    Couldn't agree more. I've sent a link to my friend and will read again myself later on today.

    Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

      Dixie is very good and says it like it is and she is very seldom wrong with what she writes, just a different way of looking at things such as sale or should I say no sale post: http://handmadelives.wordpress.com/2...her-disasters/ plus the right customers: http://handmadelives.wordpress.com/2...tomer-segment/

        I liked the post - I didn't agree with all the points though. Some I thought were absolutely fine if you got a 'no', and nothing needs to change! I make a living from what I sell, and definitly didn't get all 'yesses'!

          Like you I also earn a living from my making and not all the points are valid but would be a strange world if it were, from personal experience I have followed some of dixie's ideas and it has worked very well

            Yes I did like her advice about tiered pricing - I have two tiers for my bookshelf necklaces but have been tentative about adding a higher tier for my more complicated necklaces. This might have motivated me to do it though...

              I read some years ago on a US blog that you should have a 'show piece' this item very rarely gets sold but showcases your full talent, an item that is ott, priced very highly just in case someone asks but acts as an attraction to your shop for the day. Smaller items mirroring some of the techniques used but perhaps more affordable which makes what you do memorable.

                Caroleecrafts A show piece is a really good idea its like going to a party the Queen is at, it just ups the tone and makes everything else seem a bit more glamorous. I have never heard that bit of advice but I think its bang on and I am stealing it, thank you
