Shop Delays & Costumer Freebies

Its been so long since I've last updated you! We've had a a ton of advancements, but a few set backs. We purchased tags to go inside of our bags, somewhat branding them. The tags were lost in the mail and we've been super busy. As soon as I get them sewn in I'll post a picture.

I've also make a few freebies for our future customers, one of which are some cute upcycled magnets. Sorry for the poor quality, I was taking a quick picture for my mom .

Hello World! + First Sale!

I am not sure how to start out this blog except to tell you who we are. My name is Kimberly, I am half of “Mermaid Trinkets,” the other half would be my mom, Kris. We are a creative duo that only recently opened our online shop to sell our works called Mermaid Trinkets. We had trouble coming up with a name for our shop, for the past 4 months or so.

We are not finished setting up the shop but hopefully soon it will be finished, I’ll let you know. But I do have some exciting news! Earlier this week we sold our first bag! Though it was not over Etsy it is still an important occasion for us.

This bag came with a small matching coin purse to keep your precious items in. Being made from wool, these items are soft and comfortable to hold, and because they were felted they will no longer shrink anymore. Both items were made from up-cycled materials giving the wearer a cute and Earth friendly design! The purse s approximately 14" x 12" and the coin purse 4" x 5". Let me know what you think of the bag, I'd love to hear feed back.
