Firstly, sorry for my extended absence on the blog. It's been a really busy few months as we have packed up everything and moved from London to Edinburgh! More on that in future blog posts!
Last week I delivered my silver jewellery bee range to the Things British store in Kings Cross St Pancras station, London. Things British sell handcrafted items made in the UK. They work on a rent a shelf basis, are open 7 days a week and the artist gets 100% of the sale price (excluding card fees). I previously sold my jewellery in their other shop in Greenwich, London a couple of years ago and I thought I would give this store a try to see how it goes.
Preparing the stock takes time! I decided to focus on my bestselling range which is the bee range and so I have only taken that design. I made the range in different shapes, sizes and jewellery type including cufflinks. Soldering the cufflinks and stud backs, getting and adding the chain to the necklaces, writing out the price labels - there's a lot to get done when preparing stock for sale!
I was glad to be able to go in and deliver the stock in person and set up my own display. That way, if I need to post stock down from Scotland I know the staff will just add my pieces in.
If you are in the area or are travelling from the station do pop in and have a look! There are loads of beautiful handcrafted items for sale there. Just the place to buy a unique souvenir of the UK!
