Several people have asked how the craft fair went. It was a learning experience, to say the least.
The short answer is it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. Most of it seems to be because it was the first year for the event, and even though it was promoted, not many people seemed to know it was being held.
There were a couple other vendors there who do craft shows on a regular basis. It was interesting to talk with them and learn some things.
I was hoping it would go better than it did. On the other hand, I got some really good feedback about the jewelry and got a better idea of what people like. Not only that, but now I have a TON of jewelry made up and new designs to put in the shop.
One thing I hope to be doing now is jewelry parties. Jewelry is made up for it, and everything is ready to process custom orders (including a new credit card processing company, which is great). Stephen and I also talked about putting the jewelry in local stores. This was our plan before the show – that if there was a lot of jewelry left over we’d pursue home parties and maybe a local store or two.
So onward I go. Lord willing, I’ll be able to schedule some jewelry parties in the very near future!
