I never turn down an opportunity to take a photo with a dragon, so we made it a point to hit up my business partner Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois this weekend to get some small business gift shopping done and meet their new firey mascot!
Anyone that knows me, knows how badly I wanted to adopt him! Unfortunately he is not for sale so we will have to keep visiting him. Which won’t be very hard as we love this store, the people who run it and they support my art to the fullest!
Speaking of… I also made sure to check out my art display to make sure it is fully stocked for all you holiday shoppers! So don’t forget to stop in, shop local and tell ’em Living Dead Girl Nicole sent ya!
I am very excited to announce that I have partnered up with one of my favorite places to shop…. Closet Collectibles! This is the place my husband and I frequent during our treasure hunting adventures and on one of our recent visits they offered me a special place to display and sell my creations in their store. This gives you Freaky Fanatics a chance to now see and purchase my artwork up close and in person without waiting for me to vend my next event.
Closet Collectibles is a family owned, small business located in Crete IL that focuses on everything you could imagine collecting and for all ages! This includes stuff for us big kids who still enjoy a memorable toy from their childhood or an action figure that was discontinued that you still can’t live without (yes I am speaking from experience). People travel from all over to come to their shop because their variety and staff are incredible and their inventory is always growing. Each time you visit there you are sure to see or find something new and never leave empty handed.
Here is a sneak peak of some of my items currently on display in their store….
Shopping with Closet Collectibles means you are supporting a small, family owned business that is not only passionate about what they do but also believes in this local artist. So the next time you plan your next treasure hunting adventure make sure to add Closet Collectibles to your list of stops and also follow them on Facebook for inventory updates every Wednesday!
Don’t forget to tell them Living Dead Girl Nicole sent you and make sure to adventure through both floors of their amazing inventory! You can thank me later!
I have gotten many inquiries in the past asking me if I will sell my original portraits because I only offer prints in my Etsy shop. To be completely honest I have issues with parting with my work. After you put your heart, soul, time and energy into a piece and then you hand it over to someone else, all you can do is hope they appreciate everything that went into creating it.
Well I have decided it’s time to let go. I have decided to put some of my original pieces up for sale in my Etsy shop. Some are older pieces. Some are newer pieces. Some have never even been available as prints in my shop.
My husband Frank and I really want to invest in a house. We have lived in a town home for 13 years now and all the money we had saved to put down on a house has gone to my doctors, hospitals and surgeries. Before that it went to more doctors, testing, procedures, special diet food and medications. A house is something we dream of and after all we have gone through might have to work even harder to get there but it will be worth it when we do. Letting go and allowing others to enjoy my creations is a big part of that. So know that if you purchase my art you are helping us fulfill a dream that has been put on the back burner for us for many years.
So now is your chance to get your hands on an original piece of my art by purchasing them in my Etsy shop! Look for the word ORIGINAL at the beginning of the listing. While supplies last of course as they are all one of kind pieces. Each piece will come with a letter of authenticity that will be typed up and signed by yours cruelly!
For those of you who are new WordPress readers you can purchase some of my creations in my Etsy Shop! Right now every item sold in my Etsy Shop will be going towards my medical expenses from the surgeries I just had these past few months. So not only do you get something creative, unique and handmade but I get my bills paid 🙂 I am still on unpaid medical leave so every bit counts and is appreciated.
