Zola Kids!

I am so excited about this amazing wholesale order that I received this week! The order is from an incredible eco-friendly children's boutique in Saratoga Springs, New York called Zola Kids.

If you are ever in the area (north of Albany), stop in and check out this wonderful store! Not in the area? No worries - they will soon have a web site up (March or April) and you'll be able learn about them and their products. I'll let you know when their website is up and running.

Their information is:
  • www.ZolaKids.com (site up in March or April)
  • 380 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, New York

A Friend Needs Help

I found the following via cole & josephine who found this via knackstudios and thought I would pass it on as well. I also can't imagine being in this situation, and I hope this little bit helps. Please repost if you feel moved as well.

....friends, I just found out today that one of my blog friends Gina Drennon from the shop Feather Your Nest lost her husband tragically to a heart attack last week. He was only 39, and they were highschool sweethearts married for 16 years with two beautiful children. Below is an excerpt from the email I received this morning.......

"She quickly decided that she must close her store so she can focus on her family & find a job that will provide a steady salary & benefits that they've now lost. The problem with doing it now is her store is located in a tourist resort & it is currently "off season" which will not begin to even pick up for several months and not fully until late spring/early summer and her store isn't even open in January regardless. Selling as much as possible online as quickly as possible, will certainly help her out.

We've all seen the mountains a group of bloggers can move when we band together. I'm kindly asking that each of you post something on your blog to encourage your readers to shop with her, and/or pass it on to others, tweet it, whatever. Gina does not know I am doing this, she is first very proud and would never ask for help, and dislikes any attention. But she is a generous soul and I have watched her donate goods and money to others in need more often than anyone. I feel helpless watching her struggle from afar & am trying to think of anything I can do to help.

Currently she is trying to get her store back online. She had a friend just delete all the files off the site after his death and when I e-mailed her earlier she was attempting to re-upload all the files and then post notices....hoping to finish within the next 24 hours. She will start out with all merchandise at 25% off site-wide. "

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday season!

So I've been busy working out some new design ideas and finding new fabrics for the spring and summer. I'll admit it's been a bit of a slow process lately. But I'm hoping to have some new things posted in the next couple of weeks.

In other news, I've become a huge fan of a couple of websites that have saved me a ton of money lately. I check these sites daily, and I am always very appreciative of the amazing deals that are posted. So I thought I'd share them with you and hopefully you can take advantage of the great deals too. I figure in an economy like this, who couldn't use a deal or two?

One of the sites is www.hip2save.com. This site contains incredible savings on pretty much everything. I love it! Another is www.mommysavers.com - great ideas and great deals too. Thanks to both of these sites for finding and sharing ways to cut costs!
