As you all know I have been slacking on the blogging front lately due to getting all my jewellery made for the Christmas Fairs, and me and the lovely Lisa did our first one on Friday. It wasn't as great as I'd hoped but we still made a nice little profit, whilst tucking into mince pies and cupcakes. To be honest I was kind of glad to get it out of the way because the Thursday turned out to be really stressful. I had ordered gift bags for the jewellery and display stands, neither of which arrived by Thursday. So I took a trip into town in a slight panic wondering what I was going to do. I finally found some lovely red and gold organza which I decided to buy along with some ribbon to make my own gift bags. By this point I knew it was going to be a long night with over 100 pieces of jewellery that needed gift bags. Then searching for stands to display my jewellery on turned into a nightmare, which turned in quick trip to town into a 4 hour trek around every shop I could think of! At the point of giving up I finally found the perfect thing in TK Maxx, but was a little put off by the price tag. After a long time deliberating whether or not to buy it, I decided that it was too beautiful to leave behind. Unfortunately I haven't got any proper pictures of it so I'll have to do another post on it when I can photograph it properly, because it is too beautiful to be taking pictures of it at night time in bad lighting.
Here are a few pictures of our stall...
I'm hoping that by next weekend I'll be all set up to start selling them online so keep your eyes peeled for that. I would also love to hear what you all think of my jewellery.
