Show And Sell Party #2

It's show and sell time! Remember you can show anything handmade that you or someone else has made. Also, you do not have to sell anything to participate.




If you would like to sell your items and would like to add a direct link to your store that is fine. However, please do a quick post on your blog (if you have one) letting your readers know about the party. I would appreciate a separate link back to the party. Looking forward to seeing all of the talent!!



This is my show and sell... a colorful spring/summer arrangement in a metal container. It looks awfully good on my door! It would also look good inside too...It is for sale in my Etsy store. The flowers are so bright and pretty...



It is definitely packed full of color and would brighten up any door!





My store is looking sparse! I will be adding alot more items over the next few days!



Ok...link up!!

Thanks for hosting, Kristen! What a great door basket; very colorful and inviting on a front door.

Lynda said...

What a wonderful job you did with the door basket!! Just beautiful!!

Shelia said...

Hi Kristen! Oh, your arrangement is beautiful! I love the flowers you've chosen and you've put them together wonderfully. Do you have any trouble with the metal basket bumping your glass really hard? I tried this once and I was afraid we were going to break the glass on the door. Maybe we slam the doors too hard! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Oh Kristen - your door pocket is perfect!! You have such a way with textures and colors. I visited your store on etsy the other day. Do you ever do custom tassels?

Jan Tanis Designs said...

Your arrangement is beautiful. What a wonderful way to welcome anyone coming to your home!!

I'm loving your Show and Sell Party - both seeing what everyone is up to and also, joining in with my "pretties".

Diane said...

Best of luck with your first party Kristen. I ♥ that arrangement. I have a container like that and really need to be using it Ÿ

Kristen, I agree with the others that your door arrangement is beautiful! How do you ship something like that? I added your link info at the bottom of my post and also added you to my sidebar. Thank you for hosting this. It's a great idea and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone adds! Take care, Connie

A Hint of Home said...

You do wonderful arrangements, Kristen! I wish you much success with your sales!

Denise said...

Hi Kristen, I haven't had a chance to make a post yet, so I've just linked to my Etsy store this week. I'm working on some new items, changed the name and will hopefully be focusing on baby and friends :) Hope you can check it out.
