans fell through so I want to find it a new home. Here there is a piece measuring about 20X44 inches with alternating panels of movie scenes, and character portraits, two larger panels, one of Glinda and one of The Wicked Witch of the West (I had planned to make an alternating Good Witch/Bad Witch tote out of these which is why they are cut to size) They measure about 16X17", and one larger piece with character portrait cameos, some of it was cut out but excluding the partially cut piece, it measures 69X46". It has been washed to be prepared for use and needs to be ironed.

Yellow Circle Fabric (1 Point)
This fabric is yellow with multicolored circle/spiral patterns. It is cotton I believe. It has been cut off of, excluding the part where there was a cut it measures 52X52".

Sailor Moon Fabric Circles (.5 Point)
Set of 6 Sailor Moon fabric circles. Originally cut out of a valance. I had another set I interfaced and appliqued onto some baby onesies for my niece and they turned out really cute. These are just over 5" long and wide so are good sized. They are thin so you would want to put some interfacing on them before sewing onto anything.

Yellow Fabric (1 Point)
This yellow fabric is a lycra/spandex/dancewear of some kind. It is very stretchy and feels like spandex. I bought it for my superhero costume a few years ago and bought way too much. There are 2 yards here and it is 60" wide.

This fabric looks like a lingerie sort of fabric, it is pale pink and stretchy, sheer. There are a little under 7 yards here.

Two Sewing Books (1 Point)

Blank Canvas Tote Bags (1/2 Point Each)
Blank canvas tote bags. They are about 13X13. There are two off white, one denim, and one brown.

Cat Eye Fat Quarter (1/2 Point)
Fat quarter of sparkly cat eye fabric.

Tinkerbell Fabric (1/2 Point)
Purple Tinkerbell fabric. There is one yard here. It has been washed in preparation for use so it may have a little bit of shrinkage.

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and my house is smoke-free but definitely not pet hair free!

Spring Fever Chunky Calorimetry-type headband with handspun, handdyed domestic wool yarn, plastic lei flowers, and vintage buttons (with small amounts of other fibers used to attach the flowers.) There's a lot of me in this piece, having worked it up from plain white roving, but I'm hoping it'll speak to someone. The way the flowers stick out kind of reminds me of old-school bathing beauty caps! It is completely adjustable because it has two buttons and a series of eyelets up either side. Last picture of just the yarn is the most true to color. Three points.

Custom Knitting Kit.
I have a stash of vintage and well-loved kntiting needles, so I can probably put together a kit for whatever you want to knit. PM me to work out the details, or to claim needles alone as a supply. Variable points.

Swirl Hat. I knit this for myself and I've worn it a few times, but it has been in the closet for a long time because I think it might work better as a child's hat or maybe for someone with a lot less hair than I. It has a ribbed edge and biased swirls, with alternating shiny and dull stripes and iridescent purple glass beads. It is a lightweight hat, made of non-wool fibers (cotton and some kind of synthetic for the shiny spots). Claim it only if you love it, because I still think it's extremely pretty and I want it to be worn! Two points.

Twine. I tried spinning some "blanket" grade alpaca, and the results were... uncomfortable. I gave up on it pretty quickly. But I thought it would make a nifty alternative to raffia for wrapping christmas presents! 16 yards of strong 4-ply in mixed tan tones. .25 point.

Wine charms. Put them on wine glasses at gatherings so that people don't get their drinks mixed up! Set of six with glass and metal beads on memory wire. These are gone, but PM me for a custom set! Even if you have no use for them personally, they are great to have on hand for "in case of emergency"  gifts, especially as a host/hostess gift alongside a bottle of wine. One point.

Rhumba bracelet/choker. Wooden beads on memory wire. The memory wire will conform to fit any size wrist (modeled on my tiny arm), and it's pretty durable so it would be great for kids too. It can also be worn as a choker, though it's not exceptionally comfortable that way. .25 point.

Pirate Clip. Pirate head bead securely glued onto an alligator-style clip for the hair. I don't remember whether the bead is acrylic or ceramic, and it feels kind of halfway between the two. His earring is metal and swings freely! Claim this cutie before too long, because if I have to look at him in my shop for a while I may regret posting him and take him back for my own collection. b]One point.[/b]

Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.

Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.

Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. .25 point.



Stone leaf pendants. Some kind of jasper maybe? Three small (1" long) and three large (1.75" long). .25 point gets the lot.

X Iron-on. Iron-on applique, large and nifty, roughly 5" by 4.5". .5 point.

Base metal charms. Bargain mixed lot. Five suns, six locks, four fishbones, three "love" keys, two "clover" keys, a penguin, an anchor, and a dove. 1" long. .25 point.

Hair barette. This is not the best quality, just a random base metal doodad I've never found a use for. Note the curve, it is designed to fan out the hair a bit. 2" wide and 1" deep. .25 point.

