Gettin' crafty-for-a-party!

Wow. So I'm writing a blog post for the first time in over a year. The reason? Because I'm having a craft-sale and it's too hard to explain it all on Instagram, that's why!

The low-down is this:

In September, my totally hot, intelligent and inspirational girlfriend is turning 40. I want to throw her an awesomely unforgettable celebration, and I need some funds to do so, so I'm hoping to flog off some sewing/crochet/wooden spoons to some nice folk who'd like some handmade goodness in their lives.

A while back, I had a by-donation skirt sale. It was awesome, and you can read about it here. I liked its style because it kind of defied the normal capitalist cash-for-goods equation. Obviously, it's still a cash-for-goods equation, but with a twist. The "by-donation" part means that negotiation and a relationship between buyer and seller is established, which I think is more appropriate for an intimate crafty-for-a-party type situation, don't you?

In these situations I ask buyers to nominate a price based on what the item is worth to you and how much you can afford to pay. You send me an email, and we take it from there.

Basically, this sale is a free for all. Anything you've ever seen on the Autumn Farm Instagram feed, or on this blog (feel free to peruse the tabs at the right) is fair game. Seriously. Dresses, skirts, booties, stubby holders, bunting, tops, baby quilts, crocheted little creatures, hand-carved-spoons etcetera. It will all be made just for you. One of a kind. Bespoke, if you will.

So what are you waiting for? Pick out that Autumn Farm/Pearl & Elspeth created treasure and send me an email.

Don't be shy.

You'll be contributing to an awesome chick's birthday celebration, after all.
