I've been working my bee-hind off for a little over a week now, trying to get the sulu-design etsy shop well stocked. You can check out the most recently added earrings in the sidebar, or click on the photos below for links to some of the shop's newest pieces:
I've also been making a few deliveries to the shops in Queens that carry sulu-design pieces. Subdivision in Long Island city has 16 new pairs of earrings, and Mimi's Closet in Astoria has close to fifty. I'm just trying to have all of my i's dotted and my t's crossed before Barry and I head out of town for Spring Break this Saturday. Texas here we come! A few years ago, on a bit of a whim, Barry and I took a two week road trip around the state. We generally avoided big cities - Austin being the exception - and ended up falling head over heels in love with the place. Who woulda thunk it? We were pleasantly surprised by lots of quirky small towns and amazing scenery in the Big Bend region, so we're headed back for a heapin' helpin' of Texas fun (and barbecue) during the first week in April.
Which reminds me... I've been meaning to ask you readers who are familiar with Austin: can anyone recommend a small shop there that might be a potential sulu-design jewelry retailer? When we were in Austin last, I made arrangements with Elise, the sweet owner of Vanilla Girl Designs, to have my pieces sold at her shop, but for whatever reason, they just didn't do all that well there. Seeing as I've become obsessed with the city, I'd be thrilled to have my pieces in an Austin shop, and I'd like to set up a meeting with a store owner while we're there if possible. I'd appreciate any suggestions you've got.
I hope your week gets off to a good start. (But honestly, I'm getting really excited for it to end!)
