So last week I called a local women's boutique. I talked to the manager and askes if they would consider selling my bracelets in their shop. She said they would look over my fb bracelet page and get back with me. They never called me back.
Probably a good thing though. I don't have enough inventory to keep it stocked. I am trying a program to raise money. Hopefully that will pull through for me. Then if it does, I can buy more supplies and up my inventory stock.

Craigslist scares me lol. I am honestly scared to post anything on there. I have heard too many scary things about it lol. I am such a chicken too lol.
I think I am going to continue with how I am doing right now and hope that my kickstarter program pulls through for me. If it does I am going to get supplies and really up my inventory. That way I can start calling around to other places and see if I can find someone to carry them in their store.

I am so wanting to call them back lol. I am going to wait though. Depending on how my kickstarter program goes, I will be able to really up my inventory. Then I won't have to worry about running out of stock.As of right now I have 25 bracelets and can't really make too many more because I am out of chains. Can't really order any more chains right now because I don't have the money.

Just a thought.  I would def. create some samples and go in person to the stores you would like to try to sell them at. People dont really like doing business on the phone. I dont know if you are far from the stores, but if you can, just take a couple of hours from your day and walk down to the stores and ask to speak to the manager, show them your products... also if you dont have many made already you might want to keep sales online and by order.  Good luck :)

For right now I am going to continue with the online and by order. I was getting way a head of myself when I called. Soon as I can get a bigger inventory, I am going to call places and then go in person.
