Wicked Nervous

So. Saturday is fast approaching. I have my first jewelry home party/exhibit on Saturday. I get to put my artistic vision out there to be loved and admired and purchased... or ignored.

It's a home party, you say; everybody that goes to those knows they're expected to buy something. True enough. So I was looking forward to it. It's at my sister's; she's a born saleswoman with a lot of friends.

(There's a "but" coming, can you tell?)

BUT she's now selling Bijou handbags and plans to sell those at the party as well. Poof, my sales go up in smoke. Or patent leather. Whichever.

Eh, don't mind me. I'm just wicked nervous.

And neurotic.

That too.

That's a bit of a backhand... still, it's not like you're in direct competition as far as products go. Silver goes with anything, even patent leather. Just push the "accessorize" angle - if nothing else, an empty bag looks so lonely... ;) (Will she at least let you stick a business card in those fancy handbags? Throw in a token "home sale" discount code if you can, maybe - an online sale after the fact is still a sale.)

I don't think you have to worry, you have plenty of things at a great price point. It's not like you have competition with 20 other vendors. Don't worry, try to have fun with it!
