  • Just did a party last night

    Just did a jewellery party last night at a friends house. Think there were 18 to 20 people there and I made £225 (yay) Gave my friend 10% and a pendant that she loved which was valued at £5.95 and a phone charm, does that seem ok?. Am so thrilled and excited I've hardly slept all night! Selina

        well done you! How did that work? Kind of like a body shop party or something?
        I like to make things - usually a mess!
        Please look at my stuff and let me know what you think!

          Well done chick!! Get making some more!! Parties are obviously in your favour at the minute and seeming theres no fairs around, i think this is the way to go. Iv only got 10% with no extras when iv had parties, so i think you did right. Lovely friends too!! Whens your next one booked then?

            Hi Lauralou, I just set up all my stuff and as her friends arrived and got a drink (loosens the purse strings) I chatted with them about my jewellery and explained its all hand made etc. I was in the dining room but there is a gig door between the lounge so people just wandered in and out chatting and buying which was great. A very relaxed atmosphere and as I sold stuff I restocked, also took some orders for bookmarks which I have only just started doing, so I only did 3 and they flew out the door! Selina

              Hi Maria, both me and my friend totally forgot to mention to the customers that they could book a party (DOH) so she is going to ask them when she see's them if they had a nice evening etc! So hopefully might get another one, Selina

                  Lol!! typical, the money or the wine went to your head then!!

                  If people were impressed they'll ask anyway.

                  Marketing, Marketing, Marketing! Just do a leaflet and leave it on your table, or when they buy, put the leaflet in there bag or box. If you forget then it doesnt matter! Job done!!

                      I think that's ace. I make jewellery too and am wondering whether to do a jewellery party. Seems like a really good thing to do. Nice1

                            Wow...that was good

                            I do hear people do well at home parties, and not only is it cost effective, but such good fun with a group of friends and their mates.

                            Bet you're looking forward to the next one
