As I type the birds are tweeting proudly and getting ready for the arrival of Spring. If you are looking for fresh new items for the up and coming season, then I encourage you to support online handmade businesses this year and search Etsy using the tag #SpringLaunch.
Ostara: Spring Collection By Vaudeville Hippie
As previously blogged, I am working on a new springtime collection inspired by the myth of the Goddess Ostara and her special relationship with the hare.
In addition to this, Vaudeville Hippie is taking part in an Etsy team event to help launch these new Spring items. A litter of leverets in fresh spring colours have already launched in my Etsy shop.
This is Violet, the strongest and most active of the baby hares. Violet and her sisters are made out of original fabric that I have dyed, printed and batiked by hand. Therefore, these hare dolls are truly one of a kind.
To discover these items and more, use the hashtag #SpringLaunch. Below is a summary of some of the other team members taking part.

Beat the Blues Winter Sale: Monday 29th Jan – Friday 2nd Feb 2018
My Etsy shop is taking part in the sales event ‘Beat the Blues Winter Sale’ this week. The Etsy team ‘A Journey to $3000 in Sales’ have organised this promotional event. Members taking part are offering a variety of different discounts or free shipping. Simply search the hashtag #TeamPromo on Etsy to discover these items or head over to my Pinterest board to take a sneak peek. Be quick though, because the offers are only available until Friday 2nd February.
During this promotion, I am pleased to be offering 15% off any of my dolls that are over £100. As a result, Katrina the Contortionist Cat is looking for her new home. Like any cat, she is firstly looking for a place to snuggle up in comfort. However, in true feline tradition, Katrina also requires a magical space where she can stretch out and practise her circus skills to wow her new friends.
Vaudeville Hippie is excited and proud to introduce our summer collection for 2017. This is because we have included a new practise poi design, lighter weight newsboy caps and a vibrant alternative to our up-cycled statement necklaces.
This collection has taken inspiration from the glorious, vibrant colours of the English country garden. In particular, this photo was used as a starting point. As a result you can clearly see how it influenced the colour choice. I simply love the contrast between the hot pinks against the green and yellow.
