Long time no see! Come visit at an online event!

I've joined The Pink Elephant along with many other small businesses to have an online shopping event on Facebook.  You'll find all kinds of handcrafted items & the beauty is you can shop from the comfort of your own home.  Winter Slump Shopping Event Now - Feb 28 

Many of the shops are offering special discounts to their shops during this event.  This includes me! My coupon code for this event is WINTERSLUMP & this is valid through Feb 28th.
I've added a lot of new stuff since my last post including stretchy bracelets and some beautiful bright yellow beaded earrings as well.

So please stop by and browse the event.  There's always a Birthday, Anniversary or other event to shop for & it's always fun to treat yourself.

Valentine's Day and Grand Re-Opening Etsy!

I decided to price down a special section of my store this past week.  I also decided to have a last minute Valentine's Day Sale.  So, anyone reading this, if you're looking for something special for Valentine's day.  I have some beautiful Genuine Swarovski Crystal earrings and bracelets as well as other items in my shop.

The special coupon code for my shop is VALENTINE for 20% off $20 or more.  That counts on the Sale items also so then you get a double discount woo hoo!

Have fun and browse .  The discount is valid through valentine's so Ladies, if you didn't get what you wanted, you have a little time to treat yourself lol.

The Assignment of Consignment

So, I've been reading about different ways to market your (my) craft.  Consignment is apparently one of them.  There are two stores here in the near vicinity that I know of so far.  One is super high end fashion and the other is more focused on furniture.  Super high end takes about 60% of the sale but they seem to have a better idea of how to display jewelry and items of that nature.  The other place takes 45% but it sounds like I'll be able to display jewelry on my own display cards to make them stand out and look nicer than what I saw.

What a conundrum.  So, that is my personal assignment for now.  My goal is to go make appointments as soon as I'm able to drive myself and see what the deal is and if they even accept my jewelry as a fit with their styles.

I want to be able to put up business cards and market my etsy shop but also have a place for people to be able to see my jewelry in person.  Let's see how it all goes :D.
