  • Jewellery Party

    Hi,

    I'm new, so sorry if I've got this in the wrong place or anything! :s

    I'm thinking of trying to start some jewellery parties to sell my handmade jewellery - I've got a few ideas, but am not totally sure how to go about it and wanted some general advice.

    Also, should I expect the host to provide refreshments? How many guests do I want, min, max (I know this depends on the venue to a degree obv)? Does the host normally get a cut of the takings or is it acceptable to just give them freebies? Is it reasonable to expect them to provide parking?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello and

    I'd check with the hostess, but I'd assume she would provide the refreshments.
    I give 10% off to the hostess. HTH

      I ask the hostess what her favourite colour is and make her a necklace as a hostess gift, she then gets 10% of sales to spend on whatever she likes. I also do a raffle with 3 prizes, a necklace, a bracelet, a pair of earrings. This is usually very good, I have in the past sold £20 worth of tickets for £3 or £4 of jewellery! She usually provides refreshments and guests bring wine etc. so they are a great way of selling.

        Sorry can't help with your question, I am sure someone will.

        But wanted to say hello and welcome anyway.

          Hi guys,

          Thanks for the help and welcomes!

          Does anyone know if I need public liability insurance to do jewellery parties? Was going to get some for events, from NMTF but they only cover markets/festivals etc, not stuff in ur home or other ppls homes - is it needed for jewellery parties?

          Thanks

            Well done Sue, some great ideas, another idea I have just thought of would be maybe offer a pair of earings (or mobile phone charm) to anyone who books a party (to be supplied on the day of the party just in case they cancel) what do you think

              Linda, that's a brilliant idea! I have just had a booking for a party in February, so will probably offer this and see if I can get any more parties.
              Thanks,
              Sue.xx
