I did a craft show today.
And I succeeded in selling stuff! YAY! 😀
This is way up from last year, where I barely made my table-fee back (although I suspect that had a lot to do with the show falling on the same day as the Ottawa Slut Walk).
I’m happy with the tally in part because I raised my prices this year — most of my jewelry is now $20/piece (up from $15) and my soap is now $3/bar rather than $2/bar. So it’s a fairly big mark-up, percentage-wise (though also a more accurate price-point. In the case of the jewelry, it reflects the time, materials, & overhead that go into them – and in the case of the soap, I’m no-longer under-cutting the market… woops).
I’m not sure if what I did pre-show, magically, had anything to do with my sales today, but I figure I’ll make a note of it anyway:
Sigils done in glitter-eyeliner on my wrists;
Coconut oil (fast luck, in particular with money) all over my hands in lieu of moisturizing cream;
Lit my honey-pot candles (only briefly, though — would have liked to give them each a whole tealight but there wasn’t enough time before we had to go, so).
