Here's a method you may like to employ to sell your items.
Similar to Tupperware, Contact friends and ask them to bring friends of friends along and have a party in your home.
I did a couple of these a few years ago and the response was fantastic.
I even went one step further and offered anyone that would like a party, 10% cash or 15% in kind of the sales they made.
I had to knock back a couple of parties as I couldn't cope with the demand.
My Daughter uses a similar method to sell her jewellery near Xmas. Holds a couple of parties and makes good money.
"The Golden Mile"
“In my acting, I have to identify with something in the character. The big tough boy on the side of right—that’s me. Simple themes. Save me from the nuances. All I do is sincerity, and I’ve been selling the hell out of that ever since I started.

John, good to see you posting again. That's a very good idea! Have a scroll-a-ware party.

Yes, good to hear from you, John. I had a similar notion a few years ago (intarsiaware, I guess, in my case). Thought about having an at-home party, doing the wine and cheese thing (or maybe just coffee and brownies) in the pre-Christmas season. Never got around to it. Hearing that it's been a successful venture for you and your daughter, maybe it's time to rethink the idea. Thanks for the post. And don't be a stranger. I may have questions!

This is a great idea John. I've been considering building stock up for a few markets later in the year, might have to throw a party or two in there as well!
