Yeah, I know it’s been a while… well more than a while. I’ve been very remiss in this blogging thing and I promise to get better at it. It’s a new year, and I’ve been doing things just a little different in the store and online.
As usual, I am always changing the store around, this last fall, there was yet another switcheroo and one of the more popular things I have done was to place a table in front of my big window. I have been doing some of my sculpting, wire work, and soap making there for people to watch and see how I do things. As a result of doing my sculptures in the window I had a request, well actually it was more of a demand, by a lovely lady, to teach her how to do it. Sooo, I guess I’m a sculpting teacher now. I taught this lady how to sculpt a Fae, that’s the old English word for Fairy, but they aren’t your usual type of Fairy 😀 and we both had a great time!
Since then I have also been asked to teach making Fairy Gardens and Wire Wrapping. So I guess that will be on the agenda for this Spring/Summer season.
Now the other thing that, business wise, has happened is my Facebook sales. During the holiday season I add fashions to my list of wares, Capes, Ponchos, Blanket Scarves and so on. They are hugely popular sellers but since I don’t have a lot of room in the store to stock a lot of product and I sell out FAST! I’ve had comments from some of my out of town customers that they don’t get a chance to snap up the goodies they see on my page. So I’ve started a Pre-Buy Sale on Facebook.
My first sale started today and will end on Tuesday night. Just pop on over to my FB page Sherry’s on Main all the pieces are individually listed in the posts. You just Comment “Sold” the size and colour if applicable as well as your email address and a PayPal invoice will be sent to you. All the info you need is in my “How to Shop” in Notes. Any questions, just ask.
I’ve also started doing some Unboxing Live Videos on FB. What is an Unboxing video you ask? Well, let me tell ya. When I get a new shipment of product, I open the box live on FaceBook so we can both see what comes out at the same time. I may sound like a dork, the quality isn’t that great, (I do it with my tablet, and I’m all alone so…) but I really enjoy doing it.
I do have a website but I’m even worse at keeping it up to date than I am here. I do most of my business on my Facebook page so to see what I’m really up to, pop over, Like and Follow me and let’s get to know one another a little better.
