PS I made my (first) site with homestead, that is very user friendly for newbies.
Offline selling was not my thing either. My items are too expensive for fairs and craft markets. I use gemstones and silver mostly and the average price for a necklace is about $ 75. People are not going to pay that on a fair.
Jewelry home parties do work however. She can ask a friend or a family member to host a party for her and that will at least get her going. I generally sell for at least $ 200 on an evening like that and it's a good place to leave cards etc.
I always gives the hostess a discount of 10% of the evening's revenue on her purchase, to make it interesting for her and for her trouble.
