At my day job, my colleague and beading buddy (Bev of B’s Hive) and I, hold a bead show every 3 months or so for the ladies (and more evolved gentlemen) at work. Tomorrow is the “Beadelicious Christmas Show“.
We take over one end of the outside seating area at our staff canteen and set up shop for the lunchtime period. We like to offer a variety of price points – our clientele varies from the cleaning ladies to senior executives and ages range from early 20s to early 70s! Also, people will be looking for a variety of items from little stocking fillers to more substantial Christmas gifts.
This is my bargain box – a rummage box consisting of very well priced items which can be bought individually or if you buy three, you get the third piece half price. No one can resist a rummage and a special! This was a big hit at the market I did a few weeks ago. (It is also a wonderful way to use up some of my old bead stock that does not get incorporated into my online shop pieces.)
I also offer a variety of leather bracelets and necklaces, which prove particularly popular with 20s crowd.
For the first time I will also be offering men’s bracelets – gemstone, leather and seed bead – it will be very interesting to see how that experiment goes!
Here’s looking forward to a fun festive bead show!
