Is there a place it the Quad Cities where I can I sell jewelry I make?

I also make bookmarks, phone charms, tablecloth weights, beaded spiders, beaded butterflies, beaded crosses, and anything else I can think of.

Most people get in crafts shows. You need to find your nitch and call the chamber of commerce and ask for a list of art or craft shows where you can buy a booth space and set up for selling your goods. Most people start small, like church bazaars,etc. with small booth fees, like about $25 or $50 and go from there. Of your goods sell well, then you can work your way up the craft ladder and start doing more expensive shows. I'm sure there are many, many opportunities in the Quad City area.

Hi Red. Downtown dav has streets closed off for special events (like the Bix) 2 or 3 times a year. There's tons of venders and good food. Same with Mol, & RI. Not sure about Bett. There must b consignment shops too. Go to the village of e dav or to LeClaire. Ask the owners if they take consignments. Does your church have a little shop (books & stuff)? GL
