New Year, New Ideas!

Yeah, I know it’s been a while… well more than a while. I’ve been very remiss in this blogging thing and I promise to get better at it.  It’s a new year, and I’ve been doing things just a little different in the store and online.

As usual, I am always changing the store around, this last fall, there was yet another switcheroo and one of the more popular things I have done was to place a table in front of my big window.  I have been doing some of my sculpting, wire work, and soap making there for people to watch and see how I do things.  As a result of doing my sculptures in the window I had a request, well actually it was more of a demand, by a lovely lady, to teach her how to do it.  Sooo, I guess I’m a sculpting teacher now.  I taught this lady how to sculpt a Fae, that’s the old English word for Fairy, but they aren’t your usual type of Fairy 😀 and we both had a great time!

This little fella was my first Fae to come to life.

Since then I have also been asked to teach making Fairy Gardens and Wire Wrapping.  So I guess that will be on the agenda for this Spring/Summer season.

Now the other thing that, business wise, has happened is my Facebook sales.  During the holiday season I add fashions to my list of wares, Capes, Ponchos, Blanket Scarves and so on.  They are hugely popular sellers but since I don’t have a lot of room in the store to stock a lot of product and I sell out FAST!  I’ve had comments from some of my out of town customers that they don’t get a chance to snap up the goodies they see on my page.  So I’ve started a Pre-Buy Sale on Facebook.

Comfy Cosy and Bring on the Spring Fashions

My first sale started today and will end on Tuesday night.  Just pop on over to my FB page Sherry’s on Main all the pieces are individually listed in the posts.  You just Comment “Sold” the size and colour if applicable as well as your email address and a PayPal invoice will be sent to you.  All the info you need is in my “How to Shop” in Notes.  Any questions, just ask.

I’ve also started doing some Unboxing Live Videos on FB.  What is an Unboxing video you ask?  Well, let me tell ya.  When I get a new shipment of product, I open the box live on FaceBook so we can both see what comes out at the same time.  I may sound like a dork, the quality isn’t that great, (I do it with my tablet, and I’m all alone so…) but I really enjoy doing it.

I do have a website but I’m even worse at keeping it up to date than I am here.  I do most of my business on my Facebook page so to see what I’m really up to, pop over, Like and Follow me and let’s get to know one another a little better.

What do Scarves and Roller Skates add up to?


In my October post I put out a call for models.  I really didn’t think anybody would step up to the plate and want to do it.  I was truly amazed at how many ladies put their hands up and said “Me, Me, Me”  The first message I got was from Steph Warner coach of the Wellington Roller Derby.  She said that the girls would like to do it in groups of two or three.  Hey, why not, ya get more bang for  your buck (but I wasn’t really paying anybody) and have lots more fun playing together!  Turns out that some of the other ladies either chickened out (yes I’m looking at you, you know who you are) or just wanted to save all their strength for their practice rather that use up their strength on a long exhausting photo shoot!  Well girls, you don’t know what you missed.  😀

So out we got to Steph’s place and Cathy Snyder joined us and we began the gruelling process of having our very own photo shoot.  Thank goodness I was on the other side of the camera because these girls are beautiful and show off my Warm Winter Wear very nicely.  Beware, I took over 300 pictures and had pare down from there, so I’m left with, 15 that I uploaded, and now I have to pick and choose from those.  So without further ado, here’s what happened.

It was a lovely warm fall day.  A day that couldn’t be wasted sitting doors.  they were enjoying the sun showering it’s golden rays upon the land and the soft breeze was blowing that it felt as though delicate fingers were tickling the strands of their silken hair across their faces.  But wait, what’s this, who is this strange person with scarves and ponchos showing up with a camera!?  Ah, yes, this is the day we are doing the photo shoot with Sherry, from Sherry’s on Main.  Well we have an hour or so before Roller Derby Practice, let’s do it.

This is what really  happened.

Steph Warner picked me up and we headed to her place while we waited for the other girls to show up, and like I said before, it was only Cathy who came to play with us.  I brought a poncho, Blanket Scarf and 3 piece Scarf set and off we went on our photo shoot “I’m ready for my close-up Mr. Deville”

This is  our first photo and it gets sillier from there.

