So, after calling, emailing, and researching online greeting card rack companies from all over the U.S. I located a local shop in St. Pete where I was able to purchase racks at a reasonable rate.
Although this probably sounds mundane and boring, its super exciting to me because it will now free me up to be able to sell larger quantities of cards because I can offer retailers a way to display them.
I now look at racking as a prized possession. Funny how your priorities change in life. First its diamonds you covet then greeting card racks! Just kidding about the diamonds thing!
So all is well in the quest for sellings cards. Oh and also I am starting to get sales of my cards on ETSY! Yay!! For those who havent been on ETSY the address is http://www.karenlucchesedesigns.etsy.com/ it is a site that sells all handmade items online with a group of wonderful artists! Love the site and love looking at all of the talented folks on there. Lots of fun!!
So the next time you are looking for a unique gift ( a term way over used but still true) go on ETSY and support someone's dream. It sounds a little corny but trust me it is TRUE!!!
On a final note... It is a beautiful day in sunny Florida so I will get out and enjoy a little gardening today.
Lastly, if you have been watching coverage of the disaster in Japan, please think about making a contribution to the RED CROSS or any other charity that is assisting those beautiful and proud people who are so desperate for help. The scenes of the devastation are very humbling to watch. I can't even begin to imagine what their lives will be like and we are so fortunate here to have all that we have...
