October 2010 Newsletter


Hello again and happy Autumn!
I hope you are all ready for pumpkins, brightly colored leaves and cooler weather! Fall is my favorite time of year and I hope you have been enjoying yours so far. This issue I'm also excited to tell you about things that are going on at The Red Camel right now.

First, I've recently started making some jewelry items for Red Camel Designs that are combinations of new and old components and are styled in traditional designs with comtemporary updates. I'm using old trade beads, metal pieces and other old components in combination with newer glass beads and pieces all strung on good quality linen or silk for sound construction. You may have seen a few of these pieces on the Facebook page or the web site. Look for more of these in other styles in the future! Secondly, I'm considering opening an Etsy shop for the Red Camel Designs costume belts and the jewelry pieces that my sister and I will be making. This is still in the planning stages, but I just thought I'd give you a heads up on it. I'll keep you posted about developments in this area.

Web Site Tip:
Did you know there is a special spot on the home page of the new web site where you can find out all the latest Red Camel news? This column is on the right side of the main photo on the home page. It changes frequently (sometimes every day!) and contains information on the newest additions, updates, maintenance info and other things you might need to know about what's going on with The Red Camel! If you have any questions about this or anything else, please email me at deb@redcamel.net.

As always, thanks for being an eNewsletter subscriber!

This includes Red Camel Designs, Moroccan items, DIY and even my old tribal silver items!! But that's not all, for enewsletter subscribers ONLY, I'm adding an additional 5% to this discount for a total of 15% off EVERY REGULARLY PRICED ITEM on the web site!! This is a fantastic time to grab that special item you've been looking at, add some pieces to your dance dowry or stock up on those DIY items.

New Vending Event Added!

The Red Camel has added 3rd Coast Tribal to its rotation of tribal festivals! Please look for us in the main stage area at this event in January 2011!



I've just restocked coins and Turkoman buttons, shisha mirrors and other DIY items and will be listing even more in the coming weeks. I recently received a large shipment of goodies and will continue to replenish stock and list new items through the coming weeks.





Today I received a few more Moroccan items. There were not enough to do a 'Sneak Peek' but there are some nice small peices that I thought I would share with you. These will be listed on the Facebook page and then on the web site in the following week or so, but if you are interested in the meantime, please email me: deb@redcamel.net

The large hamsa pendant with blue stone has been SOLD.



Included in the recent Moroccan items were these fantastic mixed metal fibula from Tiznit. These are about 9 inches long each and almost 6 inches wide. Silver varieties sell for thousands, but this mixed metal pair could be yours for $180. Once again, if you are interested, please email me: deb@redcamel.net. Reference Tiznit fibula.
