    What order forms does everyone use at craft shows? Do you use the sales receipts that come in supply orders OR the outside order forms from consultants corner?

    I use the receipts so they can go home with a copy.

    I use the 3ply sheets so that they have my contact info, guarantee info on a copy they can take home.

    Thanks for bringing this one up. I'm planning to do a Church Craft show in November.
    The three part form sure saves lots of headaches about what was really ordered. It
    also gives you a permanent place to find their credit card numbers since they are reduced to the final four digits once they are transmitted to HO.

    I am curious what exhibiting at a Craft Fair costs for a 6 ft. or 8 ft. table? In my recent
    quest for the rates, our parish quoted $28 and $35 respectively for a Sat. 8AM to 3PM,
    with a request for an item donated for their raffle which was optional.

    Sounds like the 3-ply receipts are the way to go! I just have to remember not to charge tax on the shipping here in Ohio and the forms are set up to do that. Thanks for your input and suggestions!

    I use the 3-ply since most orders are from people I don't know, and who don't have contact with a "hostess".

    Everyone else said what I wa going to say! I use the FREE 3-ply we get with our first supply order. It is usually enough to get me through each season.

    I will be using LAST season's leftovers (I over ordered--oops!) at every craft show. I do direct ship for most craft show orders anyway.

    My craft show was wonderful! This was the first year that this church held the craft show and it was rather slow all day. But I did get 2 orders and 1 booking scheduled at the booth! I also have 4 more that are "maybe" and a couple that are 100% PC fans but not interested in booking, just buying. Not bad for a slow day. I do plan on following up with phone calls tomorrow night, but I am not completely sure what to say to these individuals to encourage them to book. I also have one lady that told me she just started a new job and asked me to call her in a month because she may book a show after the first of the year.

    Anyone have a script of some kind that they use when following up on fair leads?
    Thanks!
