Thanks to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for last month, we are also looking for volunteers for a host for the next 2 months, as you know Natalie is off to pastures new in a few months so we agreed to have a volunteer rota for the thread going forwards so could I please have two volunteers one for June and one for July please and I’ll add them to the first post and give a reminder clse to the end of the month. Thanks so much for being such a great community and I wish you all a great month with lots of lovely sales xx



Good Morning all, thank you for looking after us last month Natalie @NOfkantsCurios and taking over for May Max @MaxPringJewellery .

Finally got some new listings to showcase.


Good morning and thank you Max @MaxPringJewellery for taking over the mum duties this month!

Happy bank holiday Monday for everyone. Hubby, daughter and I are off to the beach, yay!

My listing today is very apt as they are made from mother of Pearl, some prestige vintage buttons.

Good morning and happy May
I’m hoping to be back with you although it will be with relists
I can’t make anything new as I still have my plaster cast on my broken arm
One good thing to have come out of my covid and accident is that hubby, who has been very ill for 18 months, is really stepping up to the mark and doing things that I thought he would never do again. Its doing him so much good
Thank you for taking over again Max @MaxPringJewellery I would love to help with the thread but things are so unpredictable at the moment
A relist



Morning everyone,

Thanks Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for last month and Max @MaxPringJewellery for this. Id be happy to try and do July Max, i can’t do June and I may dip out of this month as i haven’t got many new items left.

My daughter wore her age badge yesterday and it looked lovely. I also made her an oven glove as she had mentioned the one in her rented house was awful. I was so pleased when she asked me where i got it from! She couldn’t believe I’d made it. I don’t do much ordinary sewing.



Thank you to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for last month. I managed to love everything but was hit or miss with posting new listings.
Hoping this month will be better as I have now left teaching so I can focus more on this (and my other job). Celebrated at the weekend with a lovely spa stay.
Yesterday I was selling at a makers market but it was outside and the heavens opened. Thought no one would be out buying but I sold well and it was a lovely atmosphere.


My listing for today, still in middle of listing a lot of new items, it is going to take a while. Hope everyone is ok, it has been a long while since I have been on here what with one thing and another. Happy first of may to all. x


Morning everyone. Happy May day or Beltane - should we all be dancing round the Maypole today in anticipation of lots of May sales?

Thank you Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for last month and for Max @MaxPringJewellery for this month. If you need another volunteer I’m happy to give it a go (bearing in mind I’m not 100% confident in my computer skills - I’d hate to mess it up for everyone).

All loved up but no listing from me today as I don’t want to put on yet another relist.

Have a nice bank holiday all.


Happy 1st of May everyone.

Hope you are having a lovely bank holiday and I wish everyone successful month ahead!

Today I’m sharing burgundy bookmark.

Also finally managed to pack my little diffusers as I needed to get different bags for them.
I think they look super cute.

Off to soft play now, I’ve got a bit of a headache so not sure how that’s gonna go but kiddo needs entertaining :joy:


All loved up to here, so many fantastic items, happy sales to all x
