Home Show

I'm toying with the idea of doing some home/open house type shows. I want to start selling some of my stuff but I don't really want to go to the work and expense of art and craft shows yet. So I think I'm going to try doing this type of thing starting sometime after the new year. That should give me enough time to figure out a few of the details and get an idea for displays. I'm going to ask my mom to host the first one with her friends because I have this problem with trying to sell to my own friends. I feel like my friends would buy stuff out of guilt rather than really liking something. I know that is probably just silly, but I think I need a little more confidence in my work before this feeling that I am somehow manipulating them will go away. Strangers won't feel bad telling me no.

Keila - Have you heard of Etsy? Go to http://Etsy.com and check out the shops. It might be another avenue for your work.

Keila, home shows is fun. If you did not make a lot of money, just enjoy the party. Your beads are really pretty.
