St. Patrick's Day Blog Sale!

Two Lucky Leprechaun's - SOLD

We've succeeded in our quest to find the end of the rainbow!  And to our surprise we found these magical, fun loving, shamrock toting folks who told us they are ready to settle down after many years of moving from rainbow to rainbow every time a new one appears.  
All I can say is that they are great house guests and you won't have to pick-up after them.  Best of all...they come with lucky charms galore! :-)  We hope you enjoy!      

As usual, this blog sale offers first dibs on our new spun cotton one-of-kind figures. If you see something(s) you love, just email us at crystalandben@vintagebycrystal.com and we'll let you know if they're still available. First come first served! we'll update item status in this post as often as we can to make it easier for you to know what's available. Items often get scooped up quickly, so make your selection as swiftly as you can, you can always add available pieces to your order later.  Also feel free to include second choices in case your first choice is unavailable, but make sure you label them "second choice".  Click on photos to enlarge.
 
Shipping is $3.50 for one item and $1 per additional item up to $6.50, then additional pieces are free.  All paid orders will ship out immediately via first class mail and should arrive within a few days.  If you prefer 1-3 day priority shipping, please let us know (there will be an additional $3 charge).  We send Paypal invoices via email unless you specify that you'd rather pay via check.

St. Patrick's Day Blog Sale Announcement!

 
We're going green this Friday!  And while we always commit to being environmentally friendly in our work, I'm talking about the other green that makes you wanna sing 
"Tra La La..." and stomp to a good ole' Irish jig.  We're making a fantastic bunch of wee lads and lasses that will bring the St. Patty's Day celebration (and a good deal of luck) to any home.  We're so excited to show you all our "Pot of Gold"!

We're a Featured Seller on Etsy!

 Whoohoo!!  This is something that I've wanted to happen for a very long time and finally it's happened!  Ben and I are featured sellers on Etsy!  I was procrastinating (for years) in sending an email to Etsy asking how to go about possibly being featured, when finally they came to us!  We are very honored and love how the article came out!  It's really an extra peek into the history and everyday life of Vintage by Crystal.  Ben's brother Matt is a talented photographer and contributed some of the photos.  Thank you Matt!

Here's a link, enjoy!!

Lots to see on Instagram!

 Ben and I were urged by a friend to join Instagram last year and boy o boy I'm glad we did!  I'm sure many of you know exactly what I'm talking about, but if you're unfamiliar, it's like a blog, but abbreviated and the eye candy is plentiful!  I find it difficult to blog these days, as much as I want to anyway, that's for sure.  Ben is always on the computer doing work, which is great!  But it means my computer time is greatly diminished.  Instagram is a phone based platform, so if I find something inspiring, cute, or have something to show or say, I just snap a photo, write a little snippet and post!  Commenting and responding to comments is really easy too.  I love it!  While I do urge anyone who can to follow us there to do so, I will still of course be posting regularly (more so in the near future I hope) to our faithful and beloved blog.  We really love all of you and are looking forward to another wonderful year of sharing our world in many ways.  :)

Check us out on Instagram!
