Traveling jewelry "showings"

So, a friend of mine suggested I bring my jewelry up to her work place because it would be easier than her trying to get them to come to my jewelry showings at my place. 
A few weeks ago I did.  And it worked REALLY well.  I let them know a week or so in advance through my friend what day I would be there.  They let me set things up and I made several sales!  Then, they suggested my friend call over to one of their branches on the north side of town and see if they would like to see my things as well.  They told me to come on over.
I made about $150 in sales between the two places.  It was a good experience.  I'm wondering how to branch this out to more places but wouldn't even know how to go about it.

Add to that, I had a lady ask me to bring some piece to her shoe boutique to show.  So, I also have some pieces in a boutique here in town.  Nothing has sold yet but at least my pieces are being seen more now.

Congratulations! What an exciting adventure! You never know when an opportunity is going to present itself. You could always try making up some flyers for "office parties" and giving them to those who attend your recent one to give to friends. Best of luck!

I have some ideas in the works. I think I have a few friends who would be willing to ask their places of work about me setting up in their break rooms.... and I intend to make up some flyers about it. Not sure how it will go over but I anticipate it'll be just fine.
