Black Friday to Cyber Monday!

With Thanksgiving this week, and Christmas around the corner, it's time to shop! Handmade3D will be having Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales!

From 11/27 to end of day 11/30 all orders will receive free worldwide shipping!

Please note this offer does not include "Penny Eye Pillow Monsters." However if you purchase a Penny Eye Monster, I will cut the priority shipping in half, having it be $5.15 to ship a Penny Monster. If you purchase anything else with your Penny Monster, they will be shipped free.

Keep in mind those silly little PJ's are also on sale! Buy a PJ with any other item and the PJ is reduced to $5 each!

All shipping charges and PJ discounts in those dates will be refunded through Paypal. Happy Shopping!

Holizaar Deux!

This past weekend flew by with fabric, festive music, and sales! Holizaar Deux was a good/bad show relationship. Here are some images of my space!The show was well promoted by Coralette, aka The Crafty Hag. We had some very nice traffic for day 1, not as much for day 2. Some errors that were probably unforseen and unavoidable was a fancy-schmancy white tent craft fair outside, a block away. With all those white tents, probably lost some views. Day 2 their was a charity walk going on, which closed some of the streets for an hour.

As far as sales go, I made enough to get back the booth fee and to pay for lunch. But that's it. No actual profit. The show was fun and I met a lot of great people, but I don't plan on doing it next year. I didn't hit my target audience and the space was too expensive. But it was still a great experience and hopeuflly will bring people back to my shop!

I'm worried about a similar occurence at my next show in two weeks. But hopefully with that being in Decemeber, more people will be thinking of Christmas gifts for kids and will buy, buy, buy!

Mildred Helms 10th Annual Fall Festival

It was a hit! A success! Smashing! I exceeded my own expectations. I originally signed up for this event knowing it was at an elementary school function. I had a few reservations about it, but thought it would be geared towards my prime audience. And boy was I right! The event started at 10 am, and I literally sold my first plush at 10:01 am! There was a steady stream of viewers and sales the entire day. Thank you everyone that helped make it a success! Here are some pictures from today's festival:

See that frog and bird there? Sold! You can also see the tip of the bear's ear. He was the first sold!This time I tried a different price point and tactic for the little PJ's and boy did it work! Overall I sold 19 plush items! That included 3 turkeys! Fantastic day and hope the luck continues! Most of the new guys will be in the shop soon.

These turkey's can be seen this weekend at the 10th Annual Fall Festival at Mildred Helms Elementary school in Largo. Come for games, rides, and plushies!
