Week 2 and Show Prep
Today starts week 2 in my new jewelry career. Last week flew by so fast, as I was busy with the Christmas swap preparations, and mentally preparing myself for a funeral. We drove down on Saturday and attended the memorial service for Aunt C. It was bittersweet- getting to see family that I hadn't seen in years and having to say good-bye to a pivotal person of our family. But we got through it.
Came home and Sunday I spent the day decking the halls with my love. It was wonderful to work together in making our house festive. We are hosting a christmas party for friends in two weeks, so we tried our best to make the house beautiful.... decorating the foyer, living room, dining room and family rooms.
This week I'll be busy doing some major top to bottom cleaning, room by room. There is so much that I have ignored the past few years. In addition to all that, I'll be preparing for the Indie Garage sale which is this weekend!
I have a new plan.... tell me if I'm crazy. Instead of having a TON of jewelry, all different in designs- I am going to be picking out some favorite and popular best selling designs and creating collections around them. So that when someone comes to my single table booth (I'm used to having 2 tables) there will be smaller collections of like-minded designs. For example, I'll have a selection of chunky lucite and art bead necklaces, mixed media house and home bracelets, charm necklaces on chain, long necklaces with layered pendants, and some Harbinger Collection tin pieces.
I'm going to work up some stuff today so I'll share some photos of the collections here tomorrow. I'm thinking it will create a more cohesive look at my booth, and result in more sales this weekend. We can only hope!!
What are you'all working on today?
