The Okotoks Market went fabulously well! I felt very Welcome by this wonderful little community and I can't wait to come again in June and July! The people were friendly and loved my jewelry I left there feeling like I had accomplished something!
These are pictures of some of the pieces that went to new homes. Just thrilled with each and every sale! I even managed to do amazingly well even without my debit machine! A lot of the pieces purchased were for Mother's Day. Some bought by moms and others bought for moms.
I can't wait to see if they return for more next month! I will be working on building my inventory back up with some of the same styled pieces that sold. I will also try to have a better set up to display everything, I had a little trouble with my earring stand and the breeze, but I will work it out.
We ran into some extended family while we were out there. That was quite lovely! We had a nice time chatting with them. I also made a few new friends! The next time I go I hope to be able to meet a few shop owners and maybe get a retail contract or two. I am still looking for a local shop to carry my stuff.
My "French Boudoir" piece was one of the first to sell and the lovely lady that bought it was smiling ear to ear! Must have been her Mother's day gift! Maybe she will bring friends to the market in June!!
So It's that time of the week again, the wonderful Bead Table Wednesday! Here is what my table looked like last week, it has not changed! lol I also have quite the collection gathered on the floor!
On to more exciting things than seeing my mess...lol
I will be at this market on this Saturday as well as the first Saturdays of June and July!! Please stop in and see me if you are local, I would love to meet you, or see you again! It's going to be a really fun day!! Bring the whole family to enjoy the wonderful activities they have planned :)
I will have all my new pieces there with me, I will also have my pendants and charms available for anyone who might be interested!
If everything goes well I will be able to accept Visa and MC, although I will not be able to put the transactions through until I actually receive the terminal.
I will also have a lot of marked down items so take advantage of the sales and help me clear out all of last year's inventory!
I have been working on some fun new pieces including this sweet and feminine piece called "French Boudoir" I used one of Martha Eason's Pieces, you can get your own in her Menagerie Studio Etsy shop. The Fleur de Lis Pendant is one she originally created for me and from what I can see it has become one of her best sellers!
I have been wanting to use some of my collection of buttons for a long time. I used them with a huge amount of Vintaj jumprings and one of my new mini clock charms. This clock is a 1 inch circle and very soon you will be able to find items like it in my Supply shop!
I am really loving all these French pieces I am making and I am considering turning it all into a collection.
I needed to use up a shorter length of chain and this pendant jumped out at me! Love copper! I added a large gathering of Czech glass beads in various shapes with their own shades of copper. The length is about 16 inches but the pendant is fabulously long so it is a really eye catching piece when worn.
Love this bracelet! I think it has a little of all my favorite things :) French Tile, Vintaj Brass, Lampwork glass beads, Polymer and wire! So fun! This is one of those that will sell really fast at the show on Saturday! I have made similar styled ones in the past and they are always the first to sell!
