I did a big girl thing!
Hey yall. Hope you're having a great weekend so far. I wanted to tell yall what I did yesterday. I went into a store with one of my fleur-de-lis etched wine glasses and asked if I could leave some there on consignment. The ladies said the owner would have to make that decision and she was gone to market, but they loved my glass. They asked me to leave my card so they could contact me. They sell some large glass pieces (vases, etc) and several customers have asked about having them etched. Then they told me to go to this other little shop down the road--they might take them. I had only stopped in this store because I had to go to the shipping store next door, but I figured if I didn't I would regret. I went on to the second store. After agreeing on a price, the owner told me to bring some by. If they sold, they would give me the money. If they didn't, I could come back and pick up the glasses. So today I brought 8 wine glasses up there. I think my negotiating skills could use some help, but it was a great first step. I know those of you who know me (Andrea) are thinking you must have stumbled on someone else's blog, because I would never get up the nerve to do something so brave (for me). Now I just hope they sell. Jason asked me where I want to go with this and I really don't know. I just love making all this stuff and being able to do things for people that no one else can do. That being said, I'm also taking a lot of time away from my family to play. I told Jason that maybe I would pick one night a week to be my crafty night. We'll see how it goes. Yall have a great afternoon. I'm gonna get on with my Saturday now. I'll be back in a little bit to post the cute card my Big Sis sent me!
