|My stock in the Things British shop|
I was teaching this morning, my last Mary Ward Centre class of this academic year! This afternoon I am working on stock to go into a shop.
For a few months now I have been selling some items from my totem collection of silver jewellery in Things British, a shop in Greenwich. It's a shop filled with gorgeous loveliness designed and made by independent artists in the UK. There is not only jewellery but lots of other lovely things including stationery, t shirts, ceramics, soaps and more.
It's great for me as I rent a shelf for a period of time and then any money I make is mine. I did well there in the first few months but, honestly, sales haven't been so good in the last month. However, I've had a really busy term and haven't been able to concentrate on replenishing my best sellers or on trying out new items to the range. Now that school's out that is exactly what I am planning to do in the next month! I am also hoping to capitalise on the busyness of Greenwich market during the summer holidays.
I've got some stock ready to go and I need to get on with labelling it and send that in as a first batch at the beginning of next week. Then I want to work on a few new pieces I have in mind to add into the collection including a seahorse pendant.
I'll keep you posted of progress over the coming week.
