I haven't blogged in some time now since I am gearing up for Brandon Day 2013. This will be my first time at this 3-day event. Normally, I would be at Arts Alive Jackson. This year, for some unforeseen reason, Arts Alive isn't going to happen.
Creating new inventory! Usually when I set up at a show, I have to shut down my Etsy store as to have items to sell at the venue. Not this year. I have been working hard to create new jewelry for the show. I sat down and figured out how much of each type of jewelry I was going to need. I would need 85 pairs of earrings, 20 necklaces for the busts, 10 for the necklace plaque, and 35 bracelets not to mention any rings and ear cuffs I decide to bring. So far, I have made 73 pairs of earrings, 11 necklaces for the busts, 4 for the plaque and 25 bracelets. I do have 5 rings made and about 10 ear cuffs. I think I am in pretty good shape. No more missing sales due to the shop being on "Vacation Mode" and trying to figure out what sold so I can deactivate the listing when the show is over.
After the Show: After this show is over, I plan to rotate out my inventory with the new items that didn't sell in the show as to have fresh items for my shop. I will do this on a regular basis so that my shop can always be new.
That's all for now. I will post pictures and give all the juicy details after the event so you can see all the fun.
