While setting up for my first big Fall Jewelry Bar of the season I thought I’d share some pics and tips that help mine to run smoothly. After I get everything just like I want it I like to take pictures and save them to my phone so I can easily replicate the same look quickly at my next party.
The month of August is booming with announcements for fall so I printed off our August Customer Special, our new Halloween items, and our Hostess Exclusive flyer. Since my Jewelry Bar is being held in mostly my kitchen I thought I’d post these on my fridge, which happens to be right beside the checkout station I set up.
I’m expecting a rather large crowd so I’ve spread out the products throughout my kitchen. Charms, lockets, plates, dangles, and CORE are on the table, along with the display of the Fall Hostess Exclusive Jewelry Box. I set up my chains on a separate counter since people tend to take a while selecting their chains.
Since the majority of the customers attending this Jewelry Bar are returning customers I don’t spend a lot of time going over our product. However, I will spend a few minutes going over our new fall items. I’ve pulled examples of these in a tray so I can “Show and Tell” about each piece. I know several of the people attending haven’t been to a Jewelry Bar in about a year so I’m going to cover a few of my best sellers from spring as well (Charm Catcher, Crystal Window Frame). I also want to do a brief demonstration on the Over-the-Heart Chain and its versatility since many of them now have at least 1 traditional locket. It’s a great way to completely change your look. Finally, I want to share a few of my latest big sellers on social media (Georgia Bulldog Wrap Bracelet and I’ve Got This. -God Wrap Bracelet).
To keep myself organized regarding prices, etc., I’ve tabbed my new Fall Take Out Menu with small Post-Its. I’ve also totaled Locket Bases and Faces and written the amount beside each in the catalog. I like to be ready to answer price questions quickly without thumbing back and forth. Here’s an example from a fellow Designer Sarah Anderson that I simply LOVE!
And here’s my table. I love how our new Ice Grip showcases the lockets at an angle. And I love how our Hostess Exclusive is so eye-catching that it will prompt customers to inquire about hosting their own Jewelry Bar. Be sure and feature it in your display! Keep things simple, clean, and branded to O2.
