Schar's Gifts and More blog
category » Update
Hello everybody, I know it has been a long time and a lot of things have happened in two years plus. Between my own personal battles, I was helping my mom and then I lost my mom l just under a year after my last blog post. I closed my brick and mortar business along with not doing events. I am now just trying to do this as a hobby and will only be accepting orders for my resident state, currently Kansas, if not on site if I happen to travel out of state with my crafts. I appreciate you even being here and reading this. I am still dealing with various issus, so this taking some time and I'm okay with that this time around. I know my mom was proud of me and it works for me and my needs. I hope you are encouraged as well.
Thank you, S
I'm so excited for this new venture. I'm confident it's the way God would like me to be going. I'm happy to be able to offer some wonderful products from African American Expressions as well as many other vendors, including some personal work. I hope that you find what you need.
While you're browsing, please feel free to leave a message regarding your thoughts and experience, from the types of products offered, the groupings, to the prices. I am going on a whim, from what I feel has impacted myself and others the most. Currently AAE is the only line in the store, but I have 2 other vendors I am working with as well as my own creations. As I am able, I plan on growing the online options. Currently, it is very limited in order to keep down costs. With that said, I will try to rotate in some different offers biweekly.
Last Thursday I had a stop and shop event at a local restaurant. I was encouraged by the openness of the Manager to help me. We didn't have a great turn out, but my first customer did come as she said she would. Without her I wouldn't have even gotten started, again, lol. I'm really trying to focus on pleasing God, but I won't go into that. I just want you to know that you are very appreciated no matter how you give support.
Well, thank you for stopping by. Remember to check things out and leave me a message, please, if you will.

Gifts worth keeping.
Hello, everyone. I hope all is well. My life is changing. I haven't done many festivals, but I really enjoy them. Unfortunately, the same week of my last one, I found out I needed to have neck surgery. I was feeling awful, but I wanted to keep my word. I worked with 2 great ladies and I wish them well. I wasn't at my best, I just had to get through that hot miserable day. Thankfully it was a music fest. Music soothes the savage beast and helps me work through most pain. Unfortunately, I'm not able to take most pain killers. My mind and body were in a fight and fog.
I'm grateful for the opportunity. My regular job is an indoor, climate control situation. At this time, both are not an option.
Anyways, I don't want my first post to be a complete downer. I'm happy to finally have my shop set up. I currently have retail items listed, but I do have some items I made myself that I will post as soon as I'm able to ship them. I will be changing items regularly, so please keep checking back.
I hope to return to the festival scene, maybe by the end of this year. Hopefully I'll have some loyal help like my mentors. I'll need it in order to be successful.
Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to message me with any questions.
