Small steps in the right direction
Firstly, new earrings available at Strange Things Emporium!
Not my usual style, but they fit in with the theme of the shop. I believe they areÂ reasonably priced, so even better if they sell ;)
Next up, incorporatingÂ upcycling into my business model. I’ve become an avid tea drinker since discovering Earl’s Valentine (a seasonal black tea blend fromÂ David’s Tea), and winter has bestowed upon me several of these beautiful display tins.Â I am thinking I can re-purpose them for earring containers, or possibly art. I used to have an interest in tiny dioramas, butÂ stopped becauseÂ I had no way to seal them away from dust.Â (I wonder ifÂ these will work, aesthetically speaking. Hrm… )
For kicks, I started priming the cases a few of them came in. They will either make great display cases… or they won’t. Either way I’ll have learned something, and the cases are still good for storage.
Not the direction I expected to take myself in, but art (ok, and possible sales!) pleases me :D There might be room to sell my traditional artwork at Strange Things Emporium, as well. I need to make inquiries and crank out some drawings if it works for me.
Until later <3
