We made 16 or so new bearing necklaces for it, and since we were displaying all of the necklaces we needed a way to display them all.
This is what we came up with:
We made a stand out of my FIRST pair of derby skates!
When I say "we" I mean I said " I have an old pair of skates we can use" and Adam did the rest.
It is probably the best imaginable way to display skate bearing pendants.
I have never done a table or anything like this, so I don't really know what is good for sales, but we made over $300 in the four hours we were there, so I am pretty pleased. I ran a special on shirts and that went over VERY well and we sold several bearing necklaces as well. After the booth fee and supplies I would say I made about $240.
In other exciting news, we just got a wholesale order- our first- for 20.00 bearing pendants... so that is a lot of work, but the order is for other derby folks, so that is awesome.
And what kind of post would this be without a random picture of Autumn?
