Here is a picture of my table at the Revenge of the Recessionistas event at the Argentine Bean Crestview Hills , KY. The event went great! We had close to 100 attend and feedback is that everyone had a wonderful time. The restaurant was packed as ladies began arriving at 5:30 and a steady stream came in all evening. Gift bags were given to the first 60 containing coupons and skin care items. We raffled off a variety of gift certificates and gift bags with cheers going up as people heard their name announced! I sold jewelry as fast as I could! At one point people were 5 deep around my table. The down side...one bracelet grew legs, but considering how busy I was that isn't too bad. Next time I'll take some help as I know I would have sold more if someone could have just taken the money!
So today I am very tired, but would do this again in a minute. Just give me a month to recouperate and make more jewelry. I did very well and am already invited back for Sangria Fest in June. The Argentine Bean closes part of the road off and has music, dancing, food, wine and now ME! This is located in an upscale outdoor shopping center with stores like Ann Taylor, J Jill, Dillards, Black House/White Market, so the customer base is a good one for hand made and unique items. I got a lot of inquires as to what stores carried my jewelry, or where they could make purchases in the future...so I said to go to my webpage and Artfire studio. Gave out a lot of cards. I already have orders from people who were there, and got an e mail this morning for someone who wants a set she saw and didn't buy, so that goes in the mail once I get her payment!
I will be posting some more pictures of the event soon as my friends Todd Provenzano took pictures all evening.
