It started with a Ladies Night charity fundraiser at our local Home Hardware store where I had a display featuring our new scarf jewelry and interchangeable earring system. I was so busy I completely forgot about taking a photo of my table set-up. I did manage, however, to take a picture of Laura in her gorgeous gown and wearing one of our scarf jewelry sets.
It was a fun evening with lots of door prizes, activities, punch, wine and lots of yummy appies!
We were up early the next morning (Sunday) for the huge Kamloops Craft-a-Fair. It was a very busy show as usual and very successful. Our new scarf jewelry and stick shawl/sweater pins were well received and we nearly sold out before it was over. (This photo was taken later on so was looking pretty slim after selling more than 2/3's of our inventory!)
The main drawing feature was the slide show we put together on a digital screen with the photos taken by Natalie of One Love Photography. (see photo below)
Our new Interchangeable earring system was also a big hit. I came up with the idea when I was experimenting with some new ear wire designs where all the art beads can be easily interchanged. I was getting weary of making so many ear wires for every pair of art beads and then having to change them when a customer would prefer a different style. With this system, you choose the style of ear wire as well as your art beads which can be easily interchanged. I am in the process of updating our website which will feature this system very soon.
