12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Things not selling! Help please? on: August 12, 2011 11:35:23 AM
I make chainmaille Jewelry, and have been exhibiting at a show for a few weeks now. I'm not the only jewelry vendor (duh,) but nobody else does anything similar to what I do. It's been 3 weeks, and other than a few little pairs of earrings, my stuff isn't selling and I don't know why!

I'm charging $5 for small earrings, $10 for large, $13-15 for bracelets, and $15-$30 for necklaces. Are my prices too high? Or maybe something's wrong with the stuff? Or perhaps it's just the crowd that wants more traditional jewelry? (The fair is in a nice section of Long Island, NY.)

Any advice from seasoned sellers?
13  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Arts in the Plaza: Long Beach, NY on: August 05, 2011 07:13:35 AM
Hey all!

There's this awesome little art/craft fair/exhibit that goes on every Sunday, from May-October, at Kennedy Plaza in Long Beach, NY.

A few things that make it awesome:
- It's a $65 FLAT fee to exhibit for as many Sundays as you can from May-October (well, now until October)
- It's on the way to the beach, so there's decent foot traffic

I've been there for a few weeks, and it's a super nice place to exhibit! The people are fantastic, the prices are reasonable, and it happens EVERY Sunday (weather permitting.)

PM me or post for more info on visiting/exhibiting.

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chainmaille Ring on: July 22, 2011 05:24:11 AM
I had some leftover jumprings that I had no good use for, and figured that a nice European 8-1 ring would be pretty. So I made one:

After much sizing effort, it fits my finger! W00t!

I like to dance, and dance barefoot at that. So I whipped up a few fancy dancing anklets to make it a little more exciting!

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Chainmaille Bikini Top on: February 24, 2011 07:32:05 PM
Been working on this one since last summer. It fits me better than the mannequin, so the fit looks a little odd.

and a view from the back:

the black sections are rubber rings, to give the band a little stretch.

C&C Welcome!
20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Sharpies on Hard Plastic? on: December 18, 2010 06:20:14 PM
Is there a marker of some sort that will stay on hard plastic and not rub off?

Or maybe some sort of sealant that wouldn't hurt the plastic?

Previously, I've used sharpies to sign hard-hats, but it rubs off really quickly. Looking for a better way to sign the hard hats without anything rubbing off.

Ideas please?
