Friendship bracelets.

     So I have decided to sell my friendship bracelets to make some extra cash (basically enough money to buy more string for more bracelets). I have been coming up with different designs instead of the normal ones that can be found any where and in any book. So far I have the awareness ribbons like I used at Relay for Life and DC comic inspired bracelets. Here are some pictures of what I have.

     Andrea says I need to get some Marvel comic inspired bracelets. This is a lot harder than I thought. So far I just have the Hulk. I'm also wanting to do some fairytale themed bracelets, but comic ones first.
     Now I just have to figure out what site to use to sell them, other than Facebook because people have to like the page. So I'm trying to figure out how to get the word out about the bracelets, but I don't really want to use Etsy.


  1. Best bet to get started, set up a separate email JUST for bracelet orders & make a FB page for it. It'll start slow, but as you get more likes, it'll spread. Especially if you print up cards or flyers to hang all over campus. This way you avoid fees from a selling site. Share the FB page as much as possible through YOUR FB page (Yes, I'll help too), through your Google +, on here, etc. By having the separate email, you can connect it to its own Instagram & Twitter as well. And it's own Pinterest, which you can Pin to from this blog. :-)

  2. I have a page set-up for my bracelets off of my Facebook page. I hadn't even thought about doing a separate email. I am using Moo for cards. I think the separate email address will be nice, but I don't know if I want to change the page. I may see if I can link the email address to the current page.
