Leave me a note in the comments* or send me an email** with the description of the item(s) you wish to purchase and your contact information (email, phone number).

*(all comments are modified/seen by me before they are published. I will not publish any contact information or other private info)

I would prefer if you could come by to pick up your purchases in person as I’m not keen on posting them in the mail. We can arrange delivery/pick-up details when you make your requests.

First come (first email or comment seen by me) first served.

I will update this post with what has already been purchased and what is no longer available, but please forgive me if I’m not entirely up to date with stuff. I am still expecting to have a baby in the next short while, so that may delay my response to you and my updates. I will respond to the comments/emails in order of receipt.

    red placemats, please. 🙂

    also, i’m very interested in that purple bag, but would like to see it first. so if someone else wants it before i get there, don’t hold it for me.


    1. jocelynr says:

      Ack. Sorry, the red placemats are already sold.
      The bag, i think it’ll still be here when you come.


  2. gloria james says:

    jocelyn! i picked up a whack of stuff today and i’m seeing now that the cracked bowl was 12.00 and NOT 10.00, which is what i paid you, which means i owe you another 2 bucks… will try to remember to drop it off next time i’m in town! sorry!


    1. jocelynr says:

      Deb, it was marked down to 10 after the sale. Dont worry. I just didnt change the ticket.

    Hi Jocelyn, I would love to purchase a large bag like Jodi Penner’s. I see there’s a zebra print still available – can I come look at it?
