Another Perfect Day!
I began selling them last year; to be specific on December 19th. I lost track of how many I made and how many I sold. I had a terrific local boutique, "Wildflower" that carried them for me here in Evansville.
The owner of Wildflower, the fabulous Peggy Chastain, took them with her to market in Chicago last year and wore them around for all to see and admire. That trip my mittens took to Chicago has resulted in my first retail store outside of Indiana. Thank you to Peggy for sending "The Magic Jacket" my way! Thank you to Debbie Frank/Oowner, for your order of 12 pairs of texting mittens. You will have them the week of August 1st.
I am thrilled to be represented in the state of.....
drum roll please........Wisconsin!
To those of you who don't know about the texting mittens-they are made from re-purposed wool sweaters. My attempt at giving back to mother earth. I use vintage buttons, lace and trims to embellish them. They are one of a kind. They can be special ordered. They do have a thumb hole, to keep them in place. Yes, there is a manly version, however, they were placed in homes prior to their photos being taken.
I am so excited that I am sure I am leaving out important details. That is bound to happen when you are having yet another perfect day! My hope is that all of you out there are having your perfect day as well!!!
