Monday's News

Post show update~ Well I really enjoyed the show that I did yesterday. It was only 4 hours long, and I had a space indoors, nice and cool. The people were all nice, friendly, and the show well organized. I did have a few sales and that was good! I even had a custom order for earrings which I worked on today and are now tumbling to finish.

So it came to me how easy it is for me to sell my jewelry in person. And how difficult it is to sell on-line. Everyone who sees my jewelry always raves and can't believe some of the work that I create. It's so hard to portray that in a photo. People love to see things in person, try them on, hold them up to the light, and see the beauty of the stones etc.
Then I took a look at all the fees required to keep up an on-line shop. The listing fees, the selling fees, the time put into photographing, listing, etc. I just don't know. I'm looking somewhat forward to doing more live shows. Not sure what will come of my on-line sites, if they don't start making me back some cash!

you make some really good points about the time and cost of online. I usually sell something at shows, but they take a lot of time and energy... and usually cost too! {:-Deb

That looks like a really cool show. And I have to agree with you--selling things in person is a Lot easier than doing the online bit.

And still I'm thinking more online is the direction I'll head. =oP
