Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you actually hit jackpot !
I hit the jackpot with this haul – although at a certain steep price !
Jewelry making is a small endeavor, I pursued a few months back. I totally love making statement pieces of necklaces, chokers, earrings and bracelets. I especially love the leather creations.
However, I had to buy some jewelry display stands which was costing me an arm and a leg 😦
After a couple of weeks, I turned to #Dubizzle and came across this lady who was helping a friend, get rid of all her jewelry display stands, bust etc. Her friend had closed her gold jewelry store in the Gold souk and had dumped the stands, with her friend to try and sell them.
I was happy to take it off her hands, but she wanted to make a profit and keep a cut for herself – instead of giving the amount to her friend !!!
Long story short. We bought a couple of bags from her. And a little dusting and polishing later, this is how they looked :-
I will be sharing a post on all the trunk shows as well as exhibitions, that I participated in, where you will find these darlings displaying my handmade jewelry.
I am glad that I did not spend pots of money on new display stands and got to reuse old ones. It fits completely with my belief and principle of recycle and repurpose too. I
How do you think, I did ?
Do you have something like Dubizzle in your country ? A platform where you can buy/sell household/business related/ cars etc in your immediate vicinity.
I am sharing my haul with my lovely friends here.
