How to storage stuff for sales
« on: February 11, 2012, 01:29:44 PM »
Hi all,

As you know - I now have a shop..

But I wonder how to store the jewelry until (if) selling, as I really don't like the idear of a pile.. And if stored in zipperbags I'm afraid, the strings will be cramped or what you call it (you know, when leader and strings get like wrinklet).. So what do you do..

Most of my stuff is beads or earrings so easy to store. Necklaces get stored in boxes with an anti tarnish tab if they need it

i store made up jewellery in  the cardboard presentation boxes that I use to sell them in. Then they are easy to stack and keep neat and tidy. I strongly recommend attaching a photo of whatever is inside each box (I put an elastic band round the box and slip the photo underneath) just to save the constant hassle of having to open every box to find what you want  :)

That's a really good idea Shirley! Saves opening every box until you find what you are looking for.

My mother will always say to me "oh well - it's always in the last place you look" and I think, well duh - yeah - cos I stop looking after that!

But I think she has a point, because its never in the FIRST place we look is it! But with your photo idea.... problem solved!

Rings, earrings and small pendants in boxes, Larger things in grip~seal bags to stop them getting mucky. I store everything for transport in big plastic storage boxes.

I give all the items I make a product code & when I used to store them in box's I used to put a sticky label on the side with the code. That was when I just made jewellery through & to be honest just took up to much space/room. So now I keep jewellery in organizer bags in a larger box. I still need to sort out a way to store my polymer stuff though!

Great idea Shirley I will try and remember that!

I tend to have a couple of big boxes that I lay my jewellery in with sheets on kitchen towel between them. I used to store them by type of item but at the moment I am storing them by colour as when I do a sale I display them by colour at the moment. That way when I am setting up they come out in the groups I want to put them. I don't sell online yet so I haven't had to think about that. I am not completely sure what's in each box though so I am sure I could do something more efficient!
