So it's the second sale of the year- a big consignment sale that I'm a vendor at. Last time I did this sale (spring)...I walked away from the whole 5 days with about 30-drawing slips- about 10-12 "leads". I got all but maybe 5 of those in the first 2-3 days. Today was day #1. I got 1 slip. The body language and folks at the sale just wasn't the same. Not nearly as many people, and it just wasn't jiving for me today. I stopped at Michael's on my way home to try an idea tomorrow. I picked up a couple packs of small gift-bags in some nice colors. I'm going to stick my mini-cat, recipe card, and a flyer (w/2 recipes and a coupon), in the bag, and maybe a few pieces of candy (it's a kids sale )....I'm also going to take some of the coupons/brochures from 2 others ( a retail kids store coupon, and a local mom's website flyer) in the bag- making basically a Vendor bag so to speak. I thought I'd give out the "goodie bag" and see what happens- if people stop to chat a bit more, long enough to let them know about my drawing, too. Tomorrow is the first day open to the public, so hopefully more people Friday and Saturday. What do you think? I'm not the most outgoing person-- so events like this can be tough for me to be pushy- especially since they aren't coming to see vendors but to find a bargain on kids stuff.
