OK.... here's a run down of how the jewerly showings went.
This same friend came back on Friday, this time with her mother-in-law in tow. She again was going to bring a work colleague as well but this time their daughter got sick so home she went. This time out between the two of them they bought $70 worth of jewelry. I think the MIL is going to be a repeat customer.
So, after two showings and poor, though delightful attendance I made $145. Not bad.
The next plan is to take my jewelry to my friend's work place and set it up in the break room. I'm planning to do this next week on Wednesday (that would be May 26th) which would be my first official day of summer break. Between now and then, I am planning to create some new pieces in styles that my friend has tipped me off are of interest to her work colleagues. We'll see how it goes from there.
Planning two more jewelry showing in June as well, though spacing them farther apart will be in order.
