When business is challenging, don't you hate to hear that question--how's business?  Well, this newsletter is dedicated to trying to make the answer, "great!", even if we are exaggerating a little. 


We are into fall and there are fashion and fun items people think they need and we want to by Johnny-on-the-spot to provide.  Homecoming, Halloween, football season, and fall church hats are all creating demand right now and some customers are looking for early Christmas and Mardi Gras items.   Here are some time-tested items to fill the needs. 






Homecoming Jewelry

Rhinestone and Crystal Jewelry-the Sure Bet

We are in the heat of homecoming season for high schools and universities across the nation.  In addition to parades, tailgating, and football games, most homecomings have a court and a dance.  It is the homecoming court and the dance that calls for items you can supply. 


Dressy jewelry has the greatest demand.  Every woman going to the dance rhinestone necklace set with color highlights needs sparkly accessories.  This is fall's version of prom and many retailers overlook the opportunity.  Both rhinestone and crystal jewelry are important in necklace sets, bracelets, earrings, and hair accessories.  


The infatuation with iridescent crystals continues to obsess today's shoppers.  So including some iridescent rhinestone and crystal jewelry is a must.   The rhinestone necklace set we are showing has jet highlights, but also has an option for iridescent stones.  This necklace set is eye-catching without overwhelming.  Members of the court, especially the queen, usually want jewelry that makes more of a statement. The crystal choker set in the sidebar provides exquisite design that is irresistible.  


Combinations of dramatic earrings and bracelets are a popular substitute for dramatic iridescent crystal earrings for prom necklace sets for many of today's shoppers.  Find bracelets on the site under the categories for rhinestone jewelry and crystal jewelry.  The crystal bracelet in the sidebar is an exceptional look with iridescent stones and gold plating. 


Dramatic earrings are also located under both categories with some especially exciting styles (like the ones shown) located in crystal earrings. 


So why did we call rhinestone and crystal jewelry a sure bet in the title?  Because glitzy jewelry has need beyond homecoming.  Holidays, Mardi Gras, and prom are coming and all call for sparkly jewelry.  Pageant, dance competition, choirs, performances are just a few more occasions that will need sparkly accessories.   


Dress Hats for Homecoming and Church

The Homecoming Accessory that is Hard to Find

Many homecomings have events that call for the court to wear dress hatswholesale homecoming hats   These hats are usually fall hats in wool felt, often with smaller brims.  The wool felt hat shown is a prime example of dress hats for homecoming. 


At the same time homecoming is going on, church ladies are also looking for fall dress hats also.  This increases the size of your audience and gives you more opportunities for sales. 


Dress hats have limited supply, which is good for you once shoppers know you are a source.  


Halloween Jewelry, Masks, and Crazy Hats

A Major Retail Event

Start early making a splash with Halloween items.  You don't want to look high quality Halloween pumpkin pendant like Wal-Mart and you don't have to.  You can do Halloween with class.  Begin with boutique quality in Halloween jewelry.  Under the category on the site, there are Halloween lampwork bead bracelets, puffy metal pendants, pins, and earrings.  There are also enameled bracelets, resin earrings, and plenty of neckties and scarves in Halloween themes.  The puffy pumpkin pendant for Halloween we are showing has pin back so can also serves as a brooch.    


This provides accessories for grown-ups that are going to work on Friday, witches hat the day of Halloween.  But for kids and grown ups going to Halloween parties, there are novelty hats.  This is the day of the year when everyone can be whoever they want to be.  The witch hat shown is popular every Halloween.  Novelty hats provide the option to be a king, a pirate, a nun, a princess, or any of dozens of other characters just by putting on the hat. 


Then there are novelty sunglasses-a costume your customer can put in their pocket.  Have some fun.  Browse the novelty sunglasses that include Diva glasses, google eyes, giant cateye glasses, and beer mugs among others.
