One of a Kind Spring Show and Sale 2011 Coupon!

The One of a Kind Spring Show and Sale is soon to come. It was a beautiful sunny day today and it's certainly getting me in the mood for Spring!

The Show runs from March 30-April 3, 2011 at the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place, Toronto. This year MoonRox can be found in BOOTH Q-52.

For those of you already planning your visit, here is a coupon for $3 off the cost of admission! Use the coupon code ADdbpx3 when purchasing your tickets online HERE.

See you in a month's time!

Cool tool

I visit my local post office quite regularly to send off packages of MoonRox big and small. I am always guesstimating the thickness of my packages to see which specified standard dimensions set by Canada Post I will be paying for. So, I was so happy to find this fabulous little tool from the Sweetie Pie Press.
It's made from laser cut wood right here in Toronto! It has enhanced my little make-shift shipping centre immensely! You can pick one up for yourself here!

and more!

New MoonRox stock at Frock

I visited Frock the other day and brought in their lovely new selection of MoonRox. Owner Cathryn ordered a cheerful and colourful grouping! Go check 'em out and have a gander at the nice threads in the store while you are there. Spotted some pretty things!

Love the "mirrored" wall in the shop! Here's a sampling of some jewels...
Loop Toss Necklace
Trinket Necklace -- Lockets

I like to look for prints on Etsy every so often. Came across this one (amongst many other charming ones) by Matte Stevens. It's called The Giant Suburban Bear Monster. It made me laugh as it reminded me of the time Mrs. B. and I actually saw a giant suburban bear.

Hope you had a nice Family Day long weekend! Caught up with some friends and saw my Grandmother and Aunt L. but missed the rest of the family this weekend.

On Sunday I visited the St. Lawrence antique market. I do enjoy roaming around there to see what bits and bobs people have collected. It's like a mini history lesson at every stop. It's also a great place for people watching. Came away without purchasing anything and was quite pleased with myself as I really need to purge, not pollute my space with more things.

'Twas a nice long weekend! Plus I got plenty of work done and the majority of the orders from the Mode Show are ready to go!

Love that place... a dose of calm on an ugly strip of Adelaide.
Okra. Been addicted to it.

I've been enjoying this little fling with Spring we've been having, though it is totally abnormal that it is this warm in February... Just a few more weeks until the season of renewal arrives...

Dollarama treasures

I went in for padded envelopes and came out with these gems. That place is dangerous for buying things you really don't need, but you can come up with any half-baked justification as it's only a dollar or two! Got this cute tape dispenser, perfect for a single roll of Japanese masking tape. I'll use this at the One of a Kind Show to seal packages of jewellery!
Sweet little paper clips, ideal for clipping together MoonRox line sheets.
Nice coil-bound note books, just in time to replace my existing one on its last few pages... Lovely for jotting down custom orders and other tidbits.
And who doesn't need napkins imprinted with C-notes?

Swedish Hasbeens Spring/Summer 2011

Not sure why, but I am such a sucker for Swedish Hasbeens. Digging the new styles and new colours, especially Strappy, shown in the first pic. Maybe I'll have to try to score a pair from their upcoming collaboration with H&M.

Busy busy! But, feeling great as I am learning new things about running this business every day. Sounds cheesy, but it's nice to know you never stop learning in life! However, lately it seems the days are blending in together and I'm a little bit in shock that it's February already. Guess that's what happens when you are busy! So, I'm looking up from what I'm doing to say a quick hello to the blog world! Back to work! I'll have some new jewellery pics to post soon!

Snow day

Today was a good day for a snow day... no where to drive, no where to fly. Hope all of my fellow Mode Show exhibitors as well as the buyers were able to get where they wanted to today. We didn't seem to get as much snow as they forecasted here in downtown Toronto. I was hoping for more! I love the peaceful calm that blankets the city with the fluffy white stuff.
The Mode Show was great! I'll let you know when new MoonRox goods arrive in the stores for Spring!
