I mentioned a few days ago that I had purchased a wrought-iron photo holder to use as a display in my office. Well...I FINALLY got around to getting the thing put together and now have it in it's new home. Here it is:
Here's hopin' it actually wrangles some sales. I was looking at my Etsy site today, and some of my listings have magically disappeared. They aren't in my expired listings, they are just *POOF* gone. Hmm...I'm not 100% sure what happened, and I'm unsure whether I want to pay for the re-listing fees, since I didn't delete them, they weren't purchased, and they didn't expire. Maybe it's time for me to list with ArtFire permanently. I'll let you guys know what I decide. :)
UPDATE 5 pm, same day: I just sold $60 worth of jewelry from my display!!! I had a customer come in who loved my work---she bought practically all of the earrings on the display, plus some I had in my storage box!!! She also asked me to hold 2 earring/bracelet sets for her, create matching necklaces, and she's going to come back for those later!!! AND, as if it couldn't get any better, she wants to throw me a jewelry party, invite all her friends over, and let them look at my stuff, too!!!??!? I'M SO HAPPY!!!!!!! And I'm feeling validated---I haven't been selling well online at ALL, but this makes me feel like a real jewelry designer for the first time since I started 6 months ago!! YAY!!!
