So, went to the ADPi house tonight in an attempt to sell my jewelry. I thought, hey, this should be perfect…college girls with excess money, all preppy and cute and looking for some cheap goods. Boy was I disappointed.
So, I got there, with this enormous amount of stuff that I made and listened to them sing and chant in the other room while I tried to lay it out. I was getting flushed and nervous, cause I only had a few minutes to get it all together since I arrived late cause I couldn’t find the place. I finally got the stuff out and arranged in an okay fashion, not what I would have liked, but it worked. Then about 5 girls came in and looked at the stuff and about 5 girls bought something. I would usually think 5 out of 5 ain’t so bad – but when I saw in the meeting room there were about 50 girls in there during the meeting. Erin, the girl who was in charge of the event said that there were a lot of upset girls after the meeting who just left right away. It just bums me out cause I worked so hard on all the stuff and tried to market to people who would actually buy the stuff and no one showed up. I made about as much as I put into it. Whoo. I am just tired cause I worked so hard and try to really make stuff they would like and it feels like it was for nothing. Yeah, I guess I get my name out there, but it is really discouraging.
So, I am going to have to have another show, go door to door, sell the stuff at work, or something. I gotta get rid of the stuff.
And one girl said, “Yeah, people don’t wear much silver anymore.” I would have to say this is still a 50/50 split. Some people still dig silver, but she kinda rubbed me the wrong way.
Gotta put some groceries away. Lazy me blogs before I put them away and considering I read magazines after I shopped, the food could be going bad by now.
