I am learning its all about your research and finding your high profit margin item. Upon, doing a market for the past four weeks, where the market was oversaturated with jewelers. I have learned to find what sells...and make a BUNCH! for example, if you would like to sell 30 items you have to make 60. I have learned to balance out what I am presenting to the clients. Have a few larger, higher priced items and many smaller $$ items that people can purchase and not think about it.

~something that you can produce quickly.
For me; I have been selling the mess out of hairpins. By taking vintage fabrics, cutting them into cool shapes and hardening them. I follow that by beading them on to little bobby pins. GREAT item. very different, and super cute for todays hair styles. A winner in my book.
