Well, I promised to fill you in on Pam’s Jewelry Show. Pam did well though not as well as I had hoped. I had been so excited and wanted Pam to do Super, Fantastic. She passed on some insights that she learned through the process of this show and I thought I would pass them on to you.
Level of Preparedness:
Hi All, Happy Monday!
I know, I know! I’m really just trying to get myself into a good mind-set to face another week. How do you prepare yourself for the new week?
I have told you about my friend Pam before. She is a brave soul! Last Friday she had a jewelry show in her home. She worked so hard preparing for it. I hope she got a really good return on all her hard work. She has a good core group of people who come just to see what she makes and they buy from her too. Can you imagine? Imagine having repeat business…what a dream. Just starting out I don’t even have a mailing list. I would just send an invitation to everyone I know. That’s about 6 people, ha ha ha. She has had shows before so it is not as big of deal for her as it is for me but still there is a lot of work that goes into something like that and I know she wants to have good sales as well as a good time.
I’m scared to death to take on something like that, but as you know, anything I’m scared of I wind up walking right into eventually. So, there is a fall fund-raiser at my church each year called “The Holly & the Ivy”. I have looked into possibly setting up a table and selling my jewelry there in October. We will see what happens and if I can pull this off. It would be a great way just to get my jewelry out there to be seen in the community.
I’ll Keep you posted.
As for Pam…She’s a veteran jewelry show seller and after having to take some time off she is just getting back into her groove. I can’t wait to hear how well she did! I’ll be sure to let you know too.
Have a Great Week!
I hope your week has gone well. I have some exciting news to share with you. There is a corner store about 0.5 mile from my house. It has been closed for 3 or 4 years but just reopened a couple of weeks ago. It is a little quick shop/deli. They sell milk, bread, eggs, cold drinks, sandwiches and such. I was curious and decided to stop in and see what they had done with the place. So, I stopped in the other day. They redid the floors, painted and opened up the space for the deli counter. It all looks really nice. Of course I got into a conversation with the woman who turned out to be the owner, and in our conversation we talked about small business and trying to make a go of it in this economy.
I told her about my jewelry and she agreed to let me put a little display on her counter! I am excited and overwhelmed as now I have committed myself to yet more work. So, I’m on the hunt for a display and this is what I found so far.
It is generic and will hold plenty of earrings, bracelets and necklaces. I think it is a good start. What do you think?
Now how to pay for it…?
Have a Great Weekend!
