Today I'd like you to meet Tonya Schroeder (pictured above). She is the manager of Tastes & Talents, a unique collection of 76 merchants offering a variety of handmade items and yummy treats. http://www.facebook.com/tastesandtalents and tastesandtalents.com. She is also a talented visual artist. Photos of some of her awesome paintings are posted at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.180840195326639.45097.100002019800780&type=3. Pandora's Canvass, pictured above, is one of my favorites.
As of December 3, 2011, I will be teaming up with Tamy Burnett of Rock Star Yarns http://www.etsy.com/people/rockstaryarns. We will be sharing a 4' x 5' display area featuring handmade fashion accessories in Tonya's consignment shop: shawls, wraps, scarves, crocheted beaded bracelets, clutches, handbags, and small purses.
I have never sold on consignment, so this is a new adventure! It will certainly keep me occupied during my furlough as I create new inventory for the consignment shop and my Etsy shop, handle custom orders, and finish up some handmade gifts. (I did a hand-stitched rolled hem on a hot pink lame Barbie evening gown last night after my evening shift at the tax office--granddaughter gift.)
We will be setting up our display this weekend. With 5 days off next week, I hope to add more clutches, pouches and small card holder/purses to our inventory before December 10. Stay tuned for further developments.
