To say we’ve been busy filling Halloween orders is an understatement.

Our production queue has exploded over the past week alone, to the point where we have fallen behind due to the sheer volume of orders placed since September.

To put it in context: between January 1 and August 31 of this year, we received 23 orders for our best-selling Pawnee Goddess patch. In September alone, we received 26 orders. In the first eight days of October, we received 47 orders. It’s all we can do at this point to try and fill the orders we’ve received already, and so we unfortunately cannot guarantee that any orders placed as of today will be filled in time for Halloween — nor can we accept any requests for rush orders out of fairness to those who have already paid us and are patiently awaiting their patches.

Thank you for your understanding, and we encourage our customers to think ahead to the holidays. If you plan to buy from us for Christmas gift-giving, please order in advance to ensure timely delivery. Thank you.

The shady lane that Storied Threads will call home this Columbus Day weekend.

At the end of 2016, I hung up my vendor hat, and resolved to simply sell online. I got a fantastic new job at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, and let Storied Threads become a side gig again.

It was a good choice. It relieved a lot of stress I’d been under, and I’ve been very happy with the ways in which my life has improved.

The one thing I’m not happy with is the several bins of leftover stock still sitting in a closet in my house. So, when The Connecticut Renaissance Faire realized that their new site allowed for one-weekend pop-up vendors, I decided to dust off that vendor hat and give it one more go!

For three days this coming weekend, October 7 – 9, I will be selling patches, bags, scarves, headbands, and anything else I find lurking in that closet out of a lovely, shady booth at the Faire! Many of the items will be marked down well below their full online price, and we’ll also have items that have been discontinued or were never available online, such as head bows and bow ties. Come check us out and shop with us in person – one last time!
