Are you ready? Spidersí Market is almost here!
March 22-23th, 2013 Albuquerque Garden Center 9-5 Friday and
The next Spiders' Market Sale is March 22 & 23, 2013, open 9:00 -
5:00. Take in and set - up will be March 21. Mark your calendar.
Spiders' Market is open to all fibers techniques, fiber related
items, equipment and books. It's a good idea to have an inventory
that ranges in prices from under $10 on up. Last year our average
sale was $25 but I'm starting to hear comments from customers about
buying for Xmas gifts and they are starting to look more at
clothing. Trends are showing cowls, shawlets and caplets this fall.
We had a good selection of scarves and shawls last year for sale but
few ruanas or ponchos. We always need WOW pieces for the mannequins.
We try to change the mannequins twice in the morning and twice in
the afternoon and we sell a lot of items off those displays. The
strong point in this sale is the diversity and the quality of our
products. It's easy to get fixated on producing for selling but I
think it is more important to do what you love, in the colors that
you love and have fun while you are doing it than to second guess
what will sell. March is not that far away.
