UK GAMES EXPO 2019

Back home after an amazing weekend at the UK GAMES EXPO! So tired and overwhelmed by all the love I got for my jewellery, thank you all so much! Cant wait for my next stall! 

So I thought I would post some things I have learnt about having a stall at this amazing event.

First of all, make all the lists! Here is my list of things to take to a show;

  • Stock
  • Business cards
  • Table
  • Chairs
  • Table cloth
  • Glass cabinet
  • Battery powered spot lights and batteries
  • Jewellery stands- many
  • Mirror
  • Boxes to add height to table.....
  • Fake branch to add interest
  • Price labels /list
  • Card machine
  • iPad
  • Charger
  • Battery packs.....a couple just in case
  • Money tin/purse
  • Float
  • Receipt book
  • Order book... feeling hopeful ;)
  • Organza bags- for small purchases
  • Paper bags-for small purchases
  • Boxes
  • Large bags with ribbon handles
  • Hallmark notice
  • We take card sign
  • Banner
  • Pens
  • Weights for table cloth 
  • Tissues
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Some tools to work on things during down time

 Some things I think would of been good- rubber matting for at least behind stand as all the standing really hurt my feet and my shoulders weirdly. I will be looking into some kind of mounting for my iPad and card reader too.

Probably lots of other things that I am not remembering right now....

It was so great to see people looking at my jewellery and smiling, it makes me so happy to think I have made someone's day :) squee!

I also realised I really should of brought along more of my other work to show as people were interested in these too :)

Also I am now working on my next ideas for my 'PLAY' collection, some of which came from requests from people at the show, others I have been planning to do anyway;

  1. Meeple stud earrings
  2. Dice stud earrings
  3. Dice cufflinks
  4. Charms with lobster clasps
  5. Silhouette Meeples with coloured resin in
  6. Solid Meeples with stones in
  7. Gold versions 

 So now to investigate / plan next show! watch this space!