Steph on the left, Cathy on the right.

Steph is modelling our 3 piece Scarf set made up of wonderfully warm slouch hat and scarf with lovely soft mittens.  This is her “I’m the coach of the Bloody Marys, you had better listen to me or else!!  Cathy is showing off one of our soft an comfy ponchos, saying, “Whatever”

The Birch Tree

Steph and Cathy in the Birch Tree

Now we are getting into the Artsy stuff, again Steph on the left, Cathy on the right… aren’t they pretty 😀

Blanket Scarf and 3 piece Scarf Set

Blanket Scarf and 3 piece Scarf Set

Now we’ve switched up our pieces.  Steph is wearing one of our Blanket Scarves while Cathy is modelling our 3 piece Scarf Set.













So that you don’t think that our Roller Girls are just posers, they are posing in their Roller Skates.  See what I did there, poser, posing.  Well, ok, I thought it was funny.  😛


Since we didn’t have another, ahem, Roller Girl, we had Steph’s daughter Autumn step in.  😀  All 3 pieces are shown, the Blanket Scarf, Poncho and Scarf set.  3 pretty girls making a Totem Pole imitation.  This is one that I had been thinking about doing, and I think it turned out great!









I think out of the bunch of them I think these ones are my favourite poses.  It’s just too bad that I didn’t have one of all 3 of them along the fence.

So there you have it, as I said earlier, it was hard to pick between 300 plus pictures but I think you get a pretty good idea.  I want to say a great big Thank You to Steph, Cathy and Autumn, they did a fantastic job for me, as a matter of fact the Ponchos are sold out and I only have 2 of the 3 piece sets available.  I do have a few more of the blanket scarves in 3 different colours to choose from.  Each piece is priced at just $40.  Hopefully I’ll have a new order of the ponchos and Scarf sets in soon.

If you want to have a great evening of watching some rough and tough ladies fight it out on the flat track then get out there and watch the Wellington Roller Derby.  Steph Warner is coach for the Bloody Marys and the other team has a fierce and scary name too, Feims.  And just imagine what the each of the ladies Derby names are! If you are interested in joining the one of the teams, you can be their new “Fresh Meat”.  Go to or check out their Facebook page,

The next match is the Winter Wipeout un March/April in Mount Forest.

For our next photo shoot, let’s hope that more of the Derby girls come out and not be such scaredy cats!

Lots going on in November!

Here’s just some stuff that I think may be interesting or useful to both you and me.  There’s a lot going on this month so, lets get started!

First, today, Nov. 5th, is Daylight Savings Time, today is the day to set your clocks back by one hour.  Enjoy that extra hour of sleep!


Then  Lest We Forget.  Remembrance Day is November 11.  Find a local remembrance service in your area to honour and give thanks to those brave men and women who fought four us to keep us safe and free.

This is my Grandpa, Harold Bowen, who served in WW11 from 1940 to the end of the war.  Handsome man isn’t he.  I have his picture and one of him with his 2 nephews in my window display.  Stop by and have a look at it.

This year is a big one for me, at least I think it is.  On December 1st, our 13th wedding anniversary, Brian game me this store as my present.  I’d always wanted a little shop and he did it for me.  I had no idea that I was about to embark on an adventure that I had no idea was coming!  I didn’t have anything to sell or anything!  Brian was prepared.  He had a few items to sell, signage and everything was in place for the Grand Opening!  So anyway, as I was saying on December 1st is our 13th wedding anniversary and as of December 1st this year, is my stores 13th anniversary!  Pretty cool eh?!

And Finally, Christmas will be soon upon us.  As some of you may know, I’ve become well known in town for my Upside Down Christmas Tree.

The first year I did it was quite controversial, some people thought there was some sort of hidden meaning to it.  Nope, it was just a solution to a problem.  When I had it up the right way, it kept falling over because of the wonky floor.  I ended up taking it down early so it wouldn’t fall on anybody.  Now people come in and ask when I is going up.  Unfortunately, after so many years, my poor little tree has become quite threadbare.  This year I’m doing another unconventional Christmas tree.  I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes over this year!  And NO, I’m not giving the secret away… you’ll just have to wait!
