Climate Change and mizdarlin hats...

It's a false Spring here, but an amazingly warm January, continuing past the first week in February, makes me wonder if Winter is gone until the end of the year...
Never, in the 38 years that I've been living here, has the weather been so balmy and pleasant...and deadly for crocheted hat sales...not only online, but my weekly market, like the rainclouds, seems to have dried up, as well...
I am resorting (this weekend) to bringing out the jewelry 2 months early, in the hope that selling, on the 13th of February, a Saturday, will be a bit more profitable with Valentine's Day looming, and the fact that jewelry sells better when women uncover portions of themselves as it warms up...
I'm a bit confused, myself, since the indoor venue where we sell until March is really overheated, so I have to dress as though it were June-
wonder if that is a factor, too...too-warm, coat-wearing customers uncomfortable in the arificial heat-induced indoor climate, looking at hats as the last thing they need at the moment.
*Sigh* But what can a crafter do, under the circumstances?


  1. Oh my gosh, this is the first time that I noticed one of your new blog posts actually showing up in my blog dashboard, so I just wanted to tell you.


  2. LOL..well, Puss, glad to hear it..nice to know that it is appearing at all!
    But it may only be because I don't post daily..usually about once a week or so...
    Thanks for letting me know...because i have this OCD person who constantly 'stacks' my Visitor's List with Aldergrove, BC (a very small town on the Mainland here) i sometimes wonder if anyone at all is reading..maybe i should have a give-away or something...

  3. Oh my gosh! I love your Etsy hats! I'm adding you to my faves and headed over there right now! Thanks for following my blog!

  4. I love your blog, and since we share the same name (in my case, among friends) it's nice to know that you enjoy my stuff too!

  5. I have awarded you the sunshine award!
    Come on over and pick it up!
