So the biiiig event was this weekend.  I was a little disappointed, but as my boyfriend said, people were looking for dirt cheap deals, not hand made goods with an appropriate price.  I did manage to sell a few items, three pairs of earrings, a necklace, and some of the bobby pins.  The stuff that I still have I will be posting on Etsy eventually (as well as will be for sale on the blog until then).  Anyways, I thought I’d show a few pictures of my display and all.  So here is the over all display I had the first day (my dad set it up the next few days and I didn’t get pictures, but oh well).

Our yard sale will be held on the 4th of July weekend, so I thought I’d make something festive to sell for the weekend.  This thought didn’t occur to me when I purchased some of the supplies, but I had found these packs of 9 pairs of earrings on sale at Wal-mart for $3.  They were a good size so I figured I could do something with them.  The packs had silver, red, and black hoop earrings in a small, medium, and large sizes.  As I was riding with my boyfriend after finding the earrings it came to me that I could make red, white, and blue earrings for the 4th of July with the red earrings, brilliant idea I think and they actually turned out quiet well.  This picture is pretty bad, I’m not sure what happened and was too lazy to take it again, but I tried two different styles, one with a silver and one with a white.  The white version looked  so much better that I only made one pair with the silver.

In preparing for the yard sale, I’ve been trying to think of how to display my jewelry.  I don’t just want to through it out on a table or leave it in unattractive little ziploc bags.  So I thought that I might make my own jewelry stand.  However, as I was going to yard sales myself this past weekend I found this niffty little rack that I think will work pretty well.  It was originally gold, but my dad spray painted it with a chrome colored paint, I think it looks really good.  It looks like a coat hanger, but it’s less than a foot high.
