Up and Running

Things have been busy here recently. We've been working on lots of custom orders and special requests. We've also been working to set up a new online shop at

What Happened to Your Old Shop?
We still have our old shop at The items you see posted on the side of our blog are pulled from our listings at the old shop. We'll probably keep the old shop because many of our customers are used to finding us there. However, we wanted to make it easier for our customers to give us customization information. The new shop has a better checkout process for custom orders. We will be adding more items there in the future.

Custom Nautical Hooded Sweatshirt
What Kinds of New Items?
At the moment, we have most (not all) of our lace ornaments up. We have some of our clothing, and almost none of our tote bags. We plan to beef up all categories. We will also be adding patches and lace jewelry.

There are some items that we will be adding based on personal feedback. For example, a t-shirt version of our Pi apron. Our custom nautical sweatshirts have been very popular, so we will probably add a t-shirt option as well as a tote bag version as well. 

If there is something in particular that you'd like to see*, let us know. We enjoy doing custom requests. 

*The one thing we absolutely can't and won't budge on is copyrighted material. For example, any recognizable cartoon character (Disney, Hello Kitty, Loony Toons, etc.) or sports team (college, semi-pro, pro, etc.) is a copyrighted, licensed property. The only people who can legally produce items drawing on their characters and imagery are those who have set up licensing agreements with the franchise. 

It is possible for me to reproduce copyrighted material if I have the permission of the original copyright holder. For example, if you own your own business, then I can embroider your logo on polo shirts or bags if I have your permission.
