Classic best sellers

Anyone familiar with Mardi Gras in New Orleans knows that the special throw for Zulu is hand-decorated coconuts.  Outside of that, most throws were beads, cups, trinkets, and doubloons.  Well, all of that changed with the start of the Krewe of Muses in 2000.

 

KREWE OF MUSES DECORATED SHOES

Muses returned to hand decorated throws with shoes they decorated themselves.  The image shows an example of shoes for the Muses parade.  Paint, glitter, feathers, stones, appliqués, faces, and decorative pieces combined with creativity produce some remarkable designs that revelers will almost die for.

 

 

Paint and glitterMardi Gras magnets fro decoration are easy to find, but what about the rest of the components?  Perhaps the hardest components to find are the decorative pieces that really add pizzazz to the shoes.  An easy addition to the shoes that makes a statement is Mardi Gras face magnets.  Twenty available styles provide different looks.

 

Mardi Gras feather pins

Feather pins are another way to make fabulous shoe designs fast and easy.  A favorite is the pin shown, which comes in Mardi Gras colors. Add this pin to the shoes and you are half finished with decorating.

 

KREWE OF NYX DECORATED EVENING BAGS

Muses is s women’s Krewe that soon filled to capacity, so a new Krewe called Nyx started in 2011.  The overflow rapidly brought membership in this Krewe to capacity.  Their signature throw is decorated evening bags.  Their colors are hot pink and black, so this is a popular combination in their hand-decorated bags.  Decorating bags for the Krewe of Nix can be fast and affordable using decorations above and bags from the evening bag selection.

To keep cost reasonable, crafters can choose bags marked down to $6.75 and add decorations shown for a total cost of under $10.  Several different evening bags in the mark down election offer a variety of styles and colors.

 

KREWE OF ATHENA DECORATED FEDORAS

Last year a new women’s Krewe started up–The Krewe of Athena.  They introduced hand-decorated fedoras as another signature throw.  This has grown into a major Krewe.  So where can crafters find enough fedoras for the throws they need?  Accessory Wholesale has a recent shipment of nearly 1,000 fedoras starting at $4.75 wholesale.

 

The variety of styles and colors allows for plenty of creative designs.   Most of the components including the gold appliqués and jester face can also be found at awnol.com.

Women’s Krewes are reinventing creative throws for the first time since the Zulu coconut.

Greetings!

Sales figures for most small fashion businesses experienced a continuous slide over the last few years. But something is happening now that points to a big improvement in business ahead–not in the distant future, but starting right now. Falling gas prices are putting a big chunk of money back in consumers’ pockets. Market Watch uses Goldman Sachs research to predict households will save $1,100 a year with gas prices at $2.80 in 2015. Prices are already hitting $2.00 per gallon in Louisiana, which means the savings to the average household will be far greater than $1,100.

In addition, lower fuel prices can also translate to reduced prices in utilities, manufactured goods, groceries, and any other consumer goods that move by truck. The flip side is some loss of jobs because of cutbacks in the oil industry. This is regrettable. But if oil is at $65 per barrel, most companies can continue to operate profitably and consumers can benefit from savings. Quartz.com reports that every time oil prices fell in modern times, it spurred the economy. A robust economy grows more jobs, more paychecks, and more consumer spending. .

So with a rosy outlook for the economy, what do we need to have in the showcases now? The answer is the subject of this newsletter.

Mardi Gras Balls, Prom, and Pageant
Demand for crowns and tiaras begin now and continue until summer. The Mardi Gras and Homecoming Crowns hardest item to find is mens crowns. Mardi Gras, prom, and festival kings all call for men’s crowns. The cost of quality crowns can go up to several hundred dollars. Fortunately, you have a source with several choices in quality men’s crowns below $85.

Local stores have an advantage over online stores in this market. The king wants to see how the crown looks on and how it fits. Only the local store can offer these options to customers before they buy the crown. A favorite is the one shown that comes in gold or silver plating.

Adjust crowns that are too large by adding padding inside. The easiest way to do this is weather stripping that sticks to the inside of the crown on one side and has foam on the other side. This also makes the crown more comfortable to wear.

Tiaras are even more important because they have a bigger customer base. Brides, pageant winners, maids and other members of Mardi Gras courts, as well as members of homecoming courts are all potential customers for tiaras. Other needs for tiaras are quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, and bachelorette parties. fleur-de-lis scepter
