Large Craft Shows

So, I've learned a very important lesson over the last week. Large craft shows are not always money makers! KK Originals and Momma Goddess Treasures took the leap for a chance to show their jewelry skills and possibly make some money for the holiday season. Unfortunately, the promoter did not "saturate the market with advertising" as promised, so we did not have a very large attendance. The venue was huge and in a lovely place, the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, but the crowds were not available.

So, lessons learned: 1) don't believe everything a promoter tells you; 2) make the most of the opportunity--we did network and met some wonderful people; and 3) don't be discouraged.

We have gotten back into our studios and are continuing to create more one-of-a-kind items and treasures and we will continue to feel the value of making an awesome piece of jewelry for the lucky consumer that does find us.

We did take some pieces to the Art Showcase in Greeley for the Holly Days display and welcome you to contact us through the internet as well.
