Fantastic Sales at Sugar Plum Bazaar

As Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I am especially grateful this year.  I am grateful for so much!

My Family
My Friends

I am also grateful for all the people who have supported me this past year with my little business,
Isa Creations

This past weekend, I was a vendor at Sugar Plum Bazaar.  Each year, I hope for better sales.  I am grateful that every year, my sales have grown from one year to the next.

This year, not only did my sales grow...

I experienced a phenomenal growth! 
 Last year's Sugar Plum 2 day's sales were well exceeded just in Saturday's sales!  WOW!

Grateful to all my customers who came to Sugar Plum Bazaar.  I recognized many faces!  Thank you, thank you for your support.  I appreciate all of you!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

 I sold about 50 of these paper houses.  Thankfully, I had plenty of inventory and kept replenishing it throughout on Saturday.

Vintage Christmas Cloches by Isa Creations

With Sugar Plum Bazaar being less than a week away, I have been busy finishing many items in progress.  Among them are my new Vintage Christmas Cloches. This morning I am happy to say, I completed 24!!

About a month ago, I found a few Honeycomb Tissue Paper ornaments at an estate sale.  I love them so much, I searched on Ebay for more.  I was lucky, not only did I find them, I won 2 of the auctions!

One set was perfect to place inside the small cloches.  The other set was a bit too tall to fit properly, but that is okay because I will be keeping those for me (one of the honeycomb tissue paper ornament has a purple hat)!

I handcrafted 6 of these cloches, purchased a set of 6 Santa Honeycomb Ornaments on Ebay

Created only 2 of these.  Found 2 of these snowman honeycomb ornaments at a recent estate sale. I have one to take to Sugar Plum and the other one is currently at Pink Attic Cat. 

I created 5 of these cloches with a tiny Vintage Japan Spun Cotton Snowmen also purchased on Ebay.

The Ball style cloches did not have a ball glass top like the the tall cloches.  I added a rhinestone ball bead on the top of the cloche.  

Purchased on Ebay.  These are a bit too tall for my cloches....I will be keeping these, especially the one with the purple hat.  My daughter loves Tiffany blue color so I will be giving her the Teal hat honeycomb snowman.
I created 4 of these sweet girl deer cloches.   I found these deer at my friend Amy's shop, Pink Attic Cat while helping her get ready for her Grand Re-opening and Holiday Open House a week ago. 

One of each of the vintage cloches featured above is now available at the Pink Attic Cat in downtown Littleton, located at 5784 S. Rapp (behind the Old Mills Restaurant).  Yesterday morning I only had those ready.  Last night I finished the rest of them, including 9 one of a kind cloches  with vintage Christmas treasure inside.   I will try to photograph and post them tomorrow.

Vintage Trim Tree Ornaments

Every year, I try to create new and different Christmas Ornaments. Thankfully, this year has been no exception.  I have created many new styles of vintage mold ornaments (previously posted).  Believe it or not, I have many more vintage mold ornaments in progress and will be ready for Sugar Plum Bazaar...which is only in ONE WEEK!  Check out the Facebook page for Sugar Plum Bazaar here for tips on where to park and more on it's new location in Downtown Denver.  See the poster below for more details.

This week, I finished one of my newest Vintage Trim Tree Ornaments.  They are about 8 inches tall, (tip of the star to the base of the tree trunk). These have been really fun to create.  I love mixing materials, creating layers and of course, ruffles!

I took these Vintage Trim Tree Ornaments this morning to the Pink Attic Cat.  I am thrilled at the great reception they received at Amy's shop, the Pink Attic Cat in downtown Littleton located at 5784 S. Rapp St.   Open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 to 5 p.m.   Several of Amy's customers already purchased a few of these tree ornaments.  I now plan on creating more of these trees next week, in time for Sugar Plum Bazaar.

The Pink Attic Cat continues to re-stock with many Vintage Christmas treasures.  Be sure and visit Amy at her new location and visit her Facebook Page where you can find many photos.

Pink Attic Cat - GRAND RE-OPENING/Holiday Open House Today and Tomorrow

My dear friend Amy has worked very hard since her shop, Pink Attic Cat began it's relocation process at the end of August.  After several months and endless hours of hard work, her shop is finally re-open. 

Today and tomorrow is her Holiday Open House.  I have never seen so much Vintage Christmas under one roof!  It's fantastic.  If you live in the area, you must stop by and see it for yourself.
Visit her Facebook page here for many photos of the shop's truly vintage and unique objects.

You will also find a sampling of Isa Creations Vintage Christmas items, including many of my new Christmas Garlands/Buntings, Ornaments and hand-dyed bottle brush trees on it's tiny tart tin base.
