This little Pear went to Market

So today was the third Nantucket Farmer's Market and Carmen and I were not exactly chilling on the sunny side of the street.  It was pretty toasty out there.  But the nice weather brought with it some pretty rockin' customers.  We had one of our best markets ever!  Thanks to all the people who stopped by and supported us, we love when our little creations have good homes.

I finally downloaded some of our pictures too.  About time, right?!  Our new stuff has been getting some rave reviews and we've been having a great time making it.  My mom just scored a bunch of sweet vintage jewelry for us to reincarnate so be sure to check out booth every Saturday for the new wares.
Carmen copped a squat and toiled away last Saturday.  Her cuffs are pretty sweet.
We've been making some new necklaces with scarves.  They're super lightweight ...We have new cards too.  Nantucket themes, Whaling in general and some surfers... 

Summer McGill, my best buddy from high school, came to visit last weekend.  It was awesome.  We went to the brewery for the delicious Blue-Haired Ladies, you have to try it.  Grey Lady beer with a little splash of Triple 8 Blueberry Vodka.  Then to the Muse to beat the crap out of the punching machine and grab a bite and a beer.  I had to send her home with some goodies.  She chose these killer oar earrings...
this one is a little blurry but you get the idea.

Hard at work in our little studio...  Carmen sporting one of her killer cuffs...  This necklaces was money...  I was wearing it at the market last week and a woman bought it from us while we were packing up.  It was so cool, I was a little sad to see it go. We also created some beer bottle earrings... Beth had the great idea to put Cisco Brewery labels on them.  I have to check with Wendy Hudson to see if that's okay first.  The labels on them now are sorta legible.  One is Colt 45. They crack me up.  
This background wasn't the best for these little guys, but it's the only picture I got of them.  A woman snatched 'em up right away.  

We're going to be in the studio as much as possible this week... The nice weather makes the allure of the beach a little too much sometimes.  We'll keep the trendy works coming, don't you worry.

So Much Has Happened

So it's been awhile. Sorry about that. Jess did make it back to Nantucket for the summer, but has decided not to get back into The Pear. Don't despair just yet, however, Carmen stepped up and has taken over as my partner in crime.

We had our first farmer's market last Saturday. I really didn't feel prepared, but once we got there things went pretty smoothly. There was a decent turn out and we got a lot of positive feedback. We sold a lot more cards than we have in the past, which is one of the things I'm focusing on for the season. I like the necklaces and earrings, but I LOVE the cards.

My mom mailed us a bunch of tarot cards that I've been making some post and greeting cards out of. They're pretty cool, if i do say so myself. I have some pictures that I still need to download and post so you all can bask in the awesomeness.

Until then, just know that we're truckin' along, strong as ever. Hope to see at the Market on Saturday or read your comments.
