In just a couple of weeks, I'll be a vendor for the first time at a holiday craft fair. I'll be selling my repurposed jewelry that I love making, and usually sell on-line over at Etsy.com in my Resparkable Vintage shop.
I know it's hard to buy jewelry when you can't even touch it or try it on to see how it looks, so I'm happy to get the opportunity to put it in front of people.
But I'm also nervous. Seriously nervous.
I have a friend that also makes jewelry, so we teamed up to share a booth at a couple of craft fairs this Fall. When I filled out our applications, the show dates were far off, so it wasn't all that intimidating. But now, as the date is approaching, I'm beginning to freak out.
I'm unsure what to expect about traffic to our booth, I've never used my SQUARE app to take credit card sales, and of course, I'm nervous about the obvious: Will people like the jewelry enough to buy it?
But that's normal, right? I figure, this first event is just a "get-your-feet-wet" and "learn-from-your-mistakes" mission. We aren't performing surgery or anything that's going to take or save a life, we are just selling something that we love!
Please mark your calendar for this one!
It's one day only:
November 9, from 9am-6pm
Byron Nelson High School
2775 Bobcat Blvd.
Trophy Club, TX 76262
(cross section: 114/Trophy Club Dr OR 377/Denton Hwy & Marshall Creek Rd)
If you live out that way, or have friends that do, please send them. There are lots of different vendors selling all sorts of things, so it's a great place to find lots of unique holiday gifts. And if you're looking for some one-of-a-kind, lovingly handmade repurposed jewelry, please come to our SPARKLE booth!
