Consignment inventory delivered

Drove up to the spa/salon that will be carrying my jewelry. Lots of work still to be done and I don't see how T can open on Monday! She has 3 appointments booked though, so she'll have to get at least a treatment room ready. If I lived closer I could help, but she's an hour and 15 away and it's just not practical. It's all very exciting though. She gave me a treatment on the house - very nice of her. She's too trusting in a way, just skimming the consignment agreement and then sort of laughing and saying it was me and quickly signing it. She bought a set right there and then as well. Strangely enough it was exactly the same set that my fellow student bought last week. I know what I'll have to make again, for sure.

I'm nervous and excited about her new venture and my small part in it. I'm definitely going up again in a month or so to see how the place looks. It's in an older building, I'd say 80 years or so...maybe a decade less. Brick and kind of warren-ish. I think maybe the rooms were bigger, but were awkwardly divided as sometimes happens when a building changes purpose. It's not ideal, but the location is good and I think she can make it work.

In the mean time, I've been working to create new pieces for my two online shops. All these mouths to feed. I just wish that online activity would pick up. Nothing in about a month. Sort of discouraging, but I still have hopes. If it fizzles, but retail picks up, that's where I'll focus and see if I can add a couple of outlets...salons or similar. In the meantime I still have a bunch of classes to get through and then a job to find. Joy, joy, joy.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful adventure; hope it goes well for both of you. Sales seem to be slow everywhere; hope they pick up soon.
