Busy week and a good Saturday Market!

So I have been keeping busy as always. I had a show in the beautiful town of Turner Valley on the weekend. It was sunny and wonderful and I met some amazing people! This was my booth and I got a lot of compliments on it. Very pleased with that. I wish there had been a few more people, but we worked with what we had and considering, we had decent sales!
I sold this bracelet to one of the lovely ladies that set up the Market. I wish I had more pictures of the pieces I sold, but most were so new I never had time to capture them. At least they are going to good homes with some very happy women :)
 I did sell these online before the show. I am really needing to work on my online sales, I just can't seem to get out of the stump! A couple sales a month are just not going to pay for the Mortgage! I just have to keep working at it and find a way...
 These are some of the new pieces I have made. I did sell the pretty bright summer necklace on the left, and the far right is available at "Home Sweet Home" in Inglewood. The rest I still have available.
 I also made a lot of new earrings, since I dropped so many off in Inglewood. I made lots of Gypsy style earrings and some patina ones with black brass on the following picture.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my new treasures, I am hoping to list a few of them in my Etsy shop, just need to find time! We are down to the last couple weeks of school and it's always a busy time.

Stop by again soon!

Everything looks fabulous! I love your stand for the show. I particularly love all your earrings - all that verdigris is totally gorgeous!

Your booth looks beautiful. We have not done an inside set up yet. It is an all different set up. I love the romantic look to it. Glad you had a good show.

Beautiful booth and jewelry! Love your new pieces.

I hear ya on needing to work on online sales. My Etsy shop has been mostly dormant as I haven't updated it since March. I usually spend spring/summer focusing on craft shows, but being pregnant has limited those severely! Now, I am just able to create enough pieces for the shops that sell my jewelry. I better get my pieces into my Etsy shop as I am entering my third trimester and don't see myself having the energy to do many more shows!
