A Plethora of Pins

Dear Friends,

First of all I might as well tell you that I originally typed “dear fiends” — typo yes, but thankfully I caught it. Not a good way to start a blog post. Second of all, “plethora” (as I am sure you know) means an excessive amount of something, which this is really not an excessive amount of pins, but I might lure in some Google traffic from people wanting the definition of plethora. They won’t stay long, but I am in that kind of mood.

Or maybe they will.

Anyway, I had not made a large batch of pins in some time, and it felt really good to do 15 at once and then display them in the shop. Joy! Oh they look so pretty! Here are some of them.

They are neatly hanging on vintage paper cards on a spinning rack.

Another pretty thing at Sidetracked is this tree! I found it at a thrift store awhile back. I could tell it was fabulous underneath, but someone had basically used it as a spool for their Christmas lights! Yep, about 12 feet of lights came off of this tree. It took some time but it was worth it! It is such a pretty display!

A recent visitor to the shop said the shop was “delightful!” And I just sold two pieces of my altered couture!! That is both rewarding and nerve-racking at the same time. I am always careful when I make something; I like perfection. But I worry over unique items that they won’t be this or that, that they won’t live up to the expectations. But I am slowly adjusting to being a business owner. I am learning to be confident in what sells and I am making policies to give people some wiggle room when they buy something. You know. A return policy.

Well. That is all from me tonight. I am tired. Went to see the new Star Wars. It was good!

Enjoy this day!

  1. Oh Lynn, I still think your pins are the prettiest pins anywhere. Everybody needs one of your Christmas pins. I need to get mine out and wear it. I do have one, don't I? 🙂 Your shop is beautiful! I love you!

  2. This post made me smile, I had a friend once who had an 'obsession' with the word 'plethora', it was a plethora of this and a plethora of that – ha ha – it was never 'a lot' or 'plenty' or any other word, just 'plethora' – it's a good word though.
