I just had to share with you all these lovely fabrics that have arrived in the last couple of days.
So far I cant bring myself to cut them because they are so beautiful but that is going to have to change. With any hope I will have some good sun tomorrow so I can take photos of some more headbands. I will also be working on a new product the end of this week, so all going well I will have it in the shop by the end of the weekend.
OK so I will admit it, I really dont like op shops. Lots of my clothes as a child came from them but I haven't ventured into them since.
Today while out I mentioned to my Gran could she keep an eye out for any great looking fabric if she ever goes in an op shop. Well later on while I was in the post office she popped into the local ADRA shop and spotted something but Gran being Gran didn't know if it was right. I went back and had a look and its fantastic. And for only $3.00.
I will now not be walking past my local op shop. I hope I can come across more great finds like this.
As part of my shop makeover I wanted to have new business cards made. So almost 2 weeks ago I ordered them from Moo and today they arrived.
I am so happy with them, they were also design by Pauline from Skies.
Ok so here is my tip for other sellers out there.
I like to give 2 business cards out with every order (1 to keep and 1 to give away). When I first started I ordered normal sized business cards. When ordering with Moo they work out at approximately (because of the changing exchange rate) 49c AUD each. So when I was handing out 2 with every order I was handing out almost a $1.00 AUD.
This time I did some more research and and worked out that a Moo mini card is only approximately (because of the changing exchange rate) 22c AUD, so when I am handing out 2 with my orders I am only handing out 44c AUD. This works out much better and the customer is still getting all the important information and I think that because they are a little different from a normal business card they might just get more than a passing glance.
I hope that this information helps some of you out there.
With my first sale this year, I realised that I am down to only 2 headbands. Oh no, dont know how that happened. So I am making some more with some new and wonderful designs.
I have also been trying to get myself back into drawing and painting. At the moment I have been working on this little guy, he still needs some colour but this will have to wait until the weekend when I can paint for the whole day. I really love working with inks so I cant wait.
When this little guy is finished he is going to look really cute on notebooks.
I'm going out on Thursday to gather more supplies, so I plan on having a very inspired weekend.
