STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMEL'S PACK~


Seems winter's trying to make a come-back
~
Cooler temps here in St. Louis are making us want to stay indoors and work on special DIY projects!

I've got lots of DIY items in stock and more coming soon (as fast as we can get them sorted, tagged, and uploaded!) including coins, buttons, shells, mirrors, dangle coins and small pendants. And more chain fringe is on it's way as I type this eNewsletter. Be sure to get all the supplies you need for your spring/summer costume projects and/or repairs and be ready for the summer dance season!

As always, thanks for being an eNewsletter subscriber!

THIS ISSUE'S WEB TIP~

Trying to place and order and the checkout page gets 'stuck' and doesn't seem to go anywhere? We've been hearing reports of this for several months now and have (I think) finally tracked the problem to the website not taking customers to error messages that seems to be the problem. If this happens to you, just scroll to the top of the checkout page and look for any error messages in bright red. Follow the directions and the problem should be easily remedied.

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 SKIRTS ARE BACK!

I currently have a stock of over 18 Banjara wrap minis from the recent Indian shipment I received. Nice bright colors with a bit of mirrorwork look great over dance pants or tribal skirts. I have both long and short pieces in stock NOW!

These were shown in the recent Sneak Peek and some will soon be listed in the Clothing and Dancewear category under Tribal Textiles. Various sizes and lengths. Minis will be listed at $75 each and Banjara long skirts start at $110.

 


   

BANJARA ARMLETS!!

In the same shipment from India, I received some extra luscious Banjara armlets. These have been getting more expensive and the quality has been declining over the last several years, but this shipment provided some exquisite pieces at prices that were quite reasonable. Most have long lovely cowrie tassels that are the older variety, not newly made. (While I will be trying to obtain more of this same good quality, there are no guarantees.) If this is something you've been looking for, now might be a good time to grab one or two.

Listed in the Small Bracelets section on the web site.

Priced from $26 to $30.



   

MIAO BRACELETS

Miao bracelets are beautiful pieces, so much so that some almost seem to be works of art!

I have two spikey styles listed on the web site. You can see them here in the Small Bracelets section with the Banjara armlets!

I also have other styles on order and they will be here soon. As always, they will show up in the Sneak Peek first, so stay tuned!
