New Earrings!

Last week, I took some time to sort out some of the buttons I have for earring making. I work best when I do things in batches. Sort all the earrings, pair all the earrings, add all the posts, add all the backs etc etc.
This is about 25 pairs that I did today. On the other half of my work surface is another 30 or so pairs. The only reason I didn't finish these is because the smell of the adhesive was making my nose itch. I plan on finishing up the buttons I have sorted tomorrow.
I have three places I will be stocking earrings. The first is Trinkets and Treasures. I want to make sure I have a good variety there. The second is the Etsy shop. The earrings have been getting a lot of traffic lately, and I want to get some more pairs up there for the people doing their holiday shopping. The last place I will have earrings ready for is my two upcoming craft shows.
I am trying to keep my craft show and my Etsy stock as separate as possible. I am so afraid that I will sell a one of a kind pair of earrings in two places at the same time.
What are all of you up to these days?

  1. I almost always making button earrings in batches, too. It is so much easier that way! I sell most of my post earrings at shows only, and they've always done pretty well. Happy sales!
