Hi Andrew, You know Randy has been telling me for years not to trust to many people. Be careful !! I'm like you. I'm learning to keep my guard up alittle bit more. Lessons are always an eye opener. Don't worry to much about the artists that are leaving. This to will be something for them to think about down the road. I believe strongly in Handmade Atrists. Our shop here is gonna have more sales then our Etsy shop. I've already made my mind up when we get to the point were I can know longer keep up with both shop I'm closing Etsy. Hey, by the way can you email me your address so I can send you some business cards for the festival.

lisianblue, Thank You  they are on consignment. In fact she sold one Monday hope she sold more find out tomorrow. She wants to add the birthstone bracelets so spent most of the day making gold and silver ones. The owner said she thinks the bracelets are going to be a hot item. Hope so.

i don't even think i can do anything if they steal my design. The bracelets with the rounds are different. I haven't seen any like that out there. Even the ones with the rhinestones which is the one they took.

Kimberly I just saw this. I would like in on it if you can fit one more person. The only thing is is what do I send. A baby bracelet for each bag or maybe a small toy of some kind. How many.

No, I can't do that and wouldn't if i could. The only thing I can do is send different friends in the shop to make sure they are not copying my bracelets. I think what made us so made was they did it right out from under our nose. I will tell you that they don't have very many sales. Alot of kids clothes out there. :)

Hi Everyone,

A week ago I went to several consignment shop here in town. I wanted to put our bracelets in one of the shops. The first one was in Rogers and when we got there we talk to a husband and wife, the owners. They knew we were coming so I started showing them our bracelets. We were there for about 15 mins. The first 5 mins. all he talked about was how our bracelets were cute and all but not anything to right home about. Well, that kind of upset me but, i just started showing him the premium bracelets. Then he and his wife started talking about how easy it would be to steal them becauce there so small. They spent about 10 mins. talking about it Well we left and went to a shop in Bentonville. My favorite bracelet is the Rosaline Swarovski with rhinestones. Went to pull it to the show the lady and it was gone. Now i know i had it because i had it in the shop in Rogers. Well, you got it they stole my bracelet. The most expensive one too. Randy said when he was putting them away he saw the man put his hand in is pocket out the corner of his eye. You know thats somethin for something thats cute and all but, good enough to steal. Don't figure. I was so mad  >:)

[/size][size=78%] I even called them up and told them i left a bracelet and i was on my way to pick it up. They looked while i was on the phone no bracelet. Well, lesson learned only take two items next time so i walk out with 2. On a good note the 2nd shop we went to looked at them for a few seconds and said I will take everything you have. Hope she sells them. [/size] :)

yes, I fill out a custom form and they know it's jewelry. I've had two orders so far. For first class the price stays the same through out Canada. with the custom form the customer can track the order until it leaves the U.S. I use a brown mailing env.  I buy the env. and my own bubble wrap at Walmart. It amazes me how expensive shipping is here. I bought birthstones from Ireland about 3 months ago for my bracelets. shipping cost was $2.50 and they arrived in a small box. I think the U.S. is the most expensive. Those orders i sent went from Arkansas to Miami Florida then to New York before leaving for Canada. Customs was in Maimi. what a waste of money. There is a customs place in New York. This is part of the reason the post office is so much in dept. Packages don't take a direct route. My birthstones took 3 days to get to New York ccustoms. then went south and then west before coming here. It took 3 weeks to get here. it's messed up.

Oh my god John my cost from US to Canada is $6.57. I use USPS first class with tracking but my little bracelet doesn't weight much.

That shipping cost always comes up. All you have to do is change it to whatever you want to charge. I  usually go to the post office and give them a city I want to mail to and they tell me how much it cost to ship there.

Alright Vintage_Gypsy Just so everyone knows when i called to register they told me I would only get maybe 2 views a week. The stats break it down. It shows Centerton as 119 views this week so the rest of them come for other areas within the US. It's not that hard for people across the nation to find us. Hopefully we can all connect give each other recommenations and pick likes. This way we will be on each others company page increasing all are chances for a sale.

My best friend still works for Disney. in fact she only has a few more years until fully invested. She works in Reservations it's really good pay.  They did cut everyones overtime and made alot of changes which did effect her. She works 2 jobs now and been working both jobs for some time, and yes she is in love with the place. It all about Disney. What do you think I should do tell the OR superviser so at least the hospital will know or should i mind my own peas and q's. what would ya all do.

Randy he doesn't like Disney because he was born and raised in Kissimmee. All I heard about for years is how Disney took all that beautiful land. land where as a kid he would fish on. It as all dirt roads back them until Disney. Maybe should tell them. I don't know maybe it would be better to mind my on bees wax. Randy thinks i should. I worked in the operating room for 14 years in Orlando. My career ended over night do to a ankle injury. I loved it cried for weeks after my Dr. said I couldn't do any stand up job. I'm torn because I fill a need to protect the operating room staff from this nonsence. They are so some of the nicest people i've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Even my Dr. meet him in the emergency room over the phone. I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable he made me. Anyway I'm gonna have to think about this.
