Signing off for now...Merry Christmas

Well 2009 has been an eventful year for us at My Poppet. We welcomed Emma into the world in April and look at her now, quite the young lady, sitting up all on her own. Ahh… they grow up so quickly!
I’d like to thank everyone for your support throughout the year and hope that you and your family have a lovely and relaxing festive season.

The store will be closing for summer holidays from 2pm on Christmas Eve and will re-open for normal trade on Wednesday the 27th of Jan (day after Australia Day)
But fear not,
Poppet in the Post will be open 24 hours a day if you need anything, and I’ll be posting out orders regularly over the break.

Still haven’t done your Christmas shopping? Well you’d better get cracking, probably too late for postal deliveries now, but you can take advantage of the great ‘3 for 2 clothing sale’ in the store till Thursday.

The my Poppet blog will have a little break over January, but you can still catch up with my crafty goings on at Made of Cloth...

Have a lovely break and I’ll see you all in the New Year
Cheers Cintia

Because I don't have enough on my plate...

For all you fabric fiends...introducing Made of Cloth...


I've been busy...

Sewing up a storm of custom orders...for customers, gifts and a very exciting photo shoot, (more about that later if it ever eventuates).

I can't squeeze anymore custom orders in before Christmas, I need to get the house ready for Christmas Eve guests. But am happy to take orders in the new year, and will have them ready when the shop re-opens.

Best flea market find ever!...

I started hyperventilating when i spotted these little quilts, doing my best to act all nonchalant and restrain myself from doing a little 'yipee, what a clever girl you are' dance. Didn't want to look daft! Come on some of you out there must be able to relate.
Anyway these little mini quilts have got to me my favorite flea market find to date. And the best thing is there are 6 of them so i can keep one for Emma and share the love.

I still haven't decided which to keep for Emma, they all have some pretty fantastic pieces of vintage fabric in them, keep changing my mind, would love to keep them all, but don't really require 6 dolls quilts!

Up for sale now on Poppet in the Post.

Choc o block...

Spent most of the day trying to find room for all the newly arrived stock at the shop today. Didn't even get to eat lunch.
Lots of totally ace new toys, Pirate Play set is my favorite, check them out online.
Also just in, these bright stretched canvas artworks. Birds $80 each, giraffe creature $90 (sorry bad pic, was getting dark) look fantastic in real life, colours are really vivid.Cool new boys t's will post picks soon, sneak peek here

Now can some one tell me what's wrong with green, whenever i get a big batch of cups in, the green and blue ones are always the last to go. I really think they are quite nice and look really good mix n matched like this...more good stuff tommorow...
