It seems like each show teaches me something new. This weekend I did my favourite little show in my old neighbourhood – Marlborough in Calgary, Alberta.
I borrowed a friends little foam cones that she’d whipped up to showcase her jewelry sets and put my bracelets out on those. The result? I sold bracelets. Since they’re usually lumped on a fairly unstable t-bar they don’t usually sell well but I bring them because they’re quite pretty. The instructions to make the cones are right here, along with a wealth of other information and you can bet I’ll be making some of my own!
Of course, last year at the same show I learned you sell earrings if you raise the display high enough so people do not have to bend over. Did I do that this year? No. Oops.
On a plus note, I now have several new display fixtures including proper, stable earring and necklace stands. I have to wait for the spring to USE them of course but hey, I can’t wait now!
