1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / WoW That's a lot of resin! Packaging Ideas. on: March 04, 2014 06:00:28 AM

I am getting ready for an upcoming show. I needed to put ALL of my products on their new packaging. What I thought would only take me an hour took me pretty much 8 hours, not counting the 1hour trip out to walmart for more supplies. And I'm still not finished! I need to cut out more cards with my cricut. So my guess is I have at least another 8 hours of packaging ahead of me. While I was working my mom came to see if I wanted help and said "Wow! That's a lot of resin!" she has no idea! LOL

My pile went from this

to These

Front of the necklace cards look like this

inside has the chain
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Doing my first in person sale on: February 07, 2014 07:17:11 AM
A group of my friends are in a metal band, and and invited me to sell my resin pieces at their table at an upcoming festival. So this will be the first time I'll be selling in person. I know this will be a little different because its a music festival and not a full blown craft fair. My dad and I will be working on a table top rotating display for my since I don't know exactly how much table space I will have.

I have business cards, and I'm thinking about creating a form for custom orders or for bands that want to order promo pieces. I have created some items for my friends band as a thank you gift for letting me sell at their table and for supporting me!

Should I also create like a tri fold brochure? My husband will be sitting with me so I will have him handle the money so I can concentrate on sales and answering questions.

Any and all advice is welcome!!!

I came across this site via a business card I receive.


I read over the section for opening a store, but I am not sure, I would like some first hand experience if possible.

Thanks everyone!
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Shipping Cost Advice! on: December 10, 2012 01:09:20 PM
HELP! I have been selling on etsy for years now, I switched sometime back from ebay. Ever since then I always seem to have issues getting shipping costs down. Most items I currently sell are $10 and under, I was selling ferret bedding sets, and shipping was much easier for me to figure out.

Anywho I feel like I am either over charging or undercharging and I'm losing money. Currently I only ship to the US and Canada. Is there a magic formula? a hidden secret? HELP!

I prefer to use the post office since it is the easiest for me, since they will pick up right from my doorstep and if needed it is right down the road for me.

Shipping is probably the only thing I miss about ebay since I could just put in the weight and select the options and then it would calculate based on the buyers shipping zip code.

Two of my nieces are getting American Girl dolls for christmas, well actually they will be getting them before christmas. So their moms, my friends have put me in charge of making handmade items for the girls for gifts. The girls love anything and everything I make for them, of course they are 4 and 5!

I have 2 American Girl Dolls so at least I can get the sizing down pat.

I have been trying to figure out what to make and I am coming up with a short list!

so far I will be making a bag for the dolls to match the back packs I made the girls last year
Matching Scoodies for the girls and dolls
doll sized quilts

and thats all I came up with!!! I'm running on empty, since I have been going crazy making things for a craft fair.

I was a busy little bee yesterday! I was very happy to have finally gotten a full 8 hours of sleep!!! Granted it was mostly because of the help of beer but still 8 hours!!!!

I had the creative bug bite my butt, so I pulled out my jewelry making stash, and tada!!!!!

Lots of rings and hair clips. I'm so making more today!!
