Things are starting to get very busy for me right now. I had intended to make a bunch of stuff to sell in late summer/early fall. A couple days ago I got an email telling me that a local event was accepting vendors who could set up for free. It’s two weeks away. I don’t have a rainsafe booth yet but another vendor offered to share his space with me.
I went over the bags I’ve been working on and realize that I’ve been making astonishing headway. That I could actually have a dozen bags to sell and also some wire jewelry. Crazy busy and working fulltime and Saturday metalsmith class too…
Ride ’em cowboy!
It’s tough to know when to stop. I want to provide a wide variety of price ranges, from $35 to $100. Obviously the more time I spend on them the more embellished and expensive they become. I think the most difficult thing I’m facing is how to price them. I want them to be affordable but I also want to value my time and skill. Decisions decisions.
The other question on my mind is what symbols would folks like to see that I’m not offering. And I must make some business cards before then too because I really want to take commissions, especially for banners and robes.
I would also like to have one new robe and a hood made. Just to show the variety of wares I am capable of.
Here are some pics of some of the pouches that are well on their way to being at least done enough, just need to put the beads on and construct the pouch itself.
