Friday Night Sale

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is doing well today.

I'm beginning to get back into the groove of things again, now that the 5k stick, and the EBAY debacle is finally behind us.  I'm sure it was at times confusing on your end, and I apologize.  I can tell you that it wasn't much better on our end either.  In any event, I'm glad it's in our rearview mirror. 

The only really good news that came out of the whole thing was the story behind the winning bidder.  I unintentionally blew what was to be a surprise anniversary gift, as her husband (the knight in shining armor) stayed up all night in Germany to bid on it.  In the end, it turned out to be a really cool story, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome, plus, they're talking about coming to visit us sometime.  Here I was chatting with her from my basement, and they were on the beach... the story of my life :)

Which brings me to another subject that I've meant to share any number of times, but have just kept forgetting.  If any of you are ever in the Kansas City area and would like to come visit and maybe get a demo, just let us know.  We actually have seating in the main shop area, and people come by just to hang out and watch me work all of the time.

I know it's a bit of a late notice, but we'll be having another FNS tomorrow at the usual 1:00 time slot (US, CST).

Thanks for hanging in there with us, as we attempted to dance with another, but she wasn't a very good dancer, so now we're back to dancing with the on that brought us.

Have a great day!

Update: 5:30 PM

OK, so it may be a wimpy sale tomorrow, I had planned on having 6 or 7, but we have 2 as of right now.  Worry not though, whatever we've got tomorrow will be marked down.   The only organization for the past 2 weeks that's made any money was EBAY.  I'm so happy we could add to their bottom line.  After that experience, I need someone to analyze this brain of mine, because it's clearly not functioning properly.

Have a great night!


  1. Is that 1pm or 1am? I'll be lurking if it's either. Still looking for some purples and blues and pale pinks...I have an addiction.....

  2. It's 1:00 PM Central Standard time in the US. I'm not quite sure what all we'll have. I have a rather odd combination coming up later that I just put in the pressure pot, I have no idea how it's going to turn out, you may or may not see it :)

  3. Sounds exciting! I think 1pm CST is 2pm my time...or 12pm my time. I'm terrible with time zones ;)

  4. Well Darkhorse you're in luck, there is a fabulous pink paua on sale!

    What is this odd combo Doug? The resin/abalone? (Lovely!) Or something else?

    1. I love that pink one! It was on Etsy, then eBay, then back to Etsy, and I still don't have the funds! XD

    2. Yes, it was the resin / abalone. It turned out much better that I had originally anticipated. After I put it into the pressure pot I was on the fence, but it all came together in the end.

    3. Oh, I saw that one Niki and it's gorgeous! But, right now, a sale for me is $50 and Doug couldn't make a living selling sticks at that price(sale). I'll just admire from afar and perhaps someone will want to sell one they no longer use ;)

  5. I had a really weird dream last night. Part of it included me showing up at your place hoping to watch a demo, but you were having a bad day and wouldn't let me watch. You had Erin drive me home instead. Lol

  6. I will admit, I do have the occasional bad day, fortunately, not as often as in the past. Now, if you were here watching a demo, and I was having a bad day, I certainly wouldn't ask you to leave. Instead, I'd just go make a pot of coffee, and we would just sit here and talk about life.

  7. That's so funny---I've been having really strange dreams lately as well--not to do with hair sticks, but just random oddness. Perhaps the sign of spring?
