This will be my Facebook header and profile picture.
This is my yarn label.
And these are the 'spiels' I plan on posting on Facebook pre-opening.
So this one I will post about 10 days before opening:
Welcome to Tiny Toadstool Cottage!
I am very excited to be introducing my new Facebook enterprise and I hope you will stop by often for a browse.
I have always loved crafting of all sorts, particularly wool crafts. I find it particularly important to use natural materials in my crafting – wool, alpaca, silk, bamboo, cotton, wood.
I will be offering numerous items here, with the main focus being on my hand dyed yarn. Other goodies will include hand dyed playsilks, hand knitted clothing, homewares and toys, felted playmates, toys and clothing, hand sewn clothing and toys and whatever other crafty goodness I decide to make. I have so many ideas, my head is spinning! Suggestions are always welcome.
Have a peek at the photos to see some of the goodies that will be hitting the shop soon!
Please check back here for details of Tiny Toadstool Cottage’s opening!
And I would love to have you visit my blog as well – you may see some sneak peeks of works in progress!
And this I will post a week before opening.
We are getting close to my opening day of 1st February 2016. Excited, but nervous!
Today I would like to go through the operation of the shop.
Items will be offered for sale in what I am calling ‘Parades’. For example, the first parade will be ‘A Parade of Hand-Dyed Yarn’.
Parades will be offered for sale every week on Wednesday evenings, beginning at 8pm AEST. The sale album will be posted for preview from Monday morning, so you should have plenty of time to view and choose your favourites!
Every fortnight, the parade will be hand-dyed yarn, following a particular theme.
Every alternate fortnight, the parade will be some other fun item, such as hand knitted or hand sewn clothing, toys, etc. Some ideas that I already have in mind are:
A Parade of GnomesA Parade of Hand-Dyed Playsilks
A Parade of Hand-Knitted Baby Jackets / Bootees / HatsA Parade of Knitted Play Food
A Parade of Tea Cosies
A Parade of Longies
So the first parade will be previewing from the morning of Monday 1st February, with the sale opening on Wednesday 3rd February at 8pm AEST.
Hope to see you there!
Sorry - lots of reading there! For anyone who has managed to make it through to the end, what do you think? Does it all make sense? Sound OK? I would so love any feedback you have to offer.
Thanks so much in advance!
My absolute dream would be to see people stashing my yarn on Ravelry - wouldn't that be so cool?!
