I am thinking of adding some sales team members to my company to help spread the brand out to different parts of the state or other states next year. With it being just me I can only do so many shows. I am just a little unsure of how well that would go . Basicly thinking that I would just be their supplier to get a better price for everyone, ( the more I order the better price I can get )and help...them to start selling and would only want 1 person in any area so that there would not be tons of competion, and they could just use my web site for there customers, I would provide email , and credit card processing help but they would collect on all their sales just pay the cost of there supplies they sale .Basically help them start their on business with our company. No recuting, just selling at home parties and vendor events in other areas. I have seen a few people out selling at events but no one that has our quality at this price, usually cheaper, silver plated items ,like we sell for $1 to $2 . It would require a little startup cost for invetory unless you just want to take orders but cash and carry does better. Any thoughts. If you love charming and would like to start your own home business and are willing to do the work to get started and help us spread the brand and make some money too message me . I would only add a select few and no more that 1 in a given area, and would only be able to train one or two at first. If you would like more information message me at [email protected], or here on the page.

Well it is that time of year again and the Christmas shopping shows have started up . We have several events over the nexted couple of months 7 dates in October alone. Lots of new stock coming in just for the holidays in the next week or so. Also to make shopping for that special person a little easier we have added a lay-away option to our store, You can put you items on lay-away and take up to 3 months to pay them off and have them shipped. It also works great if you have been wanting something for yourself and just hated to spend the money , now you can pay for it a little at the time.
This year get out and support your local small business community, It helps all the local shops and business in your area and you can find some realy great and uniqe items not sold in big retail chain store. I have found several local crafters in my area that I plan to support, I love country girl hand made soaps and lotions, also lots of wreath makers, and wooden crafters an direct sales reps with great items. I have one friend that specialzes in photo art items, I had her make some lighted glass blocks with photos of the church my husbands family helped found,.We used pictures of the old original building and the newer building that was being torn down due to some issue with the building that were to costly to repair and a bigger building is now going up to replace it. Now we will have a 3 piece set after the last one is done, What a great way to display a memory! You can't find something like that at a department store. So get out and find those local uniqe crafters and show some support ! You will be glad you did.
Have a great week everyone!

It has been awhile since I have taken time to post, we have been busy with event the last couple of weeks. We have done one at a church that went very well. I saw lots of old friend and meet some new ones from my business group. This weekend we did an event at a local school that went great! We got to see allot of new customers and some old ones. I really enjoyed all the fun and seeing the kids out on the treasure hunt. We have another event coming up in two weeks in Erwin and that should be a great day too! We are getting in lots of new stuff daily for Easter and mother’s day. Great charms. to celebrate both. Be on the lookout for the new I love mom charm and Easter bunny and eggs.Don't forget we are booking home parties for Mom and princess birthday parties for your little princess or teen princess and their friends. A home party is a great way to get Mother's day gifts for yourself or your mom.

I can't belive how busy we are getting! More events booking every day and now we are thinking about setting up a booth in the new flea market mall opening in May. That will let us have a store location that will be open every weekend for our local customer to shop .Now I have to figure out how to be two places at one time. Lucky for me I have a great helper with the K part of our company. My daughter Kelsey has been helping me out from the start and know's all the in's and outs of our company and what we have in stock or can get. Hopefuly I can talk my niece into helping us out some at the new location . ( since Kelsey can't drive yet and she needs a job,) Two people at events are always a big help.Now I am looking for a few more display items to split up the inventory and make it possible to do two places at one time.All this will be great for our customer, the more we sale the more inventory we need to order and the cheeper we can get it and pass on the savings to you! I have learned alot about wholesale buying this year. 1st the more you buy of each charm the cheeper the price per piece, so the more we sale of a piece the better, when we re-order a larger order it saves us and you. That is how we keep our prices low, We don't need to mark up things 3 to 5 times our cost to make a profit we make it up in quanity of sales giving you great charms at a great price!

Starting to book more events , booking events at least 2 a month for the nexted 3 months and thinking about adding 1 more to April but it is a 2 day event so I am not sure about it yet , (I need a break sometime), I am also looking at one for June already. Seem like thing are picking up the pace again so soon after the holidays , but Easter and Mother's day are closer than you think!. Still looking to book more home parties in the next few months and don't forget those birthday parties come too! Hope everyone has a blessed week !
