  • Last nights jewellery party

    I had a jewellery party last night at my hair salon. Just put a notice in the window and some flyers on the desk. Was so nervous all day yesterday it was silly but it went really well. Got to meet Carol (Critchley, thank you for coming), from the forum and had loads of clients popping in. Before I started I said I would be happy taking £50, anything more I would be ecstatic. Well what an evening! Non stop from 6 till 9pm and I took over £400!!!!! Makes it all worth it! Need to get busy now for the next fair as my stock is severley depleted! Selina

      That's great news! Not sure my posh hairdressers would be interested in my funny felt fruit! LOL!

        Try it Goldy, what have you got to lose? I'm lucky, I own the salon, but for the outlay of a couple of bottles of soft drinks and some Lambrusco, I'm thrilled to bits, especially after the awful week I had last week!! Selina

          Well done!
          See jewellery parties are the way forward, I'd be happy having 2 a month, just sometimes hard to get people to host them

          So I might host my own again in a few weeks.

              Well done I'm glad it went well. Do you make your own jewellery to sell? I'm having trouble getting enough stock together to have a party as I haven't enough hours in the day to make it all! x

                I have been asked twice this week already if I can have some jewellery parties.....

                I am going to have one or two at the end of August then wait until october/november and have several. This is so I can make enough stuff to sell!

                  I have a couple of craft fairs booked and I will definitely have another 'doo' at the salon, probably the first week of Dec, just after everyone gets paid at the end of Nov! And yes I do make it all myself, usually sitting in front of the telly at night. Need to get busy now really instead of chatting as I have about 6 commissions from last night to get done too. Selina

                          That's great news Selina - you must be over the moon with £400 of sales

                          It's good to know people are still spending as well, what with all the doom & gloom on the news about the credit crunch etc.

                            I enjoyed popping in to meet you You had a lovely spread of jewelry. It all looked very tempting and lots of folk were comming and going. I took a friend with me (My twin Grandsons other Grandma) and she loved it. I am so pleased you did so well you deserved it as a lot of hard work went on to make such a showing.
