As I try to branch out and sell my wares in places other than Etsy (which if you sell jewelry there, you know how it can be a pointless endeavor) I've found a few venues I rather like in the Chicagoland area. My first consignment operation was with the very unique, artisan based shop Blue Eyed Jack in LaGrange, IL. It's been a place I could sell my jewelry when Etsy has proven to be impossible...and lame. Its a great shop to check out...they even sell vintage if that's what you fancy. And for my dolls, I've found that Local Goods Chicago is a nice fit so far AND I get to teach there too! If you're free November 30th and want to learn how to make bird nest pendants, by all means join us!
One more announcement: I'll be taking part of the Third Thursdays held by Beehive Chicago THIS Thursday so come out for vintage goods of all kinds with a bit of handmade thrown in. Maybe even get a bit of Holiday shopping done. Be there or be square ;)
