We have gotten through the first quarter of 2009 and now, almost the second quarter. How is your shop weathering the economic storm?
Last fall when the economy slowed down, GalleriaLinda made a commitment to expand products to offer more items that were lower price but still high quality. Because I make jewelry, I decided to start a line of interesting earrings using high-quality Czech glass, vintage beads, and sterling wire that were priced $12.99 across the board.
In the last few months, I have connected with several new customers that wanted earrings to brighten their wardrobe!
This strategy was one that you could say met the needs of the economy and was considerate of the customer. A lady can update her wardrobe with $12.99 earrings and not spend a fortune.
I hope that you have weathered the economic storm. I see that the economy is loosening up a bit, as sales seem to be more frequent!
