Lisa August Diary

Another Trade Show Season Over

It’s the end of August, and the end of another trade show season.  We were very happy with it!  We saw a lot of old familiar faces, and met some new people too!  This year at the gift show we ‘splurged’ on one of those kiosk displays in the lobby, and it brought many people into the booth.  We are showing some really great fall colors this year, and we loved all of our positive feedback! Our tapered hoop continues to sell very well, of course it sells in tokyo and safari, but it also sold very well in grey …Read More

Keeping it real in Queens This Fall

We are proud and excited to announce that we will have a booth at the LIC Flea and Food for the last three weekends in October!  It’s been a minute since we’ve done a sale, and we are looking very much forward to it!  Especially in our favorite borough:) The LIC Flea and Food has lots of vendors selling antique housewares, jewelry and vintage clothing.  Also, as the name implies, there are plenty of food options.  Personally I’m looking forward to getting me some Luke’s lobster rolls.  It’s also a family oriented market, with plenty for the kids to do.   …Read More

Fall is Gold and Grey

I’ve been working on Fall and Holiday’s line, and I am loving it so far! I brought back a gold we used back in the day as Bellissima.  I loved it then, and I love it even more now!  It looks so gorgeous and rich mixed with tortoise and black, I think everyone is going to love it!  It’s glitzy but not over the top and can definitely be mixed in with other textures and jewelry. Our other color that we had made for this season was what we are calling Grey Mist.  It’s like a grey marble.  It’s not …Read More

Sangria Time

As we celebrate Spring I’m stuck with the task of thinking about early fall, and I went ahead and jumped on the ‘Pantone Color of the Year’ bandwagon and chose some marsala influenced colors that I’m calling Maroon and Sangria.  These deep hues are rich and very easy to wear, easy on the eyes and pair wonderfully with our classic Tokyo tortoise. One of our favorite necklaces now is Sangria. Sangria and maroon mixed with our Tokyo tortoise Our leaf wrap bracelet in rich maroon. One of our most popular necks for summer, this is our tortoise ring neck wrapped …Read More

Did You Know We Sell Eyeglass Chains?

We have been selling these functional but not farty eyeglass chains for years, but kind of only to our customers who knew about them.  Kind of like when you order off the menu in a restaurant.  I’ve decided it is time to start publicizing these little blessings for ‘women of a certain age’.  When a buyer notices them at our shows she gets so excited, and usually exclaims how she has been looking for them for ages, or owns one but her friends all want one too and never knew where to get them.  It’s nice to be needed, so …Read More

So Long, 2014 Hello 2015!

This has been a long year. When I look back on it, I immediately think what an awful year, but then the good parts also creep into my mind.  Personally, I suffered two very tough losses.  My GRAND Grandfather Augie in July and my beloved, to the moon and back Miko right after Christmas.  Trying to get over a father figure and a best friend has been a challenge, but both were so wonderful I’m focusing on the fact that I had them.  Having to see my family also go through this has been equally as tough, because they meant …Read More
