  • MY first "serious" commission of the new year

    I'm feeling quite pleased with myself cos this weekend I took my first order of this year. (I say first, hopefully that's the right word!)

    When we first moved to our new unit on the market last summer a pregnant lady was admiring my pearl and swav creations (very basic stuff) and asked if I had more. Naturally I went into my sales spiel about them all being handmade to specific requirements, colours, sizes, discounts blah blah blah. She took a card and said she'd be back after she'd had her baby as she was getting married this summer.

    Yeh right!

    But she did come back and placed an order for 4 sets of the lower grade potato pearl sets for her bridesmaids (mega profits in those as I bought a big wholesale lot and got them very cheap) and she wants the "good" pearls for her own set. All together, It comes to more than £250.

    50% deposit was paid so now 2009 looks like it might not be a bad year after all.

                      Thanks everyone. I can't stop smiling about it cos I really didn't think she would come back. Lets just say I think I'm a bit common at the side of her.

                      Anyway, that little fact obviously didn't put her off cos she dragged her mum along with her saying "this is the woman I was telling you about, that I want to make my jewellery"

                      Oh, and if anyone's interested, she had a gorgeous little chubby bundle of baby boy all wrapped up in his big pram.

                        Well done you. Nice to know that it's not all doom and gloom. For me January's been quite good too which gives me hope for the rest of the year.
                        Best wishes

                              I think it must have been that "tv appearance" that clinched the deal!!
