The Rabbits will be selling our accessories at Sanctuary's Ultimate Girls Night Out tomorrow night from 6-9. First 100 gals in the door get a free goody bag. Speaking of goody bags, wasn't that the best part of kid birthday parties? Why wasn't that continued into adulthood? So if you plan on inviting me to your party, please make sure you're providing me with a small plastic bag of goodies.
Who: Rabbit Hole Industries
What: Sanctuary Ultimate Girl's Night Out
Where: Sanctuary, 189 State Street, Boston, MA
When: Wednesday, March 31, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
This just in from a land where the sun comes out and people are generally happy and full of energy. A beautiful far away land called California. It actually makes sense to wear a bright yellow flower headband in place like that. My best bud Grace recently purchased the band above off of our Etsy page. She says she's been sporting it all around Hermosa Beach. Beach. There's a word I haven't heard in awhile.

Our hair gear was a hit at the SLAM market. And the foam head hit it out of the park with the under-10 crowd. One of the tots even made her mother "feel the foam head." Overall it was a good day - we met some fellow artisans, we sold some merch, we were offered some illegal substances - kidding. Actually, I'm not kidding. And yes, we declined. If you can't make it to one of our events be sure to check out our selection on Etsy.

So, like I told you in previous blogs we experienced our first “craft fair” situation last weekend. I don’t think we’ll really end up on the craft circuit – we were clearly rookies in this group of handy housewives. Mid-morning we got wind that there was a “vendors lounge” full of refreshments, treats and other obviously really VIP stuff. I told the group I’d go check it out and bring back some exclusive goodies. Let me set the scene: This craft show was being held in a middle school that had seen better years. The “lounge” was actually a rundown old teacher’s room – you know the ones that always had some random orange chair and plaid couch in it. It looked like the sort of place teachers would go in 1965 to rip Benson and Hedges into weird ashtrays. I walk in – and thankfully I’m the only one there. I see a random assortment of packaged convenience store baked goods tossed on a round table and a Styrofoam cooler of non-brand name water. I grab one and just as I’m about to take a sip - the door SLAMS open. In stumbles the Easter Bunny – no really. And he was a Westgate Mall 1987 style Easter Bunny. So, the Easter bunny careens through the door, trips over a recycle bin and does a face plant on the nasty carpet. His head falls off and reveals a super embarrassed middle school boy; I nearly started choking on my Enterman’s mini muffin.

Check out those albino hairless mannequin heads - hot right? Yesterday we got our feet wet at a craft/art fair in Gloucester.

The new Rabbit Hole sign arrived today, Bella seemed to like it. We're gearing up for our first artisan/craft fair on Saturday in Gloucester . If you're in the area come check us out or stay for the day. Gloucester has a ton to offer besides pregnancy pacts, Gorton's fish and Mark Wahlberg getting caught in the Perfect Storm.

#1 - Run an organized race that you signed up for and paid money to run. Today was pretty miserable, but... I have to admit it was actually kind of fun. The absurdness of running through flooded streets in the pouring pounding rain all in the sake of St. Patrick's Day? Running and St. Patrick's day are usually two things I'd put on my dislike list - well maybe today changed that, just a little. Kerry was a trooper and joined me in sporting a Rabbit Hole Industries headband through the sopping streets of Somerville.

I was avoiding her for so long. I said to myself and out loud - "why would I want to compete with a thousand other twenty-something dreamers selling handmade headbands?" Well - maybe so people could buy them before I'm brick and mortar or officially on the worldwide web...silly rabbit. I mean you've listened to me yammer on about these headpieces for so long, we put a smattering of our selection up on the page. So, if you want a Rabbit Hole Industries headband check out our Etsy page at - http://www.etsy.com/shop/RabbitHoleIndustries

I am inundated with fashion marketing emails all day, Rue La La, Gilt, Rent the Runway, HauteLook, Shop it to me, Refinery 29 – the list goes on and on. Recently, one of the emails promoted the Warehouse Sample Sale in Boston – I’ve heard of it before, never experienced it. But, I’m a sucker for a sale. I’ve dragged my best bud to the 6th floor of random buildings in desolate nyc neighborhoods to find weird sample sales for fleeting French brands I read about on the internet. Anyway, I checked out the Warehouse sale in Boston. It was awful; they played old Louie Devito techno and sold clothes Snooki would’ve been fist pumping her way all the way to the register about. I’m not going to lie though – I bought two things. Like I said, I’m a sucker for a sale.
I’m quite a fan of a little show called Gossip Girl – back this week on the CW. Some may say it’s just another unrealistic teen drama, and they may be absolutely right, save for 2 points – 1) the dialogue is hilarious, and 2) the fashion is phenomenal. Eric Daman has done for Gossip Girl what Patricia Field did for Sex and the City. Fashion is just another character on the show. Now that the world has finally moved on from Carrie, Cosmopolitans, Cougars and Jimmy Choos it’s time we focus on headbands, underage drinking and of course - the young fresh fashion worn on the show, like – Blumarine, Moschino, Philip Lim, etc. Take this tour of the gossip girl costume closet!
XOXO - Rabbit Hole
