Hello! Here’s the counterpoint to the Sneak Peek – the Week in Review – where we recap the week that was and how things are coming along.

It’s been a busy week, but not terribly photo-worthy. Lots of behind the scenes work playing with SEO! It’s finally starting to get chilly here (a nice change from the 90+ degrees that we had been dealing with all summer), and with it the avalanche of pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavored goodies. I, on the other hand, am going apple crazy. I made apple butter last weekend and I made apple cider caramels this week.









YUM! I highly recommend making caramels yourself. It’s not hard, but you need to be patient and to remember not to stir even though you really want to!

What’s new this week:











  • Halloween and Christmas craft supplies have been photographed:
  • DSC_4403DSC_4152








  • Party and Peasant Dresses is officially on vacation until next January so that we can focus on preparing for our fall craft fair appearances.
  • We are trying something new in Passing Fancy Jewelry – free shipping to anywhere in the US! I don’t know about you, but after going through my shopping list the last thing I want to do is add in shipping after the fact just to find that shipping costs just as much as what I’m buying. We aren’t terribly happy with the new changes to the Etsy shipping calculator, and this seems like the best option for both us and you. If this is popular, we will change over the other shops too.

Tune in tomorrow for the next Sneak Peek!
