ewellery has been used throughout history to add a little extra sparkle and style to an outfit, and today jewellery stores are more popular than ever before, with hundreds of retailers in our high streets and online. Costume jewellery is a popular choice for many customers because it tends to be reasonably priced and can often look just as expensive as fine jewellery. Due to its popularity, the market for costume jewellery is unlikely to dwindle, which makes it the perfect line of business to get into. If you’ve been thinking about setting up a small business, check out these three reasons why costume jewellery should be your product of choice.
Costume jewellery tends to be made with relatively inexpensive materials, and merchants can get their hands on gorgeous jewellery that looks fantastic at very low prices in order to add a generous markup. At Vicki Jane Jewellery we regularly stock clearance lines for even lower prices; this is the perfect place to start if you want to begin selling costume jewellery and have a limited budget for stock. As your stock begins to move, you can invest your profits back into more jewellery and keep those profits rolling in.
Choose your own hours
Selling products online from home, for example on eBay, Amazon or another marketplace, gives you the flexibility to pick and choose your hours of work. If you want to earn a little extra cash alongside your normal job, you can work as much or as little as you like and fit your business in easily with the rest of your busy life.
Easy to store
Costume jewellery is small, lightweight and incredibly easy to store, making it the perfect product to sell from home; all you need is a box, chest, or set of drawers or shelves, depending on how big your stock is. For market traders this is perfect too; you could easily keep your stock in a secure vehicle or at home when you’re not out on your stall.
