JEWELRY DISPLAY & STORAGE:
There are many storage/tote choices, depending on the size of your collection and your
individual preference. Your 3-piece Silver Keeper totes will be sufficient while you’re
getting started. As your collection grows you may wish to go to a tray system with velvet
liners and a rolling carrying case. This should cost no more than $100 and is available on
one of the jewelry display websites listed later. Anti-tarnish papers keep the jewelry nice.

DISPLAY:
      Large table cover – black works well
      Props for creating different levels for your jewelry display
       (first look for items around your house: Pringles cans and baskets under the
       tablecloth to drape bracelets over or act at risers; decorative boxes, shells, etc. Or
       display props can be purchased from the websites listed later.)
      Frames for signs and “table talkers”
      Jewelry tags are optional; different styles are available from the websites
      Mirrors -- both hand held and floor/tabletop styles are nice
      Individual alcohol wipes for cleaning earring wires
      Large Rubbermaid tote helps to keep everything in for transporting

       invitation postcards, business opportunity folders, hostess envelopes, all brochures
      Assemble 5-10 Hostess Packets at a time

       (You will find contents for both of these in your Learning System Manual)

       open dates available, pen, business cards, etc.
      Set up separate email mailbox just for your business
