V-Steam Mini Con July 10th 2010


What a fun & fabulous weekend! On July 10th, as I previously mentioned, Lady V Designs was vending along side Art of Adornment & 10 and Six Creations and what a splendid day it was!

Albeit blistering hot, at least for yours truly, the costumes were wonderful & everyone was in the spirit of things and so very friendly. Wonderful live bands, fantastic like minded individuals, beautiful gardens & Victorian manor. I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to meet more of you, being stuck behind a table most of the day limited being about to get out and chat.

At the event, I unveiled several new items that are slowly making their way into the store inventory. They should listed at Art of Adornment by the end of the week, give or take. There are quite a few new things coming; Mad Hatter Steampunk Hat Pins, Watch Face Cuff Links, Clock Work Steampunk Brooches, a new Victorian Fan, Patina Geometric Steampunk Choker Necklace, Ladies Victorian Filigree Monocle and Steampunk Copper Key Earrings.

Back in stock: Argenta Calligraphy Pen Nib Earrings & Sanguine Rococo Tulip Earrings

Tremendous gratitude goes out to the gracious hosts of the event! You were amazing & so unbelievably punctual about ensuring everyone freshly supplied with sun screen & liquids. If any of you are reading this THANK YOU!!!!

I truly hope there is another event like this because I wouldn't miss it for the world! Thank you again for a wonderful weekend.
