So, the craft shows I did went alright. Had a fabu time, lots of laughs, tons of stories, most of which are probably inappropriate to put on a blog :)
I didn't make as much as I had hoped, but I guess doing a craft show on a "Black Friday" weekend where all the stores were having amazing deals may have put a bit of a damper on the amount of people showing up. Met amazing people though, so that's always a huge plus. I did make back the table fees, gas money, lunch money and have some monies in my pocket, but I did hope to do much more.
So, what's a girl to do? List on Etsy! I've been listing like a mad mad fiend. I hope to atleast make some good sales before Christmas so I can actually purchase a few things to give as presents. I don't think my friends and fam would appreciate me just giving them crafts I've made but didn't sell hee hee. Well, some of them would be okay with it - but I'd feel like a douche.
I'm currently running a FREE SHIPPING sale in my shop. All you gotta do is use the coupon code FREESHIP upon checkout! You know you want to... free shipping, c'mon now! Sometimes that's the most expensive part of buying online!!
Will I lose money for shipping free? Of course. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Running out of time for saving money for a downpayment! And 80% of what I'm making at my job right now goes towards groceries and gas. Now if I could just stop eating and driving I'd be laughing! hee hee (well, I probably wouldn't be laughing. I'd be pretty emaciated.)
Wanna know what I'm listing?
Lots of rings, earrings, cufflinks and such like these ones with my photographs in them.
I also had my super chickadee illustration featured!
And if you have a super duper whacked out sense of humour like yours truly, a "kock" ring. (or several. I have about 5 left!)
I actually almost ran out of Christmas cards on the Saturday and had to come home and make some more. (excuse me, my cats being a jerk face right now.... Okay, door's closed - that's better....)
And I also have necklaces with my photography as well...
I'm soon going to be listing my Canadian Animals series of cards, so keep an eye out! Alright, that's enough plugging my own work for now...
I'm slowly starting to change my shop name! I have my Facebook fan page changed (well the URL and banner, but it still says I'm "SassmowthDesigns on Etsy". Don't know if I can change that!) and as you can see, my banner up top there. And my Twitter has also changed to @LoveUPorkChops. Lots more changes to come when I figure out how to change my URL on this blog. Anyone know how to do that? I'm a little slow. (As my Dad says, I'm "Sloooovenian" ha ha. He's a comedian)
Alright must get back to listing. I also have to put a little Paypal thingy on here so I can have people purchase directly from my website as opposed to having to go through Etsy. All in due time I suppose. (Again, anyone have advice on that one?!)
Okay, off I go! Have a great night everyone!
