Handing out your Business Cards at Craft Shows


I sell at two craft show each weekend throughout the Summer. I hand out hundreds of my business cards for my online Etsy shop Gypsy Moon Designs This Saturday I sold this Charoite necklace set which is a bit pricey to a women who lives in Michigan. She vacations each Summer in Montana and had my card from last year. She told me that she had been eying this necklace online and couldn't wait to see it in person. It thrilled me to hear that!

Saturday I had another customer who bought several pieces and I offered her my card. She told me my shop is book marked in her favorites. Another thrilling thing to hear!

Now, for some synchronicity...A few weeks ago I sold this Charoite necklace set to a woman also from Michigan. I am a born and raised Michigander and found it so interesting that this stone necklace set keeps selling to my fellow Michiganders.

what an encouraging post! Congratulations on your sale of the Chariot necklace! The fact that she kept your card and looked you up the following year is AMAZING!

Wonder if there is something in the genes that attracts this Michiganers to this stone. Something ancestral?
