I would like to thank everyone at SEYS for making me and Ciarrai Studios so welcomed today. After much planning (and a fair amount of anxiety) I spent the afternoon holding the first (of what will hopefully be many) Ciarrai Studios trunk show.
It wasn’t all that big or elaborate but I think it was a good, manageable start for me.
Everything looked pretty spiffy on display and I was pleased with how I had everything laid out and organized.
I was really nervous because I had never sold anything that I had made before today and no one, other than my family and friends had ever been exposed to my work. Well, after today I can no longer say that. I made my first sale today and then a few more besides. Plus a lot of people came by to look, take my card and sign up for my mailing list so hopefully this will help drive some business when it is time for our big grand opening.
Now all I have to do is get the etsy store up and ready. It’s going to be a lot of work but after today, I am really encouraged.
