Ever since I had my wholesale business in the 90's I have liked to include extras, do special sales and perks for my customers.
Giving gifties is something that just keeps me going. Sure, I could save all these things and sell them, sometimes I do. And it's not that I don't need the money as a business. There's always something breaking down, something we need, some new tax bill we weren't counting on.
I get through the ups and downs by giving. It's good for my customers, many who are newer and need to deepen their workshop stashes of components, or others who just need new ideas. And it draws folks to us, because they realize we're really no different than they are.
We are all just working together to find our way and do what we really love---our art, most of us being jewelry makers.
This week's giveaway is the biggest one I have ever done. There are products here from my own workshop, things that I never used and never opened. There are things here that are left over from clearance. There are things here that are extras from when I sampled new product, and some right straight from our selling stock.
Down in that pile are LAYERS of raw brass stampings straight out of current stock. The value of the stampings is a fair 125.00 and the pieces are mostly filigree and substantial, larger pieces.
There is also a full package of Carmen Miranda fruit beads, which I've been offering as long as I've been selling on the internet---that takes us back to 1997.
Also some polymer clay and the 7 Gypsies "Paris" tissue paper.....a package of that stuff will take you FAR down the road if you are doing tissue decoupage on brass. I'm noticing the company seems to be slowly discontinuing the styles they had....this is the last one I stock. I love the dark, aged sepia tones of the design.
This double opening 100 year old empty pocket watch case is a personal treasure that I am sacrificing with this Muse....I have had it so long and never used it. I'd love to see what someone might do with it.
