The holiday season is about to kick in for me, so the other day I pulled out my angels for a thorough count.
I also checked last yearâ€™s sales to see what colors sold.
There is no science to prior sales as a predictor, but it always helps to know what colors customers gravitate toward.
So now I am off to the studio to replenish the most popular designs, as well as create new angels that pop into my head.
I have so many accessories for them, and I love watching them get matched to their new owners. This original angel is not going anywhere, though.
I have plenty of frosties due to the limited snow last year, and will probably come up with some more ornament designs.
I have 3 shows coming up in November. The Wilder Mansionâ€™s 7th Annual Holiday Market takes place November 3 & 4 in Elmhurst. Handmade Chicago returns to the Empty Bottle November 11.
The Jewelry & Gift Show by Amdur Productions takes place November 17 â€“ 19 at the Highland Park Art Center.
Of course I will also distribute ornaments in various consignment locations, so stay tuned for where you can find them in a brick & mortar venue.
