Handmade Component Bazaar One Day Artist Show November 1, 2018

I am keeping pace with at least 1 Facebook Group show a month through January 2019. This month I will have my work for sale in the Handmade Component Bazaar Group. I start listing items around 10am EST on Nov. 1st and clear the wall on Nov. 2 around 8am (cleared by 10am for the next artist).

Here are some photos of the pieces ready for you!

Marsha Neal Studio Handmade Ceramic Bead Pairs (I call these Earring Sized Pairs)

Marsha Neal Studio Ceramic Stoneware Rustic Stone Space Bead Sets (some in pairs, others just one of six different rustic glaze colors).

A selection of my handmade ceramic beads including some ornament shaped pieces.

I wrote up a blog post over on Art Elements about using wooden rolling pins to create the texture for some of these ornaments.

Handmade Component Bazaar Facebook Group

If you’ve never participated in one of these Facebook Group sales, it is pretty easy:

  1. Click Join if the group is closed (this helps keep spammers out).
  2. Scroll down the page to see what is for sale or click on the group Photos tab.
  3. Read the description and see if you want to purchase (your commenting on a photo with the intent to buy is your contract to buy).
  4. Some artists offer MTO (Made To Order), BIN (Buy It Now), and often you will see a Starting Bid, with increments of $1 (whole dollar) until BIN is met or auction closes. It all depends on the artist, and it is useful to look at the artists introductory post for details.
  5. Shipping is usually added onto the invoice cost. And most payment is by PayPal as it is easiest. You often just message the seller your PayPal email address. If you don’t have a PayPal account, the artist should be able to send you an invoice which you can use PayPal to pay – without having an actual account. I do not know exactly how this works, but people mention they have done it before.
  6. If you are ordering international, it is up to you to pay any additional fees in taxes or otherwise if your country decides to hit you with fees. They will get their money any way they can…
  7. Look for Giveaways! With Facebook, if you comment on a post, it usually shows up in people’s feeds. So artists offer giveaways to entice you to buy from their show, connect with their customers and also to help get their work seen by more people. It is greatly appreciated and a lot of fun to read through the answers.

And with that, I am off to go get ready for my show! I hope to see you over there or if you missed this show, look for me on December 4, 2018 in the One Sweet Bead Market Show or January 3, 2019 in the Handmade Component Bazaar Group again. My Marsha Neal Studio Etsy Shop is always available!