Candy tin. A bit smaller and shallower than an altoid tin, but it's the same idea. The pink edge of the box top is raised, but other than that the tin is unembossed. 3.25"l, 2.5"w, .75"d. .25 point.

Tea tin. For decoupage or recovering. 4.5"h 3.5"d, base metal. Has an inner lid with embossing and an outer lid. It makes a pretty good seal when both are on, to keep your tea fresh. Still smells a lot like tea. .5 point.

Tea box. For decoupage. 4"h 2.5"w 1.875"d, made of nice sturdy paper/cardbord with a tight-fitting lid. Still smells a little like tea! .5 point.

Un-Altoid Tin. These boxes are the same dimensions as an Altoid tin, smooth and unembossed on all surfaces. Artwork varies. .25 point, two available.

Western Charms. Set of six plastic charms, new in package (package on some of them is not in great shape though). Three sets available. One point per set.

1963 Smocked Pillows Pattern. I'm pricing this high because after perusing the internet I can't find any others actually for sale, and it looks like some have sold quickly for $25 and more. Plus, it's simply amazing, unused, uncut (though I didn't unfold it all the way so it wouldn't get messed up). It contains patterns for four different smocked pillows that I can totally picture sitting on my deceased grandma's couch, or winding up on the set of Mad Men. Three points.

Gourmet Ribbons. These short lengths of ribbon are from the amazing desinger ribbon store Mokuba. If you ever get a chance to go in one of those stores, do it... it's like a crafter mecca. I was going to sew these into headbands, but it still hasn't happened and I don't know when my sewing machine is realistically going to come out of storage. Choose from brown chenille, swiss miss, marshmallow rope, and faux tatting. The brown chenille is shorter than the others at 19.5", while the rest are approximately 21". Also, this picture muted some of the gorgeous subtlety of tone-on-tone color in faux tatting. It's really my favorite of the bunch, and I held back a similar one in green for myself. Smiley .5 point each.

Vintage Knitting Pattern Books. I inherited a litle old lady's stash, and these gently loved pattern books were among them. I won't be sad if nobody claims them, because when I went to photograph the contents I kinda got wistful! Choose from baby book or basics book. The baby book dates from the early 90's, and the basics book dates from the early 80's. I captured all of the contents of the baby book in this slideshow but only got a sampling of the basics book. Baby also has a couple of crochet patterns. The basics book is neat because for each sweater pattern (various styles for men, women and children) it has directions and gauge in three different kinds of yarn (maybe fingering, sport and DK?). If you have a stash yarn you're trying to match up with a pattern, this will make it much more likely that you'll find a good gauge match. There are some accessories thrown in there, too. .25 per book.

Thanks for visiting!

Wishlist: Jewelry holder, hairpin lace loom, stenciled shirts, Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster), Maiden's Glory crocheted headdress, other interesting crocheted stuff.

sunspotted's shop of no pretty banner


Hello everyone.  I'm new to StS and very excited to be participating.  It's been a long time coming.  I live and craft in the middle of nowhere, also known as Northwestern Ontario, Canada.  I have cats and dogs and I shed quite a bit myself, but I'm pretty handy with a washing machine and a lint roller if I do say so myself; so hopefully allergies won't be an issue.  I have the attention span of a gnat, which is why I like to make random things that pop into my head or follow patterns that make me say Oooo shiny.  Rarely do I know what to do with these things when I'm done so StS seems to be an awesome way to find homes for my stuff.  I'd be happy to do custom work or recreate things from my shop in different sizes/colours/etc., but I can't promise I'll be quick.

One point items
Tree skirt shades of burgundy, forest green and beige, the skirt is shown folded in half.  Fully opened the outside circumference can be 72 inches, but it can be overlapped on itself to make it fit your tree. -- sold to funthreads

Shawl or cowl.  I didn't have quite as much yarn as I thought so this shawl ended up a bit on the short side (66 inches long).  I have just enough yarn left to sew it up into a cozy cowl though if you'd like.  The yarn is a wool/something blend (probably acrylic) with no label.  I washed it on delicate and dried it flat and it seems fine, quite warm and soft.

Ami tree made to test a pattern for someone and now I'd like it to have a good home.  About 14 inches tall, it almost stands up by itself.  Smiley

Newsboy hat in purple and black acrylic.  A terrible picture I know, but it's the best I could get.  It's more of a puffy style newsboy that the close-fitted style, fits a normal adult size head (I will measure it soon).

Sunhat in rose/green/white cotton.  Floppy bucket style, made on the large size because I hate tight fitting hats, especially in the heat, but it is cotton so could probably be shrunk a bit.

One point items
Scrapbook paper 25 sheets of various patterns, mainly blues, greens and browns.  
Scrapbook supply kit lots of stickers and embellishments.

Afghan pattern magazine from Crochet Today!  Some really nice patterns but I already have all the magazines.  -- sold to funthreads

Very cute yarn and needles to knit a pink/green baby hat.
