Garbery Moderation

Hi All,

Just your mod checking in. I posted quite a while back to see if anyone would be interested in moderating this community and recieved absolutely no response. I regret to inform you that if no one comes forward I will be shutting down the community as I am no longer active on Livejournal and don't want it to become a hotbed of spam.

Please reply here or message me through LJ if you'd be at all interested in taking over the community, I know several people find it useful and it would be unfortunate to have it dissapear.

New Pouches, Watch Pins, & Matching Earrings!

I've just finished making a bunch of new pouches, watch pins, and matching earrings. My grandmother, mother, and I combined our efforts on the pouches, and it was a lot of fun to be crafty with my family!

All of the deluxe pouches have detachable shoulder straps as well as belt loops, and two pockets on the inside which will hold a cell phone and credit cards/money. Some of the watches were designed specifically to match the pouches, and most watches have earrings that match them exactly. If two or more items are purchased (pouch and watch, watch and earrings, or all three), I'll do free shipping.

Leather Corsets for Sale

In hopes to get some funding together for making sure our first couple of rescued ex-battery hens will have a great & safe garden area to roam in, a comfortable home, loads of yummy food and enough supplements or vet-care at hand to get them through the those difficult early stages I am selling a few corsets. Nut House Hen Rescue & Re-homing Centre are currently in the process of getting rescued chickens to new homes and we hope to provide a good one in the very near future :) If you are based on the island of Ireland and wish to give (or know someone that might be able to!) some of these girls a new home be sure to get into contact with the rescue centre :)

Seeking co-moderator

Hi everyone! It's your friendly completely absent moderator/community owner here!
I am wondering if any of you fine folks might be interested in co-moderating this community for me. I don't want to delete it since it seems to be helpful to many of you but have gone back to school and it is impossible for me to continue to maintain it.

Thank you very much to those of you who have emailed me regarding spammers in the community - I will do my best to keep on top of keeping those posts out of here and off your feeds.

If anyone would be interested in maintaining, moderating or taking over the community entirely please send me a message!

Thank you all and happy garbing!

Great Lakes, OH Ren. Faire 2010 vendors...

Can anyone tell me where I might find a list of the garb-vendors at the Great Lakes Ren. Faire this past year?

I'm looking for two in particular...
one is a small booth that sells alot of sheer pieces (tops, skirts, etc.) in which the material kind of looks like netting...they also sold some belly dance accessories. There was a lemonade-booth across the lane from them and they were further towards the back of the site.
-(sorry, I've only been there once so I can't recall exactly where everything was and I don't remember what else it was next to.)

The second is a larger booth and it wasn't too far from the jousting-field...this is a perm. structure. The vendor sold a variety of skirts, chemises, bodices, men's doublets, pants, etc. I think the leather boot vendor was a few buildings down to the left of this clothier vendor.

Anyone know the names of these vendors or how I might get in touch with them? I'd like to purchase some of their product soon, and I know I won't be back to that Faire anytime soon.

I tried looking for them at the official Faire website, but there doesn't appear to be a list of vendors, just a link to an application for vending. -Not helpful, unfortunately.:(

Thanks so much in advance!!

And, if it's ok: some shameless self-promotion...
If anyone has any Faire photos (from any year) that they'd like to share, I have a comm. waiting for you: rennies_nphotos
