sale hangover


I had a great sale this past Saturday at the Shellbrook Streetfair.  Several sales & lots of my business cards went home with potential customers.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsHalf my table was crochet, and the other half was jewelry.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsThe crochet side did all the sales, and the jewelry was literally ignored. Literally. Ignored.

I’ve been ignoring the writing on the wall, so to speak, in regards to the jewelry I have made in the last 7 years.  I had started making simpler earrings and necklaces because that was what customers wanted, but not any longer.  I am feeling confidant going back to my original style of complicated pieces, and trying new ideas.  What to do with the old stock that I don’t want to tear apart? Perhaps I should offer $1 deals in my shop?

Now to work on stock for November’s Rotary Sale.  I will be listing stock as it’s made in my Etsy shop, so you won’t have to wait 3 months if you’re local.

If you’re visiting my blog after visiting me at the sale – Welcome! And Thank You!

    Sorry to hear your jewellery didn’t sell. I wonder how well anything sells at those types of events. I’m sure Rotary will be better as people go to that one with the intention of Christmas shopping.
