KA-CHING! KACHINA DOLLS!

KA-CHING! KACHINA DOLLS!

 

Dearest Readers, all three of you, do you remember when I implored you to buy from me so I could buy myself a vintage Native American cluster bracelet? Well looky here:

 

But it is no thanks to you.  My blog generated no sales, which was the object of the exercise.  That's rich.  However, I did have a great show in January at the New York International Gift Fair.  One of my new clients is Anthropologie!  They are selling my pillows on line and only two remain.  My trusty intern and I just shipped out a new batch yesterday.



I am most deserving of this bracelet

So yes, I was in a fairly good mood last Friday when a friend told me about a Native American Art Sale. I went and I left elated and obsessed. Let the tale commence.



The sale was at a Boy Scout Center, which filled me with fear and fascination. I am usually against organized fun and do good-ing, and I was scared to go to a Boy Scout center. Plus I hate to drive and the center was off a frontage road off I-35. But the need for jewelry brought be out of my zip code.



Well the center was VERY fancy! And wouldn't you know it, the people who worker/volunteered there were chipper and most helpful. They directed me to a banquet room full of wonders.....

Anyhoo, turns out these are quite spendy, and with great reason. I did not have the cash on me for the vintage Kachina, and I had given my housekeeper the Amex to go on a liquor store run. I am going to take the time to research and find the best dealers. But here is the thing; I need a giant collection and I am asking you to buy pillows so that I can amass an important Kachina collection.


This week I debuted my Cave Painting Pillows. The pillows are hand stitched by fair trade artisans in India and then hand sewn in Austin, Texas. Down insert and invisible zipper.
They are fun all together

So, be a dear and check my website and buy. I would be forever grateful. But if you don't that's okay too, because I did take home something that day :
