Welcome to Sale Night

Hello everyone and welcome to our 2nd sale night :)

If this is your first time here, please read the Welcome and Ordering Information sections up above. That might answer any questions you have. If you still have any other questions, please email me and I'll be happy to answer them.

Don't forget that there are still some items available from the 1st sale. Just scroll down and take a peek to see if there is anything that interests you :)

Let's get to it shall we?


These pins are made from glass beads and crystals and pearls. The length of these are 3 inches and are perfect to stick behind flowers or other embellishments.

Pink Set

Dominic's Set (he sure does love those brown beads!)

Mixed Set - these are a different price


I saw these at a gift store and they were gorgeous but way too expensive. I knew I could make my own and decided to see if anyone would like to grab one too.  The one pictured has a yellow bead, but I can tailor make to any colour you desire. I have plain (pictured) or an etched filigree - your choice!

Sneak Time..

Hi everyone :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We had a lovely day filled with chocolate, family and laughter.

Here is just a little sampling of what will be on offer tomorrow night. I hope you like what you see and if you have any suggestions or feedback I'd love to hear them :)

Sale Update

Unfortunately, due to the school holidays and Easter preparations there will be no sale tomorrow night :(

I have been working my little patootie off to try and get everything ready for the sale and I realise now that it just won't happen in time. I'm really bummed that I have to do this, but there just hasn't been enough time in my days to give my full attention to making all the pretties for you.

But, there will be a big list of items to buy next Wednesday 27th. I have some special things up my sleeve that I'm sure you're bound to love. I will have some sneaks up in the coming days, so stay tuned.

I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter and I hope the bunny brings lots of chocolately goodness for you all :)

Take care and stay safe!

I wish to thank everyone who made purchases and helped make the first sale of A Pocketful Of Pretties a success.  I wasn't expecting as many sales as I've had and I thankyou from the bottom of my heart!

I have been busy creating some new stickpins and flowers for the next sale date on Wednesday 20th April.

There will be different styles and designs of both and I can't wait to show you some sneak peeks!
