Thoughts and reflections
Hi; finished up the old year on a good note. The Holiday Pop up Shoppe did very well. I found that having five and 10 dollar items in addition to some bigger ticket items helped my sales greatly. Something to remember for future sales. Sometimes people just don’t have or are afraid to spend a lot of money but they want to buy something.
I did of course have ornaments at 3.00. Those sold very well. Definitely making more of those for the impulse shoppers. It seems people really want to buy local and handmade but don’t want to spend a lot of money, but are willing to spend some.
I found trying to save time by doing a once fire only works some of the time. The pieces really have to be dry, almost doesn’t cut it with explosive results. I will have to find a way to slow down the cooling process since that seemed to be part of the problem. At lower temperature the once fire wasn’t bad. So onward, more learning and more doing. Until next post!
Some of my display at the shop!
