Well I sold some things. At my small hippie shop called Tree Leaf.
Everything that I gathered in the past to decorate the shop, went hand in hand with
each other (thank goodness). My family was a big help in setting up everything,
including bringing everything in. Thank you guys!
Than of course I thought I'd dress the part (to match the shop), but than again
that is how I always dress. I had my mom and little sisters dress the part as well,
but they aren't as enthusiastic as I am about dressing from the 60's and 70's.
So this large tree was used to hang all the necklaces on. I was worried that some of
the branches were going to break on account of some the necklaces being heavy. Thankfully
they didn't and every customer was impressed by the idea of using a tree branch to hang jewelry on.
I had my sister wear one of my flower headband creations (she was unwilling, but still went along anyway). In the end I estimated that I must have sold about 17 necklaces, 15 bracelets, 7 keychains and 8 headbands. Not bad at all, I didn't think I was going to sell anything (thank you Lord).
So I made $270 from all that! Yay! I am most grateful. I defiantly would like to sell again next year
(not just because earning money, but making all the jewelry was so much fun).
Of course I had to look around to see what my other crafter friends were selling, and I did
buy a few things from them, such as this awesome all knit drawstring bag and wire wrapped stone necklace. I even made an order from a young girl who makes these amazing clay charms. I asked her if she could please make me Toothless the dragon. Goodness I can't wait for that!!!!
Well that's how it all went. Who ever thought that messing around with beads and cord would pay off.
Do I have any crafty readers? If so what do you make? I would love to hear about it! :)
