That time of year again...  
Jen's Annual Christmas Sale Thing!

Important Information!

Hello again everyone! :) Once more I'm gonna try to pawn off some things see if can't make a few of these things disappear. ^.^b I have a lot of left over things this year as Naru2U went... poorly, to say the least. DX orz

Payment: My top choice is Paypal for payment. I can also take international money orders. (Well, unless you're in Canada, then a normal one would be fine. XD lol) Or possibly very well hidden cash. Checks and stuff get... complicated. D:

I'm willing to hold things (and will mark items as such) and will note when they're sold in red. And you can just comment here (If you have no LJ account, no worries! You can comment with your failbook or twitter accounts too! Or Anon XD), pm me, or send me an email via my website! http://www.winddrifter.com/contact.html

Shipping for most items here is $3.00, sent in a padded envelope. Generally they take about a week, as proven by a packages sent that have been sent off to California and arriving exactly a week later. Somewhere closer to Ontario will obviously should, in theory, take less time. XD BUT we are heading towards the busiest mail time of the year. Things COULD take longer. We have quicker shipping methods, but expect to have to pay more. (A lot more. DX)

However, for anything that won't fit through Canada Post's 2cm "slot of doom", (namely armwarmers and kanzashi) will have to go either surface or air. That can range from $6.00-$8.00 (usually I get a rate around $6-7 surface $7-8 air Surface is 6-12 business days, air 4-10, supposedly anyways. lol Surface is probably the best choice still.) Within Canada it would be $8.00-$10.00 ...Yeah, it's more expensive to ship a package across Canada. It makes NO SENSE, I know. :(

If you're outside of Canada and the US, let me know where you are and I'll see what Canada Post's rate finder says. :3

Importantish Note:: When I'm sending from Canada to the US there is ALWAYS a chance of customs trying to charge some kinda duty. It hasn't happened yet to anything I've mailed before, however, but there is always a first time for these things. I always make sure to note items are handmade etc.

Concerning jewelry: If you aren't sure if something will fit, check the length of something you wear that does fit how you like it, and let me know. I'll check length and can easily adjust most of these. My earring hooks are generally silver plate or what I sadly suspect might be a nickel plating. Also gold is brass and and copper is... I think copper plate. BUT I have two pairs of actual sterling hooks I can switch on, but will bring price of them up to $10 (from $6). I also have some nickel-free surgical stainless steel hooks, but they are slightly smaller than standard hooks. (I'll photo these all asap.)

About my metals: I try to use as little nickel as I can, but unfortunately it is difficult to avoid sometimes when it comes to findings. If you have a metal allergy, let me know! Because I'll see what I can do to eliminate all nickel I can!

Bright aluminum is not normal aluminum. It has next to no dirty rub off from oxidization. They will go dingy after awhile however, but soap and water is all it takes to shine it again. The anodized (coloured) ones coating is pretty tough, but it can wear down a little, but takes constant wear from my experience. It can be scratched with like pliers, but yeah. Mostly it's pretty tough. Titanium is pretty well allergenic but does have a small percent of aluminum in it. Copper is, well, copper. It will lose it's shine, and if you wear it tight on your wrist and sweat, it will turn green. (But I have no prob with my copper bracelet that I wear lose) A small amount of, believe it or not, ketchup will shine it right up. :D

Pretty much all my rings and wire (but for copper) come from http://www.theringlord.com and I can get other kinds of metal rings if requested to. some of my older jewelry is machine cut from him. There's a slight notch in the rings, but barely noticeable. My newer pieces, however, are saw cut, meaning their openings are flush. They're lovely. *A*

If you have any questions about sizes or customization or, well, ANYTHING, ask away. :3

Ack, I just realized I never paypal'd you for the kanzashi we talked about a few weeks ago. I need to get on that.

edit: Ok I just sent you some moneys for the purple and cream satin ribbon.

[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 05:00 pm (UTC)
Ah, I wondered what happened. :) Should have poked you, but my brains been so caught up in con stuff. Anyways, I actually still have the copy I made for you set aside even. ^__^b

So I will get that packaged up and sent off to you asap. The address with the paypal payment is the address to send to? :)
[identity profile] gibbboy.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 06:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the address on N Central Expy is my work address, which is where I have everything shipped.
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 06:56 pm (UTC)
Okie dokie! o>
[identity profile] shadowdancer09.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 07:52 pm (UTC)
Aw, someone already took the purple and cream kanzashi. :< Ah well.

