Plain Mabel Update - Holiday 2005

Buy DIY This Holiday Season

IThe holidays sure crept up quickly this year, didn't they? But there's plenty of time to shop, and we hope you'll choose small, independent retailers as much as possible. Shops like ours support independent artists and designers who lovingly create so many cool, quirky gifts that are also really affordable. We've compiled some of our favorite inexpensive treats here that are perfect for stocking stuffers, Hanukkah treats, Secret Santas, grab bags... or just for you!

We've also got some really cute holiday cards from The Walrus & the Carpenter that are worth a lookie.

If that wasn't convincing enough, how about free shipping good through November 30 for all of you early bird holiday shoppers? The free shipping code is found in your newsletter email.

Holiday Shopping Info

We recommend that our U.S. customers place their Christmas and Hanukkah orders by Monday, December 12. Orders will still be shipped after that date, but as mail starts to slow down with the holiday rush, there's no guarantee that your package will get to you in time. Also, since we'll be bringing our entire inventory to the Boston Bazaar Bizarre on December 11 (more on that in a moment), you might miss out on that perfect gift you've been drooling over if you don't order early.

For our international customers, we're recommending December 2nd as the cutoff. We're not able to guarantee arrival by the holidays, so please order as early as possible.

Great Wintertime Press

We're so excited to announce that ReadyMade magazine has featured Plain Mabel and Switchring in its December/January stocking stuffer section. Switchrings make such a great gift, and are only $8. Plain Mabel is the only place you'll find them online!

The Italian edition of ELLE magazine has also chosen to feature Plain Mabel this December in an article on online shopping. We're so proud to be a part of such a prominent and fashionable international magazine!

Holiday Craft Fairs

In New England? For the third year in a row, you can come see us (and our entire inventory!) in person at the Boston Bazaar Bizarre. Many of your other favorite Plain Mabel artists will be there, too -- be sure to stop by and say hi on December 11th at the Cyclorama, between 1pm and 8pm. Cleveland and LA also have Bazaar Bizarres coming up -- check them all out here.

Before we hit Boston, we'll be showing right here in Northampton, MA at the Stars & Skulls Crafty Craft Fair! Visit us on December 3rd from 12-5, 101 King St (a short walk from downtown!).

New Arrivals

I've already talked your ear off about the holiday happenings, and I could go on for ages about all of the great new things in the shop, but you can see many of them for yourself on the New Items page.

And check out the artists page to visit some of the newest members of the Plain Mabel family: Axelhoney, Cornyness, and Zuq & Zoe.

We at Plain Mabel hope you have an amazing, safe, and cozy holiday season! Thanks so much for your tremendous support all year round!

All the best,
Tara MacKay
