This Saturday is the Seventh annual holiday Craftacular in Madison! I am sooo excited!! I love this show! :) Come & see me as well as over 50 vendors from all over!

& this Saturday is my very last gallery walk open as a shop! I just realized this the other day or I would have planned something big!
My shop will be open as my husband will be working the shop (while I am at the Craftacular)...please be patient as he is new to running the shop & doing me a huge favor! ;)
I am hoping to be back from Madison by 7pm so until then he will have the shop open 6-9pm. I will have cookies & snacks to celebrate the holidays!

My very last day of business at 219 Market st. Oshkosh will be Dec. 24th as I have to move out of my shop the next week! I will then be in my new space (downtown Appleton) early January with hopes to open mid January early February!

Small business Saturday!

Today is small business Saturday! Please shop local & support your locally owned businesses! I don't think anyone is really happy with the economy right now & one way to change that is to spend your money at Mom & Pop shops! We are tax payers, We have kids in our schools, we own homes & most of all we spend the money we make in our community, all of those things make our economy grow!

Locally owned businesses don't have corporate offices to deal with, we are it, we go out of our way to give you excellent customer service & most of the time we know your name & want to build a relationship.. not just take your money!
I know I feel sooo lucky to have a growing business in a tough economy! I am sooo thankful for all of my customers wether you have been in my shop 100 times or just once! :)

Thank you all for supporting small businesses like mine! My shop is open 10-3 today!! Have a great day! xo!

My soon to be new shop!!!

You may have noooo idea what I am talking about unless you follow me on Facebook or Twitter! Yes.. you heard me right! This is my new shop space as of the 1st of the year! I am soooo excited dainty daisies is relocating to downtown Appleton (227 E. College ave.)! I hope to open the new shop mid January to early February! I will keep my current shop open until the end of December! I have lots of pretty accessories for the holidays as well as vintage!

I think one of the things I am most excited about is the new shop has a classroom, I will be hosting regular craft nights, classes, trunk shows & you can rent the space for crafty birthday parties! I am also hoping to add more vintage & menswear! I can't wait to get in the space & make it my own. The current occupants of the Bead garden are two super sweet women that have been sooo nice to me! It is really good vibes all around & I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason! To all of you that say well you sure do move alot. You have to move, make changes to grow as a business, you also have to take risks to figure out what is going to work & people get bored if you don't change. ;) I like to keep people on their toes! I really hope to make this new space a permanent home so hopefully that will mean no moving around for a long time.

I have lots of ideas so stay tuned!!

Holidays.. feathers & yummy scents!

I apologize for the little blog break, life has been nothing but a little bit crazy lately! I worked all day yesterday on the shop getting all of the Christmas decorations up! It looks so fun & festive! I loooove Christmas decorations!

Here are a few things that I have been working on & are now at my shop!

New feather ornaments w/ a little but of (fake) snow for good measure!It was really hard to get a pic. with the glare, so you will just have to stop in to see how cute they really are! ;) These are soo adorable & yes I guess I am on board with the feather goods now that I have made a few things that reflect my style.

& speaking of feathers these are so fun.. they are on a base that works as a hair clip or brooch! I love the way these turned out!

I loooove this headband! It is sooo pretty & would be the perfect accent to any holiday attire!

I also made some yummy YUMMY smelling wax melts in the shapes of trees for those wax warmers that are pretty popular right now! I have them available in sets of 5.They make GREAT gifts! There is Candy Cane, Cappuccino Hazelnut, Banana Nut & Gingerbread! I also made a few new tin scents as well as put a few of the older scents on sale for $4. while they last!

Shop hours are 11-6 today! Stop on down & check out all my new inventory!! I also have some news to share if you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook you may not know. I will be back later with that!
