Our First Day .......

Well, today was the day that Tam and I launched our 'Private Showings" - I am not really sure what to call it, just NOT 'party plan'.

We had a lovely group of ladies who were all very friendly and very chatty. Just wished they had maybe bought a bit more.

Anyway, it is definitely not TUPPERWARE, not that there is anything wrong with Tupperware but we are just not selling like that.

It was a bit of a learning curve - I sold some things - it would have been better if I had sold more. So much preparation goes into a day like today - maybe it will get easier as we get better at it.

Maybe there is another way of selling my stuff. I thought of an Etsy Shop or a Shop at my website. Anyway, my thinking cap is on. Does anyone have any better ideas or suggestions. I would love to hear from you if you do.

I have also uploaded a heap of photos onto Flickr of some more recent things that I have made.

Your drawstring pouch with balloon fabric is gorgeous. Have you tried getting a stall at your local markets?

What a shame you didn't sell more - your work is beautiful. Etsy seems to work well for many crafters.

Etsy is definitely worth a try - I have had a store since I opened the one linked to my blog. I don't have a link to it on my site as I was trying to work out which was the best option. Even without any link ,it has done quite well. I am just considering whether to move everything across to Etsy or keep both stores...
I think it makes the whole payment system easier as the site does most of the work for you.
