happy mail day


Yesterday was a good mail day! Both my hoop boning (from Online Fabric Store) and sequins (from Cartwright's Sequins) came - yay!


The sequins - SPARKLY! In addition to the two colors of 3mm gray sequins (I wasn’t sure which was going to be the right color so I got both) I randomly ordered some flat 2.5mm in gold, silver and iridescent clear.


The gold and silver are so tiny and cute - I can't wait to put them on something!


The iridescent clear are going to be packed away in my hope chest. They will look amazing scattered on a wedding veil someday... *sigh*

Yeah I think I may have opened a Pandora's box (I love embellishing with small sequins!) and Cartwright's will be getting lots more of my business in the future. The not-so great website had me a little worried but apparently they have a brink and mortar business as well. The check-out was painless and easy, the shipping reasonable and fast. Yep I'll be a repeat customer!

Cool! It's always great to find out about more good costume oriented businesses.

I agree! It’s always refreshing to find a small business that has reasonable shipping too, that has been such a problem in the past!

I was a little worried about the shady website at first but I have always had great service from them.

Yeah I'll admit I was a little hesitant to order with such a crappy website but I was pleasantly impressed with the experience... I'll be back! :>
