Post Deluxe!

Deluxe on Saturday was amazing :)
We're talking people lined up outside 30 minutes before doors opened.
We're talking selling 23+ monkeys in one hour.
We're talking running completely out of bags (embarrassing!).
We're talking more than double profit compared to last year's show.

With that said, I took only 4 photos. All before the doors opened.
All very boring:

Great booth location, awesome booth neighbors *Holla Ladies! Nikki from Gleeful Peacock and Geri from Revamped*, and all day nonstop shoppers.
Not to mention a super sweet trade with Ashley from Hook Line Sinker, score!
I didn't get to do nearly as much shopping as I wanted, missed several booths I had planned on hitting hard. Ugh! 


NOW for the folks who read this and didn't get a chance to catch the show I have a little offer :)
If you have been wanting an ornament, waiting patiently for one to appear in ye ole Etsy shop, I have one better. Email me at adrian@fried-okra.com and I'll make you a custom Sock Monkey ornament. I'll supply you with photos of the socks I have on hand and the cost is $20. Obviously the days are ticking away and there's no guarantee it will arrive before Christmas, especially since it will be a custom order.

Deluxe Tomorrow!

 One last reminder! If you are in the Great State of Oklahoma I fully encourage you to make the drive to the State Fairgrounds tomorrow for this event. I will give you my top 4 reasons:
1) F-R-E-E admission. Who wants to pay to shop?
2) All Handmade. No mass produced nonsense.
3) Live music and hands on activities for the little ones
4) I'll be there with 40+ monkeys and a minivan full of other assorted goodies :)

My Mister and I are off for a night in the big city so I'll be back on Monday with a post full of photos.
And a special pre-Christmas offer for those non-Okies :)

See you there!

Fancy Mice

And here we have Sweater Mice with accessories :)
I will have a big (BIG) selection at Deluxe on Saturday! OKC fairgrounds people, be there.

Little velvet bowties with a button/loop closure, for when he's not feeling so fancy...

Fancy silk aprons for the cocktail serving hostess...

And little hankie aprons for the more practical minded.
I'm super jazzed about the apron and bowtie mice, they are absolutely adorable if I do say so myself :)

Deluxe Monkeys!

Some of the Sock Monkeys I'll have with me at Deluxe on Saturday, THIS Saturday! Eeep.
No need for panic. I'm all done and ready for the show, now I'm working on consignment monkeys for Miss Stela at The Felt Bird.
I feel ahead of the game ;) 

How darn cute is this last guy?! Gah, the color combo is so lovely :)
Tomorrow I'll post a photo of the super awesome velvet bow-ties I made for a select few Sweater Mice. Very nice!
