A few weeks ago I felt the nip in the air and I got my seasonal party urge. I don't throw the yearly tea party anymore, but this year I'm making my lists and amusing myself with details for a non - party project.
TeddyJ is having their yearly craft fair and I'm going to try to sell some of the jewelry I've made since July. I have no excuse for how weird this jewelry is. These things demanded to be made. After months of fashioning jigsaw puzzles and dollhouse food into necklaces I did make one normal bead necklace just for my sanity.
Like the yearly tea party, I'm sure I'll enjoy the preparation much more than the actual event. In fact, when I quizzed the two friends who tried this last year, I found that if your goal is to actually SELL something you'll be disappointed. One person sold absolutely nothing, another sold a few things after slashing her prices.
Therefore, I have slashed prices to start. Five bucks for earrings. Fifteen for earring / necklace sets.
I feel very much like I'm playing Retail Barbie. Still, it's something I haven't done before.
