Bizarre Bazaar

This past Saturday, Trish and I had the pleasure of setting up our lovely jewellery at the Bizarre Bazaar at Zaphod Beeblebrox.  We were treated to a great DJ, the bar was open, and we had a fantastic, eclectic group of vendors to hang out with.  I picked up a handful of goodies for myself, including some sriracha popcorn and some cute charms that I’ll be working into some jewellery.  Our shoppers were some brave, hardy souls, coming out despite the -40C weather.  It was loads of fun, despite the cold!

Last of the season!

We had our (for real this time) last show of the season on Saturday! Zaphod’s in Ottawa hosted the Bizarre Bazaar and it was fun!

We got into the holiday spirit with some twinkling lights

The lights were low, music was playing, everyone was relaxed and having a great time!

There were so many items you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else (and I don’t just mean us) There was vintage clothing, custom buttons, love maps, vinyl records turned into art, and our good friend Maiden Star.

One of our feature necklaces from the show. This glass and copper snake has a stunning shimmer, even in low light.

I danced in the booth, finished my Christmas shopping, met some new people and caught up with old friends. This was a very fun and relaxed show!

 

Are you sorry you missed it? Rumour has it that there will be another show February 13th. It’ll be just in time to remember about Valentine’s Day.

Need your Drakestail Jewellery fix before then? Never fear! We’re still booking Home Jewellery Parties! We’ll set up a boutique your place, you’ll invite some friends, and we’ll all have a fabulous time!

Earrings, bookmarks, necklaces... So many shiny last minute gifts!

Just one more show!

There was a great variety of vendors and it was a wonderful fundraiser for the Rideau High Band!

No snow? No problem! Just accessorize and be the flurries you want to see!

On Saturday, December 19th we will be at the Bizarre Bazaar pop up at Zaphod Beeblebrox, 27 York street in the Ottawa Market. We’re running 12pm to 5pm and the bar is open. There will be items and vendors you won’t find at anywhere else! Come do some last minute shopping without the craziness of the mall. It just might be the most relaxing 6-days-before-Christmas purchase you ever make!

And bring a donation for the Ottawa Food Bank, there will be a collection at the door.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Made just for YOU!

What do you think when I say “custom”? If you’re thinking of having something custom made, you may be thinking that it will cost a small fortune. That might be true when talking about mass produced items, but here at Drakestail Jewellery, we do things a little differently.

This is a baby shower gift - one of our beautiful Vintage bracelets - sized down for a newborn.

We do custom work. We LOVE custom work! There’s a great feeling knowing exactly where your hard work is going, and that it’s going to be PERFECT!

You probably know by now that everything we create is lovingly hand made. Very few pieces AREN’T one of a kind. So what’s the difference between what we’re selling and that perfect design floating around inside your head? Not much, really.

So, the big question… how do we charge custom orders? Same way we charge everything else. If you found it in your head or in our booth, it’s the same. There’s no need for us to charge more because our basic process hasn’t changed.

Do you have a particular design in mind? Or just a half decided feel of what you want? We’ll work one on one with you to discover your personal style, and your budget, to create a piece that will make you feel fabulous! There’s really no reason not to find the perfect fit for you.

Come find us at Rideau High’s Crafts for Christmas sale in Ottawa on Saturday December 12th. We’re there 10am-2pm. We can help you find the perfect piece for Christmas!

Can’t make it? We’ll come to you! There’s still time to book your very own Home Party before Christmas and New Year!
