“Fest Success”

Description from Mary - Sweet Chick: These are some of the stones that were in the pieces that I sold this past weekend at the Strassenfest Arts Festival.
Pearls seemed to draw a lot of attention as almost half of what sold was made of pearls. Another set was made of LB square Amazonite (out of stock LB, we need more!) and black shell. Also a chunky necklace with the Yellow turquoise pendant, Ocean jasper and various other gemstones, a southwest style multi gemstone set and also a necklace made with Eagle Eye Jasper. A few others sold as well AND I got several custom orders!!!
All in all it went well. I was able to cover the cost of my booth and $$ to spare. I had hoped for more sales but it went way better than last year! I can't complain.
Several folks would like some wedding jewelry made so I gave them my card. Hopefully they will be new customers in the near future.
Sigh....that is me taking a big breath of relief and gearing up for the next one. October is the next Arts Festival and it lasts 2 days!!
I've only done one day shows....we shall see!!!!
