shop update recap

All of the clothes in the shop update this morning sold out incredibly quickly, and I know that some of you were very disappointed.  I can understand your frustration.  Since everything I do is handmade and very time-consuming (especially the hand-dyed pieces), I don't have a large inventory.  I try my best but can't make everyone happy.  I'm so sorry if some of my customers feel like they missed out.  I needed to get rid of my inventory before I move in a few days, but as soon as I can get my studio unpacked in Iowa I plan on sewing more pieces so that those of you who are willing wait a couple of weeks can buy something too.

I still have a few of the MCMC fragrances left though, which is exactly why I'm carrying other products in my shop now.  I hate to have an empty shop with nothing for my dear customers.  I should also let you know that something super exciting is coming up in a few days!  I'm going to let you in on the details of an exciting Wiksten limited edition collaboration very soon, and there will be more garments to buy, I promise.

Congratulations on another great sale! Unfortunately, I didn't know exactly when the shop would open this morning, so I missed it by a few minutes and everything I'd wanted was gone. But that just means you're doing something right! Everyone wants a piece! I look forward to trying my luck again in the future. Good luck with the move!

I was updating that page every two seconds, I was so determined to get in there first! I am so thrilled to own my first (of many, I hope!) Wiksten pieces. Thank you, Jenny!

Sad to have missed snagging one of your pieces, but VERY excited about getting my Maui and Hunter fragrances! When you said they were great for girls who don't like perfume, I was sold :) If you ever decide to offer one of the dresses as a pattern, I would be ecstatic, I absolutely love your patterns!

Congrats on the popularity of your pieces! :)

Carolanne said...

So happy to hear about this. I promised myself a Wiksten summer dress if I got the job that I just applied for. I'm first in line. Good luck with the move :)

The Hunter fragrance went before I had a chance to buy though I did get the Maui. Any chance you'll be able to offer the Hunter again in the future?

thanks!

Are you planning on putting any of the extra MCMC fragrances up again? I'd love to get my hands on one of the Maui ones!

I've been out of the loop lately after having a new baby, but I just clicked over to look at the new collection and almost fell out of my chair! You've really outdone yourself! What a talent.

sandra said...

wow! what a great sale! i hope the move will be fun and that you'll settle quickly in your new home (says a lady who's almost been in her "new" home for 6 months and still hasn't settled yet) :)

Jenny, that was incredible! I was refreshing the page this morning and saw the maintenance message, so I figured you were updating. Then, boom, I refreshed and everything but one piece was gone. I couldn't believe my eyes! Congratulations on such a successful collection.

Pleased to hear you're making more, and hoping I'm lucky enough to get my favorite piece next time. (Next time I won't try to multi-task while shopping. I should have known you have to be focused like a laser beam!)

Cheryl said...

Congratulations! The pieces were amazing...i will try again the next time :) Good luck with the move!

Congratulations Jenny! It's sad that some missed out but what a success for you!!
Hope your move goes smoothly and you can restock soon :)
Also, I'm with needleandstring, it'd be so great if you decided to offer another pattern for sale some time!

I was away from my computer all day but primed my mother with exact instructions about when to look, what I wanted and and what size. But I forgot to mention the 'updating for maintenance screen' so it confused her and she rang me at the crucial time!!

Good luck with your move. Hope you and Joe settle in quickly.
