I know that some of you were interested in ideas on how to set up a booth. I did one today & actually took pictures!!! But they would only let us have one table at this event, so I had to be creative with very limited space.

Oh that looks very nice. I wish I was as creative as you, but seeing a picture gives an idea on how to create a nice table. Thanks!

The board with the flyer was purchased at the 100 Yen store (our Dollar Tree/Dollar General)! :D It's one of the black magnet boards that you can write on with chalk or liquid chalk. I paid 315 Yen (current exchange rate: $3.54) for the board and 100 Yen ($1.12) for the cheap easel stand.

I really wanted the wooden crates that I could stack on the corners of my table and put items inside, but I couldn't find them. I found the little "stools" at another Japanese store for 2300 Yen ($25.84).

I ALWAYS put business cards all over the table!!! That way, people can pick up one. If you notice, there are some on the magnet board too. I always have out a few with the magnet backings that I bougt from Merrill. Some people jump at the magnet ones to put on their fridge, other's prefer the regular ones to put in their purse. By offering both, I can let the customer choose their preference. ;) ETA: I also walk around and check for gaps every 20-30 min's and add more cards as needed.

The booth was a Christmas event at the local Community Center here on the Military Base. People were really there for the little festival in the parking lot, Santa and the parade. But could come inside and walk around the Home Based Vendor tables too. Since I can't do cash & carry, there were not many people ordering. My recruit took 2 orders for about $75 that she's going to add to her current host's show and booked 2 January shows. After she left, I took $45 in orders that I'm going to add to a current host's show and I also booked 2 January shows. I also think I may have picked up a recruit. She went home to see if she's still in the 6 months or if it already expired. She was asking about switching over to me (which I explained that she can't do but I'd still be happy to support her here on the island) or re-signing under me.

So basically $120 in sales, 4 bookings and possibly 1 recruit. The booth was FREE. Not too shabby for 5 hours of my day.

Is your Japanese Dollar store a Daiso? We have one here in Seattle & I LOVE their stuff!!! I've bought a lot of business supplies there. :)

Dottie, they just have "100 Yen" as the name. I've never seen Daiso anywhere on the building or receipts.

Thanks Patty! :D

I don't think I've been to that one. I'm on Kadena. I usually go to the one up at Navel Kadena. (I think it's hilarious that they spell it "navel" and not "naval" LOL)

Here are a few pictures of different booths that I have done for the last couple of months. I try to take pictures each time I do a booth.

If I only had a digital camera!

I just finished a board ... picture a "tri-fold" like kids use to do their science projects.

The left side has JANUARY SPECIALS and the right side has FEBRUARY SPECIALS (These can be changed easily.)

The middle has EXPLORE THE BENEFITS OF HOSTING A SHOW WITH THE PAMPERED CHEF and has the booking coupons mounted on hot pink paper.

Below it is the Holiday Help Wanted sign.

It is very bright, colorful and hopefully attention-getting!

That was my favorite too!! The 100 Yen stores had such FUN things - so much better than our dollar stores here!

Di can you post a picture of your tri-fold board?

Also, have those that attended fairs or festivals been successful in booking shows? I'm thinking about signing up for a home and garden show in my town along with a few other gals, I really just want to use it as an opportunity to make contacts and book shows.

Today's booth. I was on allergy medication and felt so drowsy and out of it. I was running late & threw this one together without a lot of thought. I finally got a break about 1.5 hours into the event to stop & take some photos. I'm noticing that some of the business cards are gone from the front of the table! I should have filled in the gaps, but was so tired I wasn't paying attention. There are also a few things not laying "straight" from where customers had been looking at stuff ... so forgive that part please! :D

I just did my first booth at a Christmas Bizarre today. It was the first year they have done it and traffic was really slow. Being a first-timer, I decided that if I came home with one booking, I would call it a success. Well, I have 5!! 2 Catalog shows and 3 parties. 4 of them are in January also!! I am thrilled. I gave a door prize of a $10 gift certificate to anyone who filled out a slip and then a $25 gift certificate to anyone who booked a party or made a purchase. As I look through my slips I have 3 more that said they want a party and 3 maybes. I'm so excited!! This gives me 7 parties in January including my own Mystery party. Yeah!!

I've done several in the last year...from traditional street fairs, to school fundraiser fairs, and a consignment sale (week long) in which I wasn't always on-site (so little product sometimes).

Here are a few snapshots...

J&K - Love your Trifold board with the Apron on it! Clean and simple and draws your eye! I'll have to remember that (when one of my kids outgrows their apron...which won't be long!).

I may get a card for Christmas to show mine ...

My trifold board is almost identical .. except instead of the apron I used Booking Coupons. Do a search for them. They are colorful and look really nice when mounted on colored paper.

Sheila, what is the paper inside the mini candycanes?

I've been trying to find ways to stack and elevate product. I love this!

That's not something I did, it's "The Candy Cane Story" that's printed on the wrapper by the manufacturer. ;)

On your posterboard, are those sheet protectors that your specials are in so you can switch them out? Very cool.

I did get alot of leads, and it was like a magnetic and it drawn people to the board 1st and then they would start asking questions and then shopping in that order for each person.

I am doing a Ladies Bazaar this week.

I am really thinking of just bringing the Starter Kit items and the Host special for April and the Help Whip Cancer Items for May... ohhh and the DCB! :)

Then I was going to cut out pics in an old catalog and group them together showing everything a HOST can get just by having a fun night out with their friends & putting those on a poster board....

Of course..then I can put a sign/poster next to the Starter Kit products telling them this is everything + paperwork, etc to get your Business started..etc etc & put the new "Amazing" brochure next to that..

Then I thought next to the DCB...I will show the Limited-Time Offer New Recruits Reward program brochure showing them all the EXTRA products they can get RIGHT NOW!

What does everyone think of just bringing just these products to the Bazaar??
Any other ideas?

These all look so great. I am quite nervous. I have a booth coming up in October and the only things I have are my starter kit and few other items I got when I just hosted a party before becoming a consultant.

The tri fold boards look great! and I love the signs and table covers. I just don't have any extra cash to order anything right now.

and what do you put the printed recipe cards on (if you print them out yourself?) I would think something sturdy like an index card...
