Yesterday I learned how to fill out a customs form for shipping internationally. Since our Ruby Lane shop is view-able internationally we get orders from all over. We have had orders from almost every continent and Australia and Canada are our two best costumers. You have to fill out three copies of a customs for so it is a lot of duplication. Also we use padded envelopes instead of the flat rate boxes we use for US orders.
My mother is going back to work meaning I am going to have to take over the store more. Meaning a lot more time will be spent answering emails and dealing with customers. Something I have a little practice with meaning I am technically prepped for this job. I look forward to becoming a larger part of Market Treasures even though I do a lot for the website as is.

Victors Productions is home to all of my projects. My way of keeping you in the loop of what I have done, will be doing and currently working on. Here I will post about my business Market Treasures and how that is going. I will tell you when and where we will be doing shows and posting what we add online. Here will be the central nervous system of my internet presence.
I will also talk about my promotions work with PromotionsNJ. Sharing what I share on the Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Also I will keep you posted on my next two and a half months with JC Promotions, Inc.. A great company that puts on street fairs, craft shows and flea markets in the New Jersey area. Stay tuned for more flea market info in the coming weeks.
Thanks so much for listening to my ramblings,
From their website:
JC Promotions, Inc., is a professional event planning company. In business for over 20 years, JC specializes in fundraising events and work with over 75 organizations throughout the year to bring a variety of events into their communities. Most of our events are held all over New Jersey. JC specializes in coordinating street fairs, arts and craft shows, photography shows, collectible shows and flea markets.
STREET FAIRS–Our street fairs bring in 5,000-60,000 people, depending on the location. These community-oriented events offer great shopping with over 150 street vendors and local businesses. There are kiddie rides, pony rides, delicious food and lively music.
CRAFT SHOWS-Our craft shows are juried and feature artisans displaying and selling their “personally handmade” items. We also have an area where photographers and artists display there works at our street fairs called “Crafters Corner”. This section is in the center of our street fairs and exclusively features artists and crafters.
FLEA MARKETS-Our flea markets are very popular. We have a wide range of vendors selling a huge selection of goods at great prices. There is new merchandise being sold as well as second-hand merchandise. Our flea markets are made up of approximately 60% new merchandise vendors, 30% tag sale, antiques and collectibles vendors and 10% arts & crafts exhibitors. During the holiday season this changes with more vendors coming in selling new items, crafts items and gift items.
The garage and tag sale section at our flea market is all the rage with visitors to the event. Our 2nd-hand vendors sell a hodgepodge of items including vintage, antiques and bric-a-brac. Many local people decide to hold their own tag sales at our market when they know we will be in their town. Whether you’re a bargain hunter or a treasure hunter, we have the selection you’re looking for!
FUND RAISING FOR YOUR GROUP-If your organization would like to hold one of these events as your fundraiser, just give us a call or email us. If you’d like, we will meet with your group to discuss the process. As the beneficiary of the fundraiser, your group will receive a portion of the proceeds without any out of pocket expense to you. Seem to good to be true?
Just link onto “JC’s List of Sponsoring Organizations. This list contains the names of the many groups that work with us to raise funds and/or to showcase their cause or club. We are pleasant to work with, we do 99% of the work, we are fully insured and we come equipped with a gym floor cover (if needed for an indoor event).
We make it easy to raise money. On our event page there is a link to over 20 references from just some of our sponsoring organizations. Check it out and then decide if you’d like to get involved.
EVENT CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP (for businesses that want to showcase themselves in the community)- JC offers corporate sponsorships for our larger events, such as, street fairs and arts & crafts shows. By becoming a corporate sponsor, your business will be highlighted in our promotion for the show and on our website. You can also sponsor an attraction at the show such as: the entertainment, the clowns, the rides and so on. Call or E-mail us to have a representative discuss our corporate sponsorship program.
It’s an excellent way to get exposure for your business with thousands of local people strolling through our event. Many sponsors pass out free items, information, candy and many other things. It’s an opportunity to meet and greet the community.
We are a mother and son run jewelry vendor both online and in person. We carefully select an assortment of vintage jewelry from garage sales, flea markets, rummage sales and precious metals scrappers.
Our goal is to save the unique and beautiful from the current melting trend. We need your help though! Without customers to buy these distinct and interesting pieces, we too will fall into the pot. We try to maintain a wide array of price points so that everyone can help. Please consider our selection for the jewelry lover in your life.
Lately I have been beefing up my production and marketing skills. I got an internship with a studio last year and now I am interning with JC Promotions, Inc.. I also started my own business Market Treasures. Market Treasures has been a real eye opener for me. I get to take the pictures and edit them for the website. So I am able to keep some of my lighting and camera skills. Plus I started multiple social media marketing pages which I will link to.
I put together this Fan Page for JC Promotions, Inc. : https://www.facebook.com/JCPromotionsINC
That page is what I have been putting a lot of my time into. Hope you enjoy it. Here is a link for the company I am working work for, JC Promotions, Inc.: http://www.jcpromotions.info/
