Holiday Sale a Success


These are some of the things that sold during the past 2 weekends at Riverside's Holiday Sale in Ypsilanti. I consider the sale a success because, well, I sold stuff. Which is the whole point. Would I have liked to have sold more? Of course. Am I happy with what sold? Of course.

Now...what to do with the rest? Aside form relist in my shops...of course.

I have been enjoying the pillows and such I have been making. And the embroidered ornaments. So I know I will continue with these and add the quilts & such I planned on. But as for the bags...I need to decide which I will make more of and when. Maybe one batch of home goods, then a batch of embroidery pieces, then bags and repeat.

Someone had pointed out to me that I should be sure to point out just how few of each bag design I made as this only helps to support the one-of-a-kind aspect...and thus lends itself to higher price points without further explanation. She may be right. Where I see a mish mash, she saw a sea of unique items screaming "buy me - no one else will ever have the same one". I like that :)

I need to actually sew more to achieve this. It'll help. Need to wait for a non-snow day though :P
