It's only August but I find my mind wandering to Christmas already. I have only one Christmas under my Baby Jewels belt so not a lot to go by, but it got very busy there for a couple of months and I'm thinking about whether I have enough baby jewellery and children's jewellery to see me through the festive season.
With the world hit by another round of recessions, will I need to stock up at all? If so, with what? I remember last year baby bracelets, baby bangles and children's bracelets were big sellers. Children's charms for little charm bracelets were also popular. At the present time I have hundreds of styles to choose from - do I need more?
I have been strolling round my favourite supplier's websites, mentally wish-listing what I will buy. I found some gorgeous little crystal children's necklaces the other day - tick! Charm bracelets for children are always popular, I must count up how many I have, and what sizes.
I even found myself looking for nice Christmas pictures for use on email-outs. I find it slightly mad that we retailers hold such hope for Christmas getting us through another year. But that's the way it is, and has been, for a very long time.
