Wow! Over one year since we first began making pallet signs. We officially began on May 27, 2015 and at the time it seemed like it might be a small hobby but now we see it has grown into a small side business with tons of potential. I still cannot believe how well our work is received. This past month we went to two shows in the area and sold many, many signs further showing us that we need to keep going with making even more unique, one of a kind, pieces. What we keep finding is more and more people are coming back and ordering custom work from us again and again.
To date we have sold over 300 pieces! This is pretty incredible and we look forward to increasing this number in the coming years! Thanks everyone for all of your support!
The nice weather has really got me motivated. I just got in another 12 pallets which I am going to have Anthony take apart for me this weekend to make some signs as well as trying out a few new ideas I have been thinking about. Stay tuned for some pictures of those if they turn out good!
The nice weather has also got me working on spring cleaning. I have dropped the prices on some of my older signs so be sure to take a look and see if there is anything you like. Holiday items in particular can be had at up to 50% off.
I am excited to announce that we are officially starting show season! We are starting off with the spring show at the CAC in Sherril on Saturday, April 2nd from 10am-4pm. I have a booth on the main floor and am excited to be able to show off some of the new work that I have been working on.
On Saturday, April 30th, from 10am-4pm, I will be at the 2016 Forever Baby Expo at the SRC Arena and Events Center in Syracuse NY. This one day show had 12,000 people last year which is huge! This show is totally free and features both national and regional vendors. The is CNY's largest New and Expecting Baby Expo and I am sure to have many baby themed items. Check it out on Facebook here.
I have been busy with a few new pieces today as well as working on a custom order for a wedding later this year. They are going to turn out great. I have also been working on the website and I decided that I would like to start up a small email newsletter with some information about the making of some of these pieces. A little behind the scenes access to Kym's Pallet Art. If you have anything that you would like to ask or that you would like included in this let me know!
To join our mailing list today and we will send you a coupon code for $10.00 off your first purchase of $50.00 or more! This can be done here.
Wow! One day and the site is up and operational. This is crazy. My husband has a degree in computer science and works in IT and he thought it would take weeks if not months to get the site moved over to a point where it would be operational with a full service shopping cart and checkout methods. He was going to program this from scratch! I told him to give Weebly a shot and wow it has paid off. Score one for the better half.
If anyone is looking for advice on starting a small business website please contact me as I would love to share more about my experience.
Be sure to check out the gallery with some of my recent work. And as always if you have a special piece in mind please contact me and I'll work to make it a perfect piece for you!
We are working on creating a new website with our new domain KymsPalletArt.com. Please take a look as we are working on getting all of our products moved over from our previous website CNYOriginals.com. If you have any questions or any suggestions for us please contact us!
