Thelma meets Louise...

On Saturday I met my very first Etsy friend live and in person! It was so cool, kind of like meeting a celebrity. You may remember this post about my 500th sale on Etsy being made by Lorelei. Well, on Saturday she made the trip to Syracuse to visit me at the market.

We had such a great time, the conversation flowed easily and we both mused over how interesting it is to know so much about someone simply by reading their blog every day. We really have a lot of common ground both having grown up just miles away from each other in tiny upstate NY towns, then both studying art history in college and now both having a love affair with handcrafting jewelry.
We had such a wonderful time - her visit made an otherwise lackluster day at the market totally fun and worthwhile. Thanks Lorelei!

Read her lovely blog post about our meeting here and check out her gorgeous jewelry here.

Lorelei said...

Yes it was!! :) I can't wait to do it again!
Good luck on your sale this weekend! Wish I could be there, but I'll be shopping my tail off at the Bouckville antique fair.

Have fun at Bouckville! Paul is heading up there tomorrow, but he will be back by Friday.
Look for vintage necklaces to take apart for bead!

Lorelei said...

I will! I hope I don't get suckered though. I have no idea what a fair price is for a vintage necklace.
I'm not very good at haggling either!

that sounds great, its strange you talk to all these lovely people and the majority of the time you cant put face to person.

Lorelei said...
