Hat shop sale

We went to Hebden Bridge last weekend with a selection of jewellery and called into a hat shop, on the off chance, thinking perhaps they might like to stock some of Toby's bracelets. The lady owner and maker was very friendly, has taken our details and says she will get back to us. She was talking of buying pieces from us, not sale or return, which is good, and also possibly giving us buttons, to make bracelets which colour co ordinate with her hats. We will have to wait and see.

In the above hat shop, was the lady owners friend, who bought a matching necklace, earing, and bracelet set, made from vintage beads, shells, handmade fimo beads, and buttons, all knotted together. Toby walked out of the shop with a cheque for £50! so we went to the organic house cafe for tea (and elder flower drink for Toby) and cake to celebrate!

What a fun excursion! And I love the idea of making matching jewelry to go with the hats!

OH well done, looks as the Hat Lady was really interested in the jewellery. A second well done to selling some jewellery instantly to a Hat Shop Customer.
