Shop Closed for a While.

The Ole Curiosity shop is on leave for a while due to some family needs and work difficulties. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

If you are really interested in one of my products, and are willing to wait longer for a product to arrive, you can feel free to email me at rosecraft320.incATgmail.com to place an order.

Just realize that I might not be able to get back to you right away, but am very interested in your business as much as I can be while away. I will see you all again in mid-July!

Literature and Spring.

Hello Readers!

Just wanted to share some of my new favorite spring quotes with you. I found some that I really like, and all are by much beloved literature authors!

The 1st is by the author of The Secret Garden: Frances Hodgsen Burnett.
 
"It is the sun shining on the rain, and the rain falling on the sunshine."


The 2nd is by the author of the well known Tom Sawyer: Mark Twain.

"In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours." 


The 3rd is by the author of Anne of Green Gables: L.M. Montgomery.

"That is one good thing about this world...there will always be more springs."


The 4th is by my favorite literary author, and my 8th great uncle, William Shakespeare.

"April hath put a spirit of youth in everything."




And the last quote that I want to share with you speaks of one of my favorite literary characters of all time; Goldberry from The Lord of The Rings.

"O spring-time and summer-time, and spring again after. O wind on the waterfall, and the leaves laughter." -J.R.R Tolkien

So literary nut that I am, those are some of my newest quotes this spring season. And I love the fact that they go along with the bright green grass outside. What are some of your favorite spring quotes?

April Greetings!

April is a new month, and with the spring comes new determination. A determination to keep a shop and a life going that has been too long dormant. With the sun outside, and the grass turning green, so must a broken spirit be lightened and made new again.

Greetings visitors to my shop! I am very happy that April, along with spring is here, and I want to make April for my business a greeting month. So this month is going to be all about Greeting Cards at the Ole Curiosity Shop, as you will soon see with new Spring Greeting Cards that have been too long delayed, along with other greeting cards of many kinds.

In fact, my top selling product so far has been one of my sets of greeting cards.


There are already a couple of other sets of cards at my shop, and you will be seeing more coming soon! You will also find if you head on over to my Weekly Rollback tab, that I am having more than one discount on greeting cards this month.

Many of my cards also come with hand-calligraphic design, and can be customized as you might like. 
If you want to see more of my cards or other fun items, head on over to my Etsy shop. Hope to see you there, and wishing you all a lovely spring!

20% off a Custom-Made Paper Quilt Notebook!!!

When first setting up my shop and creating products, I had a friend recommend an idea for a product and I fell in love with this idea.

Everyone loves notebooks, right? And this friend of mine showed me a notebook that she had taken and decorated and asked me if maybe I could do something similar that was a little more fitting to my brand.

So I took my love of paper quilts, and my love of personal notebooks, and killed two birds with one stone with this product. And the best part is this makes a wonderful custom gift. I can make this a variety of different ways.

  • Your color choice Paper Quilt Cover
  • Back empty or also decorated
  • Personal calligraphy message inside or out
  • Cover with favorite quotes/quotes rather than or in addition to quilt design 
  • Etc, Etc, Etc....
 So this week I have a coupon code that will take 20% off an order of a custom made notebook(s).

Coupon Code: CUSTOMWRITER

Hop on over to my Etsy store to get more info on this product or many more. Hope to see you there!