I would like a prinny ornament (either bell color is fine!) and... I'm torn between Flonne cell phone charm and the Etna earring with the hematite bead. I think I'll go with Flonne!

So yes. Prinny Ornament and Flonne Cell Charm please! <3
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 07:57 pm (UTC)
Nope, actually, I spoke to [livejournal.com profile] gibbboy few weeks back and I'd made a second one just for him. So the one pictured is still for sale, if you want it~ :3

Fat prinny or thin one? XD The shrinky print plastic shrinks in various ways so one looks fat and the other thin. XD

And want just a yellow colour strap or would you like a different colour~? Or a bell? Or anything. XD *OPTIONS WHUT*
[identity profile] shadowdancer09.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 08:02 pm (UTC)

In that case, I would very much like the one pictured! :D

Um... I think I'll go with the one that has the yellow bell in the picture.

And for the strap I think I'll go with... purple. *is predictable*
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 08:14 pm (UTC)

...srsly. XD lulz.
[identity profile] shadowdancer09.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 08:15 pm (UTC)

Light purple please. XD
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 08:17 pm (UTC)

Kk! :D
[identity profile] shadowdancer09.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 08:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you~
[identity profile] nefariousgrey.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
I need to finagle some finances, but I'd love the Smaller Ring Byzantine Bracelet for $15. :3 I need to wait until we have money again, which should be at the end of this month/beginning of next.
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
Aww Rue ♥! I can hold it however long you need. :)
[identity profile] nefariousgrey.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you! By the way, how long is that bracelet? :3
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:19 pm (UTC)
Just shy of 7.5" currently. I can easily make it longer. :3b
[identity profile] nefariousgrey.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
Ah! Would it be too much trouble to make it a couple more inches longer? >_>;
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:39 pm (UTC)
None at all! :) A lot of my bracelets are a bit on the small side. I try to think bigger, but I have tiny wrists so it's so hard to judge. ^.^; lol

9.5 would work?
[identity profile] nefariousgrey.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that should be fine! Personally, I like my bracelets to be a bit on the loose side. And I DON'T have tiny wrists, so...XD

How much would it cost with the additional materials + sending it to the US?
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 17th, 2010 10:46 pm (UTC)
I like mine to be a bit loose too. :)

*handwaves additional materials* $3 shipping :) Jewelry easily fits through the slot of doom, unlike purses. XD
[identity profile] dorkage.livejournal.com on November 18th, 2010 09:29 pm (UTC)
linked here from [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7. (:

I'm interested in the stitch markers (lmfao I actually had a knitting project in my hands while this page loaded) and the blue drop necklace for $30-- is the necklace choker length?

You can also add me to your list of demand for the Wayfinder cell phone charms, if you're thinking about making more.
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 18th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)
Hi there! :) Ah ha... It was probably hard to miss! X3 Kia and her sparkles. lol

Oooo okay! :D Uh, any particular number and colours of the markers? (lol nice! Whatcha knitting?)

And the necklace is adjustable so it can be tighter or loser... currently on a somewhat smaller neck, it sits lower choker style... like just where the neck meets shoulder. It's about 14.5" at it's smallest. I'm happy to custom size it to whatever will work for you. ^.^b

As for the wayfinders, the lower four in the picture still aren't spoken for. (Terra's there is a titch smaller than the others for some reason...) If you're considering for the future though, I can definitely add you to the list. :D You're the first thus far (other than the holder of three of them), but Kia thinks they might prove popular. XD
[identity profile] dorkage.livejournal.com on November 19th, 2010 03:09 am (UTC)
Yeah, the sparkles are what prompted me to click. 8DDD

For the stitch markers, a set of five would be perfect! I'm not picky about the colors; I'll take whatever you've got.

The necklace would be for my mom, and I'm pretty sure that would work just fine; she's on the petite side. Is it possible to add one more loop in the chain to hook on, just to be safe? I'd be willing to pay extra if need be.

