Order Up!

Filed under: Business — jasony @ 6:18 pm

After a few months of planning and plotting, I’m happy to announce that we just received our first official order of stock for Erin’s Peatfire Jewelry business. The Armstrong Community Music School is purchasing some products to stock their new boutique. We have keychains, necklaces, ornaments, and various other branded items. All made at TechShop! We’ve also designed and built the displays (which both we and they are thrilled with). Got the sales tax ID info all set up with the state.

We’ll deliver the stock this saturday and set up the five displays then. It’s been a lot of extra behind-the-scenes work. Glad it see it finally paying off!

Here’s a sampling of the items, and some of these weren’t finished or sanded yet– these are just the pics that I had handy:

A fascinating look inside the Communist island nation by an undercover reporter. Really interesting stuff.

‘Two wars necessitated vast curtailments of liberty, and we have grown, though grumblingly, accustomed to our chains. The increasing complexity and precariousness of our economic life have forced Government to take over many spheres of activity once left to choice or chance. . . . There is nothing left of which we can say to [our new leaders], “Mind your own business.” Our whole lives are their business.’

~C.S. Lewis in 1958
