Etsy Pop Up Shop


Way back in November, I found out that one of my items was going to the Etsy Pop Up Shop in Soho, New York in December.  My item, a sign, wasn't going to be offered for sale there, but it was part of the display.  My fellow Etsy teammate, Karen of smallearthvintage actually had some items for sale in the Etsy Pop Up shop, and was able to travel to New York to see the shop in person.  She was able to get a picture my "REGISTRY" sign on the Etsy shop's wall full of signs. It is just to the left of the "T" in the picture below.  Thanks Karen...I was thrilled to see this!  You can can read more about her trip here.

InStyle Magazine (and a coupon!)

Bellalulu is IN November's InStyle magazine.  Wow, I can't believe it.  Printed in the magazine is a coupon code for 20% off, and I wanted to make sure and share that with you.  Use code STYLE20 for 20% off for a limited time only. 
If you are bored at the checkout lane, look for InStyle Magazine (page 272) with my friend Halle Barry on the front.  Okay, she's not really my friend, but hey, we're in the same magazine!

FAUX fun.


Isn't FAUX fun?
A year or so ago, I came across my first Osa Johnson book at my local Flea Market.  It was I Married Adventure, and it has a faux tiger cover.  I had to have it!  Since then, I've collected a couple more (as seen above and here).  They make great photography props.  And I love them.

She also has a book called Four Years in Paradise with a faux giraffe cover, and it is equally wonderful.

Etsy has a great selection of faux deer:




1. cartbeforethehorse's cloth sculpture deer.  2. oelwein's pink antler tea towel
3. manafkamina's crochet deer head  4. and I loved these faux deer head souvenirs I sold not long ago

What is your favorite faux find?

How 4 little old bunsen burners became famous...


Almost a year ago, I sold these 4 old bunsen burners.  It wasn't a typical sale though.  The customer wanted me to overnight them.  My husband was standing near when I was reading that request.  Really?  Someone wants some old bunsen burners, and wants them overnighted?  He got a chuckle out of that. 
Well, as I convo'ed back and forth with the customer, I realized they were headed somewhere pretty neat.  To Universal City, CA.  To the set of CSI.  For Ted Danson's character's office. 
And that's exactly where they ended up (squint really hard and follow the arrow)...they're famous!  Hi there Ted!  I feel like we know each other now, you know, kind of like how I know Harrison Ford

Happy 4th!



Isn't she a doll? A very sweet customer purchased this old red, white and blue baton from the shop for his daughter to use in a parade. Her outfit is just darling, and I'm so glad the baton went to such a perfect home! I do love red, white and blue, don't you? All of the items below are still available in here! Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
