How to sell your Jewelry in Florist Shops
Jewelry and flowers go well together - they both attract similar buyers and make attractive harmonizing ladies gifts.
Write a personal business-like letter and mail to your local florists, with a sample of your craft and suggestions of cross promotions.
Mention you’ll call in person to discuss the idea or collect the sample if they’re not interested.
Follow up by telephone to arrange an appointment a week later.
Some ideas for cross promotion are:
Offer their customers a 15% discount voucher off custom jewelry for flower orders over a certain amount.
Offer your customers a 10% discount off flowers on orders over a certain amount.
Leave your jewelry at the florist with a leaflet or voucher selling the item at 25% off if they spend a certain amount on flowers.
Valentine’s Day promotions can be very effective.
Like the chance to buy a matching pearl necklace and earrings at a discount, if they spend over $50 on flowers
Make sure you give the florist a clear list of whatever jewelry you leave with them, with a collection date of unsold items.
