Last week, I was busy making earrings. Most of them went to the indoor flea market. I have a friend who has a booth there, and for a small share of the rent she is letting me put some of my crafts in her booth. The first two weekends, I didn’t sell anything. I decided to try making some cheaper items this time. I made up a bunch of $4.00 earrings and dropped them off Thursday afternoon. The flea market is open Fridays and Saturdays. I haven’t heard yet whether I sold anything this weekend or not. Fingers crossed.
Here is an example of the $4.00 earrings I made for the flea market. Most of them were made from polymer clay beads like these, but they are assorted designs, not all zombies. I will be listing one pair of the zombie earrings on Etsy as well, but I probably won’t get them listed until late this afternoon.
These “Shades of Blue Sodalite Earrings” are made with sodalite chips and faux pearl beads. They are $6.00 and will also be listed on Etsy shortly. I have a similar pair at the flea market that is made with all dark stones.
I made two pairs of these “Aqua Splash Earrings,” but I have more of the beads so if they sell, I will make more. I have one pair at the flea market and kept one here to sell on Etsy. They are $6.00.
I have several pairs of the “Blue Swarovski Crystal Earrings” made up. i actually made these a few weeks ago. They were some of the first items I tried at the flea market. I left two pairs there and brought the rest home to list on Etsy. They are $12 per pair and are made with blue glass beads and clear Swarovski crystals.
While I was first setting up my display in my friend’s booth I noticed how many of the earrings were blue and remarked that you can sure tell what my favorite color is. She said I needed to make some green ones because that’s her favorite color. So here is some green. These are $4.00 earrings, made with beads I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I love clearance sales almost as much as I love garage sales and thrift shops.
I wish I had taken pictures of the displays I have set up at the indoor flea market. Ah, material for another post. I’ll have to remember to take my camera with me next time.
