  • Stuff in a gallery!

    I finally took some mirrors & suncatchers along to a local gallery - I've been psyching myself up to do this since Jan! They seemed to like them and have taken some for sale or return. Just had to tell someone, it's quite exciting (yes, I should get out more!). The only trouble is, I'd taken small mirrors intending to show them as samples and to return with bigger things if they liked them, but I decided to leave them there & then, so now I've none for my craft fair at the end of June, need to get busy again!

    Oh, and I've just had my first order from my website, not a direct buy (they want a different size of an existing mirror design) but still a sale!

    PS I originally put in 32 smilies apparently, but I'm only allowed 10! website ... my blog

            Well done. Takes guts to go and 'sell' your work like that.
            I am sure it will be a success for you as your work is fantastic.

            Here another smiley!!!

            Wahoo you're at 33 now!!

              Fantastic news! Well done, bet you're so chuffed! I have been thinking of doing the same - have emailed a few craft shops but never seem to get a reply from them, so the direct approach is probably the best. Can I just ask fo a bit of advice? When you say 'gallery' what type of place do you mean? As I also make mirrors, maybe the same type of place will be interested in my mosaics. or not, hey ho!!!

                  Thank you for all the smilies!

                  Katian, it's quite a small gallery and it's just in a small town, not city centre or anything like that! They were very helpful and friendly and they have lots of nice things - I saw a painting I really liked but it's £220 so I need to sell some mirrors first before I even think about it! Here's a link to their website:

                      Well done. I sell my jewellery at a couple of galleries and it's surprising how quickly the money adds up. One in particular contacts me quite often for more stuff and since Feb I've collected £38, £88 & £42. Not bad for a side-line

                        Oh well done on plucking up the courage! Hope it goes really well!!

                        I am often in shops and think I ought to ask them if they would take my stuff but I never have the nerve!!

                        Good luck!!!
