Well that's over with
The craft show was today and it went OK. We didn't have a huge amount of sales but a lot of people stopped by. E thinks part of the problem is that it isn't obvious that we are using silver, precious and semi-precious stone beads, especially when there were two other booths with bead jewelry that was mainly from glass beads. A thought part of the problem is that we were using new displays and people didn't feel as inclined to look at things. At this point I'm wondering if it doesn' t have to do with the location we set up at. Of course, it could also have nothing to do with any of this. I just find it very frustrating that people don't have a problem with paying a lot of money for a piece of jewelry from a catalog or in a store but they don't seem to want to buy it directly from the craftsperson for even a fraction of the price.
