Ever been to a craft show, flea market or street festival and had something pretty catch your eye with nary a cent in your pocket? I know I have. And, in some cases, the option to use a credit card was made available. But, with the prohibitive cost of those wireless swipey terminals, most vendors and artisans just aren’t able to afford the rental and merchant fees associated with having one.

squareCanadaWell, the times they are a-changin’ (why, yes, as a matter of fact I *am* trying to fit as many song titles into this post as possible – heh) and the advent of super speedy smart phones has ushered in a spankin’ new way to accept credit card payments. Which is fantastic news for people like me who have lovely things to sell… and who also like to shop.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey launched a remarkable service in 2010 called Square – which, essentially, is a dongle that plugs into the headset jack of your iPhone or Android and lets you accept either Visa or Mastercard payments via its industry-standard encrypted network.

Good news for small business owners everywhere. And even better news for shoppers, like me!

So, for those of you planning to come out and visit Weezie World in person, don’t fret if you forgot to stop at the ATM… I’ve got your back.  Thanks to Square, Weezie World accepts Visa and Mastercard (and good old-fashioned cash) :-)

Hooray! The sun came out yesterday. It didn’t do much to warm things up, but I was still able to take a few photographs before the wind decided to wreak havoc with my plans. With any luck at all, the forecast for this week is accurate and we’re finally going to see some spring temperatures.

In the meantime – I give you a few new Weezie World originals!

Entrance to the sale is $2, with all proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Not only is it a good cause, but each person who enters will be given a ballot for a cash draw – with a new winner announced each hour! And, really, who doesn’t love cash?

Drop by and check out some incredible hand-made items… just in time for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and all those summer weddings!

Well, despite what the mercury is currently registering – it IS spring out there. And, with any luck at all, Mother Nature will soon have a strong coffee and get with the warm weather making.

In the meantime, there are a LOT of new things happening at Weezie World. So, I thought I’d post a just a few things for your viewing pleasure!

Be sure to check back often… I’ve gotten behind in my photography, so there are FAR more new items than there are photos right now. I promise to have more updates SOON!
