    Default thanks and please pass it on

    Yes - she makes all by hand -
    well she doesn't blow the glass but she takes all the various parts and puts them together - she's very handy with crafts and is hoping to leave bartending behind if this business works out for her - I will check about the penguins for you Holli!
    if I were better at picture taking I'd show you the pieces she's given me -
    she has gotten some critical store placements and is trying to find time to do craft shows - hard to get a new business off the ground when working already!
    she works ALL the time! and has been raising two boys - most of the time alone! thanks for taking time to check it out! hope you'll tell friends - internet is awesome - so please pass the link on if you will

    Very nice! I used to perform at Ren Fairs and have seen similar work. Your daughters is nicer than most and her prices are really low. Has she compared her prices to others? I'm thinking she could charge more and still sell oodles. Good luck!!!

    thanks for checking things out -
    I don't think she has really compared her things to anything like it anywhere else - just looked at how much she has in each piece and putting a bit of profit margin on top - I'll let her know what you suggest -
    so far she has only had time to do a few craft shows -
    I am sure if someone would take her wares to ren fests they would do well and sell for even more than she has - but we don't have a connection for that yet - maybe one day
    she was hoping things on the internet would take off - but it goes very slow
    there will be a major craft show up near Louisville soon and she is getting ready for that - I may talk her into showing at the KY ren faire next year - I think it would be a good venue!
    wow - performing at a ren faire would be so awesome!
    I have been attending for near 2 decades and love them!
    She's working on finding penguins Holli! I'll let you know when she gets some!

    Have her look into whether or not the Ky faire already has a glassworker. Also check the cost of the booth. They can be pricey! If I remember the names of anyone to compare prices to I'll let you know. Perhaps there is a weekend market she can start setting up in closer to home? A craft or jewelry store that would carry her? If she can make those figurines she can probably make beads as well. Handmade beads sell very well and many designers incorporate them into their necklaces. Good luck to her!

    thanks for any pointers you can give - I will pass all advice on to her! -
    the Kentucky Faire has closed for the year - ended last weekend
    she has gotten some pieces in some local shops -
    hard for her to set up most wekends as she bartends most weekends and has to do that to keep the wolves from the door
    I do hope it turns around soon - she isn't losing money - that's all good - but still not making nearly enough to quit the day job
    I'm sure that's the hazard of any new business
    appreciate all you input!
