Snobby Snicklepants

Well, this evening I took my second real step toward trying to sell my products (the first real step being when I collected business cards and stuff the other day). I worked all afternoon and evening on samples (onesies and clippies) and barely made it to the store in time to drop them all off with my pricing list and everything. Luckily the owner is staying in town for an extra day which means she'll get to look at my stuff herself instead of having someone describe it to her over the phone or send her pictures or something. Anyway, I think they'll let me know within the next few days. Eeek! :) I think I would really enjoy selling to this store. So far all the employees and the owner that I've talked to have all been super nice ladies. Think happy thoughts for me!

P.S. The title of this post was just a joke. I went with my favorite of the brand names- Sammy Jaybird (copyright). Thanks for all of your input!

Good Luck! I would love to see pictures!

Polly said...

Yeah! I agree, you should post pictures...now you'll need a website to sell them too.

I have an idea of something you can make it would be very simple but profitable too. ( I think) let me know if you want details.

I may not be posting pictures anytime soon since a lot of people steal ideas from blogs and similar websites. Also, I didn't get any pictures taken before I took the samples in. Hehe.

Polly said...

Well...you can post them on the family site...I promise I won't steal them. :)

Hooray! I'm so excited for you and if you need any help just let me know. I can cut pretty straight.
I'm excited for the farmer's market to start up again!

Me too. Me too. Me too. Even though I don't know if I'll sell things this year. But it is always more fun selling. You should think of something to sell (or help us make granola or something) and come too!

Ooh! i'm excited for you! Do you have a designer yet? A logo? A feel for the brand? Do email me and we'll talk!

by the way, we need pictures, I need onesies, and the felt clips sound perfect for my "growing out of a bad haricut head"

Good for you Katie! I've been wanting to do the same thing for a while, but I haven't gotten off the ground with it yet. Good luck!

Katie,
You are so creative and I love that you're "homespun" as you said in your previous post. Maybe you could start an etsy shop and sell your products online which would reach a broader base of people. Good luck with your endeavour!
