I have a fairly extensive catalog of items on my website. There are almost 100 items listed and most of them have a variety of color and design options. I am sure my inventory guy would be able to tell me exactly how many items I keep in stock, but numbers make me anxious, so let's just say... lots! Sometimes, one items will start to sell repeatedly over the course of a few weeks. Sometimes, a designer will get a project published or republished and they will use one of my pieces. I might not even know about it until the magazine hits the shelves and I start selling that one item that is in the project, or start getting inquiries if I don't have it in stock. This is what happened recently with my cherry charms. I have been trying to figure out why they are selling so much, other than that they are wicked cute. It was an unusual trend. Turns out, they were used in the project below, Cherry Bomb, by Denise Yezbak Moore, in the latest issue of Stringing Magazine. Mystery solved! Thanks Denise!
