Thank You For Stopping By

Another League of NH Craftsmen's Annual Fair is in the history books and now, Children's Couture is "home sweet home." The Showroom reopened last Thursday, August 13th and will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10-4 for the remainder of the year. Please stop by when in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire ... we'd love to see you. New fall and winter pieces will be added to the line on a weekly basis come September, with many new styles to thrill your tween. It's never too early to shop for the holidays! If you cannot get to the Showroom, always feel free to call or email with any questions ... I'm here to help.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came by my booth at the League of NH Craftsmen's Fair. It was a delight to see new faces and have a moment to chat with the public about my work. I thank you for your "awesome" comments and reaction, and do hope you will help me spread the word about Children's Couture.
I'd also like to thank all of my returning customers for their continued support. Your presence really says it all ... that Children's Couture produces quality apparel and accessories that not only delight the child, but the adult(s) as well. Seeing all of you again this year really made my days. Thank you again for your ongoing support of my work and coming by my booth to share your photos and stories.
Now it's time to go to work ... I hope to see or hear from you soon!

Seeing Hats

We are seeing and selling lots of hats. Tis the season according to Glamour Magazine, which features Miley Cirus, Jennifer Aniston, Beyonce, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Richie in fitting fedoras in the September issue.

Remember Children's Couture hats are not just for children. They can be created for teens and adults too!! Pick a hat design, pick your favorite fabric, and provide a head circumference measurement...that's all the CC team needs. For more information check out Accessories on the CC website.

Cheshire Hat - Is it a cloche? Is it a fedora? You determine the style by wearing the brim flipped up or down around the face.

Wrapping up at the Fair

Our final day at the League of NH Craftsmen's Fair. Feeling good about seeing a lot of familiar faces, making new friends, checking in with fellow craftsmen and the weather! Keeping fingers and toes crossed it will hold out till we've got the car packed this afternoon.

A return customer in a Let's Dance Sundress and matching Garden Party Hat in a dot fabric. She and her mom love the playful fabrics, details handiwork and that the items are machine washable. This little girl loved her dress and hat so much she wore them out of the booth. My kind of shopper!

From the Sunapee Fair

Blogging to you from the 76th Annual N.H. Craftsmen's Fair at the Sunapee Resort in Newbury, N.H. The organizers say the fair goes on rain or shine and let me tell you it really does! We delivered and set up the booth frame-work on Thursday, August 30. Quick, but important thank you to our friend John who helped us! What a trooper! It was a nice sunny day and everything went smoothly much as you can imagine to our relief! Friday we went back with more clothing and display pieces and...well the minute we got into the tent and our booth space, the skies opened up and it poured non-stop from 10:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We thought about getting a canoe to ride the river (no joke) going through the middle of our booth. We managed to stick it out and when we found out a few booths in other tents were flooded we realized how fortunate we were the situation was not worse in our space.

Happily everything and as far as we know everyone is back on track. The sun has been out all day and not a spot of rain anywhere!

A few pictures from the fair. Hope to see you here!!
