Don't Tell The Bride - Casting Call!

Fancy That has been asked by the USA Network to help get the word out about this new show!  HURRY!  They want a December wedding!  :)  Details below:


We are casting dynamic couples who are currently engaged, but lack the funds to have a dream wedding. Each episode focuses on one couple’s big day and what it took to make the wedding happen. The bride and groom agree to avoid all communication with each other for two weeks before the ceremony. In exchange, the groom is given $20,000 to plan the entire wedding without the bride’s input. Have no fear; each groom ultimately creates a unique wedding to celebrate his true love!

Casting Requirements:

- Must be over 18 years of age
- Currently engaged
- Willing and able to get legally married in December 2012
- Have a few groomsmen and bridesmaids with big personalities willing to be on the show with you
- No long distance or destination weddings. You must be willing to marry within driving distance of couple’s residence(s).

Please email bride@shedmediaus.com with the following information:

× Bride’s name and Groom’s name
× Bride’s phone number
× Bride’s email
× Bride’s resident city
× Groom’s phone number
× Groom’s email
× Groom’s resident city
× A few sentences about you and why you are an ideal couple for the show
× Wedding status – where you are in the process
× Current photo of bride and groom (make sure we can clearly see you both)

Fancy That's mention in TEA Magazine

Fancy That has been renting vintage china for almost ten years!  We opened a shoppe 18 months ago selling tea related items and whatnot (gifts!  :)  ).  When a piece of vintage china comes back broken, we repurpose it and send the broken china to an artist who makes these wonderful bracelets, necklaces and more!  We're thrilled that our lovely "Tea with Sarah" charm bracelet and a mention of our shoppe made it into the Nov/Dec issue of  "TEA Magazine"! Be sure to pick up a copy (on store shelves very soon!!)

Proper, old-fashion Sugar Mice!

66 days until Christmas!  If you are British, you probably long for the days when you as a child and your mum would go down the street to a Sweet Shoppe and there they would be...the holiday "Sugar Mice" with the string tail.  Nothing said "Holiday" more than the corn syrup, sugar and light flavouring shaped mice with those adorable black eyes.

Sugar mice are a holiday tradition in many British homes - often times placed in the children's stockings or tucked into the decorated tree.  The first child who found the pink mouse got an extra orange!  What fun those days were.

Now popular at fetes (festivals) and bazaars in the EU, Sugar Mice are not easy to come by in the USA.

Well, Fancy That is excited to announce that we have a confirmed order from across the pond, and will have Sugar Mice in our Shoppe for this Holiday Season!  By the way, the first person who finds the sugar mouse in the Christmas Tree when the Shoppe is open wins a free tin of Orange Cookie Tea!  :)  Our trees and decorations go up the first week of November.  So stop by and look for the Sugar Mouse in our Trees!  :)

See you soon!
