1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Ideas for small things to sell? on: September 14, 2008 03:54:01 PM
I think it depends on your items Dangerous.  We have a $3 of 2 for $5 earring section (mainly for kids and teens) and we also have $1 and $1.25 buttons/pins that we sell.  Depending on the show the smaller items can really make a large impact on your net sales for an event.

I know it's over but I just wanted to share a tip.  We have an open canopy tent as well and what we use is buckets full of sand to hold down each pole (make sure to tie it off to the bucket)  There was a huge storm overnight at our last show and a lot of peoples tents got ruined in the wind but ours didn't move a muscle.  Just a suggestion for making sure your tent stays put during high winds

Tomate those earrings are hot!  What a great idea.  And i haven't seen anything like that around so maybe you cornered the market on those ones. You should try making rings with them too, or maybe a necklace if possible.

wow guys, thanks for all the responses so far.  I am going to contact the lady tonight, mostly to see what it is for (a store/or if she wants something in bulk for something else)  but i have taken it into consideration when making my prices (i will be paid for my time and the cost of supplies). but good point made about getting most of the money upfront.  I have contract outlines drawn up for my illustrations, really, the same methods could be applied here for this if anything ends up happening.  Thanks all for the replies and any one else's input is always welcome!

Hey all,

I haven't posted in a while but i had a question for you gals,  i just had a wholesale inquiry.  My question is who does wholesale and what are your minimum purchase amounts? Obviously my items will be 50% of retail price but I'm not sure what my minimum order should be.  Also, are there any other important things i should consider before contacting this lady back?   

You guys help is always appreciated!

scoulson,

i really like the site, it was weird to get used to at first (with the writing going up) but i got used to it. i especially liked how after viewing a section it took you back to the catagories without having to do any extra clicking.  My only advice is that i clicked on a link to your etsy shop from that website and it opened in the same window,  i would suggest making it so they open in a separate window so that it doesn't direct them away from your site. Other than that though its great! goodluck getting into the show

i agree with the magnetic clasp idea, if you look around you can get silverplated ones for about 20 cents a piece or less.  i think if you did that and custom size them for people (aka, exactly what there wrist size is)  then it will be tight enough fitting that the bead won't slip and fall to the bottom. 

it would also make a lovely pendant.

JMI - no worries about crediting me or anything, I just thought you should know what it was actually about since some people who might be familiar with the painting/sculptures of it would be a little surprised by your interpretation (personally i like your interpretation better though!)

Jmi - i dont know if you know this, but i just saw this pendant:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5069084 and you say its 2 men saving two women, but actually its called the "The Rape of Ganymede by Rubens"  the women are actually being stolen, not saved.


Just wanted to let ya know....
