Sac-Con Recap

On Sunday I went to my very first convention as a vendor! Sac-Con was a pretty amazing and freakishly scary experience for me. Why freakishly scary though? Oh, well I dunno… maybe because a majority of the items I was selling were my handmade necklaces and earrings from my Etsy store, so I had a personal stake in it, y’know? And it’s absolutely nerve wracking having some people check out your table for a few seconds and move along to the next one, or having people ask how much one of my handmade necklaces or earrings were and be completely appalled by the price. Many of my pieces are one of a kind — I have no intention on making another one exactly like it, and I use ‘spensive genuine Swarovski crystals, thus the reason why a My Little Pony necklace is priced at $35. Despite that, quite a few people swung by my table numerous times, so that was pretty cool!

Overall I found the whole thing to be a good learning experience and a step forward with my jewelry thang. 🙂 Plus I met some pretty awesome people and got tons of compliments on my pieces, SO YAAAY!

The pieces left over from the show will be up on Once Upon a Smorgasbord sometime tomorrow or Thursday. I’ll post an update once they go up. But for now, here are some pictures of my booth and a few cosplayers Tim found! 🙂

Cheers,
Nina

      1. Of course you can rock a My Little Pony necklace! My jewelry is made for women who are still young at heart. 🙂 But a lot of kids kept checking out my jewelry which I thought was kind of funny since they’re not exactly my target audience.

    1. Thanks, Katherine! You should totally look into going to a nerdy convention, they’re so much fun!! Plus there’s always a spot where small press artist sell their things and sometimes there’s vendors who sell their handmade jewelry 😀

  1. Congratulations. I’ve been trying to get up the courage to book a booth at a market or con for to sell my wares, but as yet I haven’t been brave enough. Well done for going for it!

    1. Thank you! I was really scared about doing it, but it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. It’s so worth it in the end, I hope you’ll be able to sell your things at a con too sometime! 🙂 What kind of things do you make?

  2. Congratulations. Your stall looks fantastic. I love all your jewellery. That dinosaur necklace is the bomb.
    I hope you did well at the con, and I can’t wait to see your next market stall.

    1. Thank you!! I originally thought the dinosaur was ugly, but a vendor at a flea market gave it to me for free after I told her I turn them into necklaces. Now I love it and don’t want to see it go! D:
