Appleby Lane, stock for the shop.......

As I mentioned yesterday I wanted to give you a preview of things I have made and will be selling.  I welcome any feedback; both negative and positive😉  One of the first things I will say is that I am going to offer a flat rate shipping for the month of June and July.  After those months I will revisit the situation and go from there.

Flat Rate Shipping:

Canada: $5 (non insured)
USA: $10 (non insured)
Rest of the World: $15
(there will be a couple of exceptions that includes the Knitting Totes and the Lined Totes, and other heavier items)

I am experimenting with trying to get better photos, so this will also be a work in progress.

Cork Credit/Business card holders. $10 each

They have a pocket in the front and one in the back and a larger pocket in the middle.  Would be handy to carry a couple of card, and some cash in the middle.  Good vegan alternative to leather. 
 Cork Key Fobs, larger size approx 4 1/2 inches in length $12 each. (Navy one is regular size, others slightly larger as one offs)
 Cork Key Fob, Small $10 each (approx. 3 1/2 inches long)
Fabric Key Fobs $10 each, (approx 4 1/2 inches long) made with 100% cotton fabric interfaced with heavy duty interfacing.  Will stand up to every day wear and tear.  Make great teacher gifts.
Soup Bowl Cozies $15 per pair (sold by the pair).  Made with 100% cotton material, with 100% cotton batting and 100% cotton thread, so can be put in the microwave.  Fully washable, but I would let them air dry.  Fully reversible, as you can see by the photos.

Blue Birds and Yellow Flowers
 60's Vibe.
 Whales and Fishes
 Birds and Flowers
Some of these fabrics will be one offs, as I am digging into my stash.  If you want more of something, just ask and I will let you know if I can make more.

Payment will be PayPal and/or e-Transfer, something I am setting up, and know nothing about😊 Guess I had better get that figured out fast, eh!!

Finally to answer some of your questions.  The Facebook Store/Page will be called Appleby Lane, so put in Appleby Lane in your search.  I am not going the Etsy route until I see if I can sell anything.  I will be putting links on my front page of the blog directly to the Facebook Store when it is up and running.  There will also be an instagram page called #applebylane64 when dd sets that up as well.

(I will share more photos tomorrow of more of my stock)

I love all of these items and your prices are reasonable. I hope you consider an Etsy shop. I don't do Facebook.

Everything looks wonderful and priced very fairly.
Waiting to see what else you have to post.
Not being a very good seamstress, I did try to make the soup cozies and they (2) turned out very good.
I wish I had you talent for sewing. Hoping that it is something that developers,

Wonderful makes, wishing you every success.

It looks good!

Jackie said...

Looking great. I wonder though if the soup bowl cozies would be better sold in sets of 4? Just a thought, as that is how I make them.

God bless.

Best of luck Gill. The bags are lovely.
