It used to be that I didn't have much stock in earrings, and if people wanted them I custom made them on the spot, but that's changed over the last couple of years. Now I have a huge stock, except I don't really sell them that much at events. I realized that might be because my display pieces don't really allow me to price them, and it's more likely that people will just pass them buy if they have to ask for a price.
When I was cleaning up a bit in the basement last night, I found the remnants of the box of parchment paper on which I'd printed my college graduation announcements (in 1996. Go packrat me!) So this evening, I cut up the remaining sheets into 2" by 4" strips, and used them to card my earrings.
I used a black finepoint sharpie to write my business name on the cards, and penciled in the price so I can reuse them.
We'll see if it improves my earring sales this weekend, when I'll be vending here:
I'll be vending and presenting a panel on Steampunk Thriftstore Costuming on Saturday at Steampunk University, and afterwards there'll be the Steampunk Film Festival, featuring 2 old classic steamy movies, plus shorts from the League of Steam, and adult beverages will be served!
I'll be donating 10% of my sales from Saturday to the MOHAI clock restoration.
