March/April 2011 eNewsletter


STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMEL'S PACK~


Spring always seems to be a busy time~
And this year is no exception. I have an exciting event coming up at the end of April. I'll be showing some Red Camel Designs belts and jewelry in the fashion show at Rock Culture Con in Kansas City! We've been working hard to put on the best stuff, so look for pictures after the event. Then its back to the regular schedule of vending and trying to squeeze in some time to inventory and tag new items and get them listed on the web site between shows! Look for updates soon!

As always, thanks for being an eNewsletter subscriber!

I have a shipment from Morocco and one from Pakistan due to arrive this month, so be on the lookout for a Sneak Peek or two at the end of April with yummy items from each place!

Short Tutorials on Embellishing your Costume~
I'm hoping to start writing some short tutorials on tribal embellishments for dance costumes and posting them as notes on The Red Camel FaceBook page. If you'd like to get in on these and are not yet a fan, you can 'like' us here!

THIS ISSUE'S WEB TIP~

Are you looking for an item from a certain country or region? Soon (and maybe even before you get this eNewsletter) I'll be adding a category to the web site that will list the areas that my items come from and will sort them out for you instead of having to search for them. The new categories will be listed on the left-hand side under the 'Treasures' heading and will give you a choice of which region's items you like to see. So for example, if you want to see all the Moroccan items, all you have to do is click the category link. I hope this new group of categories are helpful to you!

If you have any questions about using the web site or how to order, please email me at deb@redcamel.net.
 

THIS ISSUE'S FEATURED ITEMS~

BANJARA MINIS ARE BACK!

I have a stock of about 10 Banjara wrap minis left from the recent Indian shipment I received. Bright colors with a bit of mirrorwork look great over dance pants or tribal skirts.

Listed in the Clothing and Dancewear category under Tribal Textiles. $65 each. Most are about 12 inches from top band to bottom of skirt.

If you'd like to see the ones that are not currently listed on the web, please email me! deb@redcamel.net

 


   

NEW STONE EARRINGS

I recently got some stone earrings that match the larger stone rings that came in about a month ago. These match them very well. If you're interested in a set, please take a look at the rings and then email me to see what earrings I have in the same stone. These all have wires that are only a tiny bit larger than regular western gauge wires and will make a great looking set with the rings. I do have a few rings that are not listed on the web site as well.

Rings $28 to $32
Earrings $25



   

TIPS FOR WORKING WITH COINS

Those of you who are fans of The Red Camel's Face Book page might have already seen this, but I thought it was worth mentioning again for those that may have missed it.

I've posted a short tutorial on using coins for costuming with some info and tips. You can see it here. It's the first in a series of short notes I'll be doing on tribal costuming. I may also add a page to the web site to collect all these tips and keep them in a central location.