And-- awww yeah, I'll totally take the Wayfinders you have left. 8DD
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 19th, 2010 03:28 am (UTC)

Okay =D I will give you a good selection of colours then. :3

Absolutely! I can do that. And, no need for anything extra at all. :)

Oho~ :D You want the set of the three colours then? (I have one of Terra's, and one of Aqua's and two left of Ven's)
[identity profile] dorkage.livejournal.com on November 23rd, 2010 04:28 am (UTC)
Gah, I apologize for getting back to you so late! Crazy past few days. (:

If they're still there, I'm perfectly fine with just one of each-- what do I owe you?
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 23rd, 2010 06:42 pm (UTC)
Bah, no worries! :) I know how it goes.

Yep! I held them for you. :D

Let's see... Necklace $30, Wayfinders $15 and knitting markers for $2... shipping will be $3... for... a perfectly even $50 That doesn't happen too often. XD

That sound okay? ^.^
[identity profile] dorkage.livejournal.com on November 28th, 2010 10:34 pm (UTC)
Sounds perfect! What's your e-mail/paypal? /unless I'm missing it somewhere on your post, ffffff
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 29th, 2010 09:30 am (UTC)
I'll pm it to you here. :D Keeping it off the post cause I try to avoid getting spam like the plague. XD
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on December 10th, 2010 08:16 am (UTC)
Hi! I just wanted to check if you'd gotten my PM? :oa Thought I better check since I'm sending out packages tomorrow...
[identity profile] tafkae.livejournal.com on November 19th, 2010 04:44 pm (UTC)

I require kanzashi.

Probably jewelry too let me get back to you.

Okay! I'll be right here. :3b

Christmas Shopping
Hi Jen! This is Kia's roommate. First of all, let me just say you have some great stuff here! I was hoping I could order one of brand new blue lily kanzashi, the Red and White Kanzashi, and one of each cell phone way-finder charm (I know they're on hold, but I was hoping I could put an order in for them anyway). If you could send me your paypal info, that would be great (or I could write you a check, whichever is more convenient for you). Thanks so much!
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 21st, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
Hellohello! =D Gosh, thank you! ♥ ^__^

Yup! You can definitely order. The ones I have are spoken for, BUT I'm already planning to go to Michaels for more shrinky dinks asap this week to make several more sets! :)

Paypal is awesome! =D I'll pm you my email in just a sec here... But just a thought... Kia paid for shipping already for her order... maybe have a word with her about splitting on shipping since going to the same place, I assume? I can package everything up in a way to make both orders separate/secret inside the box. :3
[identity profile] amorsinseramada.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 07:21 am (UTC)
Done and Done!
Alright! Sounds great!

I believe the total that I sent was for $32.00:

12.00 for the new kansashi
5.00 for the red kansashi (which I just now realized is actually 6, so I'll send you another dollar...sorry about that!)
15.00 for the wayfinders (Again, sorry for the trouble. But I'm more than happy to wait for the second batch. Not sure how much shipping will be when that time comes around. Just keep me updated and I'll be more than happy to send over the funds for that as well).

As for the kansashis, splitting the shipping sounds great. I asked her about it and she's fine with it.

Again, thanks so much for doing this (and sorry if ordering the wayfinders has caused any trouble! My apologies!) Looking forward to getting these, I'm sure they're going to make a few friends very happy this christmas :)
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 07:30 am (UTC)
It's no trouble at all in the slightest! :D I knew when I put them up that the Wayfinders were going to be pretty popular and I'd probably have to make some more. XD I'm pleased to see they're so popular!

...heck, I think I need to make myself a set now, lol. *working her way through birth by sleep XD*

Ah, actually the red one was $8. ^.^a I... guess I made it confusing putting prices above the pictures rather than below. XD Whoops.
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 07:39 am (UTC)
...ah but...
...Ah, but, nevermind. XD $1 get. It's not worth sending small amounts with teh fee paypal tosses on. ^^; (they took 33cents off that dollar lol)
[identity profile] amorsinseramada.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 08:01 am (UTC)
Re: ...ah but...
Oh man! I'm so sorry! I'm super observant like that. Dang, is there anyway I can make up the difference?
[identity profile] nalina.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 08:04 am (UTC)
Lol, nah. Really don't worry about it. :)

Just point anyone else who might like these kinds of things this way? ;) ♥
[identity profile] amorsinseramada.livejournal.com on November 22nd, 2010 08:22 am (UTC)
Ok, I will. So sorry for the trouble! :(
