My 2nd trunk show is on over on Glass Open Market https://www.facebook.com/groups/GlassOpenMarket/. Thanks to those that have popped by to support me already. I am pleased to say it is going far better than last time, so far, so fingers crossed xxxxxx

I spoke too soon. I messed up big time ::) I sat waiting to close my first set of listings at 2am, and fell asleep. Woke up at 5.30am and missed all my American sales. I have come to the conclusion that these trunk shows are not for me. I can't handle the time difference. At least when they wake up it will be a Saturday and I might still get the sales. fingers crossed xx

Sorry!  That's the sort of thing I'd do, but not wake up until 8am :)  How do the others manage?  Are they up all night?

Someone suggested getting a Brit site going - but then they'll all moan about the $ thing and the times......... most of my sales are to USA/Canada, only had a few to UK/Europe.

I think some people just stick to more reasonable times, starting at 9 or 10am uk time? My little show I chose to go on till 2am but that's because I only had 18 hours to do it in. I don't think you need to start at the very beginning time but I'm sure one of the others who has done a few more will confirm.

Am sure you will make up for it at happy hour :) that seemed to be a totally bonkers hour!!

Sue, it was me who thought about a UK site. I am not sure if we would get enough people to do a UK trunk show, but the Americans could join ours. If I started one it would nice to have some input on what time to start and finish and a better way to do the calender to keep everyone happy. What does everyone think? Would anyone be interested?

I ran my trunk show to times to suit me, with no problems - there is no way I could do otherwise.  So long as you are up front with your times, they will come and buy.  :)

Not sure I could get the work together at the moment.  Not sure you'd get Americans to join in here, doesn't the world revolve around their time zones and currency?

Maybe its a none starter. I like the idea, but don't think I would have the time needed to do it.
