How do I know when I have enough earrings to take to a show? Well, I'll tell you how I know -- when these 2 plastic boxes are as full
as they can be. Right now, they contain about 230 pairs of earrings, but they're not quite full. I think another 20 pairs will do the trick.
The 3 display racks I use at shows can hold 96 pairs. That quantity gives the shopper plenty of variety to look at and hopefully find at least one pair that she can't live without.
This photo only shows my "carded" earrings. I have another line of more expensive earrings that I display on individual earring swans or a larger display. That display is usually at the other end of my booth space, to further differentiate between the two lines of earrings that I offer. I think I have about 40 pairs of those ready to go at any time.
Upcoming shows: Bad Girls of the North - Fairbanks Westmark Hotel - September 26 & 27
