I had a booth at The Glenwood Retirement Community Christmas Bazaar yesterday.
|The Glenwood show buzzing with shoppers|
I really enjoy being one of the participants in this yearly show. It is such a beautiful place and they serve you a gourmet lunch at no cost, AND their is no cost for your table. This kind of opportunity to sell jewelry is rare. I am fortunate to be asked back year after year.
I had THREE tables this year! They were covered with white linen table cloths, and situated on the left as people came in through the entry way. I met so many lovely people. Residents as well as other vendors. The new Event Co-coordinator for Glenwood, Teresa, talked me into teaching a Jewelry class there next January.
Now THAT will be a challenge for me!
My Bling Fairy was there with me. In front of her is a Portfolio/Scrapbook of color photos showing some of my Jewelry Creations, and a few of what I call my "Atta Girl" letters, newspaper articles, etc.
Here is something I would do differently! On the Displays of Jewelry Sets I had hand written a large tag with the price, etc. In the future, I plan to do a better presentation/representation for a set. (The dark rectangle on the left is a mirror...the camera did this!)
Lolita, my display model was an attention draw and a great conversation starter. She was wearing a matching Necklace and Earring set. I hung the earring card from one of those over-sized pins once used on plaid skirts back in my younger days.
I used my modified lamp to display multiple necklaces. I am so glad Mike made me a couple. I saw them on Pinterest. What a great idea!
I brought decorative boxes for my stuff. Wrapping paper, money, tissues, breath mints, band aids, phone charger, and more were right there if I needed them. No bending under the table this time to get something.
I had fun, met some new people, got some future opportunities, ate good food, and sold some jewelry! What a great day!
