Are you Selling Jewelry?

haha you would think I wouldn't want to help my fellow jewelry designers, but hey thats what I do.

If you are selling jewelry you will want to keep things like this next template in mind. I have found it much easier to carry a standard metal and type of ear hook, then offer changes for free or for a small charge. I have found you get to help out many different types of customers, and you don't hear well if only that was in gold. Here is a simple template that you might want to keep in mind when selling earrings. However, if your designs are extravagant and it would take you a very long time to make these changes you may not want to do something like this. But, you can always think about just switching out just the ear hook as well.

Here is a template for Earring Changes:

Electronic Sales Tracking Sheet

Here is a tracking sheet that I created to keep track of all of you sales during your craft show. All you have to do is type in the items as you sell them and it will keep an updated tally for you. So at any point in the day you can see how much money you have.

ps. I will be posting a printable tracking sheet in a few moments for anyone who won't have a laptop at the fair with them :).

Are you New to Craft Shows?

I figured I should probably put up some useful information on my blog :). I have done many craft shows and have learned lots of things along the way. So I decided to post a Free Promo Pack for all craft show vendors. This pack will be updated as I think of more stuff to add. I already finished a few things, so I figured I should go ahead and upload them for anyone who needs them.

I will upload them in as their own post. Enjoy! Thanks.

Free Documents - Price List

The first document is a new thing I am trying out at farmers market. I have long found out that printing off prices and attaching them directly to my earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that once you stick them on there they are SUPER hard to remove. So now I'm trying a new idea. I have created a few price sheets. The price sheets have my list of prices with a corresponding sticker that tells you what price an item is. I am using colorful stars. I think they are alot of fun for me and the customer. Plus, if they buy my crafts as a gift they can leave the star on there and the receiver will have no idea how much the item costs. Here is the download for the price sheet. You can download the word version (editable), or the pdf version (non editable). I will also attach pictures of my final product. But, the first step is to download the sheet, type in your prices, and print!

You can download this in word or as a pdf:

The second step is to pick out some crazy cool scrapbooking paper.

The third step is to use glue, or tape to attach your printed out list to your scrapbooking paper, stick on your stickers, and then laminate. You can take it to an office supply store, or just buy the self-laminating papers (that is what I did). It was super easy. Here is a picture of my finished product.

Don't forget to attach the stickers to your product!!!
