This coming Monday, November 17th, marks the first public appearance for Laine's Babies. I am really excited and am hopefull for a good showing.
Last Spring I held a "Spring Event" for all my mommy vendor friends. It was a way for me to be helpful in gaining them some exposure and new clients. I have to admit, unfortunately, it didn't turn out quite as wonderful as I had hoped. None the less, I think they did gain a couple clients and I learned not to book such an event on a busy weekend such as VEISHA.
This time around I have carefully advertised our event through free local newspapers, flyers, online communities, word of mouth and community event calendars. I am hoping it pays off.
I have managed to put together a number of items for sale. My fear is that either no one will buy anything or I will have sold out of what little I have, so I am praying for the later. There is a huge time crunch to get everything together within 1/2 hour. This means I have to:
- set up tables and chairs
- set up my display
- set out the road sign and balloons
- set up the Christmas tree and decorations
- get the beverages made up
- run the Christmas DVD for the kids
- figure out how to prop open the heavy doors!
- help everyone else with their luggage?
If you're in the area, drop in for a chance to win some awesome door prizes!
