Awesome!

Thanks to all for the feedback you have given about my beaded stitch markers. Specifically I'd like to thank Allena, Lu, Jenn, Charleen, and Laura. To answer Jenn's question... the white and colored swirly bead were found at Meijer, an upper midwest version of Wal~Mart. Though to be fair, I think Meijer came first. Anyhoo, I will post the name of the maker when I can remember who it is, in other words, next time I buy some I will let you know who makes them.

Today we ventured out in this unseasonably warm weather to visit a LYS that has recently relocated. While I was there I happened to ask if they wanted to see the beaded stitch markers I had made. They said yes and proceeded to ooh and aah over them. One of the owners asked what I was selling them for. I had no clue. I hadn't really thought it would be so easy. I knew the other LYS in town would be interested since the owner is a friend but I hadn't decided on a price as of yet. They were definetly interested and asked that I come back with a price and they would carry them in the store. Cool, and I wasn't even trying.

When I went to Lizzie Ann's Wool Co. she was almost as excited as I was, maybe more so. I sold 66 stitch markers to her and she gave me some ideas for other markers as well as some other beaded products that she thought people might be interested in. I was so happy with my sale that I immediately went to the craft store to buy more beads. I spent tonight in front of the TV setting up 60 more markers. Who knows where this might lead. I just thank God for giving me this gift of creativity. He's so awesome!

How cool. I am waiting for my little tins that I orderd as packaging for my stitch markers....some are in one LYS and there is another that I am going to try and sell them in.

I hope I started something great too :-)

They're such fun to do aren't they? You can make them as individual as you like too, I'm into pearls and things at the moment, it depends on my knitting yarn. Good for you for having the initiative to go out there to sell them.
