Buffalo made some little stumpwork kitty pins with dangly metal charms. Look how cute they are. You can buy these in the Etsy store in the new jewelry section. Shipping is currently free but that might change after the holidays.
We are less than two weeks away from Halloween but I'm struggling to feel it this year. I don't know if there will be trick-or-treaters. It seems like a bad idea to send your kids out begging candy from strangers during a pandemic.
But if you want to celebrate at home with your quarantine mates, we have the masks. Not medical grade m95s (Buffalo does make non-medical grade cloth masks in colorful fabrics for those trips to the grocery store. Email her for details). No, I'm talking about utterly porous crocheted raffia masks. Or needlelace masks, take your pick. Also monster hats and other silly costume hats.
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. Buffalo still has two of her California Sombreros™ and her limited edition Margarita cocktail hat available for sale. Click on the images below to go to the Etsy listings.
Easter is almost upon us. Whether you want a big floppy hat or something small and smart, Buffalo has you covered. I am particularly fond of the shepherdess hat with cheetah ears. So cute! Men's hats too.
For Buffalo (and Followers of Buffalo) there are three major holidays:
Valentine's Day is fast approaching, followed in a few months by Mother's Day. You are probably aware that Buffalo crochets flowers since they adorn many of her hats. Have you considered a custom raffia flower bouquet? Buffalo can make flowers of your choosing with some advance notice. If you want a custom bouquet for any occasion, contact Buffalo.
Note: I just noticed that the Etsy store 'Request Custom Order' and 'Contact shop owner' buttons on the main shop page are grayed out on chrome. This should not be the case. If you want to place a custom order, you can do it from specific listings, e.g. from here. I have custom orders enabled so I don't know why these buttons are inaccessible and the forums are currently read-only so I can't ask other shop owners. You can email Buffalo to explain what you want in a custom order but it's easier for her to do the sale through Etsy.
Note #2: I just checked the Etsy store with Firefox and Microsoft Edge browser and the custom order and contact buttons are enabled there. Not sure what the issue is, maybe my popup blocker is in the way? In any case, you can request custom orders through Etsy.
New raffia mask, inspired by vice! Look closely and you will see:
Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was an Italian painter who created portraits of people out of fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, and other objects - animate and inanimate. Here's an example of his work:

Arcimboldo's work inspired Buffalo to create a modern update on the theme. Behold, the Junk Food Mask:
