 I am getting ready for a show that is coming up so fast I can hardly believe it!  The show is on the long weekend in May, which is the 19th - 21st this year.  My stock is down and I have to get cracking on making focals for pendants and small beads for earrings.  I find those two items seem to sell the best for me.

What kind of items do you find sell the best for you at shows?

I don't do markets Jane, but my tree beads sell like hotcakes on Etsy. I'm struggling to meet demand! It is fantastic and once again thank you for sharing your tutorial. I have found away to make the trees mine, by using New Zealand landscapes and NZ native trees :)

Gorgeous beads as usual Jane! I have 2 shows coming up as well, and working to replenish stock, so I know how you feel. said...

I find pendants sell the best for me, although I have decided this year to add bracelets back into the mix, but a lower end cost point than in the past. That said, I also have some higher end pieces now too which I haven't had for a while.
