This quick-to-make jewelry item just might help pay your booth fees or at least your bar tab!
Pick up one or two of our Sports Charm Assortments and make simple necklace with a single sports charm and a bead on a square jump ring. Put the jump ring on a yard of waxed linen, colored leather or thin cording. Cost to you: around $1.50 and four minutes of your time. You can sell these for $5-7 (depending on the cord and the bead...)
The pewter sports charms are made in the U.S.A. of lead-free pewter and the square jump rings are made in the U.S.A. of brass wire. Brass is a nickle-free alloy of copper and zinc and patinas naturally to a warm golden sheen.
Other items that I have heard folks say 'pay their booth fees' at summer shows:
- Wire-wrapped bead rings made from non-tarnish, silver-plated wire and mis-matched beads in a variety of sizes.
- Beaded pony-tail holders with wired-on filigree or metal stampings.
- Simple earrings made with a single bead on a headpin...these will use up 'extra' beads and are a great add-on to a sale
- Beaded key chains or badge lanyards
- Cufflinks made with buttons or resined images (great for Father's Day!
Do you have any other great money makers for summer shows? Ahhh, of course you do. If you are smart, you won't share them here...
