My First Market

I did my first market today at Rogers, Ohio. When I went there I knew it was a large flea market. In my opinion, my jewelry is priced on the lower side, for handmade jewelry. I’m a little disappointed because I had to lower my prices to sale anything (which I didn’t like but I wanted to at least sell something!!), and even then I had people asking for specials. I made a small profit, and when I say small….I mean SMALL. I barely covered my booth fee and if you look at the vendor info…that isn’t much. I was in the back, where there was not much traffic, and I was right next to a guy selling cheap import jewelry… But I’m still glad I went. It was a good experience in general and it is something to learn from. It was a good way to “get my feet wet” so to speak. Next time I sell in person, I will do a real craft show where people understand that $4 for a pair of handmade earrings isn’t crazy… By the way- $4 was after I lowered my prices. I’m not going to let this discourage me too much. I am going to keep plugging away at Project Wonderland. I haven’t given up hope yet :)
