A small town girl's perspective on decorating, collecting, designing and living...
I'm a homebody. I love to be at home so my new job has been a big transition for me emotionally and I'm still working through it. I'm very thankful for my new position but like I said, "There's no place like home" and I have had less and less time here between work and other activities. All this had me feeling a bit down last week but it was nothing that a good garage score couldn't fix. Usually all the "good stuff" is taken on Saturdays because the garage sale pros hit the sales the first day but I was blessed enough to stumble across a gem of a sale. (pun intended) It was an estate sale advertised as a garage sale and the prices were fantastic. All the jewelry was $.50 each. Here are the treasures I found...
And a carved Butterscotch Bakelite one...
For those of you in the cheap seats I'd like ya to clap your hands to this one; the rest of you can just rattle your jewelry!
Did you find any treasures this weekend?
Up until this point, I have been spending my time on creating and designing and letting my ideas flow but have been frustrated with getting my products noticed. From reading Amy's book, I've realized that I need to take some time to strategically plan and implement a publicity plan quarterly and yearly. I highly recommend this read for all etsy shop owners, indie artists, and small business owners. You can also follow Amy on her blog, Recipe for Press, where she shares great snippets of information on trends and products to inspire you.
A big thing that gets people in trouble in the kitchen is not reading the recipe from start to finish before you cook it. Before you start anything, read through the entire recipe once.
What do you do for publicity for your business/product?
