Steampunk Jewelry Sale and Free Shipping!

First, the good news, I've finally been approved to sell on Amazon.com!   The bad news, they only want stark white backgrounds. The good news for YOU, everything on my site that has a background other than white or slightly off white ships for FREE, both domestically and internationally (I'll adjust the shipping cost when I pack your order, it's too hard to code everything individually).  Even better news, everything on the site is now 25% off until Oct 30th, so you can get all your Halloween and Steamcon accessories at a great price.  If you're looking for something fun, funky or offbeat, I now have an Artfirestore for all of my random projects. I'm also destaching a lof of my jewelry making supplies, beads, findings, etc.  I often have to buy in bulk from wholesalers to get the best prices, and now I can pass my surplus on to you at pennies above my cost.  I just want more room in my studio! Check out my ArtfireSupplies shop and watch for new bargains every week.  If you want to combine shipping with any of my shops, just drop me an email after you order and I'll make sure you get the very best rates possible.  I understand that every penny counts, and that you'd rather spend money on pretties instead of postage. Here are a few examples of items that are part of the free shipping deal.

Love is in the air!

My new dog is home! 

Miss Lilly was adopted by a family who had gotten their application in before mine.  I was heartbroken at first, but I was determined to rescue another dog.  I searched PetFinders, and I found "Buddy" down in Oregon. 
It just happened that he was about 20 minutes away from my grandmother, who I hadn't visited in quite a while.  Obviously, a road trip needed to happen!  Four hours down and four hours back, with a grandma visit in between, Buddy is finally home.  He has terrible separation anxiety right now, but he has a wonderful temperament and is very sweet and gentle.  He's already let me trim his toenails and give him a good brushing.  Right now he's curled up by my feet, snoring away.

Two size 30 corsets and one velvet vest.

VERY image heavy. 

My mannequin is a size 12/14 with a 31 inch waist.  Please excuse any sloppy lacing on the corsets, my fibromyalgia is giving me heck today.  I DO accept trades on occasion, and I'm specifically looking for 26 inch corsets or any other fun steamy stuff. (I have lots of jewelry already.)  I can ship these to you in plenty of time for Steamcon. :-)  All prices include shipping to anywhere.  Smoke, pet, perfume free, clean and ready to wear!

Thanks for looking, and don't be afraid to ask questions. :-D
